Freezer meal instructions
This is a fantastic freezer meal recipe!
I like to buy all the ground beef I'll need for a week or two and cook it all at once. Then I portion it out for my recipes and freeze it in Ziplocs.
- Add the cooled, cooked ground beef, salt, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce to a gallon-sized Ziploc freezer bag.
- Grate the cheese and add it to a quart-size freezer bag.
- Slide the cheese bag down inside the gallon-sized bag with the ground beef mixture in it.
- Seal shut. Write the name of the recipe, the date, and quick instructions on a label and put it on the bag.
- When ready to cook just thaw, pour into the pie pan, and mix up the Bisquick, egg, and milk.
- Bake as directed.
🥫 How to store leftovers
Leftover cheeseburger paradise pie doesn't last long in my family. Everyone always wants more of it!
Cover the pie dish tightly with some plastic wrap, or portion the leftovers into an airtight container. In the fridge, it'll keep for about four days.
You can freeze cooked cheeseburger pie, too. Make sure it's stored tightly in a freezer-safe container, and enjoy it within three months.
I recommend letting frozen leftovers thaw in the fridge overnight. Then, cover it with foil and bake in the oven until it's warmed through again.
💭 Things to know
Expert Tip: Drain excess fat from the beef before mixing it with the other ingredients. This will keep the pie from tasting too greasy.
- Don't forget to use non-stick cooking spray to coat the pie plate before adding the ingredients. You can use butter if you're out of spray.
- Shred the cheese fresh rather than buying it from a bag. This way, it'll melt smoother and taste extra delicious!
- Don't worry about thawing the peppers and onions. They'll soften and cook in the oven.
Absolutely! Kids love cheeseburger pie. The biscuit topping is so tasty, and picky eaters respond well to anything with the word "cheeseburger" in the title!
Stick a knife into the center, and look for wet batter. If the knife comes out clean (or slightly moist from heat) you're good to go! The meat is pre-cooked, so you don't have to worry about that.
Yes ma'am! Brown the beef first. Otherwise, it might not cook in time, and it definitely won't have the right texture.

I've made this so many times - I love stirring in some drained chiles into the biscuit mix for a little spicy change.
