• KETO MEATLOAF – you NEED this in your life

    KETO Meatloaf is the epitome of comfort food in my book.  This dish takes me back to my childhood but with an update making it KETO and kid friendly. Mini in size…BIG in flavor I made this meatloaf in muffin pans not only because it makes it super easy but also because they are just so darn cute!!  Each little meatloaf is a little bigger than a meatball making them a fun size.  You can have a few for dinner and then a few for lunch the next day. I also love the size for kids.  My niece and nephew loved them! OHHHH the glaze! My favorite part of a…

  • KETO Queso Burger

    This KETO Queso Burger is everything you need in your life RIGHT NOW!  This whole burger kinda happened by accident.  I was craving a burger but I also wanted Mexican food, well really just quest dip, so I decided to marry the two into this amazing KETO QUESO BURGER! It all starts with the burger (and then the toppings) For this burger I went with a 80/20 blend of ground chuck.  If you wanted to use a 90/10 blend or 70/30 blend go for it, just make sure to adjust cooking time as needed.  The leaner the meat the faster it will cook.   I used 1 1/2 pounds of…

  • Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole (KETO/Low Carb)

    Who doesn’t love a good casserole.  I know I do.  They are my comfort food and this Bacon Cheeseburger has everything a good casserole should have, and then some. Bacon, please This casserole all starts with bacon.  I used 1/2 lb of bacon and cut the strips into small pieces and then cooked it all in a large skillet.  If you leftover bacon you can use it, but I love how the bacon flavor becomes the base of the casserole when you cook it in the same skillet as the meat. The bacon adds so much flavor and really elevates this casserole to the next level.  My moms hamburger casserole…
