How to make the Easy Keto Breakfast Casserole

To get this breakfast casserole started, I first had to sauté my mushrooms and spinach with some garlic.  I sliced 8 ounces of mushrooms and I used a 5 ounce container of baby spinach.  It only took a few minutes to get the mushrooms a little soft and the spinach wilted down.

To get started, slice 8 ounce of mushrooms and take 5 ounce container of baby spinach. Sauté mushrooms and spinach with some garlic. It will take only few minutes to get the spinach wilted down and the mushrooms to be soft. At the same time, cook and drain the bacon too.

Beat the eggs and put half and half and cheese into it, then add cooked mushrooms and spinach into it. I am not adding bacon into the casserole, I will just garnish it on the top instead (you can put cooked and chopped bacon or sausages into the casserole). If I was adding it I would use 6 slices of cooked bacon or half a pound of sausages into the casserole.

Now pour the mixture into a 9×9 greased casserole dish and bake it for half an hour at 375F (or until the center is set).

*you can check it by inserting a butter knife into the center of this keto breakfast casserole.

USEFUL TIPS

  1. You can easily double this recipe and use a 9×13 casserole dish. And bake it for 45 minutes or until set.
  2. You can absolutely use heavy cream as a substitute of half and half if you want a lower carb count.
  3. You can add cooked sausage or crumbled bacon into the casserole.  I would use 1/2 pound of sausage cooked and crumbled, or 6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled.  Add it to the egg mixture with the mushrooms and spinach.
  4. You can check the doneness of casserole by inserting a butter knife into the center of this keto breakfast casserole.
  5. Freezing method: you can bake the casserole in a foil pan then cool it, cover up with foil and then freeze up. Or you can also bake it first then remove it from pan, wrap it firmly with foil and then freeze.
