How do you make low carb casseroles?
If just thinking about casseroles brings your mother’s famous green bean or tuna noodle casserole to mind, you should know these one-dish wonders have come a long way.
Casseroles are no longer an excuse to clean out the fridge and somehow pull together an easy, tasty meal in under an hour.
With this roundup of low carb casseroles, you won’t have to waste time re-working your old recipes to fit your new keto lifestyle.
You’ll find low carb casseroles that taste so good even your kids will clean their plates, such as:
- Breakfast casseroles to enjoy anytime
- Chicken casseroles that aren’t boring
- Mexican inspired recipes better than taco night
- Pizza and pasta casseroles for when those cravings strike
- Hearty meat casseroles full of protein
- Tuna-based casseroles to switch things up
- Bonus: Casserole side dishes that also work well on their own
With these 52 low carb recipes, you can make a new casserole every week for an entire year.
You are using casseroles in your keto meal planning, right?
Here’s Why You Should Make At Least One Low Carb Casserole Every Week
Casseroles are a dream if you have a busy lifestyle and still want to stick to a ketogenic diet because:
Casseroles are easy to make, even if you lack cooking skills and are just starting to dip your toes into the low carb cooking pool.
You literally preheat oven, take a bunch of healthy ingredients and dump them into a casserole dish, and then bake away while delicious smells fill your home.
Like Crockpot dishes and Instant Pot recipes, casseroles take zero practice to get right. You can even have your kids help to cut prep time in half.
Casseroles are also ideal for keto meal prep. Because they’re so easy and fast, you could whip up a few different casseroles in one day and have your whole week’s worth of meals ready to go without repeating flavors.
These premade meals will give you one less thing to think about as your week gets crazier.
One pan, less cleanup. Mix, bake, serve, and even store your casserole in the same dish for as little clean up as possible.
And since the bowls of most slow cookers are usually way too big to fit in your fridge, you also save time and cleanup by not having to transfer leftovers into food containers.
Casseroles can be used for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even as a low carb side dish. You can make one for any meal of the day and to suit all sorts of picky palates.
You can sneak lots of healthy ingredients in every bite. Your old casserole recipes have way more carbs, hidden sugars, and questionable ingredients than you may think.
In a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup alone you’ll find health destroyers like[*]:
- Vegetable oil
- Modified food starch
- Wheat flour
- Monosodium glutamate (MSG)
- Soy protein
- Soy lecithin
But every recipe on this list of 52 low carb casseroles uses whole-foods ingredients to help you stay on track with your ketogenic diet and maybe even improve your health.
Now that you know why low carb casseroles should be added to your keto menu planning, up next you’ll find recipes divided into categories so you can quickly make what you’re in the mood for.
Let’s start with breakfast options that also work well if you prefer breakfast for dinner too.

The next low carb casserole recipe perfectly balances each food group to create a well rounded meal.

This next keto recipe switches up breakfast’s traditional egg base with spaghetti squash.
#7: Italian Spaghetti Squash Breakfast Casserole
Before tuning out the idea of a spaghetti squash casserole, this veggie can do wonders for creating a visually appealing dish that’s not just another plain ol’ casserole.
Because this Italian spaghetti squash breakfast casserole calls for sunny side up eggs on top instead of being scrambled and added to the mix, it won’t even resemble a traditional casserole you’re used to.
The next low carb casserole recipe uses a keto staple to its full potential.
#8: Sausage, Cauliflower, and Cheese Keto Breakfast Casserole
In this sausage, cauliflower, and cheese keto casserole recipe, the genius creators layered cauliflower on the bottom of their casserole and then added juicy, seasoned sausage on top.
These two layers were then topped with cheese.
With the help of gravity, everything melts from the top down so typically bland cauliflower gets to soak up all the savory, cheesy flavors.
If you have any sausage left over from this recipe, you can whip up a batch of this next low carb breakfast casserole too.
#9: Sausage and Pepper Keto Casserole Recipe
This sausage and pepper keto casserole only requires a few simple ingredients like eggs, roasted red peppers, cream cheese, and heavy cream.

The next keto casserole recipe works well for weeknights and game days.

The next casserole is also a crowd pleaser.
