Looking for a delicious versatile low carb recipe your family will enjoy? How does a delicious Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Hamburger Pie sound? It sounds pretty good, don’t it? Well take it from me and the Hubs, it’s super delicious and filling.

I mentioned versatile because this recipe can be adapted to suit everyone’s likes and dislikes. the Hubs doesn’t like cheese, so I made a separate one for him. You can also omit the hamburger and you’ve got yourself a protein-packed breakfast. Mix it up a little by adding some low carb veggies, the options are endless and its low carb.

Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Hamburger Pie

Ingredients:  individual pies (as shown in above images)
2- Eggs
2 tbsp or 1/8 cup – Half & Half (Great Value)
1/3 cup – Bacon (Costco’s Kirkland Best)
1/3 cup – Sausage (Tennessee Pride Breakfast Sausage)
1/2 cup – Ground Beef

Again the above ingredients are for individual pies. If you aren’t cooking for picky eaters then you could double or triple the recipe and use a regular pie dish. But since the Hubs doesn’t like cheese I broke the recipe up for individual pies. 

Low Carb Cheesy Bacon Hamburger Pie

Directions:
Cut the bacon into 1/2″ strips and cook it. Brown the sausage and ground beef. Drain fat and set aside.
(I used a 1/2 lb of bacon, 1/2 package of breakfast sausage, and 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef) any leftovers will be used for lunches or quick snacks later)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In the medium bowl whip together the half & half and eggs.
Add 1/3 cup bacon, 1/3 cup sausage, 1/2 cup of ground beef and mix together.

Add cheese and stir once more. (if you’re making it without cheese go to next step)
Pour contents of the bowl into a baking dish. Set aside and mix together any other pies you’re baking.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 mins. Cooking time depends on how deep your baking dish is.

As you can see from the image above the dishes I baked our pies in weren’t that big. The smaller one with cheese is around 4″x 4″ x 4″. The larger dish is around 6″ x 4″ x 2″. Neither the Hubs or I were able to finish our entire pie and actually, each only ate 1/2. This a very satisfying and filling recipe, that is packed with protein and very low carb.

Depending on the cheese and which sausage you use the carb count will either be higher or lower. I strive to cook each of our meals with little to no carbs. I keep the carb count as low as I can because we drink coffee in the am and the Hubs likes his coffee with french vanilla creamer. The creamer has 6 carbs per tsp. Ugh! I have tried everything under the sun to switch that up, but have failed. Hey, a girl has to pick her battles … right? But I haven’t given up just yet and have a few tricks up my sleeve. I’ll keep you posted if this latest one works.

Carb Count Making it Exactly as I did

Cheese – less than 1 carb per 1oz serving
Eggs – 0 Carbs
Sausage – O carb
Bacon – O carbs
Ground Beef – O carbs
Half & Half – 1 carb per serving

Total Carb Count per pie is a maximum of 2 carbs. I say this because the cheese says less than 1 carb, I dislike the guessing game so I just count it as 1 per serving. So 2 total carbs for the entire dish, but if you only eat half like we did you’d be getting 1 total net carbs.

Again the carb count can vary depending on the following factors:
Cheese Type/Brand
Sausage Brand
If you make it without cheese
If you’ve added other low carb veggies

Overall this is a fairly low carb tasty dish, that can be adapted to suit everyone’s taste buds. As I stated above you can also make this delicious low carb dish for breakfast too. Omit the hamburger, add some ham, toss in a few onions and tomatoes for a delicious breakfast.

Low Carb Cooking Lifestyle Tips:

  • Remember to always read the labels
  • Look for hidden carbs and sugars
  • If you’re buying products with Sugar Alcohol, test how your body processes them before consuming too many. I talk about this sugar alcohol in my Low Carb Lifestyle Guide, email me today if you’re interested in the guide.
  • Set a daily carb count goal, try to stick to it. 10 (I do the 10), 20, 40 or 50.
  • Keep a food journal, and count the carbs per meal.
  • If you feel hungry, then eat.
Final thoughts

Everyone does the low carb lifestyle differently, I mention things that I did or currently do and know they work for me, and the Hubs. I have also coached a couple of my friends when they wanted to start a low carb lifestyle. One friend (a male) weighing 200+ lbs with a high body fat%, get down to 145 lbs. with an extremely lower body fat%. A couple more friends started lost about 10 lbs, but couldn’t be as strict as I am which made their weight loss, fat loss a little slower. I think they eventually couldn’t stay low carb and went back to life before low carbing.

Start out slowly or whatever works for you. Wanting to make a change is only the beginning, making the change is the start of something bigger!
