Keto-Friendly Cheeseburger Casserole

Keto-Friendly Cheeseburger CasseroleKeto-Friendly Cheeseburger Casserole

Now, this Keto-Friendly Cheeseburger Casserole did not blow my dress up BUT I will make it again with some tweaks.  I will post how I made it and how I will change it up in the future.

Note:  I doubled this, so I made a HUGE pan of it because I have a larger than normal family, please adjust according to your family size!  Also, this will freeze well.  Use a layer of aluminum foil and then that press and seal stuff from Walmart.  Then, for poops and giggles, add another layer of aluminum.  Be sure and label and date.

You can take all the wrapping off and let it sit in the fridge to thaw.  Once thawed, cook normally.  You can also take all the wrapping off, add back a layer of aluminum foil and cook it at 250, covered, for several hours.


4 lbs hamburger (next time, I will use ground beef and sausage)

Bacon bits

4 all-beef hotdogs (I had one random pack in the freezer and it needed to be used)



minced garlic

1 package of frozen riced cauliflower

3 c. cheddar

2 T. mustard (use just 1 next time)

1/2 c. mayo (use a 1/4 c. next time)

1/2 c. ketchup (use a 1/4 c. next time)


Saute onion, garlic, meat, and seasoning.  Drain if necessary.  Add uncooked cauliflower rice and stir in.  Next, add mustard, ketchup, and mayo stirring well.  Then, add in about 2 c. cheddar.

Place in greased 13×9 dish.  Top with remaining cheese.

Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes.

If preparing the cauliflower rice from frozen, I suggest removing it from the freezer and leaving it on the counter to soften and defrost while you cook whatever you are planning on serving it.

OVEN COOKING METHOD (my favorite!)

Preheat the oven to 425F. Spread cauliflower rice on one or more baking sheets (depending on how much you have) into a single layer. Don’t make yourself crazy about the single-layer thing. You don’t want to crowd the pan, or it will steam and remain moist. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping the “rice” at least 1x. Remove, serve and enjoy!


  1. Heat a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add cauliflower rice.
  2. I like to “dry fry” it to remove as much moisture as possible. Make sure to season with salt, pepper, and another complimentary spice if possible. Enjoy!
