I bet I know what you're thinking. "Did I just read the title correctly? Is this lady crazy?" Yes, you read the title correctly and maybe. One time when I was out to eat with my family I came across a coffee burger. I thought it sounded amazing even though it was pretty different.
It had coffee grounds and gouda cheese on it along with a few other things. I thought well, I love coffee and love gouda cheese. So, I ordered the cheeseburger and LOVED it. After eating this meal, I knew that I wanted to make a coffee cheeseburger casserole for you all.
How about a nice big cup of antioxidants in the morning or lunch with this la java cheeseburger casserole? Coffee is one food/drink where Americans get the most antioxidants from. Love cinnamon? Up your coffee with cinnamon as this spice gives you more antioxidants and also polyphenols. Polyphenols are a type of antioxidants. (There are 3 types of antioxidants.) In addition to getting antioxidants in your cup of joe, coffee also has small quantities of potassium, niacin, vitamin E and magnesium. Magnesium also helps your body use the hormone of insulin. (1)

Notes about the Recipe
Please understand that the nutrition may change depending on the products you buy especially the meat items. For the nutrition info, I used beef at 20% fat and bacon with 3 g fat per slice. Remember that even though your carton of heavy whipping cream may say 0g of carbs, it most likely has 0.5 g or so. This is allowed for nutrition labels.
