Ingredients: For the Casserole Base:

  • 1 ½ pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

For the Creamy Sauce:

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For Topping:

  • 1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions:

  1. Sauté and Season: In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium heat. Add chopped onions, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook until the onions are translucent and the beef is browned.
  2. Mushroom Magic: Add sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and become golden brown. Ensure any excess liquid evaporates.
  3. Creamy Fusion: In a bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Mix until you achieve a smooth and creamy sauce.
  4. Combine and Layer: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a greased baking dish, layer half of the beef and mushroom mixture. Pour half of the creamy sauce over it and sprinkle with Swiss cheese. Repeat the layers.
  5. Cheesy Crown: Top the casserole with shredded Swiss cheese, ensuring an even distribution. This cheese will melt into a golden crown during baking.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly, the cheese is melted, and the top is gloriously golden.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Once out of the oven, sprinkle fresh parsley over the casserole for a burst of color and freshness. Allow it to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Cook Notes:

  • Beefy Bliss: Opt for lean ground beef to minimize excess grease in the casserole.
  • Mushroom Moisture: Ensure the mushrooms release their moisture and achieve a golden brown color for enhanced flavor and texture.
  • Rest for Flavor: Allowing the casserole to rest before serving helps the flavors meld and intensify.

Variations:

  1. Bacon Bonanza: Enhance the smokiness by adding crispy bacon bits between the layers.
  2. Jalapeño Jazz: Infuse a bit of heat by adding sliced jalapeños for a spicy kick.

Keto Versions:

  1. Cauliflower Comfort: Replace the onions with caramelized cauliflower for a low-carb alternative.
  2. Cheese Lover’s Dream: Increase the amount of Swiss cheese or add other keto-friendly cheeses for an extra cheesy experience.

Low-Carb Version: Reduce the amount of onions and use a sugar-free ketchup in the beef mixture to maintain the classic taste with fewer carbs.
