Dinner ideas can be tough to generate sometimes.  I’m tired and flat out OUT of recipe ideas some nights. Does that ever happen to you?

Fortunately, I like hamburger skillet dinners. Because they are easy and usually pretty good. This one is also fun and different. And STILL easy.

I went with Crazy Horse ghost’s hamburger pie with pie crust recipe linked below. I love the name of that blog. And it fit my mood down to the ground. After a long day…yeah. Crazy Horse ghost sounds like where I need to be.

How to Make Hamburger Pie:

Cheesy hamburger pie probably will take a good half hour to prepare. You have to make the crust (Unless you use pre-made) and the filling. Then put it together. Baking time is extra.

But I made this on the fly with a homemade pie crust. After a wretchedly tough day with half my brain tied behind my back.

You will have no trouble. Its very easy and tasty. Read the directions first and then go for it.

Cheesy Hamburger Pie is another winner one skillet dinner.  It’s easy to do even with the homemade crust. In one skillet. Go For it.

One Dish Skillet Dinner Walkthrough:

Here is a quick visual guide with some process pics. It’s really simple. Especially if you have a pie crust handy.

The Listed Steps:

  1. Brown the hamburger, onion, garlic and bacon on medium in a 12 inch ovenproof skillet until hamburger and bacon are done.
  2. Remove the cooked filling and drain it on several paper towels on a cutting board.
  3. Make your pie crust right in the 12 inch ovenproof skillet. (Or use a healthy store bought pie crust)
  4. Wipe the skillet out but leave some grease from the filling so the crust won’t stick after baking.
  5. Pour the flour, melted coconut oil and water (amounts found in my single pie crust recipe) into the greased ovenproof skillet.
  6. Mix with a fork until it forms a dough and pulls away from the skillet sides and bottoms.
  7. Press the dough into the skillet.
  8. Pour the filling back into the skillet, break the eggs straight over the filling and add the spices.
  9. Mix them all up with a fork (be careful not to mess up your crust). Top with grated cheese and chopped pepper
  10. Bake 45 minutes or until bubbly and browned.
