If you need a new low carb breakfast to try, this easy breakfast casserole is seriously good! So filling and super simple to prepare!
My husband is an absolute nut for breakfast foods.
I mean, I eat a little breakfast each day. Sometimes an avocado drizzled with Cholula. Sometimes a scrambled egg. Sometimes I just drink my coffee and call it good.
I think the avocado with Cholula is my favorite low carb breakfast of all time, though. It’s so good!
Anyway, I’m getting off track!
I eat a super simple breakfast through the week, but on the weekends the husband is home and he wants a MEAL.
He’s happy to cook it himself, but I like to play the loving wife and make him bacon and eggs and all the other good breakfast food most days.
But, I also like to sleep in and be super lazy, sooooo that’s where this easy breakfast casserole comes into play.

How to make a keto breakfast casserole:
I keep it low carb by cutting any sort of starchy veggies or bread and just sticking to the good stuff: eggs, meat, and cheese!
I’ve used sausage and bacon today, but ham is tasty too! Who doesn’t love pork in the morning?
Start by browning your sausage in a large skillet. Break up the chunks as you go and drain the grease when it is done.
Dice your bacon into bite sized chunks, and cook them fully in a large skillet until they are a little crispy. Drain this grease when it is done.
Crack a dozen eggs into a large mixing bowl and add the milk. You will whisk this together until it is combined well.
Stir in your cooked sausage and bacon. Then add the cheese, onion, pepper, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Still this all together.
Spray your favorite 9×13 baking dish with a non stick spray and pour the egg mixture into it.
Bake this at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes. The eggs will be set and the edges golden brown when it is done.
Let it cool for a few minutes, then slice and serve!
Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole:
This easy breakfast casserole can be made in advance.
Prepare, bake, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Just pop individual servings in the microwave to reheat. It’s even good cold, if you ask me.
Obviously, this means that it makes a fabulous holiday recipe. You know when you have a million people staying at your house over the holidays and you’re just like…ugh. You want me to cook for you AGAIN?
This is perfect for that feeling.
If you’re not watching carbs, this is another of my favorite breakfast casserole recipes.
