Low-carb Cheeseburger Casserole

Who else is sick of cooking and wants to have a meal out? To get a break from cooking, I have been having my kids cook dinner at least 1 time a week. It’s a great way for me to get a cooking break and for them to become educated in the kitchen! The hard part is having simple recipes for them to cook that also keep us on track with our fitness and nutrition goals. This recipe is the perfect recipe for them to keep things easy, tasty, and low carb! It’s so simple that I don’t even make it anymore, my kids do. When we have our normal schedules of sports, and school, and I am super busy with coaching volleyball and training clients in the evening, I rely on my 11 year old daughter’s help to get a healthy meal prepared…she always goes to this one!
