We Hope You’re Hungry; You’ll Love this Keto Crock-Pot Cheeseburger Casserole Recipe.
There are days when you just want to reward yourself. Or maybe you want to treat your family or your couple to a really satisfying meal. If that’s the case, then today’s cheeseburger casserole is what you’re looking for.
Food is and has always been the most heartfelt way of showing how much you care about people, and the loudest and heartiest the food, the more passion you’re delivering.
Just the words cheeseburger casserole are enough to get your tummy growling, and your belly would be right; this is quite a meal.
Let me just say this recipe is well-rounded and delicious, regardless of your diet. Yet, I should mention this is a low-carb meal, making it super compatible with the keto diet. Let’s see what we’ll be using today.
What you’ll Need ?
The key ingredient in our Cheeseburger casserole is ground beef, so you want to get this one right. You can have different preferences here, from going 100% lean meat to adding a bit more fat. I like to use 80% lean muscle ground with 20% fat.
Once you have your ground beef selected, let’s talk about the cheese. This is a cheesy dish, and despite this recipe being called a cheeseburger casserole, I recommend you stay away from American cheese and look for a bolder Cheddar.
Finally, the other vital ingredients are definitely the veggies. I already had Bell peppers in my pantry so I threw them in too which turned out to be great. Served together with some crunchy, fresh lettuce and tomatoes this dish is an entire meal. Don’t stop there, by all means add your favorite veggies. Did someone say mushrooms?
When to cook a cheeseburger casserole?
Let me tell you something, I’ve made this recipe several times, and I’ve never ended with leftovers. The dish is so good everyone has doubles.
It comes without saying this one is a party pleaser. The larger the crowd, the better. Just consider the amount of casserole you’ll have to cook. You might have to work on batches if you’re having the entire gang coming in for dinner.
Birthdays are particularly suitable for a good cheeseburger bake. It’s also a nice, heartwarming dish to serve on rainy days, especially if the weather ruined your plans of having a backyard grilling party.
What to do with leftover ?
As I said, I have little experience with leftovers for this one, but in the rare case you DO end up with some, just store them in the fridge protected with film. I’m sure these leftovers are the perfect mid-night crave-quenchers!
