These low carb casseroles do what all-in-one dishes do best: get all of the good stuff in there! Most of these recipes are filled with veggies and packed with protein and fat, making them a well-rounded choice for any low carb meal.
Yes, most of them skew keto with higher fat content, so if you’re looking for low carb low fat casseroles, consider skipping (or using less of) the cheese and subbing the heavy cream for lower fat alternatives (unflavored almond milk for example).
Check out each recipe for specific variations and notes (I always include a ton of options for you!). But, as a general rule of thumb…
Here are a few ingredients I use in almost all low carb casseroles:
- Crunchy Topping — Most commonly I’ll use pork rinds as they’re extremely low in carbs and add a PERFECT crunch. Now, wait, before you dismiss it, give it a try. It makes a HUGE different in low carb casseroles!
- Thickening Agent — Traditional casseroles often call for flour to thicken the casserole’s sauce (otherwise they can turn into a liquidy mess). Instead, I’ll often use xanthan gum! It thickens sauces just like flour, and requires significantly less!
- “Noodles” — Veggies make for GREAT replacements!
- Creaminess — Traditional recipes often use milk, or other high carb dairy products. I rely on heavy cream, full-fat coconut milk, and sometimes (for a lighter version), unsweetened almond milk.
- Veggies — You can often add other low carb veggies to these combo dishes, these are great for sneaking in all sorts of good tasting and good-for-you foods!
- Protein — These low carb casseroles can all be made meatless or with various proteins added in. Feel free to swap out the meat for another type.
Casseroles are amazing because they usually only require one pan, and they’re perfect for meal prepping! Plan ahead with airtight containers so you can separate leftovers out into portions for easy, ready to eat meals!
Store in the fridge or freezer, then thaw and reheat in the oven or toaster oven for a healthy, filling meal on the run! (Microwaves work for reheating as well, although they’ll take away some of the “crunch” factor)
These low carb casseroles are here to make your weeknight dinners a breeze. Cheesy, protein-packed, and absolutely delicious, there’s a dish on here for every craving! No need to reach for that high carb version anymore…
