### Ingredients
Here’s what you’ll need to whip up this delectable casserole:
– 6 slices of bacon
– 1 lb ground beef
– 1 small onion, diced
– 1/4 cup ketchup
– 1/4 cup mayo
– 1 tbsp mustard
– 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
– 12 slices of bread
– 1 tbsp butter

### Instructions
1. **Preheat**: Start by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C).
2. **Cook the Bacon**: In a skillet, cook the bacon until it’s crispy. Remove from skillet and set aside to cool.
3. **Brown the Beef**: Using the same skillet, brown the ground beef along with the diced onion until the beef is fully cooked.
4. **Mix Condiments**: Stir in the ketchup, mayo, and mustard with the beef and onion mixture. Remove the skillet from heat.
5. **Combine Bacon and Beef**: Crumble the cooked bacon and mix it into the beef and onion mixture.
6. **Layer with Bread and Cheese**: Butter one side of each bread slice. Arrange 6 slices, buttered side down, in a baking dish. Sprinkle half of the shredded cheddar cheese over the bread slices.
7. **Add Beef Mixture**: Evenly spread the beef and bacon mixture over the cheese layer.
8. **Top with Cheese**: Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheddar cheese on top of the beef mixture.
9. **Final Layer**: Place the remaining 6 slices of bread, buttered side up, over the top of the cheese layer.
10. **Bake**: Bake the casserole in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the bread turns golden brown and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
11. **Cool and Serve**: Let the casserole cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!

### Notes
– **Bacon Alternatives**: You can substitute turkey bacon for a leaner option or omit it altogether for a vegetarian-friendly version (using veggie ground meat).
– **Cheese Variations**: Feel free to experiment with different cheeses such as Monterey Jack, mozzarella, or a sharp cheddar blend for additional flavor profiles.
– **Bread Choices**: While the recipe calls for regular sandwich bread, sourdough or whole grain bread can add an interesting twist.

### Suggestions
– **Add Veggies**: Incorporate sliced tomatoes, pickles, or lettuce into the layers for extra freshness and flavor.
– **Serve With**: This casserole pairs wonderfully with a simple side salad or some crispy fries for a complete meal.
