Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 2-quart 9” (22 cm) round casserole dish.
  2. In a large frying pan, fry the bacon over medium heat until crispy. Set bacon aside, reserving fat in pan.
  3. Add ground beef to the same pan and increase the heat slightly. Fry while stirring until the ground beef is cooked through. Once the beef is cooked, you can drain some of the fat if you wish.
  4. Add dill pickles and tomatoes to the pan along with minced garlic, salt, pepper, and 2/3 of the cheese.
  5. Add ground beef mixture and bacon to the casserole dish.
  6. Mix eggs, cream, and tomato sauce in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  7. Pour the egg mixture over the ground beef and add the rest of the cheese on top.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the casserole turns golden brown.
  9. Serve with lettuce.

Tip

Want onions with that? Perhaps a thin slice, raw, served as a garnish? An 1/8" (3 mm) thick slice of a medium onion adds about 1g net carbs.

    I followed the comments of draining off the bacon and beef and this turned out amazing. I didnt use butter as i felt it had enough fat. All the flavours worked perfect together! I added a tiny amount of mozzarella to the top after cooking in my containers so that when we reheated them they'd melt and it was perfect

    Awesome! My family, especially my teenager loves this one!

    The first time I made this I found I didn't like dill pickle in a casserole so on the second try I substituted diced green chiles, yum Ortega burger casserole!

    This was amazing. I fixed it for the first time tonight and it was easy and so so good. I cooked the hamburger in the bacon grease and after done drained only half off. Everything else I completed as directed and no complaints at all about the amount of grease. For those who had an issue with the amount of grease ("If you are using a none stick skillet this will always be an issue as the grease will not burn off when cooking on higher temperatures") Iron skillet or stainless steal skillet is the best thing to use in my opinion. I let it rest for 15 minutes before cutting into it and it set just perfect. Whom ever came up with this recipe I would like to say "Thank you for your hard work in helping and inspiring us".

    Tried this and it was really good. I used 25% fat beef mince so had quite a lot of grease but I drained it off as much as I could, knowing there was still plenty of fat content in it. Was absolutely delicious and my husband also really liked it. Will definitely make this again!

    You can leave the lid off the casserole dish if this is not specified.
