🥘 Keto Sausage Egg Casserole Ingredients
A wonderful recipe that allows you to customize this breakfast casserole to your tastes, whether you're changing up the protein type or the veggies.
- Eggs - Large eggs
- Sour cream - Easily swap sour cream for greek yogurt.
- Heavy whipping cream - Half and half and whole milk will work in place of heavy cream.
- Salt and Black pepper - Simple seasonings let the bolder ingredients speak for themselves. Adding garlic powder would be a tasty addition.
- Pork sausage (like Jimmy Dean) - Use a nice ground breakfast sausage and avoid sausage patties or links
- Yellow onion - A nice medium-sized onion will do. If you like less onion flavor, use a small onion or a quarter to a half of a medium onion.
- Green and Red bell pepper - Bell peppers don't contain a ton of flavor so feel free to use any color! Other pepper options for spice are diced jalapenos or habaneros. For a mild flavor, an anaheim or poblano pepper is a great option.
- Shredded sharp cheddar cheese (shredded from a block) - Shredded cheddar cheese from a block will give you a really nice melty cheese. Prepackaged shredded cheese uses anti-caking agents that can leave your melted cheese grainy and less creamy.
** Please see the recipe card at the bottom of the post for the exact quantities **
- More greens: Add fresh spinach, green onions, or fresh parsley to your egg mixture before pouring over the sausage mixture.
- Veggies: Mushrooms and roasted tomatoes are also yummy to add, but can also be used in place of peppers.
- Different cheeses: Cheddar cheese is delicious, but so many other cheeses offer other levels of flavors you'll love. Try a blend of pepper jack, Monterey jack, Swiss, Gruyere, or a rich smoked gouda.
- Dinner Egg & Sausage Casserole: Breakfast for dinner can happen more often than not, swap out breakfast sausage for a spicy or mild Italian sausage. Other meat options include cooked bacon, ham, or ground beef.
- A large skillet for sauteing
- A 9x9 or 7x11 baking dish

Add the meat and vegetable mixture to the greased pan. Top with shredded cheese.
Combine the eggs, sour cream, heavy whipping cream, and salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Beat with a whisk until combined. Pour the egg mixture over the top of the cooked sausage and veggies.
Bake the egg breakfast casserole in the preheated oven for 35-40+ minutes or until the edges of the casserole is set and the interior is barely jiggly. Cut into squares. Garnish with sliced green onions.
