Introduction

This is a Keto friendly recipe, combining an altered Keema Beef recipe with delicious bacon cups! Each one is very filling, so it's easy to make these for a meal and they keep well in the fridge!
(NOTE: The turmeric will turn everything it touches yellow, including the grease! Be careful of getting it on clothing!)

Ingredients

    12 slices lower-sodium bacon, halved
    1lb (16oz) Ground beef, lean
    4 oz Cream Cheese
    3/4 cup Colby and Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
    1/4 tsp Ground Turmeric
    1/4 tsp Ground Coriander
    1/4 tsp Paprika
    1 tsp Onion powder
    2 tsp Garlic powder
    Salt, to taste*
    Pepper, to taste*

    (* nutritional info calculated with 1tsp each)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
-Arrange bacon in a lightly greased jumbo muffin pan, with 3-4 pieces per cup. (An easy arrangement seems to be 2 pieces around the edge and 2 pieces making an X on the bottom. This forms a very sturdy 'basket')
-Put the bacon in the oven for approximately 10 minutes (until the edges are crisp)
-Combine the cream cheese and all spices in a bowl until smooth. Set to the side for now.
-Brown the ground beef in a medium saucepan. When it's nearly done, add the cream cheese mixture and simmer until the consistency is uniform throughout.
-Spoon half of the beef mixture into the bacon cups, pressing it firmly into the bottom so it holds nicely.
-Add half of the shredded cheese on top of the beef.
-Add the rest of the beef mixture, followed by the rest of the cheese.
-Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until cheese is golden.
-Let cool slightly before serving. Can hold well in the fridge for 3 days.

Serving Size: Makes 6 servings in a Jumbo Muffin pan
