Who else loved Hamburger Helper as a kid?🙋🏼‍♀️

If you’re like me, you grew up with Hamburger Helper as a regular dinner staple that was oh so yummy! While the original is so not keto-friendly, I’ve hacked it and turned it into a low carb meal that is ready in just under 40 minutes and comes together in just one pan.

You’re going to want to add this easy cheesy keto Hamburger Helper to your dinner menu!

This super easy keto dinner recipe will have everyone happy and asking for seconds. Packed with cheesy goodness, this dish can be made on a busy weeknight. I gotta tell ya, the next day leftovers might be even better. 😋

A few tips when making keto Hamburger Helper:

  • Want to sneak in some keto-friendly vegetables in addition to the cauliflower? Go ahead, add all your favorites like broccoli, peppers, and/or mushrooms!
  • Make it even more tasty by adding bacon to the mix! My boys love anything with bacon and it just gives it a little something extra.
  • If you have a busy weeknight ahead, you can make the beef mixture the day before, then add the cheese to the top, and toss it in the oven to heat through and melt the cheese.

My Hip sidekick Jenna tried out this recipe and here’s what she thought:

 Now, this is a delicious and very hearty meal! It’s easy to make like traditional Hamburger Helper and the whole family loved it! I am a huge fan of one-pan meals and this is perfect when you’re running short on time. I made it in my cast iron skillet and it was a home run, I can’t wait to make it again!” – Jenna, Hip2Save recipe tester
