- 1.5 pounds ground beef
- 1 tablespoon tallow, or cooking fat of choice, separated
- 1 medium onion diced
- 4 whole eggs
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon ground mustard

- Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch round pie plate or 8×8-inch baking dish.

- Add a little more fat to the skillet and brown the onions until translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Stir frequently.
- While the onions cook, whisk the eggs. Add herbs, salt and pepper.
- Pour over the beef so it sinks into the meat. Shake the dish gently if needed.
- Arrange the onions in an even layer over the eggs and meat.

- Bake for 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Allow the cheeseburger pie to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
