How to Make this Breakfast Casserole
Pre-heat oven to 350°F and spray an 8” x 8” casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium heat. Add chopped broccoli florets and 3 Tbsp water. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or just until the broccoli softens slightly and turns bright green.
Remove from heat and transfer broccoli to prepared casserole dish and spread into a uniform layer. Top with shredded cheese and cooked crumbled bacon and set aside.
Whisk the eggs with the heavy cream, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, and oregano. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli, cheddar, and bacon and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the casserole is set and lightly golden brown on top. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

Have you tried these low carb products? I love to get their sampler box. There’s a nice variety of bread, bagels, sweets, and even pasta. At the moment, they only have a few Keto items, but I’m sure they’ll be adding more. I’ve been a customer of theirs for years and enjoy their low carb bread and bagels the most!
