Easy Paleo Crust Free Hamburger Pie is an easy to prepare, grain free, low carb and crust free meat pie that is savory and full of flavor. This recipe is similar to my other hamburger pie recipes but if crust free and much easier to prepare with less ingredients. So, you can have this one in the oven fairly quickly. My family liked the crust free, easy version as much as the one with the crust. I have been really trying to make easier to prepare, budget friendly recipes that the kids will still love. The recipe is dairy free but if you can have dairy, then add some optional grated cheese to the top of the pie when it comes out of the oven to make it a cheeseburger pie. This pie is nut free as well, but has a nut meal option for people that can’t tolerate flax meal. My picky eaters had a second helping and were sad when it was gone.
