I really enjoyed this one. I made it in a long pan and didn’t put cauliflower on one end for Mike and he liked it too. Some of the cauliflower accidentally fell onto his side but rest assured he carefully flicked them back out. haha
This picture isn’t very pretty. Don’t judge the taste by the picture please. 🙂
Bacon Cheeseburger Cauliflower Pie
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs (Krogers brand is lower in carbs than Progresso)
- 1 medium onion- chopped
- 1/2 cup low carb ketchup
- 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cans green beans, drained (I used a quart that I had canned)
- 2 cups cauliflower
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups cheddar cheese
- 5 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In Medium bowl mix ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, ketchup, mustard and salt. Press mixture in the bottom of a 9 X 13 pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Drain grease from pan.
In medium saucepan place cauliflower and add enough water to slightly cover and cook until very soft. Drain water from cauliflower and add butter. Using a hand mixer mash the cauliflower. (If the cauliflower isn’t soft enough it will chop like rice but if you have it cooked enough it will resemble mashed potatoes. Either will be fine for this recipe.)
Place the green beans on top of beef mixture and then place cauliflower on top of that. Top with all but half a cup of the cheese. Return to oven and bake for 15 minutes more. Remove from oven and top with cooked bacon and remaining cheese. Return to oven and make 5 minutes more.
Allow recipe to sit for 10 minutes before serving. This recipe serves 8.
I froze a serving and then took to work for my lunch later in the week and it passes the freezer/reheat test too. 🙂
