Cheeseburger casserole is a quick and easy ground beef casserole that the whole family can enjoy. Kid-approved and scrumptious down to the last drops. Best of all this is a keto cheeseburger casserole recipe to help you stay on track with your Ketogenic diet.
Keto ground beef casseroles are my go-to lately. They get thrown together in minutes and then bake to perfection. Slice and serve, for one savory weeknight meal. Comfort food without the guilt is how I describe this recipe.
Can I Add Bacon To My Casserole
Sure. If you want to give it that bacon cheeseburger casserole twist, go right ahead. Just make sure that you cook and dice the bacon before stirring into the casserole to bake. You don’t want to use raw bacon in the casserole, as it won’t bake up to be a nice texture.
What To Serve With My Low Carb Cheeseburger Casserole
Fresh vegetables, roasted vegetables, or even a cauliflower mash. You can pick and choose any of your favorite sides. This beef casserole is so versatile and will blend well with most recipes.
How Does The Ground Beef Casserole Become Thick
The eggs are a great base for this recipe. I know it might sound strange to use eggs in a beef casserole, but trust me the flavors work well together. Using eggs makes it a keto-friendly recipe. Whereas many other recipes use items like egg noodles, other pasta, and rice to bring the dish together.
What Size Baking Dish Do You Use For This Ground Beef Casserole
You will want to use an 8×8 baking dish or 9 inch round pan for this recipe. This beef recipe will serve around 4-6 servings. Which is great if you are looking for a recipe that is smaller in size.
Can I Double This Cheeseburger Casserole
Yes. Use a 9×13 pan if you plan to double this recipe. Then just ensure that the whole casserole is fully cooked before serving up. I take a toothpick and stick throughout the casserole. I look to ensure the toothpick comes out clean in all areas.
