ok here is the one I make all the time and my wife (non LC) and daughter LOVE it as well. I make the whole 9x13 and cut it into 12 small squares and it lasts well in the fridge. I have made it and taken on a weeks vacation and it was a lifesaver! You can make the pieces bigger if you need a larger portion.
-1lb ground beef
-1lb ground sausage (i use HOT)
-1 block cream cheese (8oz?)
-half an onion
-half a green bell pepper
-a carton of fresh mushrooms
-a few eggs (2-8 based on preference)
-shredded cheese (@2-4 cups, again preference)
-Chalula hot sauce (optional of course)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
I chop the veggies and get them sautéing in a large pot/pan in olive or coconut oil
. I start with the GBP and onion because I don't like them to be crunchy and they take longer to get soft. After the GBP starts to get soft I throw in both of the meats and get them browned up almost done (toss in a little salt and pepper). Drain grease and return to pan. Put in block of CC over low heat (to help melt) until thoroughly mixed. (This is where you can add some hot sauce of your choice to the mixture if you want. I like mine a little on the spicy side and sometimes I add it here and sometimes I just put it on top after I get a slice from the fridge.) Spread mixture into a well greased 9x13 pan. (for some reason I have not had good luck with PAM, the mixture still sticks to the glass. Butter seems to work better for me, but it is totally up to you.) I evenly spread out the meat mixture but don't pack it down too tight. In a separate bowl I beat up a few eggs (I would say 4 is a safe place to start if you don't like eggs, but I use 6 or 7) and salt and pepper. Pour egg snot over meat mixture and then cover with your favorite shredded cheese. I use the WalMart brand Colby jack mix and probably use about 3-4 cups because I love cheese
. Cook in the oven for about 30 minutes, you want to make sure the eggs are cooked, everything else is already done.
The cream cheese is optional but makes it REALLY good and creamy and gets some fat in there. If you have issues with CC stalling then skip this ingredient. It is out of this world right out of the oven. I am going to experiment with adding some bacon this week. This is a very base recipe that you can obviously tweak and add (or subtract) as desired to your tastes. I started with another recipe and kept tweaking until I got here and this is definitely a staple in my diet. I have lost so much weight eating this delicious casserole. Please let me know if this works out for you.