#4: Taco Chicken Casserole
This taco casserole comes from the same recipe creator as the last one so it’s also gluten-free and low carb.
On top of cauliflower rice, this recipe needs onions, jalapenos, sour cream, salsa, taco seasoning, and shredded cheddar cheese to recreate the same flavors of a chicken taco sans tortilla shells.
The next keto casserole recipe is based on a classic chicken dish.
#5: Chicken Florentine Casserole
If you’re looking for an equally easy and impressive casserole loaded with veggies and creamy cheeses, meet this low carb chicken florentine casserole recipe.
Using simple ingredients, this recipe pumps up the nutrition and micronutrients with additions like mushrooms, spinach, shredded chicken, and three types of cheeses.
The next low carb casserole also takes cues from a popular chicken dish.
#6: Keto Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole
While this keto chicken cordon bleu casserole looks a little different than the dish you’re used to, it still has all the same classic flavors you’re craving — aka, chicken, ham, gouda cheese, parmesan, and more.
It’s also one you can whip up in a snap since it takes just 10 minutes to prep and 25 minutes to cook.
So for 35 minutes of your time, you’ll have a healthy and delicious chicken casserole you can nosh as leftovers for lunch the next day.

The next low carb recipe can also help you ditch takeout while still satisfying your cravings.
#7: Cheesy Chicken Parmesan Casserole
Chicken parmesan all you can think about after work?
Don’t ruin your keto goals with breaded chicken and try this cheesy chicken casserole recipe instead.
With layers of chicken, parmesan, mozzarella, red pepper flakes, bacon, and basil sprinkled on top, you’ll have a close-to-the-real-thing replica without all the extra work or carbs typical of standard chicken parm.
This next low carb casserole recipe shines when the weather gets cooler and warm comfort foods are all you can think about.
#8: Easy Chicken Broccoli Casserole
Popular chicken and broccoli soups can have as much as half of your day’s worth of carbs[*].
Fortunately, you can ditch that version and opt for this easy and tasty chicken broccoli casserole instead.
You’ll only fork over 5.1g of net carbs per serving instead of 10g or more. And you’ll also score 20g of fat and 31.5g of protein in this recipe, making it the better choice on a keto diet.
The next casserole dish is another twist on a classic.
#9: Cheesy Bacon Chicken Caesar Casserole
There’s nothing more low carb/high fat (LCHF) than a chicken caesar salad with bacon.
So it may sound strange to turn this into a casserole, but it’s actually a really creamy, decadent dish that’s more filling than a salad and easier to eat than chewing leaves for 20 minutes.
Packed with spinach, this bacon chicken caesar casserole recipe still provides the fiber and micronutrients that come with eating leafy greens without you needing to live on straight salad.
The next keto casserole recipe turns a popular appetizer into a deliciously satiating meal.
#10: Keto Jalapeno Popper Chicken Casserole
If you love jalapeno poppers, this jalapeno popper chicken casserole recipe will become your new favorite low carb dish.
Combining jalapeno, bacon, chicken, and cheese, this casserole is a potluck favorite everyone will ask you to make again.
And if you have leftover ingredients from this recipe, you can use them in the next cauliflower casserole dish too.
#11: Cauliflower Chicken Au Gratin Casserole with Bacon
When you hear a dish is “au gratin,” you may assume it’s sprinkled with breadcrumbs and therefore not keto-friendly.
But this cauliflower and chicken au gratin casserole with bacon doesn’t have a starch in sight and makes eight cheesy servings so you can feed a family or have lunch and dinner covered for a few days.
The next casserole recipe also gives you plenty of servings for the whole family, and that’s not even its best feature.
#12: Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole
Chicken, bacon, ranch is another popular flavor combination that works just as well in a casserole like this easy casserole recipe.
Not only is it bursting with flavor, it only requires seven simple, whole-food ingredients — like veggies, garlic, and two types of shredded cheese –and just five minutes of prep time.
Maya over at Wholesome Yum, the recipe creator, also gives you two ways to prepare this casserole so you have even more options.
The next recipe requires a few more ingredients but it’s worth it to capture the flavors of this classic chicken dish.
