Imagine all the great fixins' and flavors of your favorite cheeseburger tucked into a flaky crust (from prepared dough) and you've got this delicious main course pie.


box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box
1 1/2
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
large onions, chopped (1 cup)
ounces VELVEETA™ Original Cheese loaf (from 16 oz. box), cubed (about 2 cups)
cup Thousand Island dressing
teaspoons yellow mustard
round dill pickle chips or 8 oblong dill pickle slices
teaspoon sesame seed
Lettuce leaves
plum (Roma) tomatoes, sliced


  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Make pie crusts as directed on box for Two-Crust Pie using 9-inch glass pie plate.
  • 2 In 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef and onions over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain.
  • 3 Stir in cheese, dressing and the mustard. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted. Spoon beef mixture into crust-lined pie plate. Arrange pickle chips over beef mixture.
  • 4 Top with second crust; seal edge and flute. Sprinkle with sesame seed. Cut slits in several places in top crust. Cover crust edge with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
  • 5 Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Top pie with lettuce and tomatoes. Serve with ketchup and mustard if desired.
