Tip!

This is a perfect recipe for that leftover hamburger you weren’t quite sure what to do with. Multiply the recipe by the number of people and you’ll have dinner for the whole family. Voila!

Pair it with a crisp, crunchy, green salad with fresh herbs and avocado. Or try it with this scrumptious homemade mayonnaise (made without soybean oil and additives).

    I love a lot of these recipes, but they don't have the NI listed, like how many carbs, protein, and fat grams per serving. That would be very helpful.

    Hi Kay!

    If you hover your mouse over the symbol for "Liberal/Moderate/Strict Low Carb" on the pictures then you will get some of that info.

    The amount of displayed carbs is net carbs (Total amount of carbs - fiber)

    I am baking this recipe right now. I felt it would be pretty bland with just hamburger meat so I seasoned the ground beef first with a taco seasoning. I will report back if that was tasty or not.

    Are you supposed to cook the ground beef before you put it in the baking dish? Or is it raw?

    Why this recipe is signified by an orange carb number (= Liberal low carb) though it said "2g carb per serving"?
    I am new to low carb life, and am trying to make my low-carb meal plan... but I am little bit confused how I can take this... should I consider this recipe as "2 gram per serving", or "Moderate carb level", or "Liberal low carb"...???

    Hi!

    It's moderate low carb and I think it's because of it's rather high protein content.

    Personally I think if you would like to eat strict it's a good idea to be below 20 gram carbs and below 100 gram proteins per day. After a while you will learn what that means without counting. :) So concentrate on your total daily intake instead of, if a single meal is moderate or strict.

    Is this recipe easily reheatable? Just curious how long it would last in the fridge.
