Egg Casserole is a simple and delicious choice for breakfast. Make it ahead of time to keep things easy and quick in the morning!
Egg Casserole is one of my favorite things to make when I know we’re going to have a busy week. You can make it in advance and heat it up in the morning when you’re ready to eat.

Egg Casserole Ingredients
Eggs – This is egg casserole after all and you’d better believe it calls for a whole lot of eggs!
Milk – We like whole milk, half and half, or heavy cream for this recipe, but reduced fat or even fat free will work in a pinch.
Seasoned salt – You can substitute plain salt in a pinch, but seasoned salt will add more flavor.
Pepper – We only like a little pepper in the recipe, but I usually sprinkle some on top of my own when it’s finished too.
Onion – I like to cheat and buy pre-diced frozen onions!
Sweet pepper – I also cheat and buy pre-diced frozen sweet pepper!
Mushrooms – You can use fresh, canned, or frozen mushrooms for this recipe.
Bacon – Make sure you’re using real bacon, not the weird bacon flavored bits. I like to make bacon in the oven and then keep a freezer bag full for recipes. You could also sub any other meat like ham, baked chicken, or turkey!
Cheese – Our favorite for this egg casserole recipe is a Mexican blend, but you can use whatever your favorite is, or whatever you find on sale.
How Do You Make an Egg Casserole
First, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. I like to use an electric mixer or an immersion blender to get them nice and fluffy.
Then, stir in remaining ingredients, and pour into a casserole dish.
Finally, bake until cooked through.
We like to serve our egg casserole recipe with a cup of bulletproof coffee or keto peppermint mocha made with Omega PowerCreamer. Omega PowerCreamer is a keto compliant coffee creamer that provides high quality fats to your morning coffee!
Is Egg Casserole Healthy
Egg Casserole is healthy – our egg casserole is full of protein from the eggs and meat, it’s got vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants from the vegetables, and it’s got calcium and vitamin D from the cheese and milk.
This egg casserole recipe is also gluten free, keto compliant, and paleo friendly.
Is Egg Casserole Keto
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. The ingredients we use for our egg casserole are high in fat and protein, so yes egg casserole is keto friendly.
What is Keto
Keto refers to the ketogenic diet. A keto diet is low in carbohydrates and high in fats. It causes the body to produce ketones in the liver to be used as energy.
It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc. When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.
Omega PowerCreamer in Your Morning Coffee
Omega PowerCreamer is an easy to use, All-in-1, blendable creamer that gives you the same great benefits of Keto Coffee without the mess and hassle.
PowerCreamer was designed to make it super convenient and great for when you’re on-the-go. Just pour in, blend up, and enjoy. Now in 4 flavors – Original, Vanilla, Cacao, and Cinnamon.
We used the cacao flavored creamer in our Keto Peppermint mocha and it’s made up of just a few simple ingredients: Grassfed Ghee, Organic Coconut Oil, MCT Oil (Medium-Chain Triglycerides), Organic Raw Cacao Powder, Sunflower Lecithin.
More Keto Compliant Recipes
Here’s a fun hint – you can use the Omega PowerCreamers in recipes too. Add the cinnamon, cacao, and vanilla to keto desserts, and use the original blend in place of oils or butter. Or just make lots of fun keto coffees!

Egg Casserole Making Tools
Casserole dish – We used in 8×8.5″ dish. I love one that comes with a cover.
Santuko knife – My favorite knife for cutting vegetables! This knife is the perfect size and shape, handles great, and is super reasonably priced. Also, I just love that it’s fun and colorful!
Stick blender – Possibly the most used gadget in my entire kitchen. The key to making a hand blender useful versus a giant pain in the butt is to rinse it immediately after using. That way you’re never trying to get crusty dried goop out from under the blades.
