The two words keto and casserole may at first glance seem to be polar opposites, but let me assure you, they are not. The only magic for keto casseroles is if every item fits the keto criteria, then multiple items combined and cooked together will also fit the keto criteria!

My best tip for making keto casseroles is to keep cooked protein sources handy like diced chicken, ground beef, Italian sausage, or pulled pork.
Keep in mind though, some keto casserole recipes can also be all veggies, and if so, pre-cooking them may be beneficial to avoid the casserole becoming waterlogged.
Most keto-friendly casseroles are a combination of protein, veggie, and healthy fats.
After protein and veggies are picked, several low-carb sauce options will pull keto casserole ideas together like marinara, cheese, pesto, or alfredo.
Or maybe fantastic seasonings will do the trick all on their own!
