  • 2 2 eggeggs
  • 2 oz. 50 g (100 ml) shredded cheese

Instructions

Instructions are for 1 serving. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Arrange cooked ground-beef mixture in a small baking dish. Then make two holes with a spoon and crack the eggs into them.

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 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.

    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.
  23. Danny
    Can I use ground turkey instead
  24. Steve
    I could eat this for breakfast everyday for the rest of my life and not get tired of it!

    Can you freeze this meal?
  26. John
    Great recipe. I mixed in some chorizo with the beef, and ugh...... amazing.
  27. Candace
    Can you freeze this meal? Would like to make a larger portion and save.

    This may not reheat very well. The meat may get dry and the eggs may get rubbery.

    This is a great recipe and I still use it after giving up on keto (couldn't get it to work). Only problem is I can not get the eggs cooked to my taste; by the time the whites are done, the yolk is overcooked. My brother likes the eggs scrambled and mixed with the sausage, then covered in cheese. Pretty good!

    Okay so I'm a little confused, why does it say the cooked ground beef in step one? I'm very new to cooking and have.. no idea how to prepare this because it seems the recipe calls for already cooked ground beef, but I only have raw ground beef?

    I don't know much about cooking so I'm not sure how to pre-prepare the ground beef.

    Please take a look at the list of ingredients. It says you can use leftovers or prepare it however you like and includes a link to a recipe you can use if you are unsure.

    Absolutely fantastic and filling. Very easy and quick to make. Made cabbage slaw to go with it.

    My variation on this is with smoked mackerel, on a base of shredded savoy cabbage, both precooked (the mackerel comes in a pack readdy cooked).
