Description

Let me tell you about this Keto Ground Beef Casserole. It tastes like bacon cheeseburger heaven – seasoned to perfection with minimal effort, plus cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and pickles – you won’t miss the carbs in this easy keto dinner recipe with 3.6 net carbs per serving. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 Ounces Cream Cheese 
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 Cup heavy cream 
  • 1 Cup diced onion
  • 4 Garlic Cloves (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons horseradish mustard (or yellow)  
  • 2 teaspoons Lea & Perrins 
  • 4 cups cheddar cheese 
  • 6 slices bacon – crumbled
  • Dill pickles 
  • Shredded lettuce (if you have it) 
  • Chopped or sliced tomatoes (if you have it) 
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 

Combine the eggs, 2 cups of cheese, heavy cream, and mustard in a medium bowl and set it aside – you’re going to use this after you have cooked the ground beef. And it is going to rock your world so wait for it.

Fry 6 pieces of bacon or microwave it – crumble it and set it aside. 

Brown the ground beef in a skillet – once you’ve got it browning, add the diced onions, garlic, lea & Perrins, salt & pepper.

Once you’ve got it all browned – drain as much fat as you feel comfortable with giving up – the fat does add flavor, but if you weigh that against the possible health implications, it doesn’t add up logically to keep it.

Final skillet step – add the cream cheese. 

Now grab a casserole dish – grease it – and throw the ground beef mixture in it.

Then add the eggs & cream.

Then add the bacon

Then add the other 2 cups of cheese. 

Then add the pickles. 

And then bake it for 20 minutes. 

Notes

Options: 

Serve over shredded lettuce with diced or sliced tomatoes 

Serve it with nothing – it’s fabulous enough to carry dinner all by itself 

For My Friends on Weight Watchers:

If you swap the full fat cream and cheddar cheese with reduced fat & use Turkey bacon – you’re looking at 13 WW SmartPoints per serving
