Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Servings: 6


  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon tallow, or cooking fat of choice, separated
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 4 whole eggs
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground mustard
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch round pie plate or 8×8-inch baking dish.
  2. Lightly brown the meat in cooking fat over medium-high heat in a heavy-bottomed skillet or cast iron. Transfer to pie plate once cooked.
  3. Add a little more fat to the skillet and brown the onions until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Stir frequently.
  4. While the onions cook, whisk the eggs. Add herbs, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour over the beef so it sinks into the meat. Shake the dish gently if needed.
  6. Arrange the onions in an even layer over the eggs and meat.
  7. Top the whole pie with cheese.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  9. Allow the cheeseburger pie to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.


To make a complete hamburger themed meal, serve on a bed of lettuce with a side of pickles or Pickle Relish and thick slices of fresh tomatoes. Offer mustard and sugar-free ketchup at the table.

  2. I make a similar dish- basically a meatloaf… all same ingredients however I do add a small can of jalapeño salsa (for those who dont mind this flavor and additive) mix well and drop into a greased or parchment lined baking dish… bake till done rest and cut – so delish!

    1. I want to add for those who don’t cook- RESTING meat and dishes is the process to allow it to cool down, we do this becuase the fats while cooking are very hot and become liquid like water… the resting period allows the fats tj cool and become like jelly agai so when u cut the meat or pie etc it does t all run out on the plate leaving the food dry….

  3. How is this carnivore if it has cabbage? Not criticising, just a general comment about carbs being included in carnivore recipes. 🙂

  4. Be open. Have fun. Like Shawn says, “If you get through all your pain and issues and you want to try re-introducing whatever, enjoy and keep a tab on your reactions. This is meant to be a healing way of eating for many ailments that may be food connected. Try and not lose the spirit of the message. Cherish health!

  5. Made this tonight. It was amazing! Will definitely make again with a tad more seasoning May add garlic salt to the ground beef. Got some meal planned for the rest of the week. Thanks!
