Cheesy Ham and Asparagus Keto Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Frittatas are a super easy way to feed a lot of people fast. Our keto frittata is one of those non keto, keto recipes, it is naturally keto friendly.  What that means is basically a dish that everyone can eat, even if they aren't following the keto diet. 

The basis for the recipe is beaten eggs.  From there you can add or omit any ingredients you wish.  Try swapping out the asparagus for spinach or mushrooms,  the ham for bacon.  This recipe really can be a blank canvas.

How is a frittata different from quiche?

The only main difference is the lack of crust. If we were to dig deeper into the history and origin of both there would be other differences, however all any of us really care about is whether or not we can eat it.  Without the crust, this low carb breakfast casserole or frittata is one of those lchf recipes that will fit into your keto macros perfectly.  

If you do want a heartier breakfast or something to make on a special occasion, like Christmas morning, there are a lot of low carb crust recipes out there.  We have one that can be found here with this quiche recipe Southwestern Style Keto Quiche. The basis of the low carb, or keto approved crust is almond flour instead of white flour. Most provide a similar crunch and texture when baked.
