Notes

Tips & Techniques for the Best Keto Breakfast Casserole

  • Start cooking the bacon first, so that it’s ready by the time you need to add it to the casserole.
  • Save time by purchasing already riced cauliflower from the produce department at your local grocery store.
  • It is strongly recommended to shred the cheese from a block rather than using pre-shredded bagged cheese. It will melt much better and doesn’t contain any starches.
  • Store leftover casserole in air-tight containers in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
  • You can freeze this cooked casserole as well. Thaw and reheat within 3 months for best results.

FAQ’s

  • Can you make a Keto Breakfast Casserole with sausage instead of bacon? Yes. Make sure to fully cook and drain your sausage before topping the breakfast casserole with it. Bake as you would when using bacon.
  • Can you make a Keto Breakfast Casserole ahead of time? Yes. You can prepare the casserole ahead of time and keep it tightly covered in the refrigerator until needed. It is recommended to bake the casserole within 24 hours.
