Easy Cheeseburger Pot Pie

  • Author: Erin Browne
  • Total Time: 40 mins
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


  • 2 rolled refrigerated pie crusts at room temperature
  • 1lb lean ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 8oz can petite diced tomatoes
  • 2 TBS (heaping) dill pickles, finely chopped
  • 2 TBS ketchup
  • 2 tsp dijon mustard
  • Apprx 1 cup of shredded or sliced cheddar cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly spray a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray and place one of the pie crusts in the bottom, shaping it to the pan with your fingers. Set aside.
  2. In a large non-stick skillet, add the ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Brown the beef over medium heat until cooked through while breaking into crumbles with the spatula. Use a slotted spoon or spatula to transfer the beef to a bowl and set aside.
  3. Drain out most of the fat from the skillet, leaving a couple of teaspoons in the bottom. Add the chopped onion and cook until fragrant and tender.
  4. Add the canned tomatoes, pickles, ketchup, and dijon mustard to the onions and mix together. Return the cooked beef to the skillet, mix well, and allow to simmer 3-5 minutes. Give it a taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  5. Place skillet mixture into the prepared pie crust and cover the top with cheese. Place the remaining pie crust on top of the cheese and crimp the edges together.
  6. Use a butter knife to cut a few steam vents in the top crust and then bake on the center rack of oven for 20-25 minutes or until the crust is a pretty golden brown.
  7. Remove pie from oven and re-open steam vents if they have closed. Allow to cool for 10-15 minutes and then slice and serve hot.
