It’s a new year which means many of you may have vowed you’re going to eat “healthier.” You know what I mean. . . no carbs, no sugar, lots of veggies, more exercise, etc. So if you’re one of those who have sworn off carbs and/or sweets, then I got your back today.
I really, really wanted to post a new cookie recipe today, but I decided to start the new year off with something a little more on the healthy side of things. So instead of cookies, you get Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole today. Don’t worry though, the cookie post will be up sooner than later.
The holidays are over and if many of you overindulged like I did, this casserole is going to hit the spot. It’s absolutely delicious and simple to make. It reminds me of a crustless quiche. It’s loaded with ground beef, bacon, cheese, eggs and sour cream. Plus it’s packed with protein which is an added bonus. My boys love this!
I had to laugh though because the other night when we ate this, I served homemade flatbread with it because I had some dough in the fridge I’d made the day before that I needed to use up. So we ate low carb casserole, a green salad and flatbread (with butter and honey slathered on it) . . . hey, I didn’t say I vowed to give up carbs!You will not miss the carbs with this one my friends, I promise. One more thing, if you want to make this even more low carb, you could use almond milk and low sugar ketchup. This is a great meal for those nights when you need something really quick and delicious.
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon onion powder

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Lightly spray an 8x8-inch or 11x7-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
In a medium skillet, add ground beef and salt. Cook over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain fat and remove skillet from heat. Stir in ketchup, mustard, onion powder and ranch mix.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and sour cream. Pour on top of beef mixture.
Bake, uncovered, for 30 to 35 minutes or until center is set.
I one and a halved this recipe and cooked it in a deep casserole dish I have that's slightly bigger than a 9x9 pan. You could easily double it and bake it in a 9x13 pan.
The original recipe calls for 2 tablespoons of mustard, but because a couple of my boys detest the stuff, I cut it back to 1 tablespoon so it wouldn't be super detectable. If you're a fan of mustard, go ahead and add the full 2 tablespoons or adjust it according to your liking.
