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.

How to Make Cheryl's Low Carb Green Chile Burger Caserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown ground beef, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, Knorr beef bouillon.
  3. Drain ground beef, place meat in baking dish, stir in green chilies and 1/2 of the shredded cheese.
  4. Top with remaining amount of shredded cheese.
  5. Beat eggs, mayonnaise and heavy cream. Add a dash of each, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper and salt.
  6. Pour 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.
  7. Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
  8. NOTE: I use my 12 inch cast iron skillet to brown the ground beef, then drain off the fat and put it back into the skillet. So, this is a one skillet meal for me.
