18 Low Carb Casserole Recipes That Still Deliver On Flavor

Let your oven do all the hard work.

Brooke Greenberg / BuzzFeed

Whether you're fully Keto or just looking to add some low-carb ideas to your dinner roster, casseroles are a great place to start.

They're easy to prep and clean up, the oven does all the hard work, and you'll almost always have leftovers. Below are several of our favorite casserole recipes — all of which are low-carb and Keto-friendly.



1. Keto Casserole With Ground Beef & Broccoli

This comes together quickly thanks to using canned tomato sauce (plus cayenne for heat!) as the base for the ground beef.

2. Chicken Casserole With Asparagus & Mozzarella

Just five minutes of easy prep and then this is ready to go into the oven.

5. Broccoli Chicken Casserole

For extra color and crisp on top, pop the casserole under the broiler for the last few minutes of cooking.

6. Keto Cauliflower Ziti

The cauliflower florets soak up the ground beef and tomato mixture — and the whole thing is topped with three types of cheese.

9. Broccoli & Tuna Casserole

It's easy to reach for chicken or beef with low-carb casseroles — but don't forget about canned tuna! It's often cheaper, can last awhile as a pantry staple, and still packs plenty of protein per serving.

10. Creamy Chicken Casserole With Spinach

This recipe is virtually impossible to mess up. If you can layer things into a bowl, you can make this.

11. Low Carb Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

All the classic elements you love — minus the bun.

12. Easy Ham & Egg Casserole

Feel free to also toss in any vegetables you might have on hand, like tomatoes, spinach, or peppers.

13. Eggplant Lasagna

The trick to avoiding soggy eggplant here is salting the slices about 30 minutes before cooking, then rinsing and drying them. Doing so will draw out excess moisture and allow the eggplant to crisp up (rather than steam) later.

14. Chicken Cauliflower Rice Casserole

This recipe has you rice cauliflower florets in a food processor — but feel free to swap in pre-riced cauliflower to save time. (Trader Joe's makes a great, cheap version!)

15. Jalapeño Shrimp Veggie Bake

If you've never cooked shrimp before, this is a great place to start. They bake in the oven here alongside all the vegetables — and it's basically fool-proof.

16. Stuffed Pepper Bake

This low-carb and Keto-friendly version ditches traditional rice and beans and swaps in a flavorful mixture of ground beef, zucchini, and crushed tomatoes.

17. Bacon & Brussels Sprouts Bake

Try this as a side to your favorite protein — or bulk it up into a main by adding leftover rotisserie chicken.
