While on a ketogenic diet, we’re usually looking for simple meals that re-create old tastes that we love. A meal that I used to love to take to work was a cheeseburger salad. Practically all of the flavors of a cheeseburger, but crumbled up over lettuce.
However since the cooler weather is here, I wanted to create a heartier dish that can be easily re-heated or served straight to a hungry family as-is. Plus, you may know I love my cold keto food – and this one tastes just as good right out out the fridge for a fast and tasty breakfast!
If you’re one to take part in Meal Prep Sunday, this would be perfect to try. It only takes around 45 minutes to make the entire casserole, and could very easily become part of your weekly rotation. Plus, if you want to multiply the recipe to make a few at a time – it’s very easily done.
