Hamburger, Sausage, Broccoli Alfredo--Low Carb


I had all the ingredients for this and quickly put it together for dinner one night when Don was gone.  Kathleen and I really liked it.
Hamburger, Sausage, Broccoli Alfredo - Low Carb
 
1 lb ground beef
1 lb bulk sausage
1 tsp oregano, dried
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
10 to 12 oz fresh broccoli  Beth used frozen, thawed and par cooked.
1 (8-oz) block cream cheese
1/2 c heavy cream
1/2 c Parmesan cheese, grated
8 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
 
In a large skillet, brown hamburger, sausage, onion and garlic over a medium heat. Season to taste with oregano, salt and pepper; drain excess fat.
 
Meanwhile, steam the broccoli until tender yet still a little crisp; season with salt and pepper. Add to meat mixture
 
Place cream cheese in a microwaveable bowl and microwave on HIGH for about 45 seconds, until soft; whisk until creamy and smooth. Gradually whisk in the cream until smooth; stir in the Parmesan cheese. Add this to the meat mixture
 
Combine hamburger, broccoli and cream sauce in a large greased casserole dish (2 ½ quart or larger). Taste test and add additional salt and pepper if desired. Top with shredded cheese.
 
Bake at 350º for about 35-45 minutes, until bubbly around edges.
