Creative Cheeseburger Recipes

Cheeseburger pie, cheeseburger casserole and more – try one of these recipes to feed your family.

You don’t need to go through the drive-thru – or to a local restaurant – to indulge your cheeseburger craving. Make one of these cheeseburger recipes at home! You can stick with the standard version – a hamburger patty with melted American cheese on top. Or, get creative using the same ingredients and a few additions. Put the cheese in the middle with the recipe for Juicy Lucy or make mini-versions with cheese ranch sliders. Use the oven to make quick-fix cheeseburger meatloaf or cheeseburger casserole. Then again, you can make burgers into pie with recipes for cheeseburger pot pie and impossibly easy mini cheeseburger pies. Who’s ready for cheeseburgers?

Juicy Lucy

Instead of topping your burger with cheese – add it to the inside! That’s the idea behind this Juicy Lucy burger recipe from The Food Network. Shape ground beef into two small disks and add two slices of American cheese between them. Press together and then grill.

Cheese Ranch Sliders

Mix a dried ranch dressing packet, ranch dressing, breadcrumbs and ground turkey together. Make small-sized burgers and grill outside or in a heavy skillet inside. Use dinner rolls or Hawaiian rolls as the buns for these cheese ranch sliders from Hidden Valley.

Quick-Fix Cheeseburger Meatloaf

No need for buns with this recipe for a quick-fix cheeseburger meatloaf from Kraft. Stir ground beef with crushed saltine crackers and Dijon mustard. Place into a loaf pan and cook for 40 minutes. Top the meatloaf with ketchup and shredded cheddar cheese and cook for five more minutes.

Cheeseburger Casserole

Capture all the flavor of cheeseburgers in this easy-to-serve cheeseburger casserole from Bakerette. Saute diced onions and garlic together and add ground beef. Next, mix with cooked rotini noodles and then pour into a baking dish and top with shredded cheese. Cook for 15 minutes until the cheese is melted.

Cheeseburger Pot Pie

Swap out chicken for this cheeseburger pot pie from Pillsbury. Brown the ground beef and mix with ketchup and, if you want, a few diced pickles. Press one premade crust into the bottom of a pie plate and then add the ground beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and lay another pie crust on top. Bake until the top is golden brown.

Impossibly Easy Mini Cheeseburger Pies

No time to bake a whole pie? Then what about these impossibly easy mini cheeseburger pies from Betty Crocker? Grease the bottom and sides of muffins tins and then add a tablespoon of mixed up Bisquick. Add another tablespoon of cooked and seasoned ground beef. Top with another tablespoon of Bisquick and bake. Bite-sized cheeseburger perfection!
