A cheeseburger in keto paradise? Sure. Put your “two all beef patties, special sauce, tomatoes, cheese, pickles…” AND bacon into a keto casserole. Then dig in and enjoy!

4 servings

Ingredients

  • 7 oz. bacon, diced
  • 1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
  • 2 dill pickles, finely chopped
  • 2 (8 oz.) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced (optional)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened tomato sauce

Serving

  • 4 oz. (3 cups) lettuce

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 2-quart 9” (22 cm) round casserole dish.
  2. In a large frying pan, fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Set bacon aside, reserving fat in pan.
  3. Add ground beef to the same pan and increase the heat slightly. Fry while stirring until the ground beef is cooked through.
  4. Add dill pickles and tomatoes to the pan along with minced garlic, salt, pepper, and 2/3 of the cheese.
  5. Add ground beef mixture and bacon to the casserole dish.
  6. Mix eggs, cream, and tomato sauce in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  7. Pour the egg mixture over the ground beef and add the rest of the cheese on top.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the casserole turns golden brown. Serve with lettuce and olive oil.

Tips

Want onions with that? Perhaps a thin slice, raw, served as a garnish? An 1/8″ (3 mm) thick slice of a medium onion adds about 1g net carbs.
