This breakfast casserole recipe right here is a weekly staple in our house. I make it at least once a week so that we can use it for a quick breakfast or keto meal. Only 4 ingredients and it cooks for 35 minutes. Easy-peasy.
When I first started on keto in July 2018, I wanted foods that were easy to make and would help make it easier for me to maintain this way of eating. This is one recipe that we created at the beginning of that journey that we still make today – weekly. It’s an easy breakfast or breakfast for dinner meal and makes 9 servings. Plus, it’s easy to store and just grab a piece to warm up whenever you need it.
How to make 4-ingredient Breakfast Casserole
Before you start to make this breakfast casserole, you’ll want a good quality 9×9 baking dish, I’ve been using one like this for about 8 years now. It’s a cake pan, but I love it for casseroles so that it is easier to portion out.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I use butter in the skillet and spray for the baking pan.
Spray or butter the baking dish and a skillet. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat and add ground sausage. Cook until no longer pink and layer into the bottom of your baking pan.
Layer cheese on top of the cooked ground sausage.
In a large bowl, crack 9 eggs and add 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Whisk until combined.
Layer egg mixture on top of the ground sausage and cheese.
Place in preheated oven and cook for 30-35 minutes (personally, my oven is just right at 35 minutes).
- 9 Eggs, cracked
- ¼ cup Heavy Cream
- 1 pound Ground Sausage
- 1 cup cheese, shredded
- Salt and pepper to taste
