Did you grow up with Impossible Cheeseburger Pie, or as some call it, Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie.  No matter the name, this mid-century casserole pie was a favorite of Sarah from 2GeeksWhoEat.com and in this video she shares some memories of it while I show you how to make it from scratch.

How to Make Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger pie is really just three major components.  The first is the meat and onion filling. I added a little extra flavor to it with Worcestershire and Lawry’s salt.  Then comes the biscuit baking mix, which you can use Bisquick, but I made my own with flour, baking powder and butter.  Then, top it all off with shredded cheese and bake.
