  • 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…

    St. Patricks Day is just a round the corner and according to my dad that means it is time for Corned Beef and Cabbage.  Normally I will find a local place who is fixing it and get it for him, but this year I decided to get it a try in the Instant Pot.  PS….I LOVED IT!
