If you’ve been on the hunt for a low carb cheeseburger casserole, this is the recipe for you! Only 2 net carbs per serving and it’s so filling and delicious!
Okay, friends, I have a good one for you today!
You know how sometimes you just really need a big, fat, juicy bacon cheeseburger? Happens to me daily, if we’re being honest.
Extra cheese on mine, please!
Plus ketchup, mustard, pickles, and a suuuuper thin slice of red onions. 😉
I’m back on the low carb bandwagon again and one of those burger cravings hit. Of course, my bacon cheeseburger salad is always nice, but I’m getting a little sick of salad, to be honest.
I needed a burger.
Maybe even a bacon cheeseburger? Because bacon makes life better, my friends.
Soooo, I decided to whip up one of my new favorite low carb ground beef recipes.
Now, the whole reason I need to be eating low carb recipest is because of casseroles. I’m obsessed with them and I eat them all too often.
So, a low carb version is basically heaven, if you ask me!
It doesn’t taste like diet food AT ALL. I mean, did you read about the bacon and cheese?
This hamburger casserole recipe has been such a hit with you guys, that I created a taco version too! It’s one of the best low carb casseroles!
This low carb cheeseburger casserole is super filling, totally easy, and you’re not going to believe it, but it only has 2 net carbs per serving.
Like woah. I served it with some cauliflower rice. My whole meal was only 5 net carbs and I was stuffed! Love dinners like that!
It would also be good with a side salad, if you’re not totally sick of green leaves yet. 😉
Anyway, this is basically a crustless quiche, except not.
I mean, I personally have never seen a quiche packed with so much meat in my life, but the premise is the same. It’s less egg-y than a quiche though.
I’ve actually had a lot of people ask if this tasted egg-y and I really don’t think it does at all. There are just 4 eggs in the whole casserole, so that’s less than one egg per serving.
The eggs really just serve to hold everything together.
I’ve seen similar versions of this recipe all over the place, but I created this one with ingredients I always have on hand and to have as few carbs as possible while maximizing flavor.
You can save on carbs by omitting the onion and Worcestershire, but I think the flavor they add is totally worth it. Especially considering there are only 2 net carbs per serving!
I really think you guys are going to looooove this recipe! Give it a try and report back!
Give this a try with some diced red onion and pickles on top! Just note that any additional toppings you add will impact the carb count of this recipe.
Oh, and I am sure to use reduced sugar ketchup. Heinz makes a great version and my kids don’t even notice the difference between it and the regular.
You should be able to find it at just about any grocery store!
I’ve also made a buffalo chicken casserole based off of this recipe! It’s just a winning combo.
