If you’re on a “get healthy” quest, don’t skip breakfast! You know why? If you start out with a healthy breakfast, you’ll make better choices throughout the day and you won’t be starving by lunch, looking for the nearest drive through. Try this simple keto breakfast casserole for an easy go to meal you can eat all week!
One of the most important things you can do to save not only money, but also precious time is make a meal plan. Sit down on Sunday and plan it out. And don’t forget to include breakfast! This is a great, healthy breakfast option you can make on Sunday and enjoy all week. It’s low carb and packed with veggies and protein! I got a variation of this recipe from a gym friend and modified it a bit – You can add as many different kinds of veggies that you like.
And it’s keto friendly! Tomatoes have carbs that you need to consider, but considering the serving size, it’s keto approved. And if you’re really limiting the carbs on keto, skip the tomatoes all together.
Simple and Delicious Keto Breakfast Casserole
- 1 lb of hot sausage (use turkey sausage if you want)
- 10 large eggs
- 1 container of grape tomatoes
- 2-3 cups of baby spinach
- cheese (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees
- Lightly grease a quiche pan or glass baking dish with butter
- Cook the sausage and drain
- Mix 10 eggs in a large bowl
- Add the spinach and tomatoes to the eggs and pour into the baking dish
- Add the sausage to the egg mixture
- Cook for 25-30 minutes (you can check the eggs with a fork about 25 minutes into cooking)
- Garnish with a small amount of your favorite cheese
Whenever I make this casserole, my hubs and I usually split it throughout the week. You can increase the ingredients and make an even bigger portion if you’re feeding more mouths. Top it with some hot sauce if you’re feeling extra spicy that day. If you prefer, you can use turkey sausage. But, since I find that I don’t need a large portion of this to get full, I don’t mind using the regular sausage.
Seriously – if you want to make good food choices there are no magic pills or quick fixes. Eat a protein packed breakfast and you’re on the way to making smart choices throughout the day. And especially if you exercise in the morning, you need a good source of protein shortly after working out. Your muscles need it!
This one is one of my go-to meals when I’m motivated to stick to my meal plan and eat healthier throughout the week. It’s delicious and keeps me full for hours.
And let’s talk about the cost. I’m budgeting for four people who have to eat three meals a day plus snacks. So I can’t make elaborate meals every day.
- Eggs: $2
- Spinach: $1 (I don’t use a full bag of spinach and the whole bag is around $3)
- Sausage: $4
- Cheese: $1
- Tomatoes: $3
Eleven bucks and we get about 8 servings from this one which breaks down to $1.37 per meal. Not too shabby. I don’t know anywhere you can eat breakfast for $1.37. And the best part is you cook it once and eat all week! Mornings are hectic and I know how easy it is to just skip breakfast. Anything you can do to make it easier on yourself is worth the effort for one day of prepping and cooking!
Enjoy and if you love it, pin it!
