Keto Hamburger Helper…Yes Please!!

Who grew up with that little talking white glove dancing around on your kitchen counter. He claimed to make your dinner a breeze by just adding ground beef. I was very fortunate to have parents who cooked on a regular basis but we would turn to the helpful dancing glove from time to time. I have to admit those meals were delightful. Later on in college I practically lived off of boxed dinners and cup of noodles. That is until I started cooking as a profession.

Low Carb Hamburger Skillet Casserole

Nostalgic Recipes are the Best Recipes!!

This recipe takes me back to a simpler time with a one pan meal that takes about 20 minutes. There’s countless recipes and ingredients for hamburger casseroles. I figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and share my ketofied take on one of my childhood favorites.

Hamburger Casserole…One in a Million but Mines the best lol.

As I said before there’s a million recipes for hamburger casseroles so if you don’t like a specific ingredient or cheese just swap it out to your liking. This recipe was partially inspired by a cordon bleu sandwich with mushrooms, ham and Swiss. You could go with a bbq cheddar bacon version as well that would be outstanding. Maybe a Cajun, bacon, bleu cheese, bayou style. The possibilities are only limited by your creativity.

One little addition I like to do is serving the casserole with a selection of condiments on the side, in this case I just kept it simple with some lettuce, tomato, mustard and spicy ketchup. Go ahead and serve any condiments you enjoy on a burger alongside the casserole so everyone can customize their own dinner.
