Need a simple ground beef casserole to feed your family or friends? They will love this easy low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole.
Don’t you just love the ease of casseroles, especially easy low carb beef recipes? I also love to have the heat of the oven warming the kitchen in the winter.
Casseroles are one of my favorite dishes to make, especially for a cheap meal. I find myself making them regularly. In fact, I’m often known for these easy baked dishes.
I recently created a simple low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole to try out on my family. It was an instant winner, even with my super picky husband and youngest daughter.
My husband is a big fan of bacon and burgers so this keto friendly meal seemed like a perfect fit for him. And, my youngest daughter is a huge cheese lover so that’s why she didn’t fuss about eating it.
So, with the three great flavors of bacon, burger, and cheese, this easy casserole is sure to become a regular on any menu. Unless, of course you’re dairy-free and don’t have a good sub for the cheese.
As I mentioned in the low carb ground meat recipe round up, my family eats a ton of ground venison. Our freezers are always full of it. I don’t even remember when was the last time I actually bought ground beef.
When I refer to ground beef in my recipes, you can bet my dish was made with venison. So, even though is looks like regular burger meat, I made this low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole with deer meat.
It’s the same thing with bulk sausage meat. I always use the venison sausage unless I’m promoting a certain brand of meat. Because it’s wild game, deer meat tends to be better than beef.
It’s been a really mild winter in Connecticut this season so the deer have been living comfortably with plenty of food. It’s the first year our venison supply has actually dwindled down.
We usually give a lot of meat away, but we may not have to this year. It hasn’t been a great year for hunting. I’m taking advantage of that as I can easily see what’s in the freezer and use up the older items.
You can whip up this yummy low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole in no time. It goes especially fast if you already have the bacon cooked.
I like to use the baking bacon method to cook it in the oven until it’s nice and crisp. It results in picture perfect strips and it’s a lot easier than frying in a pan.
There’s a tangy sauce used in the casserole. It’s made with eggs, tomato paste, and cream. The ground burger meat is baked right in with the sauce.
You can either stir the cheese into the meat or the sauce. I ended up stirring the cheese into the sauce. It all gets mixed up in the casserole pan so it doesn’t really make a difference.
After spreading out the meat in the baking pan, the sauce is poured over. I will try stirring the cheese in with the meat next time so it gets more mixed in.
I used freshly grated cheese which was a bit long so it settled on the top of the meat. However, I don’t like using the pre-shredded cheese because it contains a starchy anti-caking ingredient.
I’d recommend grating a block of cheese to use in this low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole. It really does help cut back on the carbs.
And, if you happen to be sensitive to potatoes, like I am, it’s worth staying away from any cheese that adds potato starch. It seems crazy, but all those extra carbs do add up.
The slices are very filling. You can easily feed a crowd with this dish. I ended up with 12 servings from this keto casserole. And, if that’s too much, you can either freeze half or only make a half batch.
I used a regular 9×13-inch baking pan. If you’d like to cut the recipe in half, an 8×8-inch pan will do. When I’m doubling the recipe, I use my large 10×15-inch pan.
Most Low Carbers love their bacon, but feel free to leave it out and add a veggie if you’d like. This basic low carb bacon cheeseburger casserole is very flexible.
I used sharp cheddar cheese in my casserole, but you can change up the cheese too. I love mushrooms and think that would also be a great addition to this versatile casserole dish.
However, I kept the dish rather plain for my family. My husband hates onions and mushrooms so there was no way I was adding those.
I’ve been looking for easy low carb casseroles to bake up in my casserole crock pot. Although I baked this casserole in the oven, I think it would be a great one to do in the crock pot.
I’ll definitely be putting this simple casserole dish on my dinner rotation. With all the ground venison burger we keep stocked up in our freezer, it’s a tasty way for me to bake it up.
Your family is sure to love this basic casserole. Why not give it a try? Need more easy ground meat recipes? Check out the this recipe round-up!
I’m sure you’re hearing about the low-carb, keto or ketogenic diet. It’s all the rage. So you’ll probably hear the premise is to eat cheese, eggs and bacon you want. Really it is high-fat, moderate-protein, low-carb eating plan that could help you lose weight. It has certainly helped me! And all of these are 30 minutes or less! Win-Win!I always suggest checking with your doc before starting any plan.
For, many looking at the keto diet, it may seem like your options are very limited, especially when it comes to keto dinners.
When initially starting, you are focusing so much on the restrictions of what you cannot eat that a lot of people feel restricted with their meals, let alone their dinners.
