Recipe share day….Hamburger Pie

Just hearing the words, “hamburger pie”, brings back such great memories from when I was growing up. Every time I go to make it though my husband doesn’t want it.

It’s nothing gross & nothing that he doesn’t like. It’s a layer of hamburger, then topped with corn, then topped with mashed potatoes & baked together. It’s so easy & delish, I’m not sure why he doesn’t like it. If on the off-chance that he does eat it, I’ll have to separate all of the layers on his plate lol. Guess he just doesn’t like it all cooked together (even though it’s all layered lol).

Here’s how you make hamburger pie:


Hamburger mix:

*1 -2 lbs ground beef (depending on how big/small of a pie you are making)
*1 can of tomato sauce or homemade if you have it
*salt & pepper to taste

Corn portion:

just a can of corn drained or you can use frozen

Potato portion:

*potatoes – it’s hard for me to tell you how much I use b/c I make a whole 5 lb bag of potatoes. I don’t use the entire 5 lbs for this recipe but I like how the potatoes come out so I make a larger amount & save the rest to eat with leftovers or as a side later in the week.
* velveeta cheese (the whole brick of it)or any combo of cheese that you like – save a few pieces to place on top of the potatoes when baking
*salt & pepper to taste
*butter – to your liking


1. place ground beef in pan, add salt & pepper to your liking. Once beef is browned add tomato sauce & cook for 4 -5 min
2. while beef is browning, peel & boil potatoes until they are cooked through
3. when potatoes are done, drain & mash with milk, butter, salt, & pepper
4. add the velveeta cheese (or cheese to your liking) & mix with potatoes until cheese is melted
5. open can of corn & drain liquid. if using frozen defrost before putting pie together

Once all of the ingredients are ready to be added to pie, assemble pie as follows:

1. take ground meat & place in the bottom of a pie dish
2. place the corn on top of the beef
3. place the mashed potatoes on top of the corn
4. place a few pieces of velveeta or your cheese of choice on top of the mashed potatoes
5. bake at 350 degrees until warmed through
6. enjoy….

When I was growing up, this was always made with a pie crust. I don’t make it that way, just don’t like it in this recipe (I didn’t eat the crust when I was a kid either). So if you’d like, go ahead & make this with a pie crust you may like it.

Hope you enjoy this recipe & make it on one of these cold winter days that we seem to be having a lot of her in NE.

Happy eating.
