Your family will have no clue this is Keto!  Throw a green salad alongside and it will be just like eating a bunless burger at a restaurant!  I had barely put this on the plates before my family was scarfing it down and asking for seconds.  Next time I will definitely need to double this recipe!

Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole

  • 1/2 pound thick cut bacon cut into 1/2″ chunks
  • 1/2 small red onion chopped fine
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound 90/10 ground sirloin
  • 2 dill pickles chopped
  • 2 Roma tomatoes chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 TBLS tomato paste
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2+1/2 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Cajun seasoning (if desired)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

Cook the bacon and onions in a high sided dutch oven or over sized skillet.  Drain, put into an 8 x 8 baking dish, and put into a pre-heated 350° F oven. Season the beef with the Cajun seasoning, and brown it with the garlic in the same pan used for the onion & bacon.

Combine the eggs, whipping cream and 1 Cup of the cheese and set aside.

Using a slotted spoon, remove the browned meat from the pan to get as much of the grease/liquid out as possible.  Combine the meat with the tomato paste and then layer the meat mixture on on top of the bacon.  Next add tomatoes and pickles to the top of the meat layer in the pan.  Pour the egg mixture over the top of everything (Do NOT stir).  Top with the remaining cheese.

Bake for 15 – 22 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and browned on top.  Let the casserole set 5 – 10 minutes before cutting.

Mine served 6 very generous portions. Serve with Frank’s Red Hot sauce. You could also make it fancy and top with lettuce and some diced tomato & avocado. This recipe is definitely a keeper.  #ThisGirlLovesToEat
