I recently created a simple low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole to try out on my family. It was an instant winner, even with my super picky husband and youngest daughter.
My husband is a big fan of bacon and burgers so this keto friendly meal seemed like a perfect fit for him. And, my youngest daughter is a huge cheese lover so that’s why she didn’t fuss about eating it.
So, with the three great flavors of bacon, burger, and cheese, this easy casserole is sure to become a regular on any menu. Unless, of course you’re dairy-free and don’t have a good sub for the cheese.
2 pounds ground beef
2 cloves large garlic
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 pound bacon cooked and chopped
8 eggs see note
1 can tomato paste 6 ounces
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
12 ounces grated cheddar cheese divided
Brown ground beef with garlic and onion powder.
Drain excess grease, then spread beef on bottom of 9×13-inch casserole pan.
Stir bacon pieces into cooked beef.
In medium bowl, whisk together eggs, tomato paste, heavy cream, salt, and pepper until well combined.
Stir 8 ounces grated cheese into egg mixture.
Pour egg mixture over beef and bacon.
Top with remaining 4 ounces of grated cheese.
Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
