How To Build Your Own Low Carb Casseroles
Once you’ve made a few of these low carb casserole dishes, you’ll see how easy it is to create your own custom ones! Here are some ideas for what to put in them:
- Meats – Ground beef and shredded chicken are the most popular, but you can branch out to other proteins, like ground or shredded turkey, sausage (sliced or ground), diced ham, or even seafood. Cook your meats before adding them to low carb casseroles. If you have leftover meat, throwing it into a low carb casserole recipe is a great way to use it up!
- Vegetables – Most keto vegetables can be added to casseroles. The most popular ones are cauliflower rice, tomatoes (omit the watery seedy parts), bell peppers, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, cabbage, and garlic. Like the meats, you’ll want to cook them first, so that your dish doesn’t come out watery. Avoid starchy veggies, such as potatoes, corn, or beans.
- Sauce – The type of sauce you need depends on the flavor profile you are going for. Common sauces include tomato sauce or marinara, alfredo sauce, pesto sauce, or individual ingredients, like sour cream, mustard, and/or mayonnaise.
- Cheese – These are great for topping, but you can also add them inside the casserole. Mozzarella or cheddar cheese are the most common, but all kinds of cheeses from the keto cheese list work, depending on the other flavors in your dish.
- Seasonings – Salt and pepper are the only basics you need, but other seasonings can work well. A great shortcut is to use a pre-made blend, or a homemade one made ahead, like taco seasoning or Italian seasoning.
You can experiment with the best ratios for your low carb casserole mixture, but I have a great starting point for ratios in my customizable chicken bacon ranch casserole recipe.
