My husband and I both enjoyed this dish. I'm Keto but my husband isn't. I made a few changes: I used half -n-half instead of heavy cream (still Keto Friendly) and like others, I cooked the bacon ahead of time. I also baked it about 20 minutes and then added the bacon and cheese on top, rather than inside the casserole. I served it with traditional hamburger toppings on the side. It was lovely and will definitely make again. Read More

I cooked the bacon first as I was worried about all the grease. It's not bad; breakfast for dinner is OK sometimes. Read More

Definitely will make again! I realized halfway through that, although I made "this dish" before, I had gotten the recipe from Buns in the Oven, which called for a few additional ingredients. So I altered this recipe by adding a teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbs of ketchup, 1 1/2 tbs of mustard and about 3 oz of cream cheese from BITO's recipe since my family and I enjoyed it so much. I also used the chopped garlic in a jar equivalent of the garlic cloves and sauteed diced onions in lieu of onion powder. I also cooked my bacon before adding it to avoid extra grease. It came out delicious! I baked @ 375° for 30 minutes (the recipe doesn't list a degree for baking so I got that from the comments section here). Absolutely a favorite dish...one I'll happily make again. It's such a great meal Keto followers won't feel deprived in the least! Read More

Very good with some changes based on other reviews and my preferences. First, it's just me here so I essentially cut recipe in half. I used 3 large cloves of minced garlic and a medium chopped onion, all cooked with the beef. Added a bit of chili powder, ground cayenne pepper and a dash of Worcestershire. I used 2-3 TBS bacon grease to brown beef and drained it thoroughly when done. I also cooked chopped bacon separately until really crisp and drained thoroughly on paper towels. Poured into casserole dish sprayed with PAM, added bacon. Used about 1/4 of an 8 oz brick of Philly Cream Cheese, pinching off small pieces and "poking" into the beef mixture. Used 3 large eggs with cream, added some Monterey Jack to my Cheddar cheese. Poured over per directions, topped with cheese mixture, baked. This is a great recipe - can be modified to suit your individual preferences. May try with half beef/ half breakfast sausage next time. Nothing greasy about mine but I did drain everything really well. This will be one of my "regulars" - good, easy, cheap. What's not to like? :) Read More

I've made this twice. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious!! The second time I cut the ingredients in half and put it in a casserole dish. For some reason it didn't turn out nearly as good. Read More
