Low Carb Sausage Breakfast Casserole is a healthy way to start your morning. It’s made with pork sausage, spinach, eggs, diced tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
I’m starting 2018 off right with a Low Carb Sausage Breakfast Casserole. There is something about a dependable breakfast casserole recipe that can be shared with family and friends around the table or something to take for a shower/brunch gathering. Since I’ve been following a low carb/keto diet for the past few months, it was only fair that my first post is a healthy one.
New Year, New You Right?!
I’ve got about 25 pounds to go before I hit my personal goal weight and a recipe like this one is going to help me get there. It’s packed with pork sausage, eggs, spinach, diced tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. I was even able to prepare it the night before New Year’s so when we woke up all I needed to do was stick the dish in the oven to bake it. The hardest part was making the family wait, so I could take photos of it for all of you. I’d like to say it was family bonding time while mom shot the recipe.
Feel free to make substitutions with this sausage breakfast casserole. You can incorporate your FAVORITE vegetables or swap the mozzarella out with Colby Jack cheese – another favorite of mine. If a casserole is NOT for you then jump to the bottom of this post for more recipe inspiration from A Zesty Bite.
Do you make New Year Resolutions and are you able to keep them? This year my resolutions are family based with a few personal goals for myself.
