How to Make Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet
These steps are so quick and pretty effortless! If you can cook bacon and ground beef, then this meal will pretty much take care of the rest. Let’s get started:
Step 1. Start by cooking the bacon in a large skillet. Use medium heat, and once cooked, then set aside.
Step 2. You’ll need to drain most of the bacon grease from the pan. Then mix in the ground beef and onion. Continue to cook until the onions have started to tenderize, and the ground beef is browned.
Step 3. Drain and excess grease from the skillet if there is a lot. A little bit is okay!
Step 4. Pour in the Dijon mustard, sugar-free ketchup, garlic, onion powder, cream cheese, broth and salt, and pepper to taste to the skillet. Stir well and make sure everything is combined well. Continue cooking until the cream cheese has melted. Once melted, reduce the heat to medium-low.
Step 5. Add the bacon crumbles on top of the meat mixture.
Step 6. Add the cheddar cheese on top of the bacon. Then add the lid back to the skillet and cook a few minutes until the cheese is melted.
Step 7. Sprinkle the top with freshly chopped parsley for garnish if desired.
