Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Pie
This Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Pie is an easy and delicious low carb meal the whole family will love. No need to heat up your kitchen! This post is sponsored by Safeway.
Here we are in August already, friends. How did that happen? I swear 5 minutes ago it was June and the kids were just getting out of school. The summer seemed to stretch out before us in a glorious fashion and I envisioned all the fun things we would do in the nice weather. But then I blinked and I looked around and the summer was almost gone. We have a bit to go yet, the kids don’t start back until the end of August and I have a trip up to Vancouver, BC to see family. But I still have that overwhelming sense that it’s vanishing before my very eyes.
And it’s the dog days now, as they say. We’ve actually had amazing weather all summer long, really mild and sunny. We haven’t had too many true “dog days”, where you feel indolent and lazy as all the heat sucks your energy. But I know that the rest of the country hasn’t necessarily fared so well. And I know only too well what it’s like to cook for a family on one of those days. You need to make dinner but it’s too hot to turn on the oven. And you don’t even want to think about standing outside near a hot grill. But that darn family is still expecting dinner, so what do you do?
You grab your slow cooker, of course. You make your life simple and you keep the kitchen cool at the same time, so it’s a win win. Just crisp up some bacon and brown some ground beef, dump them in the slow cooker with cheese and eggs and some spices. And then go sit back down with a cool drink and just try to survive. See, I know what you need!
And Safeway has everything you need to make this meal extra easy and healthy. I love their O Organics line because it carries almost everything I need to make some of my low carb favorites. Grassfed organic beef? Check. Organic shredded cheese? Check. Cut and washed Organic produce? Check! They even carry these peeled garlic cloves that help me cut down on prep time. And the cloves are packed in smaller packages so that when you only use a few for a recipe, the rest stay fresh for several weeks. (I hate peeling garlic, can you tell?). The quality of the O Organics line is excellent and I feel confident I am feeding my family a healthy and delicious meal.
While I get my O Organics at Safeway, they are available from all of the Albertsons family of stores, including ACME Markets, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilions, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Shaw’s, Star Market, United Express, United and Carrs/Safeway. It’s a great line of organic products for very reasonable prices, so I recommend hitting your Safeway or Albertson’s (or equivalent!) and stocking up!

This is similar to the cheeseburger “quiche” pie I have made for years. The cream cheese and pickles are different but I will try it. Not sure about using a slow cooker since it won’t take long to bake in the counter top oven.
Mine ended up tasting like plain mince topped with some eggy cheese and bacon ?? Unsure if I did something wrong or it just wasn’t to my liking, which is unusual as I enjoy your recipes for the most part. I did increase the hot pepper flakes and doubled the garlic cloves but thought it still needed a bit more oomph.
I have this in the oven right now!! I added some mushrooms and mixed Italian dried herbs with the meat mix. Cannot wait for the family to try. I am sure it’s going to be a huge hit, just like all the other things I have made from your wonderful recipe collection. Thank you so much Carolyn xxxx
Ok so my question is, does it end up being eggs with meat and cheese? I don’t like eggs and I am just worried it is gonna be like scrambled eggs. I can’t tell from the picture if it is eggs or if is like some fathead type “bread” … and if it is like scrambled eggs, half my house won’t even touch it so want to make sure before adding it to the list. Thanks!
Im confused. Your recipe calls for .75 cup of shredded cheese, but your directions say mix 1 cup of cheese in the meat mixture. Then when cooked, top with the rest of the cheese. How much cheese did you actually use?

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
With a few vegetarian options at Wendy's, Sour Cream and Chive Baked Potatoes
