Individual Breakfast Casseroles
by , Updated April 5, 2017
These breakfast casseroles are not only easy and convenient, they're low-carb. The eggs are baked with sausage, diced tomatoes, and cheese. The single-serve casseroles are similar to shirred eggs, but made heartier with the sausage. Add bacon or ham instead of sausage if you'd like. This recipe makes enough for four people, but it's easily scaled up or down.
