Let’s make a long story short, shall we? When you put the words “bacon” and “cheeseburger” in the same title, everyone gets excited. When you add the word “simple” to its name, you know everyone wins. So without even seeing the recipe, you can bet that Simple Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole needs to hit your table very soon!
Save yourself some effort and make two or three of these at once. Bake one for your dinner, then freeze the others (unbaked) to use another time. Then you’ve got “simple,” “bacon,” “cheeseburger,” and “freezer friendly” all in the same sentence. All the busy mothers everywhere cried with joy over this news.
I recommend making Bacon Bits like this. I cut the bacon with kitchen shears to make it simple.

Laura, you are a lifesaver! I had no supper inspiration until I saw this post. I just bought some bacon today, so as I type, bacon & hamburger are browning on the stove. It will be another one of your recipes that will be popular in our family! Thank you!
I was right – it was a hit. We all loved this recipe! I served it with corn on the cob from our garden. : )
Add a grilled bun and it looks like you’ve also got “Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joe”!
This looks simply awesome…..but, but, but the fat and cholesterol…..?
Meat, eggs, and cream are all real food (and are especially good if they come from well sourced animals). I don’t fear the fat and cholesterol from real food as they nourish and from my research, are actually beneficial to us! :)
I had no idea what I was preparing for dinner tonight, until now! I have all of these real food ingredients on hand and I am guaranteed a win with this casserole! Thank you Laura
Looks great! Can you omit he tomato paste? I’m out right now!
Definitely! Skip it and you’ll be just fine!
Do you beat the 8 eggs first?
I don’t, because I’m lazy about taking extra steps! I just stir it all together. :)
