Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup finely chopped spinach
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup baking mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Water
  • Additional shredded cheddar for garnish
  • Add ground beef and onion to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function.
  • Brown the meat until no pink remains. Drain and discard liquids.
  • Spread beef in the bottom of an IP-friendly casserole dish, sprinkle with salt, then layer spinach (if using) and shredded cheese.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together baking mix, milk and eggs to form a thin batter. Pour evenly over the meat and cheese. Cover loosely with foil--do not seal.
  • Rinse out the pot, then pour in one cup of water and insert the steam rack. Carefully lower the casserole on to the steam rack.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  • Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 20 minutes.
  • When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  • (Optional) Sprinkle additional shredded cheddar and set under the broiler for 3 - 5 minutes until cheese is bubbly.
  • Allow the casserole to set up for 5 - 10 minutes for easier serving.
