Breakfast casserole is a whole big thing in my house! Probably because my husband is straight up obsessed with breakfast. 

I like a good breakfast casserole because they’re usually easy to whip up and can often be made the night before.

He likes breakfast casseroles because they’re usually full of things like ham, sausage, and bacon. The man loves him some pork products. 😉 

This breakfast casserole with ham is super simple to toss together and tastes amazing. We serve it up on the regular and I bet you will too!

How to make low carb breakfast casserole: 

First up, we’re going to add a dozen eggs to a large mixing bowl along with some heavy cream or milk, depending on your preferences. I like to add in a couple dashes of hot sauce too.

Whisk that all up.

Dump in some diced ham, fried and crumbled bacon, some minced onion, and diced green chiles. You’ll also want a couple handfuls of grated cheddar and a little salt and pepper.

Stir everything up to combine and then pour the mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish.

This will bake up in a hot oven in just about 35-40 minutes. The edges should start turning a little brown and the center should be set. 

We like to serve this with a dollop of sour cream and some chopped green onions. This restaurant style salsa also makes a great topping!

    Thanks for the recipe. I have never tried casserole before, but after seeing the pictures here, I can’t wait to try it. I don’t it how it’ll taste, but I am definitely gonna try it.

    Casserole sounds great! Can you make this the day before and cook it in the morning?

  4. First, thank you for posting the amazing recipe. I want to use 2 eggs instead of using 12 eggs. So please tell me the recipes

      You’ll have to adjust the recipe down. Divide by 6 and you should have your amounts. Divide by 4 for 3 eggs, 3 for 4 eggs, etc.
