Celebrate World Egg Day with Low-Carb and Keto-Friendly Casseroles

October 9, 2020



Casseroles are life-savers on busy nights. You can whip up a casserole in minutes, making the most of whatever you have in your fridge and pantry, and then you can get back to business (or Netflix) while your casserole cooks to bubbly deliciousness in the oven. Casseroles also re-heat quite nicely for lunch or dinner the next day.

You can assemble most of these casseroles beforehand and refrigerate until ready to cook. Just take your casserole out of the fridge about an hour before baking, and then pop in the oven.

 Some of these casseroles also showcase eggs, just in time to celebrate World Egg Day on October 9! Keep reading for low carb and keto-friendly casserole recipes:

Perfect for Meatless Mondays, this vegetarian casserole features nutrient-packed chard, but you can also substitute kale, and add other veggies you may have on hand, such as sliced mushrooms.

 Easy and Festive Chicken Casserole

Slices of eggplant stand in for noodles in this hearty low carb lasagna recipe. You can make this recipe vegetarian by omitting the ground beef.

Green Chili Turkey Casserole
