Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Pies – Gluten Free

Posted by on Tuesday, August 28th, 2012


This recipe is a slight modification of Texas Recipe’s Mini Cheeseburger Pies.  I whipped up a gluten free version and of course I had to add bacon for my family.  These little pies were incredible and stand alone as a hearty appetizer for football season, camping, or even breakfast.  E A S Y!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 12 count muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.

In a medium bowl whisk the following together to form a batter:

  • 1/2 cup Bob’s Gluten Free Baking Mix + 1/2 teaspoon baking powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • (or use 1/2 cup Bisquick Baking Mix instead of Bob’s and omit the baking powder and salt)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs

In a large skillet cook the following over medium heat until beef is done and drain excess fat:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 medium onion – chopped

Allow cooked beef mixture to cool slightly and add

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6-8 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon

Spoon 1 Tablespoon of the batter mixture into greased muffin cups.  Then add 1/4 cup of the meat/cheese mixture to each muffin cup.  Top with another 1 Tablespoon of the batter mixture.  The second time I made these placed some more grated cheddar on top of the batter mixture.  But hey we love cheese!  Bake for 30 minutes OR until a tookpick inserted in center is clean when removed.

Top with your favorite burger toppings:

  • Squeeze ketchup
  • Squeeze mustard
  • Squeeze mayo
  • Chopped lettuce
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped pickles

Recipe makes 12 mini pies.  I would definitely double this recipe for a party.
