- 2 lb ground beef
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided in half)
- 8 slices bacon, chopped
- Cook the bacon. Follow the instructions on How to Bake Bacon in the Oven. Once the bacon is cooked, then cut into small pieces. Set aside.
- Chop the onions, then shred the cheddar cheese. Set them both aside.
- In a large frying pan or dutch oven add the olive oil and turn heat onto medium-high. Add the onions and saute for a minute or two. Add the ground beef and cook for about 5-8 minutes. Add the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Stir together.
- Now add the cream cheese and 1 cup of cheddar cheese. Stir together letting the cream cheese and cheddar melt into the ground beef.
- Add in the chopped bacon and stir until combined.
- Transfer the meat mixture into a casserole dish then top with remaining cheese.
- Place in the oven at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the cheese is bubbling.

Oven-baked Bacon. If you haven’t tried this yet I highly suggest it. The bacon cooks evenly and there is no mess all over your stove.
Make sure to cook the ground beef first, don’t put the casserole together while the meat is raw.
Use freshly grated cheese. It not only tastes better but there may actually be hidden carbs in pre-shredded cheese.
If freezing leftovers, then make sure the casserole is cooled down at room temperature.
