Benefits of Low Carb Keto Breakfast Casserole

I’m here today to share why a low carb keto breakfast casserole is the perfect way to start your day on the right foot. We’ll look at the benefits, what goes into your casserole and how you can prepare it for maximum deliciousness.

First and foremost, let’s talk about why this breakfast is good for you: Low carb keto breakfast casseroles are incredibly nutrient-dense. Many traditional egg-based breakfasts are cooked with plenty of unhealthy ingredients such as sausage, bacon and cheese – but with a keto-friendly casserole, these items are replaced by healthier alternatives like bell peppers, onions, mushrooms and spinach.

By using a combination of healthy ingredients like eggs, cream cheese and nuts or seeds as gluten-free bases for these recipes, you can create an entirely grain-free meal that’s as tasty as it is nutritious. You’ll be giving your body a powerful boost of protein and fat while still enjoying the flavorful tastes of breakfast! And because most recipes only require 2 hours of prep time or less (depending on how many servings you want to make), they’re not too much work either.

On top of that, all the carb content in low carb keto breakfast casseroles comes from healthy sources: mostly vegetables with some dairy for added creaminess. This gives you an added bonus: thanks to the high fiber content in many veggies, you’ll stay full longer which means more sustained energy throughout the day!

So there we have it – low carb keto breakfasts are super convenient and have plenty of health benefits too! Ready to get cooking? Let’s take a look at what goes into making one…

Overview of Ingredients

When you’re following a keto diet, it can be challenging to find breakfast options that are both low carb and tasty. But this low carb keto breakfast casserole recipe is a delicious and easy way to get your morning off to the right start.

This dish features several key ingredients. First, you’ll need a pound of bulk pork sausage, which provides delicious flavor as well as protein and healthy fats. You’ll also need diced peppers and onions for an added pop of color and flavor, plus six large eggs for additional protein. Aside from these ingredients, uncured bacon adds an extra smoky flavor while unsweetened almond milk delivers creaminess without the carbohydrates. Lastly, shredded cheese takes this casserole to the next level – make sure you choose one that’s low in carbs like mozzarella or Jack cheese! All told, these ingredients make for a perfect keto breakfast that’s sure to keep you full until lunchtime.


Making a low carb keto breakfast casserole is a great way to start the morning off on the right foot. All you need to do is gather some simple ingredients, preheat the oven and you’ll be ready to make a delicious low carb breakfast casserole. Plus, the prep time is short, so you can easily make this casserole on busy mornings.

In this section, I’ll be walking you through the steps of prepping this tasty breakfast casserole. Let’s get started!

Preparing the Casserole Dish

To get started on the low carb keto breakfast casserole, you’ll need to prepare your casserole dish. Start by greasing your baking dish – an 8″x8″ pan or 9″x9″ pan both work wonderfully if you’re serving 4-6 people. You can always use larger dish if you’re cooking for more.

Once you’ve prepared the baking pan, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Next, in a large bowl combine all of the ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Then evenly spread the mixture out into the greased baking dish and make sure it’s levelled.

Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until the edges are slightly golden brown. When ready to serve remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into slices and serving. Enjoy!

Choosing the Ingredients

When it comes to making a delicious and satisfying low-carb breakfast casserole, choosing the right ingredients is key. Although there are endless variations of this classic dish, the two essential ingredients are a low-carbohydrate baking mix and meat of your choice. Add to those two staples what ever vegetables you’d like for added flavor.

The lower carb baking mix or flour is essential for getting the desired texture. This can be made from almond or coconut flour, both of which are widely available in most stores. Make sure to read nutrition labels as some brands may have added sugar or starches that they don’t need in this recipe. The meat will serve as your primary source of protein and should also have no fillers or additives such as sugar or starches.

For vegetables, you can choose any vegetable that fits into your diet but we find that mushrooms, spinach, onion and bell peppers work well with this dish. When selecting these vegetables look for ones that may still slightly crunch when you bite into them. You can also spice up the flavor by adding herbs such as oregano, basil or thyme–just make sure not to overpower the other flavors in your casserole with too much spice! Finally topping off your casserole with cheese will add great flavor while providing calcium and fat – just be sure to pick a variety that is low in carbohydrates such as goat cheese or feta cheese.

Making a low carb keto breakfast casserole doesn’t have to be overly complicated; It all starts with having quality ingredients on hand so you can enjoy this comforting morning favorite without ever having to feel guilty about it!

Cooking Instructions

Are you looking to make a delicious low-carb keto breakfast casserole? I’m here to show you exactly how to do it. This casserole is packed with healthy ingredients and it’s a great option for those following a keto diet. In this section, I’ll walk you through the steps of cooking this delicious breakfast casserole. So let’s get started!

Preheat the Oven

Before you begin, make sure you preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (177 degrees Celsius). This should take about 10-15 minutes, so be sure to give the oven enough time to get hot.

