Dinner time can be hectic! And even if we plan out the meals, sometimes life has a way of getting in the way of our plan. These Quick and Easy Cheeseburger Pies are perfect to toss together on those nights when life is busy. Or better yet, cook up several batches of them on the weekend and have them stashed in the freezer, making dinner even easier!

The Cheeseburger Pies are great for dinner, pair them with a salad or fruit and you have a meal. The kiddos would also love these for an after-school snack!

We adapted a Betty Crocker recipe, Impossibly Easy Mini Cheeseburger Pies, by using our homemade biscuit mix, but you can certainly use Bisquick Mix, like Betty did.

The meat mixture…ground beef, onion, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and cheese really does taste like a Cheeseburger, especially when you add the chopped tomatoes on top.

    Haven’t tried this yet, but it looks perfect for packed lunches. Any advice on how to deforest and reheat?

    • Hi Leigh, to defrost, I would let them either sit in the refrigerator over night or on the counter for a few hours, they should defrost quickly because they aren’t too big. Then you can heat in the microwave in 30 second intervals (all microwaves are different)

    Thanks for having a homemade biscuit recipe. So many American recipes use shop-bought but in Scotland a biscuit is a very different thing! The closest thing we’d have would be a savoury scone but it’s not quite the same so I often skip recipes because I’m unsure how it would turn out.

    Not anymore! Look forward to trying this (and the Red Lobster one now too!)
