  • I don’t understand why your picture of the baking dish shows the eggs unbroken when obviously they should be combined with the cream BEFORE adding the other ingredients… I think that would be confusing for some folks.

    • Hi Kathy, Thank you for your feedback! For some reason your comment ended up on the wrong post – I think you were referring to the Keto Smoked Salmon Breakfast Casserole. I understand your point and can see how that would be confusing. It was a photo mistake that I didn’t catch, and I’ve removed the photo in question so it fits with the directions.

      Update! Made the recipe finally! It was delicious. I always try to make meals that are versatile for me and my non-keto family. I was able to serve this over some rice with a piece of garlic bread for them. Everybody was happy! Thanks for this recipe!

  • 5 stars
    This is delicious! I made my first one last week and I’m making a second casserole right now. It pairs great with a salad and is a wonderful addition to the Atkins plan I’m on now. Love it!

    I made this last night and it was so good! My husband said “you can make this any time – I love this”.

  • Wanting to do some freezer meals – do you agree this probably would be a good one bc of all the dairy?? I’ve heard it separates after being thawed??
    Looks delish!
    Thank you

    • Hi J! You’re right that dairy does separate and become somewhat grainy when thawed. It won’t affect the taste, but it will affect the texture. This one is really heavy on the dairy, so probably not the best choice 🙁 This one is a much better option!

  • 5 stars
    This is the fifth recipe of yours I have made. Your keto mac and cheese, keto pizza, chicken crust pizza, and your chicken parmesan have all been excellent!

  • I’m about to make this recipe. The Parmesan cheese is this the crated kind in the jar or freshly grated block Parmesan?

  • 5 stars
    This was a fabulous recipe. It was easy, fast and very satisfying! I questioned whether the Parmesan cheese used was grated or the jar kind. I used freshly grated, it was the right choice. I also used a bag of frozen broccoli from one of the warehouse stores. I cooked it for 3 minutes cut a corner off and let it drain while continuing to prep. You would have thought it was fresh, brightly colored and slightly crunchy. I will be sharing and eating this recipe again. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    • Hi Teresa, thank you so much for the kind review! (And my apologies – I completely missed your earlier question!) I’m so glad the recipe turned out for you and that you enjoyed it. Thank you again!
