Cheeseburger Pie & Stuff I Ate

Despite having a rotten cold and sore throat that has lasted for 2 weeks now, I’ve done a fair bit of good eating over the last week.

I finally got round to making a recipe I’ve been wanting to make for an embarrassingly long time. It’s a cheesecake from one of my favourite blogs Seitan is My Motor. I love this blog, I love German food..especially desserts and everything always looks so beautiful…which is partly why I’ve avoided trying this recipe…I wanted to do it proud…and right! Whilst it wasn’t as stunning as the original, I made it look awesome by decorating it with T Rex cookies.


But seriously folks…try this recipe! It uses soya yoghurt instead of tofu/cashews and it works really well. It’s also super simple, I think I had the whole thing mixed and in the oven within 15 minutes.

On the same day I also made this delicious dish


Chesnut Cannelinni Balls with Dijon Mustard Sauce, Rice and Garlicky Fried Cabbage. The balls were similar to my ‘Everything in the Cupboard Meatball’ recipe. So good, it was a great dinner.

I also went back to Ice Shack to try the Dog Bowl Sundae. I had plans to eat it romantically with my partner Jake…but he decided last minute that he didn’t want to share and ordered 3 scoops. Fine. I could do it without him…WHATEVER

So what was in my Dog Bowl Sundae? 5…yes 5 scoops of ice cream. I went for 2 chocolate, 1 vanilla, 1 raspberry and 1 raspberry mango. 3 toppings..I had chocolate sauce, chocolate chips and an oreo. Then, something that caught me by surprise…Because the waffles that are included in the vegetarian option aren’t vegan, I was allowed to pick a slice of cake to go in there. I asked for one of the chocolate topped jam doughnuts…I got given 2!

Oh. My. God. I love this place. And I loved this was awesome! I can also tell you that eating out of a dog bowl makes everything taste sweeter.

And for the finale I made this beauty of a dish…Cheeseburger Pie

Cheeseburger Pie



  • 8 meat free ‘beef’ style burgers (I used vegetarian choice)
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 block vegan cheese (I used Violife Smoky), grated
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 packet of batter mix, prepared with water


  • Heat some oil in a pan and start off by frying the onions. While they’re frying, chop the burgers into bite size pieces.
  • When the onions have turned golden, add the burger pieces and fry for a further 10 minutes until crispy and caramelised.
  • Pour into a pie dish. Top with half the grated cheese and a sprinkling of nutritional yeast.
  • Pour the prepared batter mix over the top, top with the rest of the cheese and pop into the oven at 200C for 30 minutes

How can something so good be so easy?


This was awesome. I was really bad and just had this with a gherkin relish…I recommend adding some kind of real vegetable to your plate.

Next time I’m going to top it off with those cheap crappy crispy onions and then smother it in burger sauce.

Try this if you know what’s good for you!

  1. I’ve just had lunch and feel hungry again after reading this post! Thanks for sharing the cheesecake recipe. I’ve never really attempted vegan cheesecake but I love the sound of this.


  2. Okay, there is too much amazing stuff in the post. I can’t deal! I’m desperate for ice cream now, that sundae looks fantastic. I’m also a mega fan of the Seitan is My Motor blog, everything she makes is so amazing and I love how you decorated the cheesecake.
