Tips for Making Easy Keto Breakfast Casserole
If you’ve made a ham for a special occasion or holiday dinner like Christmas or Resurrection Sunday, you might have some leftover ham to use up. This breakfast casserole will put that leftover ham to great use!
Similar to Thanksgiving, when you make this large turkey and inevitably have some leftover, but aren’t sure what to do with it. It’s often the same situation with ham.
In addition to ham, I also use shredded cheddar cheese, but you can substitute with any cheese that melts easily, like Monterey Jack or Colby. If you don’t have any ham to use, you substitute with sausage or bacon, whichever you have on hand.
I found these sweet little mini red bell peppers at the grocery store and decided to use them in the recipe as well. You can sub with any pepper you like, green, yellow or orange bell pepper, or even jalapeño pepper.
