Sausage egg casserole without bread is a simple dish that can make a weeks worth of keto breakfasts at once. Just reheat a square serving for quick morning meals on the go.
Casseroles are favorites of mine because they make enough to eat leftovers for several days. For my low carb breakfasts this week, I made a sausage egg and cheese casserole without bread. It’s an easy sausage egg bake that can be reheated for quick breakfasts all week. Other easy favorites include my bacon egg and cheese muffins or the broccoli bake.
The low carb breakfast casserole comes together quickly. It’s a nice egg and sausage casserole without bread which is unlike many of the higher carb recipes.
You’ll love the taste and the convenience of making an entire week’s worth of breakfast at once. And, the slices freeze well too so you can have individual servings in the freezer for later. You can even make the casserole the night before and bake it the next day. It’s perfect for guests on Christmas morning!
How to make an egg sausage breakfast casserole
Either ground sausage or links can be used in the recipe. It’s just a matter of preference or what you happen to have on hand. You’ll just want to brown the sausage first.
The eggs and low carb milk are whisked together with salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Then, a thin layer is poured into the bottom of a greased 8×8-inch baking pan. The sausage is added next and then the shredded cheese. Finally, the rest of the egg mixture is added over top.
The sausage and egg casserole is then baked until brown on top. I bake at 350°F for about 20 to 30 minutes.
I used a half dozen large eggs in this low carb egg casserole. It was just the right amount to fit into a square 8×8-inch baking pan.
Although I chopped up sausage links, you can use a bulk sausage so yo won’t have to chop up the links. I often make this with ground venison breakfast sausage made at our local butcher shop.
I only put sausage and cheese in the dish along with coconut milk to keep the carbs low. But there are a lot of other low carb ingredients that could be added like mushrooms, broccoli, crumbled bacon, onions, and hot sauce.
Feel free to change up this yummy breakfast casserole to your liking. In fact, you can even omit the sausage and cheese and add in vegetables to make it a meatless paleo friendly meal.
There’s really no right or wrong way to make the casserole. It’s also a great way to get rid of dinner leftovers because you can just add them right in. I often do that with extra vegetables from the day before.
Anything that you’d add into an omelette or quiche works well in this breakfast casserole. And, it’s a great dish to eat for lunch and dinner too.
If you want to make up a larger batch, just double the recipe and cook the low carb egg casserole in a 9×13-inch baking pan. You’ll have plenty to share with the rest of the family that way.
An Easy Keto Breakfast Idea
If you’re always on the run or work a lot of hours like I used to, you’ll love the simplicity of this low carb egg casserole. It’s one of my favorite dishes to make up on the weekend then enjoy all week long.
This recipe is so easy, I felt a little silly posting it. It’s basically just a big omelette mixture dumped into a pan and baked. But, since it’s a recipe I rely on, I wanted to share it with all of you.
I hope you enjoy this delicious breakfast casserole as much as I do. It’s a great dish to make ahead and enjoy for any meal during the week.
Crock Pot Option
This easy egg and sausage casserole is also a nice dish to make for brunch. You can even slow cook it in a casserole crock pot which will also keep it warm while serving.
The 9×13 crock for my slow cooker is also oven safe. So, I can brown up the cheese with the broiler after it’s done cooking if needed.
