I’ve been Missing in Action for the past two weeks. My brother-in-law passed away unexpectedly and cooking has been the last thing on my mind. Eating however, has continued thanks to the wonderful people of the community of San Clemente, California. The San Clemente Sunrise Rotary and the neighbors in their Flora Vista community have kept meals on our table round the clock the entire two weeks. I have never been more thankful or humbled. The generosity and outpouring of support has been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I am so very grateful.
Very grateful and now 6 pounds heavier, LOL! They’ve brought so much comfort food, and what is comfort food typically made up of? Carbs…a Keto dieter’s biggest FOE! So, it’s time for this girl, who LOVES to eat, to get back on track.
Cheesy Green Chile Keto Breakfast Casserole
- 8 Large Eggs
- 6 oz Trader Joe’s (or any brand) Shredded Swiss & Gruyère
- 8 oz Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
- 1 – 4 oz Can Mild Diced Green Chiles (Ortega or any brand)
- 2 TBLS Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour
- 1/2 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- Freshly Ground Sea Salt & Pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350° F, and butter the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 glass baking pan.
Using a whisk. combine 1/2 of your whipping cream with the flour in a large mixing bowl to make a thick paste, then whisk in the rest of your cream and your eggs and set aside.
Combine your cheeses and put about 1 Cup of it into the bottom of your buttered pan.
Evenly distribute the diced green chiles over the top of the cheese layer.
Give the egg mixture another quick whisk and pour over the top of the chile & cheese in the pan, then sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the eggs are set in the center. Mine took about 29 minutes.
Allow the casserole to set about 5 minutes after removing from the oven then cut into 12 pieces. Serve as is or top with salsa and/or sour cream and chopped green onion or chives if desired. #ThisGirlLovesToEat
