Recipe Story

I love casseroles because they are so convenient and versatile. You can make them ahead of time, freeze them, reheat them, and enjoy them for days. They are also a great way to use up leftover ingredients or whatever you have on hand.

One of my favorite casseroles is this cheesy ground beef casserole.

The result was amazing. It was so creamy, cheesy, and flavorful. My whole family loved it and asked for seconds.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with butter.

Cut the onion and broccoli into small pieces.

Boil or steam the broccoli for 5 minutes, until tender but not mushy. Drain and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onion in butter until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking it up with a spatula. Cooked it through until browned, about 10 minutes in total. Drain the excess fat if needed.

In a small bowl, whisk together the keto Cajun alfredo sauce ingredients until smooth and creamy. Recipe for Keto Cajun Alfredo Sauce with cream cheese and heavy cream here!
