How Long Does This Low Carb Ground Beef Casserole Take To Cook

Let's just call this a 30 minute meal! The cheesy, creamy edges begin to bubble up around that time and the cheese will turn a gorgeous golden brown on top. Remove and allow to cool a few minutes before serving. Because there is a cream type sauce in this casserole, it will thicken as it cools. 

What To Serve With This Low Carb Casserole 

  • Crisp green salad 
  • Dinner rolls or Keto Bread (if on a low carb diet) 
  • Other sides of veggies

Can I Use Homemade Cauliflower Rice For This Recipe 

Of course, you don't have to reach for frozen if you prefer making your own. I will use homemade cauliflower rice when I have some on hand or the time to make it, otherwise, frozen works the same.  It tastes great, is easy, and works perfectly in this recipe.

How To Serve This Ground Beef Casserole 

I slice up green onions and sprinkle over the top. I find it adds a nice dimension and color to the casserole. You could also serve it up as is, or add a splash of hot sauce to add some heat factor to this comfort food.  If you really want to add flavor, toss on some jalapeno, tomato or avocado. Those go fantastically with keto ground beef recipes.

How To Store Leftovers

Keep any leftovers you have in the fridge for up to three days. You can use leftovers for meal plans for a quick lunch or dinner in the week. This is a great recipe to consider making for the family.