#13: Low Carb Chicken Divan Casserole Recipe
If you’re unfamiliar with chicken divan, traditional recipes call for chicken, almonds, broccoli, and a Mornay sauce, which is made with flour (and not keto safe).
A typical divan recipe clocks in around 21.2g of net carbs, 25.5g of fat, and 30.8g of protein[*].
But this LCHF chicken divan casserole recipe is only 6g of net carbs and 22g of protein per serving.
So whether you’re craving those chicken divan flavors or want to experiment with a flavor profile you’ve never tried before, this low carb casserole should be added to your list of new recipes.
The next chicken casserole also builds on a classic flavor combo.
#14: Low-Carb Pesto Caprese Chicken Casserole
If mushy casseroles aren’t your thing, this keto recipe for low-carb pesto caprese chicken casserole is Instagram worthy and will make all your friends drool.
Instead of chopping or shredding the chicken, it’s left intact while every ingredient layer gets stacked on top of it.
So in your casserole dish, you’ll put down your chicken breast base and then add pesto, spinach, mozzarella, and parmesan cheese sprinkled on top. Tiny cherry tomatoes then fill in the space around the chicken.
The next keto recipe also looks a bit different than most casserole dishes thanks to the zucchini.
#15: Chicken and Zucchini Casserole Recipe
Rather than leave chicken breasts whole, this recipe from Low Carb Yum cubes both chicken and zucchini to create a chunky casserole to help you feel more satisfied with every filling bite.
Lisa also cleverly adds crushed pork rinds to give the dish an extra low carb crunch.
You could replace the chunky zucchini for zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) if you prefer something creamier, however.
And Lisa also created these next two casserole dishes.
#16: Chicken Alfredo Casserole with Broccoli
Without pasta, breaded chicken, or a flour-based sauce, chicken alfredo can be a keto-friendly meal if done correctly.
And that’s exactly what this chicken alfredo casserole with broccoli from Low Carb Yum does. It also ups both the fiber and nutrient profile by adding cauliflower.
Now if you’re looking for casserole dishes with a bit more spice, this next batch of keto recipes is for you.
Mexican Inspired Low Carb Casseroles
Take taco night up a notch with these four mouth-watering Mexican inspired casseroles:
#1: Low Carb Chicken Enchilada Casserole (Two Ways)
Traditional chicken enchiladas made with rolled tortillas are definitely off limits, but this low carb chicken enchilada casserole is 100% safe on keto.
As another alternative low carb option, this green chile chicken enchilada casserole recipe uses roasted zucchinis as the tortilla “shell” so you still have that feeling of slicing into a tender chicken enchilada without all the carbs.
Check out this next low-carb casserole recipe if you want a traditional Mexican dish, minus the enchilada part.
#2: Mexican Chicken Casserole
This low-carb Mexican chicken casserole is as close to an authentic dish as you’ll get without going to a restaurant and staring down a bowl of tortilla chips.
Plus, it only takes 10 minutes of prep time and 15 minutes to cook so you can have this beauty ready any night of the week.
The next low carb casserole is another flavorful alternative to a traditionally carby Mexican dish.
#3: Chile Relleno Casserole
This keto chile relleno casserole recipe uses ground beef, onions, salsa, green chiles, and a mix of spices to create a low carb version of a classic.
Similar to the original, these flavors do need time to melt together.
So you’ll need to set aside about an hour and a half from start to finish to complete this casserole, but it’s certainly worth it since you’ll reap eight servings for your hard work.
The last Mexican-influenced casserole is another that may become a new favorite.
#4: Easy Tamale Pie Casserole
This easy tamale pie casserole recipe only takes 30 minutes, including cook and prep time, so you can have dinner on the table without much sweat.
Using almond flour for the crust gives this casserole a traditional pie feel. Then bold flavors from cilantro, green chiles, cheddar cheese, and a gluten-free enchilada sauce lock in the flavor profile you’re chasing.
But what if you’re craving Italian food?
