Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Prep and assemble the pie up to 24 hours ahead of baking. Stash covered, in the refrigerator and plan to bake it a 5 to 8 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean since it will be chilled.
  • tip 2
    This recipe has been on the Bisquick™ mix box for years, and it is still one of the most-requested Impossibly Easy Pie recipes of all time.
  • tip 3
    Let a straight-forward cheeseburger pie can be the beginning for a diner-inspired dinner: top the pie with crumbled bacon and sliced avocado, fried onions and mushrooms, a California-style shredded lettuce and tomato, dill pickle chips, or pickled red onions! The sky’s the limit.
  • tip 4
    Use a wire whisk to beat up a baking mix batter and make it lump-free—it works like a charm.

More About This Recipe

  • While many time-tested heirloom recipes have come out of the Betty Crocker kitchens over the years, possibly none has proven as popular as The “Impossibly Easy Pie” formulation, which has been a relied-upon recipe since the 1970s. There’s no need to roll out a crust to make this pie. Instead, you just mix all the ingredients together—yes, the ingredients for the filling and the crust. It may seem impossible, but it really does happen in your oven: while it cooks, this cheeseburger pie forms its own crust around the fillings, and the result is a custardy, cheesy one-dish wonder that tastes just like a hearty cheeseburger meal.
