Make Ahead Low Carb Breakfast Casserole

Around here, make ahead breakfast ideas are kind of a big deal.

From oven baked eggs to crustless sausage quiche, I’m the queen of make ahead breakfast.

Because my mantra is this…Coffee first, breakfast second. Let me explain…

Have you seen the t-shirt that says, “Mama needs more coffee”? Well, I’m 99.9 percent sure that shirt was created for me.

Here’s the thing.

Our four year old climbs into bed with us every single night. It’s not like he doesn’t have a perfectly comfy bed in his own room.

I know, I know. It’s my fault. Don’t judge. Or heck, judge if you want. It doesn’t matter, it’s just the facts for now. We are a work in progress.

By my estimation, I haven’t had a proper night’s sleep in, oh, let’s say about seven years. Before his kindergarten aged sister was born. It’s been a while.

So again, repeat after me. Coffee first, breakfast second.

Picture this….Warm, juicy bits of crumbled bacon, vibrant, green broccoli florets and creamy, melty Cheddar cheese.

Is your mouth watering yet? We’re about to make this happen!

Ingredients in low carb breakfast casserole

  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Broccoli florets
  • Shredded cheese
  • Bacon cooked and crumbled
  • Eggs
  • Heavy cream
  • Seasonings – onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, oregano, salt and pepper

How to Make Low Carb Breakfast Casserole with Bacon

This is a great breakfast casserole to make as part of your meal prep.

Here’s how it’s going down:

Step 1: Saute the broccoli

Heat oil in a nonstick pan, then add the broccoli and cook until the broccoli cooks partially and is bright green.

Shortcut: use steamable broccoli from the freezer section and drain to skip this step.

Spread cooked broccoli in the casserole dish and top with shredded cheddar and bacon.

Step 2: Prepare the egg mixture

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs with heavy cream and spices. Gently pour over the broccoli, cheese and bacon.

Step 3: Bake the casserole

Bake the casserole for 15-20 minutes until the eggs are set in the middle and lightly browned on the top. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing into squares.

Refrigerate leftovers. To reheat, microwave for about 30 seconds until just heated through.
