Vegetarian (Lacto-Ovo) Cheeseburger Pie

This is the lacto-ovo vegetarian rendition of the popular brand recipe by Bisquick! If you prefer to use soy-based cheese, you can use that instead of the reduced-fat sharp cheese suggested.


  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups Morningstar Farms Meat Starters (or similar vegetarian soy substitute for ground beef), partially thawed
  • 3/4 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper or ground white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups 1% lowfat milk or fat free half and half
  • 3/4 cups Bisquick reduced-fat baking mix
  • 1 large egg, higher omega-3 if available
  • 1/2 cup egg substitute
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, grated


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate with canola cooking spray.
  2. In medium bowl, toss together the meat starters, green onion, pepper, and oregano and spread mixture in the prepared pie plate.
  3. In large mixing bowl, beat the milk or fat free half and half, reduced-fat Bisquick, egg, and egg substitute with mixer on high speed until smooth (about 1 minute). Pour batter over the Meat Starters mixture and bake for 25 minutes.
  4. Top the pie with tomato slices and sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top and bake about 5 minutes more (knife inserted in the center should come out reasonably clean.)
