Pearl chats: “This decadent dish wins over reluctant husbands by the thousands! Anyway you like your cheeseburger can apply to this pie. You could include a layer of finely diced sautéed onions, dill pickles, jalapeños, or even a layer of tomatoes to the basic recipe. Our children love to top this pie with a little mustard and a lot of ketchup. Serve it with a large side salad and you’ve got dinner!” This recipe is found on page 326 of the original Trim Healthy Mama book and page 149 of the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook.

  1. Brown ground meat and drain the fat.
  2. Add onion powder and mineral salt. (Alternatively, use 1 packet onion soup mix instead of onion powder and salt. It makes it taste fantastic, but is not as healthy and has a couple of carbs.)
  3. Place meat mixture in casserole dish and stir in half of the grated cheese.
  4. Place layer of any optional mentioned ingredients over meat and cheese combination, or skip this step for a more basic pie.
  5. In another bowl beat eggs, mayo, heavy cream, mineral salt, and black pepper.
  6. Pour mix over the ingredients already added to the dish and then top with the remaining cheese.
  7. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Serve with either, or both, a side salad and steamed buttery vegetables.
