  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional toppings: Dill pickle slices, thinly sliced green onions, slices red onion and cherry tomatoes, halved


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, 10-12 minutes, breaking up beef into crumbles; drain.
  2. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Sprinkle with bacon and 1 cup cheddar cheese. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, tomato paste, heavy cream, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper until well combined. Pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 cups cheddar cheese.
  3. Bake, uncovered, until set and golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Garnish with toppings as desired.