But if you take the time to research, you’ll see that your options are almost limitless. You just need to make sure you have the proper keto swap ingredients.
One quick mention before we get into these recipes, there are a couple that are not a one dish meal and are just the meat. You would want to add vegetables to round out your meal. However, be sure you are aware of exactly which low carb vegetables are ‘allowed’ in order to stay in ketosis. That’s just something to keep in mind as you go through these recipes.
As you’ll quickly find out, once you peruse these recipes, there is a lot of variety with ketogenic plan. These are also relatively cheap.
This 20-Minute Shrimp and Sausage Skilletis a unique surf and turf kind of paleo meal that’s quick and easy. And it’s loaded with wholesome, nutritious stuff which makes it even better.
If you’re a fan of Chinese food then you know exactly what Mongolian Beef is. However, the restaurant version you’re probably used to has almost infinitely more carbs in it.
Typically with the restaurant version of this meal, you’ll have the sugar loaded sauce on the beef along with either a massive portion of noodles or rice and maybe a small side of vegetables.
While you won’t be able to have this meal with any rice or noodles, you won’t feel deprived with the zoodles.
If you love loaded baked potatoes, imagine how you’ll love this version, and in a casserole.
Just like a loaded baked potato, you’ll have the richness of the butter, sour cream and cheddar cheese with the savory chives and bacon.
This looks fancy enough for company.
If you’ve never had spaghetti squash before, it’s an amazing flavor and melds well with its accompanied ingredients, such as it’s creamy Alfredo Sauce. Yes, it tastes just as good as it looks.
Don’t be surprised if this meal becomes one of your favorites.
If you are a Salisbury Steak lover, then this is a recipe you need to try. This is something that you’ll absolutely love.
A big meaty Salisbury Steak dripping in gravy and mushrooms is something some people may consider a dream.
One of the best parts about this recipe is that, when served over mashed cauliflower, it’s serious comfort food. Make extra as it is great reheated (you can also freeze it).
Yes, this is casserole but the joys of casseroles are that they are typically easy making it a good weeknight dinner. There are so many combinations of foods that you can put together that can be made into a casserole.
This casserole is special because it everyone loves Ht wings and this Buffalo Chicken casserole is certainly reminiscent of that.
I am sure you thought you’d never have tacos again. What’s amazing about these Keto Cheese Shell Taco Cups is that they can act as a full meal or as an appetizer for a party.
The cup themselves are going to be cheese, which is perfect for this keto diet. It may not have the same consistency as a regular tortilla or something similar, but the taste is going to leave you wanting more. Eventually, you’re going to forget how a tortilla actually tastes. Cheese taco cups will be all you know and you won’t regret it.
Anybody that knows me will be the first to tell you that I usually find anything with the word steak a hit in my book.
Best of all the simplicity of this recipe. It takes only 15 minutes. It would take you longer to get ‘fast food’. How nice is that?
What I love most about this recipe, aside from how quick it is and it’s amazing taste is that it’s a one pot meal. So not only fast but less dirty dishes. Win win in my book! Oh, and shrimp. I’m all about shrimp!
Chicken in a chili is a refreshing change from pork or beef. This is similar to a ‘regular’ chili’ but low carb. Few ingredients and pre-shredded chicken and you’re good to go.
Frittatas are an amazingly complete meal depending on your additions and they take just a few minutes to prepare. I like to use leftover vegetables, cheese, and meat, especially bacon. I could eat eggs all day.

Turkey Bacon Ranch Pinwheels are a crowd-pleasing, five-minute prep appetizer. My kids gobbled these up when I made them for the Super Bowl last week. They have a lot of flavor with only a little bit of effort.
When I saw this video floating around Facebook recently I knew I wanted to make my own version. I’m not a big fan of salami or those jarred peppers so I went with a turkey ranch version instead. My trick for recreating ranch flavor is to use garlic, onion, and dill. I really think dill is the quintessential ranch flavor.
Turkey Bacon Ranch Pinwheels are a crowd-pleasing, five-minute prep appetizer. My kids gobbled these up when I made them for the Super Bowl last week. They have a lot of flavor with only a little bit of effort.
Put the cream cheese between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Roll it out until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. Peel off the top piece of plastic wrap. Lay the slices of turkey on top of the cream cheese.
Cover with a new piece of plastic wrap and flip the whole thing over. Peel off the piece of plastic that is now on the top. Sprinkle the spices on top of the cream cheese. Sprinkle with the bacon and cheese.
