Keto Egg Bake – This low carb keto egg bake with sausage, bacon and cheese is great for meal prepping on those busy weeknights, made with just a few ingredients including veggies and fresh herbs.
Keto Egg Bake With Sausage – Important Notes
- I am using sausage but you can use both to make it a delicious keto egg bake with bacon and sausage. Precook the meat and add it to the recipe.
- Instead of cream, you can use half and half
- Add steamed, pan-fry, blanched, or roasted cauliflower and broccoli. But make sure to precook them first and take the moisture out before adding. Cooking time will be slightly increased.
- Instead of broccoli, use spinach and you can also add 1/2 cup sour cream or cream cheese for a delicious keto egg bake with cream cheese.
- For a change, add mushrooms, spinach, ground pork, diced green & red peppers.
- Add a few pieces of cooked and crumbled bacon on top before adding the remaining cheese, see in the recipe card below.
- Add any cheese you have in hand like mozzarella, cheddar cheese, American, Swiss, or Monterey Jack.
- Use a 9×9 inch glass casserole dish for this recipe (recommended), or use an 8×8 or 9×13 casserole dish.
Can I make this low carb egg bake ahead of time?
Yes, absolutely! Follow all the steps except the baking part. Cover and store in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Can I freeze this keto cheesy egg bake?
Yes, you can freeze this up to 3 months without any issues.
When you are ready to bake your keto egg bake with sausage and bacon, thaw it overnight in the fridge. Take it out and let it come to room temperature, then bake in the preheated oven as instructed.
Freeze after baking – Bake the egg cheese bake with sausage as directed and make sure the eggs are fully cooked. Let it completely cool down to room temperature. Cover with plastic wrap, then with foil, and place in the freezer. Or cut the pieces from the casserole and then wrap them separately and freeze.
When ready to eat, unwrap lightly and thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Reheat in the oven until warmed through or use the microwave.
