I can tell you it is delicious.

I have always had a thing for cheeseburgers. I miss the bun, I have to admit. With this casserole you really don’t miss it surprisingly enough. There is so much protein packed in it that you won’t be hungry for a very long time. My kids liked it with ketchup.

Cheeseburger casserole is absolutely amazing with low carb tater tots and a low carb protein shake when you are craving junk food – just sayin.

You know, I was thinking the other day – I remember the first time I went to a McDonalds. We were in the back of my aunt an uncle’s big,black car and it must have been around 1963. I can remember sitting in the back, not being able to see over the seats or out the windows, and eating French fries very carefully so as not to mess up my dress.

It was the first time I can remember having fries but I was instantly in love. When I got older my dad, a cheeseburger addict, and I had a standing date for every Saturday at the local lunch counter. We always got fries, a cheeseburger, and a chocolate shake. The burgers were much different then. They were smaller and more plain but somehow they were memorable in flavor. I don’t know how they did it but the burgers today just can’t compare.

  1. I love this recipe. I’ve made it twice. Can stomach mc Donald’s but I’m addicted to in & out.
    It says 2gms carbs in the nutrition box..not right? Also the time to make is off. 5 minutes for prep? It takes at least 10 minutes to chop onions and pickles and cook the meat. It also says 25 minutes to cook but in the directions it says 30-35 minutes.
    I don’t pay much attention to prep time but some people do.
    I substituted dill pickle relish for the chopped pickles once and it worked great.
    Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I made this tonight… it was great!

    Thank you.

    I made a few changes. Instead of chopping onions, I threw in some dried onions while the burger cooked. The fat hydrated the onions, and I used bacon pieces instead of frying some up. I threw in some red pepper as well as black. I used dill relish instead of chopping a pickle, and used cream instead of half and half. Baked in an 8×8 pan… Perfect!

    I will definitely make it again, maybe use chili powder and some diced tomatoes next time.

  3. I read how you mentioned MCDONALD’S fries dont taste the same as they did in 60s, because they had to start frying them in another grease,which was healthier, but I agree.taste bad