Roll up the pinwheels so that the turkey is on the outside. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Thinly slice and serve on top of low carb crackers or sliced cucumber.

This Keto Chicken Parmesan Casserole is a super easy dinner recipe that’s bursting with savory, flavorful, cheesy, tomatoey flavor! Your whole family will love it, and you’ll love how simple it is to put together!
This recipe is used with permission from Easy Keto Dinners by Carolyn Ketchum.
By couldn’t wait, I mean it. This cookbook came in the mail just yesterday! That’s how excited I am about it. Carolyn is an incredible low carb influencer who is also the author of The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen, another fantastic resource for anyone following a keto diet.
When I say the dinners in this cookbook are easy, I mean EASY. But they are in no way recipes that are just for beginners. Easy Keto Dinners is full of 50+ crowd pleasing recipes that are made with ingredients you already have in your fridge and pantry.
With all of life’s hustle and bustle, what could be better than healthy, low carb, delicious meals that you can whip right up and serve to your family? Carolyn gets it, and she NAILED it.
The recipe I’m sharing today is a fun, keto spin on one of my favorites from my higher carb days. Chicken Parmesan.
I love casseroles, especially at the end of a long day. There’s something just so satisfying about throwing everything into a dish and popping it into the oven…even more satisfying when the result is delectable AND good for you!
This recipe has such yummy Italian flavors, and even includes one of Carolyn’s bonus recipes for Cheaters Tomato Sauce, low carb goodness you can ONLY find in Easy Keto Dinners.
To make the recipe even quicker, Carolyn suggests using your favorite no-sugar-added marinara in place of the easy Cheater’s Tomato Sauce, so don’t worry if you haven’t ordered your copy yet!
Preheat the oven to 350 F and lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan
Spread the chicken in the greased dish and pour the tomato sauce over it. Sprinkle with the red pepper flakes. Top with the Parmesan and then the mozzarella. Lightly sprinkle the rushed pork rinds and basil over the top.
Bake for 25 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
This recipe can be frozen either before baking or after, and it’s easy to prep a day ahead. Just be sure to wrap it up tightly with foil before putting it in the freezer or fridge.
This casserole with Chicken, Asparagus and Three Cheeses is a delicious and easy low-carb dinner that’s also Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, and you could eat it as a treat for the South Beach Diet too. Use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one.
Chicken and Asparagus with Three Cheeses is a delicious and easy casserole recipe that’s been hanging out in the archives with a photo that probably wouldn’t have enticed anyone to make it, so when I saw asparagus on sale this week for $1.49 a pound, I decided to give this recipe a photo makeover! And wow, was it ever delicious.
Yesterday when I was editing the photos I remembered I had some leftovers in the fridge and I gobbled those up for lunch and started thinking about how soon I could make this again. And this recipe is an easy combination that would be impressive enough to serve for dinner guests.
The only thing slightly tricky about this Chicken and Asparagus with Three Cheeses is not to cook the sauce too long or bake it too long or the sauce will separate. This is an ongoing issue for me with sauces when they aren’t thickened with flour or cornstarch, but even if that happens, this will still be delicious! And for me asparagus going on sale is one of the sure signs that spring is coming, and since Salt Lake had a big snow storm earlier this week, I am really longing for the end of winter. So this is for all the other asparagus fans who are excited to have fresh asparagus season on the horizon!
Trim chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise, season, and brown on both sides; then put the browned chicken pieces into a casserole dish. While the chicken browns, barely blanch asparagus, drain well, blot asparagus dry with paper towels, and put the asparagus pieces over the chicken in the dish.
Use chicken stock to deglaze the pan you cooked the chicken in, scraping off browned bits and simmer until the stock is reduced to 3/4 cup. Then lower heat and whisk the sour cream into the stock. Turn off heat and stir in the goat cheese and Parmesan and whisk until it’s melted into the sauce. Pour sauce over the chicken and asparagus, cover with finely grated sharp cheddar, and bake about 25 minutes. That’s it!
Serve Chicken and Asparagus with Three Cheeses hot, with something like The BEST Easy Califlower Rice on the side to eat with the delicious sauce for a tasty low-carb dinner.
1/4 – 1/2 cup finely grated sharp cheddar (I used white cheddar)
Preheat oven to 375F/190C.
Spray a rectangular casserole dish with non-stick spray or olive oil.
Trim all visible fat and membrane from chicken breasts and cut each one in half lengthwise.
Season chicken with poultry seasoning, salt, and pepper, then heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and brown the chicken until it’s lightly browned on both sides. (The chicken will cook more in the oven so it doesn’t need to be cooked completely through at this point; don’t overcook.)
