The cheesy and veggie loaded breakfast casserole

Ingredients needed

The Ingredients to make this casserole is simple and use keto pantry staples and refrigerator basics. Here is what you’ll need:

Cauliflower- Frozen cauliflower that has been lightly steamed and pat dry. This ensures to extra moisture gets into the casserole. Fresh cauliflower works, but I prefer the convenience of the frozen kind.

Bell peppers- Red and green bell peppers.

Onions- Chopped finely.

Sausage- I used ground Italian sausage, but any sausage works, like turkey sausage.

Eggs- For a higher protein casserole, you can use a mix of whole eggs and egg whites.

Cottage cheese- Adds creaminess and richness to the casserole, without excess calories. Opt for full fat cottage cheese, which contains fewer carbs than low fat or fat free varieties.

Cheddar cheese- Shredded cheese to mix through and on top of the casserole.

Salt and pepper- To taste.
