Low Carb Breakfast Casserole

Karly, of BunsInMyOven.com has provided us with a really goood breakfast casserole. Since I’m too sleepy and cranky to do much cooking in the morning and love breakfast for dinner, anyway, I made it for us a couple of nights ago. It’s delicious, got a thumb’s up from my husband, and will be put in our ‘over-and-over-again’ rotation. If you were having guests for breakfast, you could also make it ahead and take it from refrigerator to oven.  My own personal note would be that it would be really good with spinach added or cut up broccoli.

This low carb breakfast casserole is hearty and filling, because it’s packed full of protein from the sausage, bacon, and eggs. Add in any vegetables or meat you like!

Ingredients

1 pound sausage
1 pound bacon
1 dozen eggs
1/2 cup milk
2 cups grated cheddar
1/2 sweet onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 tablespoon Frank’s red hot
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

Brown the sausage in a large skillet, crumbling as it cooks. Drain grease and set aside.
Dice the bacon into bite-sized chunks and cook in a large skillet, stirring often, until crisp. Drain the grease and set aside.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with non-stick spray.
Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and add the milk. Whisk together until well combined.
Stir in the sausage, bacon, cheddar, onion, pepper, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes or until eggs are set and edges are golden brown.
Let cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving.

Recipe Notes

To keep this a bit lower in carbs, swap in 1/4 cup of heavy cream + 1/4 cup of water for the milk. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with chives, as desired.

Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole Recipe

I have won the lottery on a low carb casserole recipe. It’s called, “Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole” and it is from Karly Campbell,  who has a website called Buns in My Oven.

Since I’m always busy and then poop out, energy-wise in the afternoon, not wanting to cook, I did this recipe in stages. In the morning I got the casserole ready to put in the oven, then covered it and put it in the fridge. Then I decided to go ahead and cook it mid afternoon, while I was resting. Then I let it cool a bit and covered it and put it back in the oven. When we were ready to eat several hours later, I put it in the microwave and heated it up to temperature. All of this is hard on a recipe, but this was handled it in style.

My husband’s reactions during and after eating it were –

  • an enthusiastic two thumbs up – saying, ‘Wow. This is great. Are you SURE this is low carb?”
  • “Did I tell you this is really good?”
  • He went back into the kitchen and got himself a second serving
  • Then he said, “This is too good to be low carb. Can we have this every night?”
  • Again – “Did I tell you this was really delicious?”
  • “Can we split the leftover piece for lunch tomorrow and have a salad with it?”
  • “Will you make this again soon? I’ll help.”

My husband is usually encouraging when I cook something he likes, but this was over the top. To say it will become a regular at our house is an understatement. I have now bookmarked marked Buns in My Oven  and signed up for her newsletter. I also bookmarked a page on low carb casseroles and am planning to make her “Oven Spaghetti” soon.
