Low Carb Breakfast Casserole

Print Friendly

I often make low carb breakfast casseroles. I usually make one on the weekend, and then reheat individual servings throughout the week. Not only does it make an excellent low carb breakfast, but it’s also great for an inexpensive low carb dinner as well. This basically follows the same technique as my other low carb breakfast casserole (here), I just mixed up the flavors to add some variety.

*This picture shows the low carb breakfast I made for my husband on Father’s Day. I made the french toast from a left-over “Jiffy Bun” from Splendid Low Carbing. They are such a neat little trick that you make in the microwave. Check it out here.

Low Carb Breakfast Casserole 2

1 pound ham, cubed (make sure your brand doesn’t have added sugar)

6-8 ounces sliced, fresh mushrooms

8 ounces softened cream cheese

4 pieces thick-cut bacon

8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded

12 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9 X 13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a large skillet, brown ham cubes in a tablespoon of butter. Most ham is pre-cooked, so this only takes a minute. Place ham in bottom of casserole dish. Then brown your mushrooms in the same skillet. This is important to remove the excess water from the mushrooms.  Add mushrooms to the top of ham. Use the same skillet again to crisp your bacon. (Can you tell I hate washing dishes?) While the bacon cooks, evenly distribute cream cheese on top of ham and mushrooms. Add crumbled bacon on top of the cream cheese. Beat eggs thoroughly with some salt, pepper, and a few tablespoons of water or cream. Pour eggs over the other ingredients and top with Monterey jack cheese. Bake for 25-27 minutes, until eggs are set. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes before slicing.

Makes 12 large servings: NET carbs about 1.4 per serving. :)

  1. Could you do this in a crock pot? Just asking b/c my oven broke down, and we are waiting on a new one. In the meantime, this sounds fantastic!!

    1. I really don’t know if this would work in a crock pot. I’ve never tried to cook it that way. Did you try it? If so, did it work for you? That could be nice to put it on at night and wake up to a hot breakfast!
