Looking for a quick and easy way to meal prep your breakfast for the week? This casserole is so simple to put together and you can eat it throughout the week or freeze leftovers.
What I love about this casserole is it uses ingredients that you might have leftover from the night before. I used Italian sausage that I had leftover from making my Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza Pie last night and added a few more ingredients that I had on hand.
You can use just about anything in this casserole like mushrooms, spinach, chorizo, ham or bacon. The possibilities are endless! Feel free to change things up and use what you have, just be sure to adjust the macros accordingly.

Keto Breakfast Casserole FAQs
Can I freeze leftover Keto breakfast casserole? This recipes freezes beautifully. Just portion it out and place it in individual freezer safe containers. When your ready to serve, thaw in the fridge over night, then reheat in the oven on 350F or you can even reheat it in the microwave.
Do I have to precook the meat before adding it to this low carb casserole? It is recommended that you use precooked meat in this recipe because the eggs cook rather quickly in the oven.
Can I add more vegetables to this casserole? This is a very versatile Keto casserole recipe. You can add most any low moisture vegetable you’d like. Great choices would be mushrooms, fresh spinach, blanched kale, or any peppers you prefer.
Can I make up this breakfast casserole the night before? You have a couple of choices here. You can cook the sausage, chop the peppers and shred the cheese the night before then the next morning just mix up the eggs and spices and bake. Or, because this casserole is excellent for reheating, you can cook the casserole the night before then reheat it in serving sizes.
