Bacon-lovers, you’re in for a real treat because this awesome double bacon ground beef paleo casserole is just what you need after a long day. We won’t be playing around with this recipe because 12 strips are going down—and trust me, that probably won’t be enough. Happens to me all the time. The cayenne pepper adds a touch of heat while the Italian seasoning or even just the dried parsley adds an earthy, fresh flavor to your lean ground beef. The cauliflower mashed potato made with nutritional yeast and unsweetened almond milk adds essential micronutrients and a rich, fluffy texture to your casserole that we know you’re going to love. I’ve tried serving this to guests and they don’t even realize it’s not made of potatoes until I point it out—that’s how great it is.
