Why You'll Love It


Ground beef- Any fat percentage of ground beef will work for this recipe, so no need to run to the grocery store to buy anything special.  Onion- This gives a delicious flavor and hint of sweetness to the casserole that you'll love. Garlic Tomato sauce- This is lower in sugar than traditional ketchup, but gives a lot of the same flavor notes. Mustard- Provides some earthiness while giving that classic mustard flavor that you love on a cheeseburger. Worcestershire sauce- Give a subtle hint of umami. Salt Black pepper Cream cheese- Provides additional fat and creaminess. Cheddar cheese- I prefer to purchase the block of shredded cheese and grate it myself to prevent any hidden carbs from potato starch from sneaking into my diet.


Preheat the oven. Turn the temperature of your oven to 375F so it is ready to start melting those cheeses as soon as you assemble the casserole.

Step 1


Cook the ground beef. In a large skillet, saute the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned. Drain any excess fat.

Step 2


Add in the aromatics. Pour in the chopped onion and minced garlic and cook until the vegetables are soft (about 5 minutes).

Step 3


Stir in the flavor. Add in the tomato sauce, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper, and mix until combined.

Step 4


Make it cheesy. Mix the softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese into the ground beef.

Step 5


Prep your pan. Pour the beef and cheese mixture into an 8x8 inch casserole dish.

Step 6


Bake until bubbly. Place the casserole dish in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Step 7


Eat up. Serve hot and enjoy!
