I’m not one of those sleep late people that only gets up early and makes breakfast on Christmas morning. No, I’ve always been a morning person. Mornings are the best part of the day in my opinion and I’m most productive in the a.m.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I love breakfast. And, I love a good, quick breakfast casserole. This casserole is ready for the oven in 10 minutes, is packed with protein, and is always a crowd-pleaser. Another reason I like it, this recipe is keto-friendly. In short, it’s low-carb.

    This sounds delicious and I really like the idea of adding some chicken so can you tell me how much chicken you might add to this? And would you chop it or shred it?

  2. 5 stars
    This is great! I just started a keto type diet, this is perfect! I keep the left overs in the fridge and heat themup just for me.
