Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut broccoli into small pieces and steam in the microwave until it is almost cooked. (You can also use frozen broccoli). Drain the broccoli.
  • When you pierce the broccoli with a fork, it should allow the fork to go in but not all the way through. The broccoli will finish cooking in the oven.
  • Combine cream, softened cream cheese, eggs, and spices in a large mixing bowl. Whisk or blend with a mixer until combined. Some chunks in the batter are ok as they will melt during baking. (Note-- the cream cheese is optional--it makes it super creamy!)
  • Add the broccoli to the cream mixture and stir to combine.
  • Gently stir in the grated cheddar cheese.
  • Pour into a 9x13 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Tips & Tricks for Low Carb Cheesy Broccoli Casserole


This recipe can be made with either fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli.

Frozen broccoli seems to have more moisture once partially cooked. Make sure to drain off the excess water before mixing things up.

Substitutions For Keto Cheesy Broccoli Casserole


This recipe works great with substitutions. You can make it dairy free by substituting non-dairy alternatives. Make sure you choose low carb options and use a program such as Cronometer to calculate your own nutrition facts.

We like to substitute PepperJack Cheese for the Sharp Cheddar from time to time for a different flavor profile.