Once the oven is preheated, it’s time to assemble your casserole. Take your prepared ingredients and add them into a greased 9×13 inch (23×33 cm) baking dish. Make sure that all of your ingredients are evenly distributed in order to ensure even cooking. Once everything is combined and spread evenly in the baking dish, gently press down with a spatula or spoon if needed.

Assemble the Casserole

Now that everything is prepped and ready, it’s time to assemble this delicious breakfast casserole! Start by preheating the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan with butter or cooking spray and set aside.

Layer the casserole by starting with a layer of half of the bacon in the bottom of prepared pan. Then layer ¾ cup cream, ½ cup shredded cheese, 1/3 cup diced bell peppers, and a layer each of sausage pieces and onion slices. Sprinkle with some salt, pepper, and oregano. Add another layer of bacon, cream, cheese, bell peppers, sausage pieces and onions. Sprinkle generously over all with Italian seasoning mix and top with remaining ½ cup shredded cheese before baking.

Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown on top before serving warm for breakfast or brunch! Enjoy this savory low carb keto breakfast casserole on its own or pair it with your favorite sides for a complete meal!

Bake the Casserole

Once you’ve completed all the steps and added the casserole to a baking dish, it’s time to pop it in the oven. Baking this low-carb keto breakfast casserole takes about 25 minutes in a preheated oven set at 400°F (200°C).

The egg whites will cook through and will start to brown slightly on top, giving you a nice golden crust. Make sure you keep an eye on your casserole while it’s baking – if it starts getting too dark, simply turn down the heat by 10 or 15 degrees (Fahrenheit or Celsius) to prevent burning.

Meanwhile, after 20 minutes of baking time, check on your casserole by shaking the baking dish lightly – if the eggs are still jiggling a lot, continue cooking until they’re barely moving when shaken. Then remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving in slices or using a spoon to scoop out portions. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions

One of the great things about this low carb keto breakfast casserole is that it can easily be served in a variety of ways. Depending on the occasion and who you are serving, you have the ability to present this casserole in a multitude of ways. Whether you’re serving a single person or a crowd, let’s explore all the ways you can serve this tasty, low carb keto breakfast casserole:

  • As a side dish
  • As a main dish
  • As a brunch dish
  • As a meal-prep dish
  • As a breakfast dish
  • As a snack

Topping Ideas

Once the low carb keto breakfast casserole is made and ready for the oven, it’s time to add a finishing touch. Here are some ideas that you can sprinkle over the top of your casserole to add a little extra flavor:

  • Diced jalapeños
  • Fried bacon/sausage crumbles
  • Grated cheese (cheddar or Parmesan)
  • Fresh or dried herbs such as thyme or oregano
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Chopped onion or shallots
  • Paprika, garlic powder, salt & pepper mix

You can also add another layer of richness with some cream cheese. Simply spread it over the top of your casserole before baking and give it a few minutes to soften before adding your topping choices. This is especially delicious if you’ve added sausage crumbles to your dish!

Serving Sizes

I recommend serving this low carb keto breakfast casserole in individual sizes to make portion control easier. This also makes it easier to grab and go. One serving of this casserole is 75 grams (about 1/2 cup). You can serve these with a light salad or fresh vegetables for an additional boost of nutrition and fiber. You can also reheat any leftovers for a quick, tasty meal the next day.

For larger households, you can make a double-batch of low carb keto breakfast casserole and keep it stored in the refrigerator or freezer until you need it. If you’re looking to feed a bigger crowd, this dish is easily doubled or tripled in size with no extra effort involved! Just adjust your cooking time as appropriate for the larger batches and divide into smaller containers when done cooking.

Summary of Benefits

After making this low carb keto breakfast casserole, you’ll be able to experience the following benefits:

  1. Reduced carbohydrate intake – Because of the omission of common breakfast carbs like potatoes, white rice, and even oats, you’ll be able to cut down on unnecessary carbohydrates while still getting all the necessary calories.
  2. High in protein – Lean meats like bacon, ham and sausage have great amounts of protein that help build muscle while providing you with energy to start your day.

Tips for Making the Best Casserole

If you’re looking for an easy, delicious, and filling breakfast that’s low in carbs and high in protein, then this keto breakfast casserole is for you! Here are some tips to help ensure perfect results every time:

  • Use fresh or frozen ingredients. Fresh items like bacon, cheese, and eggs will give this dish the best flavor. Frozen items like hash browns also work really well.
  • Take the time to cook everything evenly. If your bacon isn’t cooked all the way through, it will make your dish soggy and unpalatable.
  • Line your baking dish with parchment paper before adding the ingredients. This helps the casserole not stick to the dish and makes it much easier to remove when done baking.
  • Be sure to let the casserole sit for 5-10 minutes after baking before serving – this allows all of the flavors and textures to set in nicely.
  • If possible, use a cast iron skillet instead of an oven-proof glass or ceramic dish. The heat from a cast iron pan helps give this dish a beautiful golden color on top as well as extra crispy edges!

Following these easy tips will help you create a delicious keto breakfast casserole that’s sure to please even the pickiest breakfast eater!
