I love a good breakfast casserole, and this keto breakfast casserole is perfect for those of you looking to enjoy a flavorful low carb breakfast! It’s packed with some healthy veggies that add flavor and texture so you won’t be eating the same old boring casserole. Cheese is optional, so this recipe can easily be Paleo + Whole30 too!
What veggies did you sneak in this breakfast casserole?
Eating a keto/low carb diet is hard, and we’ve found it can feel pretty limiting in what vegetables you consume. Sometimes you really want the flavor of garlic and onions, you know?
The good news is, when you make a large dish like this keto breakfast casserole, per serving you are only getting a small amount of garlic and onion so it remains fairly low carb. We also added in some mushrooms, spinach and fresh sage to compliment the eggs and sausage.
To cheese or not to cheese in this low carb breakfast casserole
Cheese is really amazing, but we like providing you with options. Not everyone can tolerate dairy or might be cutting out dairy for a Whole30 or other reasons. For this recipe, the cheese is totally optional. It will turn out great either way! We added some avocado on top when we left out the cheese for a little bit of extra flavor.