Put the browned chicken pieces into the casserole dish.
While chicken browns, cut off woody ends of asparagus. (Snap one piece to see how much to cut off, it will break off right where the woody part starts.)
Cut asparagus diagonally into 2 – 3 inch pieces.
Bring a pan of lightly salted water to a gentle boil, and prepare a dish with water and ice cubes.
Put asparagus into the boiling water and cook exactly three minutes, drain, then put asparagus in ice water to stop cooking and drain again.
Let it drain well, then blot the asparagus on both sides with paper towels.
Layer asparagus pieces over the chicken in the casserole dish.
Use chicken stock to deglaze pan that you cooked the chicken in and scrape up all little browned bits.
Let stock simmer over medium heat in the frying pan a few minutes, or until the stock is reduced to 3/4 cup.
Reduce heat to low, whisk sour cream into the stock, and turn off the heat.
Add goat cheese and Parmesan and whisk into sauce until they’re melted.
Pour sauce over chicken and asparagus and sprinkle sharp cheddar over top.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce mixture is barely starting to bubble. (Don’t cook it too long or the sauce will separate.)
Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions: Chicken and Asparagus with Three Cheeses would be great for low-carb or low-glycemic diets. It’s a bit high in fat for the South Beach Diet, but you could use light sour cream and low-fat cheese if you prefer, and I would eat this for an occasional treat for South Beach, even for phase one.

This is a quick and easy baked keto chicken tenders recipe that you can use as your go to low carb breading. The breading sticks to the chicken and forms a solid outer shell, perfect for dipping of covering in buffalo sauce. If you’ve been looking for the perfect healthy chicken tender recipe for your keto diet look no further!
Perfectly Baked Keto Chicken Tenders
We’ve really got this almond flour breading recipe down now. If you want a video tutorial on how to properly execute the breading recipe we have a video of Megha making popcorn chicken. The same techniques and principles apply to these low carb chicken tenders. We’re using the same egg wash and breading mixture. As always, play around with different seasoning combinations to make these tenders align with your tastes. Let’s get down to making the keto chicken tenders!
Fried Chicken vs. Baked Chicken
We’ve tried this low carb breading every which way and we usually opt for baking. We do this for a couple reasons. Cleanup is way easier and it’s easier to track nutrition on baked keto chicken tenders. If you go for the fried chicken it can be a bit of a guessing game on the calorie count. Also, this breading bakes up to be the perfect consistency of a diner chicken tender. No need to add on a bunch of extra calories by frying them. If you’re that eager to stack on some extra calories, load these keto chicken tenders up with blue cheese dressing!
We’ve played around with a buffalo sauce recipe a few different times. We actually made a really good one that we tossed chicken wings in when we catered a birthday party a few months back. If you are truly about that homemade sauce life, I would definitely encourage you to work out a buffalo sauce recipe of your own. For these keto chicken tenders we’re going with a store bought sauce! We’ve tried a few different brands and varieties of store bought buffalo sauces and they are all good. Better yet, just about all of them are low carb and no added sugar. Check the nutrition label to be certain, but every sauce at our local grocery store is 0 added sugar. We do have a phenomenal homemade asian wing sauce recipe that would also go great on these keto chicken tenders, but when you’re in the mood for chicken doused in buffalo sauce nothing else will compare!
Sauce to Order
If you’re not saucing your tenders to order your simply not eating these keto chicken tenders at their fullest of potential. We worked so hard to devise this crispy breading recipe, don’t go wasting the crispiness by saucing the tenders an hour ahead of time. I find the best way to get a complete and total sauce coating is to place a few tenders in a Tupperware container. Pour in a few spoonfuls of sauce. Put the lid on and shake until completely covered.
Not into Buffalo Sauce?
Well we’ve got you covered there too. We’ve created a truly sensational low carb barbecue sauce. I don’t throw this term around lightly, but this is one of my favorite recipes we’ve published to date. It’s better than the sugared up stuff you ate growing up!
The Ketogenic Diet has been gaining popularity for a long time and it’s not hard to see why. “Keto”, as many people call it, refers to eating a high fat, high protein, very low carb diet.
Replacing carbs with fats, puts your body in a metabolic state called Ketosis, which means your body becomes very efficient at using body fat as it’s source of energy. A diet where you can eat bacon, meat, butter, cream and cheese? It sounds too good to be true. You can learn more about this diet here and decide if it’s for you.
