This is a very tasty low carb casserole. We love it!
I serve this casserole with a small green salad.
It is easily tweaked to suit your family's taste. You can add bacon for a bacon cheese burger taste.
Add some BBQ sauce to make a tasty BBQ Burger.

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3Drain ground beef, place meat in baking dish, stir in green chilies and 1/2 of the shredded cheese.
4Top with remaining amount of shredded cheese.
5Beat eggs, mayonnaise and heavy cream. Add a dash of each, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and salt.
6Pour cream mixture over the meat mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Top will brown and look similar to a hamburger bun.
