Variations on this recipe

The recipe is delicious and works well if you’re on a Keto or low carb diet. However, if you’re not restricted in your diet, here are a few ingredients that you might consider adding to change the basic recipe just a bit.

  • Add a can of drained and chopped tomatoes to the cooked beef portion of the recipe
  • If you’re looking for leaner meat, you can substitute ground turkey
  • If you’re looking for spicier meat, use ground sausage or mix it with the beef.
  • Add pre-cooked or leftover white or brown rice to the ground beef mixture
  • Keep it Italian and use shredded Mozzarella cheese on top instead of cheddar cheese

How to store leftovers

Tightly cover or transfer to an airtight container any leftovers and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat individual servings in the microwave at short intervals until warm. Alternately, transfer leftovers to a baking dish, the cover will foil, and heat in the oven on a low temperature until heated through.
