Keto Casserole, Ground Beef and Mozzarella

Here's a simple recipe that I adapted from one of my favorite low carb recipe sites, Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes. I say adapted because I used products I had on hand (mozzarella instead of cheddar, fresh peppers instead of canned chiles, etc.,) I've previously made the dish to her exact specifications and it turned out wonderfully Lovely Mate gave a thumbs up to today's version.

Recipe below.

I’ve been fortunate to have exposure to leading researchers, physicians and journalists regarding the ketogenic diet, also known as LCHF (low carb/high fat). We are all responsible for our own choices, including what we put in our mouths. I welcome questions, comments and even civil criticism. I’m still learning. So, if you have something to add, go for it. Thanks!  - Casey
