his low carb breakfast casserole will help take your eggs to the next level!
When you follow a low carb, LCHF or ketogenic diet, you find that you end up eating a lot of eggs. Eggs for breakfast. Eggs for lunch. Even eggs for dinner. So you search for creative options to give you some variety with your low carb recipes.
I like to use eggs sausage and cheese to make an easy breakfast casserole or a breakfast strata. Depending on what you add to it, it can work for any meal and really you have a limitless variety of meal options. Plus it serves a lot and is very filling so you can turn it into multiple meals or serve the whole family for a single meal.
Success tip: there is nothing worse than your egg casserole sticking to the pan. You can grease it with butter which is messy. You can use a butter spray or other non-stick spray filled with nasty chemicals.
Or you can get a natural spray that contains nothing but oil – olive oil spray, coconut oil spray, grapeseed oil spray or avocado oil spray. All are healthy fats that will keep your casserole from sticking and add great flavor.
My favorite is the avocado oil. It’s just delicious, but grapeseed oil is yummy too.
For any of the spray oils, make sure they don’t use a propellant, and if you can get organic, that’s the best, but at least aim for non-GMO with the oil, or a blend of oils as the only ingredient. I avoid canola oil altogether because of how much it is processed but canola should always be non-GMO or organic.
