Why we love this recipe

  • Budget-friendly. All of the ingredients are readily available at the grocery store if you don’t already have them in your pantry. Ground beef and shredded cheese are very affordable.
  • Easy to make. Simply pre-cook the meat, layer the ingredients in a baking dish, and bake.
  • Meal prep. This cheeseburger casserole is perfect for making ahead of time, portioning into meals sized containers, and reheating. It stores for four days in the fridge, or you can freeze this cheeseburger bake for three months.
  • Low-carb and keto-friendly: Each 200g serving has only 4g net carbs, 45g of fat, and 25g of protein. Perfect for keto.
  • Versatile. Don’t be afraid to switch up or omit ingredients if you don’t like them. Some people don’t like pickles, so just leave them out.

This Cheeseburger Casserole recipe makes six servings. One serving has 4g net carbs.

Store leftover Cheeseburger Casserole in the fridge for up to 4 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Ingredients and substitutions

Portion sizes are in the recipe card below.

  • Olive oil. We have also successfully used both lard and grass-fed tallow. You can also use a knob of butter.
  • Ground beef. The best ground beef for keto is also the cheapest, which is the highest fat version you can get at the grocery store. Steer clear of lean ground beef.
  • Salt. Iodized salt is best because it has extra health benefits, tastes the same, and helps thyroid function.
  • White pepper. Ground
  • Bacon. Do not use flavored bacon, as many of them have sugar added.
  • Onion.
  • Dill pickles. If you’re one of the 50% that don’t like pickles, you can leave them out.
  • Tomato ketchup. Sugar-free.
  • Yellow mustard. Optional. If you can find a sugar-free version, even better. It makes a minimal impact on macros.
  • Mayonaisse. You must buy whole egg mayonnaise as just about everything else is fake with sugar, and who knows what else is added? We make our own Low Carb Mayonnaise.
  • Worcestershire sauce.
  • Garlic powder. You can chop or crush fresh garlic if you desire.
  • Cheddar cheese. Always use full-fat cheese.
  • Eggs. Large organic, free-range eggs taste the best and are the most humane.
  • Heavy cream.
