Juicy Bacon Jalapeno Keto Cheeseburger Casserole
Love delicious burgers?
How about creating a mouthwatering casserole with all the delicious flavors and ingredients of bacon cheeseburgers?! Yep, this hearty and comforting meal idea would make your casserole loving grandma proud, and it makes for a perfect low carb meal for your hungry family any day of the week. It does slightly remind me of a breakfast casserole, so I think this could be yummy for breakfast or dinner- you decide!
Grab your burger-related ingredients!
I could eat burgers every day, and this is just a fun way to serve them. Plus, I appreciate that this dish uses fairly common and frugal ingredients, so I feel like it’s budget-friendly, too.
You’ll need the classic ingredients like ground beef, bacon, cheese, and diced onion. I added jalapenos for additional flavor, but just omit if you don’t care for them. You’ll also want to grab any fun burger toppings like pickles, lettuce, or tomatoes for serving.
The process of this casserole is very easy!
You’ll cook the meat, onion, and garlic on the stove, and transfer the mixture to a 2.5-quart casserole dish with cooked bacon. Then you’ll whisk together the cream, eggs, plus some of the cheese and pour it over the meat mixture. This all gets topped with lots of cheddar cheese and gets baked in the oven for about 35 minutes.
This makes a very filling meal with four big servings, however, it would be completely easy to double the recipe for a bigger family and bake in a larger 9×13 casserole dish.
The warmed-up leftovers were just as good, so this is a great meal prep for a quick breakfast or lunch during the week.
Hip Tip: Love my vintage-inspired casserole dish? It’s a 2.5 quart Corningware dish in the nostalgic cornflower pattern we all fondly remember!