Low Carb Casseroles for Pizza and Pasta Cravings
These next four recipes give you an easier and way more keto-friendly way to get your pizza and pasta cravings satisfied without guilt:
#1: Low Carb Pizza Casserole (Two Ways)
Skip the time-consuming cauliflower crust and prepare a low carb pizza casserole that only requires five ingredients (including cauliflower) when you’re in the mood for melty cheese, salty pepperoni, and savory marinara sauce.
This second pepperoni pizza casserole recipe also uses cauliflower and makes a great choice for anyone with dairy or gluten sensitivities since it’s free of both.
If you’re over cauliflower this week, the next pizza casserole swaps it out for another low carb veggie.
#2: Low Carb Zucchini Pizza Casserole
This low carb pizza casserole uses zucchini, eggs, shredded cheese, and parmesan to create a crust to build your keto pizza on.
From there, it’s topped with ground beef, more shredded cheese, and pepperoni.
After this bakes, you can cut and serve squares like a slice of Sicilian pizza.
The last pizza casserole on the list actually combines two popular Italian dishes.
#3: Low Carb Chicken Parmesan Pizza Casserole
Hate choosing between chicken parmesan and pepperoni pizza for dinner?
Have both when you make this low carb pizza casserole recipe.
This recipe does require a bit more work than others on this list, but you’re also combining two separate dishes into one amazing casserole (i.e., whole chicken breasts topped with pepperoni pizza).
But if you prefer pasta over pizza, this next casserole dish answers your craving.
#4: Low Carb Spaghetti Squash Casserole
Baking spaghetti squash in this low carb casserole recipe is the perfect swap for a huge bowl of high carb pasta.
Since baking the spaghetti squash removes the excess water typical of squash, you get that classic al dente texture sans all the carbs.
Even better, the entire dish comes together in under an hour and will only cost you 5.5g of net carbs per serving.
After you satisfy those Italian cravings, you’ll also want to prepare for times you’ll need to feed monster-sized hunger with high quality protein.
Protein-Rich Casserole Recipes for Your Inner Carnivore
From cheeseburgers and chili dogs to ham and cheese, these protein-packed casseroles are pure Americana:
#1: Keto Bacon Cheeseburger Casserole
Dead of winter and can’t use your grill?
For a low-carb option you can make indoors (and even bring to tailgates), this keto bacon cheeseburger casserole recipe will make all tummies happy.
You’ll layer your casserole just like you would a regular burger: with ground beef, pickles, mustard, cheese, and bacon. Then everything gets friendly with each other in a casserole dish as it bakes.
But if a specific fast-food cheeseburger is calling your name, skip the drive-thru and make this next casserole recipe.
#2: Low Carb Gluten-Free Big Mac Casserole
Kyndra over at Peace Love and Low Carb didn’t cut any corners when it comes to her low carb Big Mac casserole that also happens to be gluten-free.
You’ll find her own low-carb version of McDonald’s special sauce, pickles, and sesame seeds just like you would with the real thing.
She then adds this casserole mixture right over lettuce to create a Big Mac salad filled with real ingredients that won’t wreck your health.
Kyndra also happens to be the creator of this next casserole dish.
#3: Low Carb Three Cheese Ham and Broccoli Casserole
Similar to the Big Mac casserole, this low-carb three cheese ham and broccoli one will be a hit with both spouses and kids alike.
Reminiscent of a ham and cheese sandwich paired with a bowl of broccoli and cheddar soup, you’ll have the same comforting flavors without needing a nap afterwards.
The next three casserole recipes drop the ground beef and ham for sausages and hot dogs.
#4: Low-Carb Sauerkraut Sausage Casserole
Despite this low-carb sauerkraut sausage casserole baking in a casserole dish, it looks nothing like a traditional one.
Martina of KetoDiet layers sauteed onions, peppers, and cabbage to create a nutritious pillow for the sausage to sit on.
From start to finish this low carb casserole takes less than an hour to make so it’s doable even during busy weeknights.
The next casserole also calls for sausage and cabbage — but the looks and flavors are completely different.
#5: Cheesy Smoked Sausage and Cabbage Casserole
Need another way to use the smoked sausage and cabbage you bought?
This cheesy low-carb casserole recipe, which resembles an Italian dish more than it does your typical sauerkraut and brats, will help you use up what you bought.
