The key to making a tasty keto ground beef casserole is to brown the meat in olive oil. Warm a large skillet over medium-high heat, start browning the meat by breaking/crumbling the beef apart with a spoon to cook evenly.
The meat is cooked when it is not pink anymore.
To avoid a runny casserole, it is important to remove the liquid from the skillet. Then, return the meat into the skillet and cook again with mayonnaise, cream cheese, or sour cream.
We all love our casseroles differently. If you love a thick beef layer to mimic a double cheeseburger, then use a 9-inch x 9-inch baking dish as seen in this post.
For a thinner layer of ground beef, use a 9-inch x 13-inch. Spread the beef mixture evenly over the pan, add pickle slices, and set aside.
Note that this won’t impact the carb per serve because whatever the size of the dish you use, you divide the entire dish into 9 portions of the same size.
Since you spread the ingredients evenly into the baking dish, the net carbs per serve will remain the same.
Prepare the cheeseburger sauce in a separate mixing bowl. Beat the eggs with heavy cream, sugar-free ketchup, mustard, and shredded cheddar. Pour this sauce evenly over the baking dish. The larger the dish is, the thinner the layer of sauce will be.
Bake the casserole with the remaining shredded cheddar on top until melted and broiled.
There are so many options to tune this recipe and create a variety of new keto casseroles.
Of course, you can serve this casserole plain. It is delicious. But what about turning the cheeseburger experience further by serving your casserole on top of lettuce and thin slices of tomatoes.
This will bring out all the cheeseburger flavors, and if you add 50g (1.8 oz) of each ingredient, one serving will contain 5.2 grams of net carbs instead of 3 grams of net carb if served without these keto vegetables.
I love keto breakfast casseroles. It is the quickest and easiest keto breakfast ever. I have plenty of other keto casserole recipes for you to try below, using keto vegetables to add some important nutrients to your plate.
