Casseroles are the ultimate comfort food. This casserole is a favorite with my family, even those not following any specific eating plan.
In a large skillet over medium heat cook bacon until still soft, but mostly cooked. Leave the bacon grease in the skillet and stir in optional onions and/or mushrooms if using until soft. Next brown beef in the bacon fat, with the optional mushrooms/onions if using.
GAPS: Use sugar-free bacon. Butcher Box has amazing bacon and is what I use most often.
KETO: Consider omitting the ketchup or lessening the amount, depending on your carb tolerance.
CARNIVORE/ZERO-CARB: Seasonings are personal preference. Omitting both ketchup and mustard and just using salt is still really good! Consider using mushrooms only and omitting the onions.
