Recipe Notes:

This recipe has been updated, and we have updated from the original photos taken in 2016. It’s a family favorite. Kids and adults alike will absolutely love this crave worthy cheeseburger skillet.

Seasoning: Everything is sort of to taste in this recipe, and we recommend seasoning to taste. Start with a little less salt, then add more as needed. Everyone has different taste buds, and we would hate if you thought it was too salty!

For the onions, if you prefer less of a “bite” to your onions, you could definitely soften them in skillet with your meat and bacon bits. This is a preference thing! We sometimes like a little bit of a “bite” from the onions, so we put them in raw, so that they cook down just a little bit.

Milk: We initially used heavy whipping cream only for this recipe, but it definitely affects the calorie count as I’m sure you could imagine! We started buying Fairlife whole milk. It’s lactose free, ultra filtered and only 6 net carbs per 1 cup. We also just had that on hand. During this time of staying inside, we have been improvising quite a bit. We encourage you to do the same and have fun in the kitchen!

Bacon: The bacon bits are certainly a shortcut in this recipe. You could definitely cook up some bacon on your own, but it’s extra work that we don’t always find necessary. We find the best deals on bacon bits at Costco or Aldi, two of our most favorite grocery stores. We love to crisp these in the skillet after our beef is browned, but this is an optional step.

Serve With: If you’re on a low carb or keto diet like we follow, some of our favorite ways to serve this is with burger toppings! We love whipping up a batch of our homemade low carb thousand island dressing, which kind of doubles as a very pickle forward big mac copycat type of sauce. We also love serving with pickles, iceburg lettuce, tomatoes, your favorite low sugar ketchup, mayonnaise, or really whatever you like. We’ve linked some of our favorite ready made sauces in our Amazon store if you’re looking for ideas!

Let’s Make It! ​


Preheat your oven to 350°F. Cut your onions into your desired size. We like medium sized strips or rounds for this recipe, but it’s up to you.

Warm your cast iron over medium heat. Brown your beef in the cast iron with your avocado oil or butter and big pinch of salt and pepper, along with about half of your seasonings, reserving some for your egg mixture. Once beef is browned, add in your bacon bits to crisp up. Then, layer on your onions.

In a large bowl using your hand mixer, beat together your eggs, milk and cream, remaining seasonings, salt and pepper, and tomato paste. Then fold in some of the shredded cheese. Pour the mixture over top of the burger and onions.

Sprinkle on the rest of your shredded cheese, then bake for about 30 minutes at 350°F. You can broil on high at the end at the end if you want the cheese to get a little crispier on top. We love to serve with our homemade thousand island dressing and other yummy burger condiments and dressings.
