This cheesy, creamy, and savory keto Brussel sprouts casserole is filling and can either be a side dish or the main course.
Easy Brussel Sprouts Casserole
When it comes to vegetables, Brussel sprouts are not high in very many people’s lists. I get it – they taste like tiny cabbages. They are so healthy and good for you that it’s important to find delicious ways to eat them.
In 1/2 cup of Brussel sprouts, there are 4g net carbs and 137% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K – the nutrient that helps with blood clotting and bone health. It’s also really high in vitamin C which promotes immune health and iron absorption.
So, do your body a favor and try this recipe. The savory and creamy sauce is so delicious you won’t even be able to tell that you are eating little bites of Brussel sprouts!
Best Keto Brussel Sprouts Casserole
If you are going to make just one recipe with Brussel sprouts, make this one! This casserole has more than just the small round veggies. Sliced mushrooms and onions are covered in a creamy garlic butter sauce.
Then, you add some salty bacon and top it all with crunchy pork rind crumbs and grated parmesan cheese. This casserole tastes so rich and has lots of interesting textures that keep you from feeling bored.
Since this is made with a cream-based sauce, I suggest eating leftovers within 3 days. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Heat it back up and the sauce and cheese should all melt again.
How To Bake Brussel Sprouts
There are lots of different ways to bake Brussel sprouts – but this casserole is one of my favorites! All the details are in the printable recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Whenever you follow any of my recipes, I hope you find new ways to change each recipe and make it how you like it. I always leave room for customizing them. For example, with this recipe,
I suggest slicing the Brussel sprouts in half. I noticed that doing that made them cook faster and made the texture more enjoyable. You really don’t have to slice them, you can just add them whole.
You can also make it spicier too. Since this is a creamy recipe, I suggest using red pepper flakes to add some heat.
The best spices for brussels sprouts are going to be earthy-sweet ones. I used ground thyme, salt, and pepper. For a lot more flavor, throw in some sage, parsley, basil, oregano, or rosemary.
Are Brussel Sprouts Keto
Yes, Brussel sprouts are keto-friendly vegetables. The reason I used them in a casserole is that the fiber from the other veggies brings down the overall net carbs. You see, 1/2 cup of Brussel sprouts have about 4g net carbs.
You can bring that number lower by eating fewer of them and adding lots of low-carb veggies to the recipe.
Brussel Sprouts Casserole With Bacon
This keto casserole can either be a really filling side dish or the main course. If you want to turn it into your entire meal, just add some shredded rotisserie chicken or leftover turkey.
