cheeseburger pie


Lighter version of a classic comfort food.  I’m always down for this cheeseburger deliciousness.  I lightened her up using ground turkey and she tastes like heaven.


  • 2 (10″) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded american cheese*
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, fine chop
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tbs all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard
  • 1 pickle, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced thin


Preheat oven to 400 F.

Spray or lightly grease with oil a 9″ pie oven safe pie plate.  Press one tortilla pie plate.  Sprinkle evenly with 1/4 cup shredded cheese.  Lay remaining tortilla on top and press down.  Spray lightly and bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to slightly cool.

In a large skillet, heat the 1 tsp olive oil on medium high.  Add the onion and cook until translucent – about 3 minutes.  Add the grated garlic and stir until fragrant – about 1 minute.  Add the ground turkey and with a wooden spoon, break up the meat until almost cooked through – about 5 minutes.  Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute.

Gradually add the broth, ketchup, Worcestershire and mustard.  Season with salt & pepper to taste.  Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and cook, stirring constantly – until thickens, about 3-4 minutes.

Transfer mixture to pie plate and top with pickles, tomatoes and remaining cheese.  Bake until melted & edges are browned… 10 -12 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly prior to slicing.

Yields 6 servings.
