Keto Breakfast Bake
Mornings can be a bit of a tough and chaotic time in everyone’s home. If you stop and think about everything that happens at that time, it can be downright tiring! From getting ready for school (or homeschool like us) or work to getting everyone dressed and ready and then making certain that you’re finding a way to get something healthy in everyone’s tummy…that’s a lot to handle at once!
This is why I love this low carb breakfast bake so much. First, it keeps us on track with our healthy lifestyle while filling our bodies with great fuel so that we aren’t hungry for a while. I can make this ahead of time the night before and pop it in the oven to bake in the morning so that it is ready when my hubby and kids come downstairs for breakfast.
This Keto Breakfast Bake is one of my new breakfast favorites. Any time that I can plan and get a bit of a “jump-start” on my day, I’m in 100%. Plus, it’s nice to start the day with a low carb option that is only one carb per serving.

You seriously won’t believe how simple this low carb breakfast bake is to make. It comes together so quickly. Create and bake whenever you want! (or can)
It’s smart to utilize any extra time at night and meal-plan breakfast for the next few days with ease. The idea for this casserole came about when I realized I had an entire pound of deli ham that we had forgotten to eat. Since I don’t like to waste food, my wheels immediately began turning for a quick and delicious keto friendly breakfast casserole. You could also change it up and personalize to your personal preferences. A couple of ideas that come to mind is adding bacon or sausage instead of ham and throwing in a little-diced onion and spinach. There are so many possibilities!
Quick Tips to Make Low Carb Breakfast Bake with Ham, Eggs, and Cheese
I used either smoked or Black Forest ham from the deli. Then, I sliced it along with 1/2 of a bell pepper and fried them both in butter.
After pouring the egg mixture on top and sprinkling the cheese, I gave the ingredients a little stir to make sure that the ham was covered.
This keto breakfast bake makes a generous portion per serving. Depending on the size of your family this keto breakfast casserole may last for several days. And if there is more than you feel that you can consume, consider freezing n portions for later use!
