Paleo Cheeseburger Pie, (with our without Vegan Cheese)

Gluten Free Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

You can omit cheese to keep it Paleo, but we use Vegan cheese for a weekend meal. 

Serves: 6

Preparation Time:15 min

Cooking Time:30-35 min

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey or beef
  • 1 (1/2 cup) medium onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic minced
  • pinch of pepper
  • 1 cup shredded vegan Colby Jack or Monterey Jack (or 1/2 cup salsa with excess liquid drained if you do not want to use cheese)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 of baking powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 3 eggs
  • Optional, frozen chopped green beans or spinach, thawed and drained

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 9-inch glass pie plate with sunflower spray or lightly coat with coconut oil.
  2. In 10-inch greased skillet, cook meat, garlic and onion  over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until meat  is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in pepper. Optional- if using  additional veggies, add now)Spread in pie plate; sprinkle with cheese or salsa.
  3. In medium bowl, stir flour, baking powder, milk, and eggs with whisk or fork until blended. Pour into pie plate.  I actually pour about half of it in and stir it up really well to help hold it together and then spread the rest on the top.   
  4. Bake 30 minutes or until inserted in center comes out clean.  Check at 30 minutes and most likely you will need to cook an additional 5 minutes.

Optional- great with homemade or organic salsa or  hot sauce
