Easy Keto Egg Bake is the low carb breakfast casserole you need to meal prep your way to a keto low carb lifestyle.
Easy keto egg bake is the perfect low carb Saturday morning brunch recipe! And, it’s about as quick and simple as it gets.
WHAT DO YOU NEED FOR EASY KETO EGG BAKE?
- Salt & Pepper
You can use any combination of these ingredients.
This is a great way to clean out your fridge, too!
Don’t have sausage? Try ham or bacon.
What if you don’t like onions? Try spinach or broccoli.
You don’t have cheddar cheese? Use any kind of cheese you like or have on hand!
The eggs are kind of a non-negotiable… But, I’m with you… Eggs are not my favorite thing to eat.
Chop up whatever you have on hand, and mix it with the egg + cream custard. Pour into a baking dish, and voila! Easy Keto Egg Bake!
However, I can eat them when they are surrounded by lots (and I mean LOTS) of meat, cheese, and veggies.
Easy Keto Egg Bake combines sausage and onions with lots of cheddar cheese and creamy egg custard. Bake it in a pie dish like above, in a muffin tin to meal prep breakfast, or if you just need an easy way to make a LOT of egg sandwiches, bake it on a sheet pan. Either way, you end up with something unbelievably creamy and delicious, filled with protein!
When eating keto, you really need all the protein you can eat.
Easy keto egg bake is a great way to start your day well. I like to make a dish of this on Sunday evenings, and then slice off a portion each morning for breakfast. I don’t have a microwave, so it does take some time to reheat in the oven — but, I get ready, and then eat it right before I walk out the door. It’s a good way to “sit still” for a few minutes before starting a busy, busy day!
If you aren’t familiar with the ketogenic diet, I recommend this fantastic book!
So much information that is essential for fully understanding that eating “keto” isn’t just eating low carb.
It’s eating all the correct macronutrients for YOUR body. <—– Major light bulb moment for me! I wrote, highlighted, and added tabs all over this book.
WHAT IS KETO?
“Keto is a low-carb, high fat, moderate protein lifestyle
The ketogenic diet, or keto, refers to a way of eating that can be described as low-carb, high fat, and moderate protein.
Most people on keto eat less than 20g net carbs each day and get more than 75% of their nutrients from fat (more on this below).
The goal of keto is ketosis
One of the goals of the ketogenic diet is getting into what is called ketosis.
Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body is burning fat for fuel instead of burning carbs and sugar. ” – an excerpt from Dr. Davinahs Eats
You can read more about it from my friend, Dr. Davinah, she has an amazing keto blog, where you will drool over every recipe and learn so much!
