When you are just out with starting Keto, or any other low carb diet, the first couple of weeks can make or break your resolve. For those early days, the best thing you can do to help yourself stay on track is to keep yourself fed and as satisfied as possible. Today’s recipe for Keto Cheeseburger Pie will help you stay true to your low carb diet while feeling nourished and like you aren’t missing out on anything! This recipe is also quick, easy, and extremely family-friendly. Whether you follow a low carb lifestyle or not, this Keto Cheeseburger Pie would make a great meal for busy weeknights!
To make this Cheeseburger Pie, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spritz a 9 inch round or 8×8 inch square casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray to prevent sticking.
Next, saute the chopped onion and then add the ground beef and cook through. Once the beef is completely browned, drain the oil. Then spread out the beef mixture evenly in the baking dish.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the seasonings, eggs, and heavy cream. Slowly pour this thick sauce over the beef mixture, and let it settle into the meat.
Lastly, top the Cheeseburger Pie with plenty of shredded cheese.
Slide the casserole dish into the oven and bake it for 30-35 minutes, or until the center is set. Once it’s cooked, allow the casserole to rest about for about 5 minutes before you cut it into slices.
That’s really all there is to it! The only left is to serve it up and customize. Another fun thing about this recipe is that each person can personalize their slice of Cheeseburger Pie with toppings that they’d like on a cheeseburger. You can serve it with options like pickles, ketchup, mustard, extra onions, tomato slices…whatever you and your crew like on your cheeseburgers!
