Cheeseburger Casserole : Low Carb

For something a little different how about this deconstructed cheeseburger! It's been re-assembled into a low-carb casserole! It has ground/minced beef, some cheese, onions, pickles, tomatoes and Dijon mustard - with the cauliflower serving as the bun - well sort of! LOL!

Serves Four
12g carbs per serving

1 lb / 450 g cauliflower
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 yellow (white)  onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 lb / 450 g ground/minced beef
2 tablespoons tomato paste
14 oz. / 400 g canned whole tomatoes, drained
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2⁄3 lb / 300 g shredded (grated) cheddar cheese
salt and pepper

2 dill pickles
51⁄3 oz. / 150 g lettuce
4 tablespoons olive oil

Please see cooking instructions at Diet Doctor site here

"Cauliflower is an extremely healthy vegetable that’s a significant source of nutrients. It also contains unique plant compounds that may reduce the risk of several diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Additionally, it’s weight loss friendly and incredibly easy to add to your diet. It’s tasty, easy to prepare and can replace high-carb foods in several recipes."

Sounds good Jan. I love using cauliflower and broccoli as replacements for carbs!

Christine said...

I like this idea! Thanks for the sealegs info yesterday, didn't realize it contains sugar and a whole lot of additives!

I'd much rather have the cauliflower than an actual bun. This actually looks delicious. When I come here, I want to give up my vegetarian ways the recipes look so delicious. This one has my mouth watering.

Looks delicious.

Sounds and looks tasty Jan. My hubby cannot have to much tomato in his meals. It drives his sugar levels up. As you always say check those suger levels and eat what works for you!

Hugs 💮

Will it still be tasty if you skip the oven? I´m always afraid of burning myself...

Lynda said...

Yum, this looks great. I made the bacon burger casserole the other week but I think this looks better.

Iris asked - "Will it still be tasty if you skip the oven? I´m always afraid of burning myself..."

Hello Iris
The original recipe suggestion is to finish cooking in the oven.
However, why not try finishing the cooking on the hob, obviously using a hob-proof casserole type dish. The oven temperature stated is 400F 200C Gas Mark 6 which is a fairly high setting, so depending on your hob you may have to have a trial and error session first...and of course always make sure everything is properly cooked.

Hope this is helpful

All the best Jan
