Do you guys know about Joe’s Special?  It’s a dish that started in San Francisco in the 1920s that consisted of eggs, ground beef, spinach and garlic.   A few places make their own version, including a Brooklyn based restaurant that my husband fell in love with.  I wanted to try a modern spin on it, removing the spinach and replacing it with green beans and peppers. The result is a delicious Scrambled Egg and Ground Beef Casserole!

Keto Casserole Recipe

This casserole is keto friendly and low carb, something I’ve been requested to make more of from my readers since I posted my Cauliflower Casserole recipe!  It’s made with eggs and ground beef to be high in protein, and a homemade cream of mushroom soup that’s made with almond milk.  Did I mention there’s shredded cheese on top to make it extra delicious?  

Alongside the scrambled eggs and ground beef, this casserole includes green beans and chopped peppers.  One cup of green beans has 6g net carbs, so they’re a great vegetable addition to this dish.

We’re going to make a homemade cream of mushroom soup that’s keto friendly.  This is based on my favorite cream of mushroom soup recipe, but we’re using almond milk instead of regular milk.  Homemade cream of mushroom soup is so easy to make you’ll never buy the canned version again!

  • Is one cup of green beans correct? It looks like more in the picture. If I were to substitute spinach instead of green beans, would it be 1 cup or more? I am on a high protein diet. This recipe seems to fit the bill.
    Thanks

  • Oh I so messed this up! I did everything but when I baked it I covered it. It was like boiled soup when I pulled it out. Nothing like your picture. So now I have it uncovered in the oven hopeing to save it some how. I will give it another try though cause it sounds so good. Guess I’m one of those that needs everything spelled out for her. Keep up your good work!
