I love a good casserole. They can be put together in a hurry, are easy to cook (just pop them in the oven), and are very filling.
Casseroles work for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And are the ultimate comfort food. And bonus – they adapt perfectly to the ketogenic diet.
Keto Breakfast Casseroles
There are 5 basic ingredients needed for a keto breakfast casserole – eggs, meat, dairy, cheese, and low-carb veggies.
Put these all together and you have a healthy, filling, low carb breakfast that works equally well for a week-day breakfast or a Sunday brunch.
How To Make a Keto Breakfast Casserole
Each recipe will have its own particular approach, but they all follow a standard set of steps and then tweaked a little.
Here are basic instructions for a simple keto breakfast casserole:
- Sauté garlic in a skillet, then add whichever meat you are cooking (bacon, sausages, ground beef, for example).
- Prep your vegetables. You can put them in your casserole raw (depending on the vegetable), or quickly pan fry them first for extra flavor. A breakfast casserole is also a great way to use up leftover roasted veggies.
- Mix up your egg, cream, and spices.
- Get your casserole dish ready – an 8×8 or 9×9 is a good size.
- Layer your meat, vegetables, and egg. Top with a cheese of your choice, and place in the oven.
Meal Prep for Keto Breakfast Casseroles
One of the great things about keto breakfast casseroles is that they are perfect for meal prepping!
You can make a big batch on a Sunday, portion it out, and refrigerate or freeze the individual portions. To thaw it out, place the portion in the fridge overnight, and then reheat in the morning.
You can reheat your breakfast casserole in the microwave, but you will get the best results if you reheat it in the oven.
