Sausage & Pumpkin Breakfast Keto Casserole


Step 1Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Remove the sausage casing and place the sausage meat on a hot pan greased with a tablespoon of ghee. Break any large pieces with a spatula.

Step 2Cook until the meat is browned from all sides. This will take just 6-8 minutes. Then, use a slotted spoon and transfer the meat in large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Step 3Peel and slice the onion and chop the garlic. Place the onion and garlic in the same pan greased with the remaining ghee and cook over a medium heat until fragrant and lightly browned. This will take about 10 minutes.

Step 4Dice the pumpkin into about 1/2-inch (1 cm) pieces. I used onion pumpkin which doesn't require peeling and the skin gets soft when cooked. Place the pumpkin in the pan with the onion and cook for 8-10 minutes until fork-tender.

Step 5Once the pumpkin is tender, transfer into the bowl with the cooked sausage and add the mustard.

Step 6Add shredded cheddar cheese and mix until well combined. Keep about a third of the shredded cheddar cheese aside for topping.

Step 7Crack the eggs in a bowl and mix with the cream. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 8Place the content of the large mixing bowl in a baking tray. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the cooked sausage meat and pumpkin.

Step 9Top with the remaining cheddar cheese and place in the oven.

Step 10Bake for about 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Just before serving, optionally top with Sriracha sauce and enjoy!
