spoonful of hamburger broccoli casserole

Easy keto casseroles make weeknight meals a family-friendly feast!

This Hamburger Broccoli Casserole is incredibly easy to make on a busy weeknight. Casseroles are great when you’re short on time and budget. With simple ingredients you may already have on hand, this one-skillet meal comes together in under 30 minutes!

Don’t be fooled by its simplicity.

From the first bite, you can taste the rich creamy sauce with the tender broccoli—it just oozes comfort food vibes.

HIP TIPS:

  • Fill free to switch out the broccoli with your favorite veggie. This casserole is a staple in my household and I love switching it up based on what I have on hand. You could even add some jalepeños for spice!
  • Chopping vegetables is a breeze with the Pro Chopper—it’s such a time saver!
  • Make this ahead of time by using a non-stick skillet to sauté the beef and assemble the ingredients in a 9×13 foil pan. Cover and pop it in the freezer until you’re ready to bake.
  • Want to make it even heartier? While the casserole is wonderful on its own, you can serve over mashed cauliflower for a filling meal or as a way to re-purpose for leftovers!

  1. Katie

    I made this last night and it is delicious!
    The only thing I may do differently next time would be to cook the broccoli a bit before adding it, so that it is a bit softer.
    Other than that this is a 10/10!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Yay! SO glad you enjoyed it, Katie! Thanks a ton for the feedback!

  2. Priya Dogra

    Looks so yummy! I am a big fan of broccoli. I typically add it everything I eat. Lol…Not always, yeah but most of the times. Thanks for the recipe Collin. In India we are not good with making casseroles, I will not do any experiment and just copy your each move. I will definitely make it this weekend.

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      You’re very welcome, Priya! Hope you enjoy it!

  3. cindywaltonminor

    I steamed broccoli first and did half hamburger half sausage. Delicious!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      YUM! Happy to hear how good it turned out! Thanks for sharing with us!

  4. Sue

    Thanks for this recipe. We really enjoyed it, however, the cheeses already have lots of salt and I won’t add the teaspoon of salt the recipe called for.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You are welcome, Sue! Glad you enjoyed it!

  5. Mary Weinberger Hurtt

    I followed the recipe after I added some premade sliced buttered potatoes with a little parsley& garlic as a bottom layer of the casserole after that the recipe was followed to a tee. It was delicious & will be made again.

  6. Lisa

    That looks delicious!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Thank you Lisa! Let us know if you make it! We would love to hear your feedback ❤

  7. Melody

    I’m so happy I made this casserole. It is delicious. I figured I’d like it and I did. I made twice the recipe to freeze one for later. Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Melody! So glad you loved it. Thanks for coming back and letting us know❤

  8. Tasha

    Absolutely delicious!! We found a new keto favorite for sure. I’ve made it multiple times and I love it more and more each time. Thank you!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      That’s awesome that you keep making this and continue to love it more, Tasha! It’s nice to have a fave!

  9. Walt

    Can you cook it in something other than a cast iron pan?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes! You would just saute the beef in a non stick skillet and then assemble in a casserole dish.

      Here is the suggestion for making it ahead of time – “Make this ahead of time by using a non-stick skillet to sauté the beef and assemble the ingredients in a 9×13 foil pan. Cover and pop it in the freezer until you’re ready to bake.”

      Hope this helps!

  10. Crystal

    Bf and I LOVED it! I didn’t have whipping cream so I substituted sour cream. No mozzarella so I used a mix shredded cheese I had on hand. Used fresh broccoli instead of frozen and cooked it till almost done before adding it to meat mixture. Tomorrow I’ll halve and gut a green bell pepper, stuff it with this and pass it off to Punkin as a whole new dinner! Win win!! 😏🙌

    • Angie (Hip2Keto Sidekick)

      Hi Crystal! I love your creative thinking. So glad that you both enjoyed this recipe❤ Also great ideas on the substitutions. We are all about using what’s on hand! Thank you for you’re sweet feedback.

  11. Lisa

    Loved it!!! I did 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb ground pork and everything else same. Family asked me to make it again in same week 🙂

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Woohoo! SO awesome! Happy to hear it was a hit! 🙌
