Ok, let’s talk about how to make the best keto cheeseburger casserole of all time.

I repeat, the best of all time!

The first thing you’ll want to do is all of the prep work for this recipe. It will make your life so much easier if you get this done in the beginning. And it will ensure you make the recipe in under 30 minutes.

PREP WORK

So, here are the prep steps

  1. De-skin and mince 2 cloves of garlic.
  2. Cut off the ends of a medium-sized onion, cut it in half, remove the skin, and then chop it up.
  3. Measure out 2 1/2 cups (280g) shredded cheddar cheese.
  4. Add 1/4 cup (56g) of both mayonnaise and low sugar ketchup to a small dish, and mix until combined.

How simple and easy is that?!

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Set a burner on your stove to medium heat, and add 1 -2 tablespoons of oil to a large skillet. When the oil gets warm add the minced garlic. 

Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the onions, and cook them until they become translucent.

When they do, it’s time to add the ground beef. And for today’s keto cheeseburger casserole recipe you’ll need 2lbs of it.

So, once you’ve added the beef, you’ll want to break it down and work it into the onions and garlic.

Stir the skillet occasionally, and when the beef is cooked through, drain any excess juice using a wire strainer.

Now, return the beef to the skillet, and turn the heat of the burner to low.

Add the sauce we made earlier, along with some crushed black pepper, and about 1/3 of the cheddar cheese.

At this point, you’ll want to use a spatula to constantly mix/work the sauce and cheese into the ground beef. Then once the cheese melts you’ll want to top the beef with the rest of the cheese.

Now, set your oven to broil, and add the skillet to the oven.

Cook until the cheese melts.

Top the keto cheeseburger casserole with fresh chives, some keto ketchup, and enjoy for up to several days.

HOW TO MEAL PREP KETO CHEESEBURGER CASSEROLE

It’s super easy to meal prep this keto cheeseburger casserole recipe.

What I recommend doing is using a food scale to portion out 6 equal-sized servings of the casserole.

To do this, add a large bowl to your food scale, tare it out to 0 grams, and add all of the cheeseburger casserole to the bowl.

Now, divide whatever number appears on the scale by 6.

Whatever number you get is the amount – in grams – that you’ll want to add to each one of your meal prep containers.

So, a big pro-tip is to leave your cheeseburger casserole on the scale and tare it out to 0 again.

Now, remove a little bit of the casserole at a time from the scale until it gives you a negative reading of the grams you figured out from before.

Remember, you’re removing the cheeseburger casserole, so the number should be negative, not positive. 

Zero out the scale again, and repeat this process until you’ve split up the casserole equally between 6 meal prep containers.

By the way, even though this recipe makes 6 servings, I try to eat them all in 4 days. All that means is that somedays I double up servings.

Anyways, enjoy the keto cheeseburger casserole, and happy meal prepping!

Now, strain any excess juices from the beef using a large wire strainer, and transfer it back to the pan.

NOTES

To keep the carbs as low as possible, shred your own cheddar cheese. The prepackaged kind will come with “starches” which will increase the carb count on the cheese.
