I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

I just want to say this great!  Thank you for all your recipes! My husband said to remember this one and don’t change a thing!


Thank you Karen!


What would be the calorie count per serving? I see you have the macronutrients broken down, but not the overall calories. Can you help me with this please?
This is delicious! Thanks so much!


Hi Christen, it is in the nutrition facts as "energy" / "kcal". I hope this helps!


I made this for dinner the other day and my husband announced, "this is delicious!" I think this just might replace the eggplant lasagna as our new FAVORITE recipe. 😊  I baked this in our convection oven so I bumped up the temperature to 400 cooked it covered for 20 minutes and then uncovered it, added the bacon and cooked it for another 30-35 mins. (apparently convection ovens just take longer to cook everything). However, it turned out quite well. I really liked adding the almond flour because it thickened it up. I can see lots of variations on this recipe too. Well done!!
I'm thankful every day for all the great ideas you post on the blog and app. Eating ketogenically is much easier when there's lots of variety and new ideas to keep your taste buds inspired! THANK YOU!


Oh thank you Ann, you made my day! Thank you so much for your lovely feedback and kind words! That is correct 😊 As a general rule, you should increase the temperature by 20 C when converting it from fan-assisted to conventional oven.


It seems the “planner” icon is missing... can’t add to my planner.


Hi Teri, this recipe is from the App, in the Starter pack - check out the intro in this post and click on the link that says "Bacon & Cheeseburger Casserole". It will take you right to the Meals tab. I didn't want to duplicate the recipe that is already in the App so the plus icon is missing. I hope this helps! 😊


Hi. We tried this bacon cheeseburger casserole but it turned out like cheeseburger paste. It tasted good but not set up and looked a bit like dog food. My husband made it and he’s s professional chef, so I know he followed the recipe carefully.


Hi Amy, the freshly baked casserole looks crumbly like in the video recipe above. I have to admit may not look very appetising but that's the issue with this type of dish. When it's cooked, it's crumbly. It does look better the next day after it cools down and settles before you slice and reheat it. Just for comparison, this is how mine looks the day after:


Hey, it seems that the link to sugar free ketchup is broken?


Thank you! Fixed 😊
