Keto Inspired Ham Casserole


This keto ham casserole checks all the boxes.  It uses leftover ham.  If you’re doing keto, you probably have all the ingredients.  It’s versatile.  Choose alternative (keto friendly) vegetables.  It is a casserole. So, yeah, it’s easy.

The Skinny on This Ham Casserole:

I chose cauliflower as my main veggie.  Substituting broccoli or asparagus would be delicious as well.  Of course, the nutritional values will be altered.  Just keep any substitutions keto friendly and you’re good to go!  When a recipe calls for spinach or ‘greens’, do you know you can use shredded lettuce as a sub?  Yeah.  You can.  I did and the taste was not compromised.  Never lose a head of lettuce again!

Other Keto Dinner Ideas

Dinner is the end of the day for eating – for most, that is.  And variety in foods is what keeps life interesting.  It’s also what keeps you on your keto journey without frustration.  Give these recipes a try.

  • Keto Stuffed Peppers – I love this recipe!  You can make some keto and some with rice for non-keto eaters.
  • Beer Can Chicken – Nah, it doesn’t contain alcohol!  The moisture created during cooking keeps the chicken extra moist.
  • Keto Crab Cakes – My NUMBER ONE favorite breakfast out there. I love how the feta gets creamy and livens up the tastebuds!

Other Keto Hacks I Love

  • One pot dishes like this one. You can’t go wrong with keto crockpot recipes, casseroles, and one frying pan meals. I hate doing the dishes so these have my name written all over them.
  • Making more than one serving. When I cook, I make a LOT if the recipe works well for that. Some examples of what I make extra of are my Keto Stuffed Chicken Breast with Jalapeno & Cheddar Wrapped in Bacon and my Keto Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites. I throw them in the freezer and take them out when I’m ready. The chickens are raw but assembled and the cheesecakes are ready for consumption.
  • Batch prepping for the week. I also love making up deviled eggs, and mixing up tuna and chicken salad to snack on during the week.
