A casserole is the perfect time-saver dish. It can provide plenty of “cook once, eat twice, or more!” leftovers, or it can satisfy a hungry crowd. Whatever the case in your home, you’ll love the ease of preparation with this keto sausage breakfast casserole.
Be sure to select sausage that is all-natural with no added sugar or fillers. Jimmy Dean brand makes a certified gluten-free, no sugar added sausage with none of those chemical additives most of us like to avoid. This type of sausage does not have a lot of excess fat/liquid to drain away, so you can brown the sausage and cook the veggies in the same pan. That makes cleanup much easier!
The consistency of this finished dish is on the custard side, with a rich cheddar sauce and just a hint of heat from ground cayenne pepper. If you aren’t a fan of the spice, simply omit it but it adds a nice balance to the dish.
Feel free to change up the type of cheese you use from time to time. In place of cheddar you can substitute Monterrey Jack, Swiss, or even smoked Gouda.
Whatever you decide, in under an hour you can have a bubbling dish on the table that will keep you satisfied for hours.
