Like any meat, beef is mainly composed of proteins. It is usually of high-quality, containing all nine essential amino acids needed for the growth and maintenance of your body.

Protein has been shown to help you build lean muscle mass, which burns more calories than fat (1). It also helps keep you full so that you eat fewer calories per day. 

For a truly authentic cheeseburger taste, our recipe calls for mustard, bacon, onions, tomatoes, pickles and cheese. It’s everything you would normally expect from a cheeseburger in the convenience of a casserole with no bun needed!

Tomatoes are high in lycopene, which is an antioxidant pigment that has been shown to fight disease-promoting oxidative stress (2). Interestingly, the lycopene content in tomatoes increases as you cook them. Onions are a prebiotic food and positively contribute to gut health.

Be sure your animals come from clean sources. This means going with organic bacon that is free from hormones, antibiotics, nitrates, and added sugar. Your beef should be organic, grass-finished if possible and raised without hormones, antibiotics or chemicals.
