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.
Low Carb Breakfast Casserole
Prep Time 20 minutes Cook Time 35 minutes Total Time 55 mins
Serves 12 adjust servings
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!
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
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.
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.