Here, we have collected 51 keto dinner recipes that are perfect for helping you lose weight and get in shape! Try out your favourites, and share and save any you would like to try on your social media! Enjoy!

It’s getting to that part of the winter that we’re getting tired of soup and casseroles so we’re trying to find new and delicious recipes to try instead of those heavy meals.
The other night I was making taco’s for my boys for dinner and realized that I had NO Taco shells, Doritos, or tortillas at home to put the fixings in. I know, very poor planning on my part but the outcome was a delicious Taco Lettuce Wrap that my kiddos ate up!
Ingredients you need
1 Pound Ground Beef
1 Package Taco Seasoning
3/4 Cup Water
Step 1 – In a pan, brown the ground beef until browned
Step 2 – Add the Taco Seasoning and water to the ground beef and simmer for five minutes
Step 3 – Using the Lettuce like a boat to make a wrap add a half cup of taco meat and then add your choice of fixings like tomato’s, cheese, sour cream, etc. Enjoy!
These are so easy to make, you could even make the taco meat and keep it warm in the slow cooker until you’re ready for supper.
I think because these have just vegetables, meat and cheese they fall into the category of healthier recipes. Maybe? I’m trying to make a few healthy recipe’s every week to off set all the butter and cream that I use in my recipes, I’m loving that healthy does not have to mean yucky or flavorless food.

Is anyone else ever baffled by how many carbs you could eat in one sitting pre-keto? I shudder to think of how I would go to an Italian restaurant, chow down on some breadsticks, eat an appetizer of cheese sticks coated in breadcrumbs and dipped in a sugary marinara sauce, and then finish it all off with a pasta dish. Insane, right?
Well I’m still searching for the perfect keto breadstick recipe, but in the meantime, this recipe for low carb mozzarella sticks is easy and delicious. It’s one of those things that’s so simple to substitute that I almost don’t understand why anyone makes them the “normal” way to begin with. By swapping out the white flour for coconut flour and the breadcrumbs for grated parmesan, you get a result that’s pretty close to identical but much lower in carbs.
These low carb cheese sticks also have the added benefit of filling the occasional need for keto-friendly convenience foods. I like to make a double batch and store some in the freezer for later use. They can be cooked from frozen, so if I keep some on hand then I’m never more than about ten minutes away from cheesy, melty awesomeness.
You don’t even have to limit yourself to mozzarella; the recipe should work with any string cheese that has similar moisture content. I’ve used it to make fried pepperjack (which you can spot in the picture above) with equally delicious results.

These cheese sticks are breaded in egg, parmesan, and coconut flour before being fried to crispy, low carb perfection. Share this:Share
5one ounce sticks of mozzarella string cheese, halved widthwise
1/2cup+ 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
1teaspoonbaking powder (optional)
1teaspoonItalian seasoning (or 1/2 t. each of dried basil and oregano)
salt and pepper to taste
Whisk egg with salt and pepper in a small bowl. In a separate shallow dish, combine the dry ingredients.
Dip each piece of cheese into the egg, and then roll in the parmesan mixture to coat. Repeat this twice to form a double coating on each cheese stick.
Place cheese sticks into a small rectangular dish or other container, and chill in the freezer for at least 25 minutes.
Heat about half an inch of oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Fry cheese sticks until golden brown, about 60 to 90 seconds per side. Drain excess oil on paper towels.
Serve alone, or with a side of low carb marinara sauce for dipping.
Each 5 stick serving comes out to about 390 kcal, 28g fat, 3g total carbs, 1.3g fiber, 1.7g net carbs, and 35g protein.

How to Make Fat Head Pizza Crust – Watch Video!
Fat Head Pizza Crust – this is going to be your new favorite way to make low carb pizza crust! No more vegetables like cauliflower or broccoli!
Guys, you are going to love this pizza crust. Fat Head Pizza crust is 4 simple ingredients all of which are low carb. They are eggs, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and almond flour. Almond flour is my favorite low carb flour to work with because I like the nutty flavor it has. It’s kind of expensive, but well worth it in my opinion. I wish they had bigger bags of almond flour at the grocery store. All I can find are small ones. The first time I tried Fat Head Pizza crust, I was pretty impressed. It beats any veggie pizza crust out there!
You can make so many different things with this Fat Head Pizza Crust. Pizza rolls, crackers, garlic bread, you name it!
The dough is kind of sticky to work. I like to use parchment paper when rolling the dough out. I’ll put a layer of parchment paper over the dough and then use a rolling pin to spread out the dough. Makes life much easier!
