I am approaching 2 months into my latest low carb weight loss cycle.  A couple of nights ago I dreamed of eating a big fat cheeseburger...with the bread!

I knew I could not do that, so I searched the internet, took inventory of the fridge/freezer, I made a hamburger casserole to put that dream behind me.  There are so many low carb casserole recipes available its a good thing.

The link is that I used is provided below, but I did do a few hacks for pleasure and ingredient availability.  I added 1/2 a diced onion and sauteed it first, before browning meat...I had no heavy cream or plain sour cream, so I used some sour cream and French onion dip and a bit more-than the 3 oz of cream cheese called for...and I added a can of mushrooms.  The recipe was not clear on the size of the two cans of green beans-I used two of those small cans and it seemed plenty.  I cooked it until the cheese topping had a fair amount of brown high spots.  This is an easy recipe!

So with the added carbs of the onion, I offset that by eating a bit less.  brad

Eggplant lasagna can be good. Not a casserole per se, but close.

We occasionally do a "lasagna" with thinly-sliced zucchini.  What I've noticed with both eggplant and zucchini is that it helps tremendously to nuke them or otherwise pre-cook them a bit first to get some of the water out.  Otherwise, they release a lot of water into the finished dish and it's all runny and soupy.

Very nice. If I couldn't have bread, I would probably eat my hamburger in a taco shell.

I made this Lime Shrimp, Cucumber and Bean Salad last night.  We thought it was very good.  I made it after learning the Keto friendly hack of substituting in low carb soy beans for other much higher carb beans-like pinto, navy, etc.  It is also very alterable into a Mexican style dish.  Brad

Easier to read:

Lime Shrimp, Cucumber and Bean Salad, adapted by: b. rine (Serves 4 or so)
{This colorful recipe was adapted and modified for “Keto friendly” and taste preferences, from avericooks.com. This recipe can be added to and/or altered as desired.}

Ingredients:
1 lb Shrimp, raw, medium-large, tail-off, shelled, de-veined,
12 oz Soy beans/edamame beans, thawed & chilled,
or a can of soy beans drained, *difficult to find
½ or so Cucumber, chopped to bite size
1 handful Cherry tomatoes, halved
1 lg Avocado, chopped to bite size
½+ C Parsley, fine chopped, or cilantro
1-2 Green Onions, small, thin-sliced well up into the green
1 Yellow bell pepper, stem/seeds/veins removed, chopped to bite size
2-3 cloves Garlic, slightly smashed
3 T Olive Oil
1/3+ C Lime juice, fresh squeezed
*1-2 t Stevia (I do not use)
To taste Salt & Pepper

Instructions:
1. Micro-wave or heat through beans if frozen, then bath in cold water, drain & chill.
2. In a large bowl, add beans, cucumber, tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, avocado,
much of the parsley, then sprinkle a bit of lime juice over the avocado.
3. Gently mix, season to taste, then chill.
4. Meanwhile, in large skillet over md-high heat, add oil and garlic, and bring oil up
to shrimp cooking temperature.
5. Add shrimp, Season as desired, and cook about 1-2 minutes per side-
depending on size. Turn off heat. Remove shrimp from pan onto paper towel
to drain and cool a bit. Remove garlic from pan.
6. Pour pan liquid into heat-proof container, add lime juice and whisk into oil,
then season to taste, including stevia-if a bit of sweetness desired, and stir.
May adjust oil to lime juice ratio as desired, now.
8. Add a bit of parsley to this dressing and stir.
7. Gently stir shrimp into bowl. *If desired cut large shrimp into 2-3 pieces.
8. Pour dressing over salad mixture and gently incorporate to coat mixture.

To Serve:
Plate the servings, then sprinkle a bit of parsley over the top.
Serve with Parmesan crackers.

Options:
For a Mexican style (non-keto) dish: substitute in black beans and cilantro, add a (seeds removed) sliced or minced jalapeno and/or a serrano pepper. Add a 1-2 t of cumin. May top with guacamole or pico de gallo. Substitute in tortilla chips. Use 2-3T honey in dressing instead of stevia if sweetness desired.
