Cheeseburger Pie - 2 net carbs per serving

Cheeseburger Pie is easy and tastes great. It's good for dinner but with sausage it's perfect for breakfast. This is another dish where your house guests will never know it's diet. This recipe is a low-carb adaptation of the "Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie" recipe that is printed on the inside of each box of Bisquick. To make it low carb, I have used carbquik (available on in place of Bisquick. This substitution gets rid of a whopping 27 net carbs. When using carbquik in Bisquick recipes containing meat, you will need to add some Parmesan cheese to absorb the grease. Without it, recipes like this one and the popular sausage cheese balls will be dripping in oil. I have also used Hood calorie countdown dairy in place of milk. If using milk, add 9 net carbs to the entire recipe or 1.5 net carbs per serving.

Servings: 6 @ 2 net carbs each


1 lb. ground beef or sausage
1/4 onion (3 net carbs)
1/2 t. paprika
1/2 t. salt
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. Carbquik baking mix (6 net carbs)
1 c. hood calorie countdown dairy beverage (3 net carbs)
2 eggs
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown hamburger, onion, and paprika. In seperate bowl, mix salt, Parmesan cheese, carbquik, hood calorie countdown, and eggs. Transfer meat into greased pie dish. Put shredded cheese on top of meat. Pour batter into pie pan. Bake for 25 minutes.

Just finished this, I recommend adding additional cheese to this.

I've made this recipe with several variations that turned out well. Right now I like to use 1/2 pound of ground beef, 1/2 pound of breakfast sausage crumbled, 12 pound of 0 carb chorizo. Be careful with chorizo some brand have as many as 5 carbs a serving. I like to use a mozzarella/cheddar mix, and about a 1 1/2 cups.

I have been trying to figure out a recipe to replace cresent rolls toped with cream cheese and sausage that we serve as an appetizer during the holidays. By reversing your recipe and baking the crust and then toping with the cream cheese, sausage and onion mixture it tasted just like the original! Thanks for the recipe.

This turned out great. I've never been that much of a fan of the carbquick, but the parmesan cheese tip helped out a lot.

This was good! However, I improvised a bit by adding some garlic powder-- and buttermilk instead of the other milk. I also added more shredded cheese.