With peppers, garlic, tomatoes, mozzarella, and parsley, this casserole delivers mighty flavors for just 8g of net carbs per serving.
And unlike the last sausage recipe, this one is more aligned with typical casseroles in both setup and appearance, which is also true for this next casserole.
#6: Keto Chili Dog Pot Pie Casserole
You don’t have to wait for the fair to roll into town to nosh on chili dogs (sans buns) in keto.
This low-carb keto chili dog pot pie casserole recipe gives you the same taste you grew up with while staying in your low carb macros.
This recipe also calls for using grass-fed beef hot dogs so you’ll avoid the added hormones, nitrates, and other preservatives in most traditional hot dogs too.
And you’ll find the same cheesy characteristics of this dish, without sausages or hot dogs, in the next low carb casserole.
#7: Easy Lazy Cabbage Roll Casserole
Cabbage is a low-carb cruciferous veggie — similar to brussels sprouts, zucchini, and bok choy — so it has antioxidants like vitamin C and K which can support your immune system, bone health, and metabolic function, just to name a few.
Because of this, it only makes sense to include cabbage in your weekly keto meal rotation.
And one of the best ways is by making cabbage rolls, which use steamed cabbage leaves to wrap and hold ground meat and veggies together like mini burritos.
If you’ve ever tried to make cabbage rolls, you know just how time consuming they can be.
Fortunately, this easy lazy cabbage roll casserole recipe doesn’t require hours in the kitchen rolling cabbage leaves — and you also don’t have to worry about them falling apart before you serve and eat them.
Just add all the ingredients to your casserole dish, bake, and you’ll have your very own cabbage roll flavor minus all the tedious effort.
And this isn’t the only way you can add more cabbage to your diet…
Casseroles to Help You Rethink Your Stance on Tuna
If tuna “sandwiches” and adding mayo to tuna are about as far as you’ve been with this ridiculously affordable fish, the next two recipes will help you break out of your fish rut:
#1: Cabbage Noodle Tuna Casserole
With heavy cream, parmesan cheese, peas, herbs, and spices, you and your family may not even notice protein-rich tuna hiding in this gluten-free low carb cabbage noodle casserole.
What you will have is a creamy alfredo alternative that happens to keep you full and satiated.
The toasted parmesan layer on top also gives this casserole that authentic mac and cheese feel despite the lack of carbs and empty calories.
As for the next tuna casserole, it’s not as popular in the states but it may quickly get there since it’s cheesy and delicious.
#2: Keto Tuna Mornay
Don’t let the fancy name intimidate you.
Tuna mornay is a typical Australian dish that’s essentially a slow cooked stew. But as the recipe creators put it, it’s really just a tuna casserole.
Before you turn away at the thought of tuna in your casserole, you may not even realize it’s in there.
Thanks to a creamy keto cheese layer on top, the tuna takes a backseat when it comes to flavor. So you get all the benefits of healthy fats without even tasting where they come from (i.e., the tuna).
You’ll also find a cruciferous base of broccoli or cauliflower in the recipe which helps to up the micronutrient profile.
Give this keto tuna mornay casserole a try to expand your taste buds and you may never look at a can of tuna the same way ever again.
Up next, you’ll find a few easy keto-friendly sides you can make using a casserole dish.
Bonus: 9 Casseroles that Work Well as Filling Side Dishes Too
These side dishes are so delectable they may steal the show as your main meal takes a backseat:
#1: Cheesy Bacon Brussels Sprouts Casserole
Brussels sprouts are loaded with healthy fiber so they make an excellent addition to any meal when you’re talking about nutrition.
This cheesy bacon brussel sprouts casserole can be whipped up in under 15 minutes and only takes about 30 minutes to cook.
One serving is 14.2g of protein, 27.3g of fat, and only 6g of net carbs so it’s pretty filling and satisfying for a side dish.
The next side dish casserole recipe also shares a similar macronutrient breakdown.
#2: Cheesy ‘Potato’ Casserole
Instead of making a potato casserole that kicks you out of ketosis, you can enjoy this cheesy knockoff that cleverly uses daikon radishes to cut the carb count.
You’ll have all the same creamy goodness of loaded potatoes without giving your blood sugar a spike.
