  3. Chop dill pickles and tomatoes and add to the pan along with minced garlic, seasonings and ⅔ of the cheese.

Tip!

Want onions with that? Perhaps a thin slice, raw, served as a garnish? An 1/8" thick slice of a medium onion adds about 1g net carbs.

    I was wondering the same thing!

    That would be a fun experiment. My concern is that it may turn out too soupy, but I have not tried it in the slow cooker.

    Very tasty, but extremely greasy. I should have drained off the bacon grease before adding in the ground beef. I ended up spooning the grease off the top of the casserole after it was done baking.

    Made this the other day. Its good but there is a LOT of grease in the dish...after baking.. because you don't drain it after cooking.
    I think next time, I'll try draining the excess fat (reserve for a "gravy" to pour over it) and use American cheese instead of cheddar. I'm not a big cheddar fan unless its over taco salad. Traditionally cheeseburgers have American cheese on them not cheddar. But I liked the recipe, I liked the chopped pickles in it. Its very satisfying, and filling.

    I used two canned tomatoes but the soupiness came from all the fat from bacon, butter and beef fat in my opinion.

    We had this last night and my husband and I loved it. I did drain half of the bacon fat before putting hamburger meat in, because there was just too much grease. I ended up putting a little more butter, grassed fed, to make up for it. I blended the cream, egg , salt, garlic and cayenne pepper in my blender to make it creamy. It turned out WONDERFULL.

    This turned out amazing. I used grape tomatoes and sliced baby dill pickles. Thats the only “change” that I. made because its what i had on hand. Perfect! THANK YOU

    I made this last month for the first time and we really liked it! I did drain the fat. Anyway, making it again today per hubby's request.

    I cooked the bacon rinds first, then cooked the bacon in the rendered fat... I did not need the extra butter. I also cooked the meat mixture after adding the tomatoes, to reduce the liquid and concentrate the flavours a bit.
    I did cook it ahead, and refrigerate it before putting in the oven, it was wonderful! I will be making this again, and am sure that the other half will be enjoying it as well - he has loved nearly all of the DD recipes I have 'tried out' on him!

    Standard food safety guidelines apply to all of our recipes. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge 3-4 days before the risk of food poisoning begins to rise.
