Nothing beats a big, juicy cheeseburger. And while we get to eat a lot of delicious bunless burgers on a Keto lifestyle, sometimes you just want a little...something extra.
Of course, with our newly discovered love for Keto bagels, we could always use those to add a “bun” to our burgers. But when you don’t want to have to prep two separate meals at once, the trusty casserole is the way to go.
This Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole tastes just as good re-heated as it does straight out of the oven, which is always an added bonus for me. We chose to keep this one pretty simple with bacon and pickles as the only “extras,” but we plan to get a little more creative with the next one by replacing the pickles with some mushrooms and Swiss cheese.
Either way, this is a great comfort dish that is sure to please a crowd of one or many.
