Healthy Breakfast Casserole

Everyone has a different interpretation of HEALTHY.  I get that.  Let me tell you why this is one of the best breakfast casseroles for low carb and keto diet followers.

First of all, this dish is made with low carb tortillas, so if you have made it a habit to pick around bready dishes to avoid extra carbohydrates, then you will be thrilled that the tortillas in this recipe are only 3g net carbs each!

Regular tortillas range from 13 to 30 carbohydrates each, so the fact that brands are now making convenience foods that meet our low carb preference is a GAME CHANGER!

BOOYAH!

Also, flavorful meals are hands down the most satisfying and this casserole is filled with tasty ingredients; sausage, egg, and cheese sauce.

Plenty of fat and protein that will keep you full for hours, so you won’t be tempted to snack between meals.

Finally, this is a healthy breakfast that can be enjoyed by the whole family!  Even if the rest of your family are not low carb followers, they’ll enjoy this casserole. Promise!

In fact, I bet they won’t even notice that this meal is anything but delicious!

This casserole can be made in advance, but I would add the cheese sauce right before putting it in the oven.

In addition, ensure the casserole dish is tightly covered to prevent the tortillas from drying out.

Try this rehydration hack if they do get a little hard by taking a pasty brush dipped in water and lightly coat each tortilla.

Healthy Breakfast Casserole | Low Carb Keto-Style

This is the best breakfast casserole recipe for low carb and keto diet followers. Hearty and filling enchilada-style dish with scrambled eggs, sausage rolled in low carb tortillas, then topped with a cheese sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 large eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • CHEESE SAUCE
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot

6 low carb tortillas 

Directions

In a large skillet cook sausage* over medium-high heat, breaking up sausage into small pieces.  Remove from pan and set aside. 

Turn heat to medium and add butter to skillet.  Add eggs seasoned with salt and pepper.  Cook for about a minute or until eggs begin to set on the bottom.  Gently pull the spatula across the pan several times while cooking.  Remove from heat and fold in sausage and 1 cups of cheese sauce.

To prepare cheese sauce, in a small saucepan melt butter on medium heat.  Add onion and saute until fragrant and soft.  Add milk and begin adding cheese one cup at a time.  In a small bowl combine arrowroot with 1 tablespoon of water.  Add to cheese and stir until until all cheese is melted and warm (approximately 5 minutes).

To assemble casserole, add about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of egg mixture in the center of each tortilla and roll.  Place filled tortillas seam side down in a lightly greased baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over tortillas and bake for 20-25 minutes.  Top with diced tomatoes.

Recipe Notes

  • Use your favorite seasoned sausage.  You can also use part bacon and part sausage. 
  • Egg mix is enough for eight.  The photos shows six tortillas in an 8" x 8" baking pan. 
  • I used La Tortilla Factory Low Carb Fajita whole wheat tortillas

    I’m all for trying out different ways to be healthier. I hate diets that remove all of life’s little pleasures, so this one is a winner for me. It does look very tasty.

    This looks incredible Sandra! I see the tortillas you have in your post in my grocery and have a package in my freezer. I bought them, then decided not to eat them right away. I have pretty much eaten no “bready” type thing since doing Keto. It’s amazing how you don’t crave it as much when you haven’t had it in so long. I might feel like I’m cheating when I eat one. LOL I have to try this though for brunch one weekend soon!

      I’m with you! Most times I don’t crave anything bready. I won’t eat low carb tortillas on a regular basis, but once in awhile this is perfect! I’m so glad you are having wonderful success with the Keto diet!! You look so wonderful!

      Yes, totally adaptable to any preference. I like whole wheat, but my husband likes regular tortillas so half and half works out great for us!
