Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 lb ground beef 93% lean ground beef
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups broccoli
 cut into bite sized florets
  • 2 cups mushrooms chopped
  • 4 slices bacon cooked
  • 6 oz cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Ensure your oven rack is positioned in the middle for even cooking.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the ground beef, breaking it apart with a spoon, until no longer pink. Drain any excess grease. Stir in the salt, paprika, and onion powder, mixing well. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a separate pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chopped mushrooms and cook for 5-6 minutes until they're soft and their moisture has evaporated. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Combine the ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and heavy cream together until well combined. Add the cooked ground beef, cooled mushrooms, broccoli florets, and half of the shredded cheddar cheese. Stir gently until all ingredients are evenly distributed.
  • Prepare the baking dish: Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with butter or non-stick spray. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top, and crumble the cooked bacon evenly across.
  • Bake: Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the casserole is set and the top is golden brown. To ensure it’s fully cooked, insert a knife in the center; it should come out clean.
  • Rest before serving: After baking, let the casserole rest for 5 minutes. This allows it to firm up, making it easier to cut and serve.
  • Serve: Cut into squares and serve warm. Enjoy!

  1. Hey there,

    I absolutely love this meal! I make it every week, but I have a question: What kind of ground beef are you using? I'm tracking all my macros and I use the nutrition info you provide, but I want to make sure it's accurate and that I'm getting the right ground beef and not something too lean/fatty.

    Thanks!