The next casserole dish is another amazing low-carb alternative to carby spuds.
#3: Loaded Cauliflower Casserole
Loaded baked potatoes or potato skins calling your name?
Don’t spoil your ketosis goals with the real thing and use this cauliflower casserole recipe with cheese and bacon next time you’re in the mood for this classic appetizer or side.
You can even add chicken or double the bacon to turn this into a main dish that’s both comforting and filling.
And if you want to take this party even further, the next recipe is a creamier, more indulgent version.
#4: Loaded Creamy Cauliflower Casserole
This loaded cauliflower casserole uses sour cream and cheddar cheese like the last recipe, but it also throws in half a cup of mascarpone cheese for an extra layer of creamy goodness.
By adding mascarpone, you’ll have a much closer-to-the-real-thing texture that’s as smooth and delicious as creamy mashed potatoes.
The next casserole side dish also transforms a carb-packed classic into one that’s safe for keto dieters.
#5: Bacon Green Bean Casserole
For most of us, green bean casseroles are how we were introduced to these oven baked delights known as casseroles.
But as mentioned earlier, the original version is not only bad on keto, it’s bad for your health due to all the artificial preservatives hiding in the Campbell’s Mushroom Soup can.
Ditch the old recipe for this low-carb bacon green bean casserole and you’ll never miss the original ever again.
This recipe is a serious upgrade to the wet, soupy casseroles of your past because it adds crunchy pork rinds to replace those supposed-to-be crispy fried onions.
Not only will this give you a better texture, it also adds protein without upping the carbs.
The next two casserole dishes are also a healthier twist on an old family classic.
#6: Mock Low Carb Sweet Potato Casserole with Pecans (Two Ways)
Sweet potatoes are another side dish many people are sad to say goodbye to when they transition to a ketogenic diet.
And while you won’t find any in these two mock sweet potato casserole recipes, you’ll realize soon enough that you don’t need them anyway.
In both recipes, the “mock” sweet potatoes part is achieved by combining cauliflower and mashed pumpkin, plus a few sweeteners.
With the same fall seasonings you’d use on your sweet potatoes (like cinnamon), these low-carb casseroles will have your friends confused with the nearly identical flavors.
So if you’re craving sweet potatoes, try Keto Connect’s version which also comes with a pecan cinnamon sauce.
And if you want sweet potato pie, this second option from Low Carb Yum is just as creamy and tasty as the first, but has a delicious, crunchy pecan topping.
These two sweet potato casseroles won’t work well as full meals but they certainly make impressive side dishes any night of the week or for holidays like Thanksgiving.
The next casserole shares these traits and it’s also exploding with fall flavors.
#7: Savory Pumpkin Casserole Recipe
Pumpkin doesn’t always have to be sweet; leave this gourd as is and make this savory pumpkin casserole dish to experience both sides of pumpkin during the fall.
With herbs like rosemary, sage, and thyme, and cheeses like parmesan and ricotta, this creamy dish is reminiscent of autumn without the usual flavors like cinnamon and nutmeg.
It’s perfect if you’re over the pumpkin spice-everything obsession typical of the season but still want a warm, comforting dish when cooler temperatures hit.
The next two casserole side dishes pair bacon with healthy veggies — how can you say no to that?
#8: Brussels Sprouts Casserole Au Gratin With Bacon
If you weren’t into brussels sprouts as a kid, this au gratin casserole with cheesy bacon goodness will change your mind.
Snag all the essential micronutrients from the brussels sprouts in this side dish and you’ll only need to budget 15g of fat, 8g of protein, and 5g of net carbs to work it in your day.
And finally, the last of our low carb casseroles uses a veggie you may not have on your standard keto shopping list.
#9: Keto Bacon and Leek Cauliflower Casserole
Try this keto bacon and leek cauliflower casserole recipe if you have a head of cauliflower you need to use and want to add leeks and bacon to flavor it.
Instead of the cheese in this recipe being mixed in, it’s used as a creamy layer to cover your whole casserole.
Because this recipe is so filling, you could turn it into a full meal if you wanted, or even add protein like chicken to make it for a crowd.
As a side, the flavors work well with everything from steak and chicken to fish.
