Ingredients

  • 12 large Eggs, Beaten
  • 1/2 Cup Half and Half
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Pepper
  • 2 cups Shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (Click here for my favorite brand on Amazon)

Instructions

Notes

  1. You can easily double this recipe and use a 9 x 13 casserole dish.  Bake for 45 minutes or until set.
  2. You can definitely use heavy cream instead of half and half if you want a lower carb count.
  3. You can add cooked sausage or crumbled bacon into the casserole.  I would use 1/2 pound of sausage cooked and crumbled, or 6 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled.  Add it to the egg mixture with the mushrooms and spinach.
  4. To check the low carb breakfast casserole for doneness...insert a butter knife into the middle of the casserole and check to see if the egg is set.
  5. This keto breakfast casserole is perfect for freezing.  You can bake the casserole in a foil pan, let cool, cover with foil and then freeze, or you can bake it, let cool, remove it from the pan, wrap very well in foil, and freeze.
