33 Easy And Wholesome Keto Casseroles

This article has many casseroles and recipes that will provide you with all the nutrition you require in a single, truly brilliant centerpiece baking dish. It is not a coincidence they call them one-pot miracles!

Most of the following keto casseroles can be used as a breakfast, lunch, or dinner meal. Healthy and nutritious, they are bound to become your favorite recipes to make.

So, keep on reading below to discover the next best meals that you can make at home for you and anyone else on a keto diet!

1. Chicken Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

You can substitute beef for the chicken if you prefer, just like in the classic Philly cheesesteak. This iconic sandwich combination, which contains everything but the bread, works well with any of the above.

Boneless chicken thighs are cooked in butter and mixed with vegetables like peppers and mushrooms. Add some garlicky cream cheese, top it with some cheddar and provolone cheese and you’ve got heaven in a casserole (see also ‘23 Simple Vegetarian Casseroles‘)!

This dish is sure to become a family favorite. Just one bite and you’ll understand why. Check out these recipes:

2. Pesto Chicken Casserole With Feta Cheese And Olives

Chicken is probably the king of the keto diet, which is why so many of the recipes have it as their main ingredient. Packing tons of protein (26g per 100g for chicken breast) and with zero carbs, it is the perfect ingredient to combine with sources of fat.

In this keto casserole, good fats come from the olives, the coconut oil or butter, the pesto sauce, as well as the whipping cream used to make it. Of course, feta cheese is added to make this dish simply irresistible.

3. Bacon Burger Casserole

A keto bacon burger casserole tastes exactly as a bacon burger would; the only thing missing is the bun. First, you brown the beef and then add the bacon before putting the rest of the ingredients in to release that juicy fat from the meat products.

4. Tex-Mex Casserole

With this casserole, you will definitely not miss the tortillas. You can taste all the flavors of a taco filling and skip those extra (dare we say unnecessary?) carbs.

Replacing the tortilla with rice cauliflower, like in this recipe not only makes this dish keto but also much lower in calories!

5. Zucchini Pizza Casserole

Zucchini is one of those vegetables that are low in calories but also perfect as a substitute for starch if you are following a keto diet. In the case of a keto pizza, it can be used as a replacement for the pizza dough, and it does so with quite success.

Here is a Zucchini Pizza Casserole With Bacon And Sausage recipe for inspiration.

6. Reuben Casserole

This Reuben casserole is another one of the meal ideas on our list that will make you wonder why you needed the bread all along. Packing only 3g of net carbs per portion, this meal will satisfy your cravings and keep you within your keto limits.

Instead of going for the regular Heinz Ketchup which packs 15g of net carbs in the 3 tbsp needed for this recipe, buy one with low carbs or even make your own with this keto ketchup recipe.

Alternatively, you can use this recipe calling for a Russian dressing or the one with some pastrami sliced added to the “sandwich” ingredients.

7. Vegetarian Breakfast Casserole

Breakfast for vegetarians is made simple. The best thing about this vegetarian breakfast casserole is that it can be sliced and packed if you’re used to having breakfast later in the day, for example, at work.

8. Italian Breakfast Casserole

Cauliflower is a known substitute for flour in the ketogenic diet. It is commonly used as one of the two main components of pizza dough (the other one is cream cheese) or as a bite-sized ingredient in keto casseroles like this Italian Breakfast one.

9. Moussaka Casserole

If moussaka is one of your favorite meals, then skipping it entirely when on a keto diet is simply impossible. Luckily, you can always twist the classic recipe and replace or skip some ingredients and still have moussaka, the keto way!

10. Eyeball Egg Casserole

Are you inviting your keto-dieting friends over for a Halloween lunch or dinner? Then your casserole’s appearance should be just as good as its taste.

For the spooky Halloween casserole, try out this recipe from The Diet Doctor, or just try some simple keto spinach egg casseroles like the one from Butter Yum or this one from Kalyn’s Kitchen.

11. Meatball Casserole

Thankfully, meatballs are extremely keto-friendly, so you can make this meatball casserole recipe and enjoy them with no guilt and certainly no carbs (4g per serving to be precise).

Almond flour substitutes for plain flour, which you can use for any casserole asking for flour.

12. Sloppy Joes Casserole

On a keto diet, the burger buns are a big no, but that doesn’t mean that you have to say goodbye to Sloppy Joes once and for all. This Cheesy Sloppy Joe casserole is the perfect replacement for the traditional Sloppy Joe burger. You’re welcome!

For a skillet version of the Keto Sloppy Joes, try this recipe or try this keto hot dog bun recipe and add the rest of the ingredients in them. 

13. Mushroom Cheeseburger Casserole

Have you ever tried mushrooms with goat cheese? It’s a combination that rocks. And so does this mushroom cheeseburger casserole!

This is one of the easiest casserole meals you can make while on a ketogenic diet, which is why you should save this mushroom cheeseburger casserole recipe right away.

If you don’t like goat cheese, try this recipe with parmesan cheese or this Swiss burger casserole with Swiss cheese and cream cheese.

14. Chili Dog Casserole

Hot dogs (see also ‘13 Best Leftover Hot Dog Recipes‘) are among the most popular street foods worldwide. However, they are not suitable for anyone on a keto diet. But you know what is? This chili dog casserole!

Buy some cocktail-sized or regular-sized hot dog sausages, place them at the bottom of the baking tray, and top them with some cooked ground beef (see also ‘23 Delicious Ground Beef Soup Recipes‘). Add spices and tomatoes to the pan and then pour the mix on top of the hot dogs.

15. Buffalo Chicken Casserole

16. Bacon Shepherd’s Pie

Alternating layers of bacon and beef are then topped with cauliflower mash instead of potato to lower the net carb content.

Easy to make and delicious, this shepherd’s pie might become your new favorite recipe to make and even if you go back to the carbs, you might wish to stick to this recipe indefinitely!

17. Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

While you can add some chicken or shrimp to this recipe, keeping it vegetarian doesn’t make it boring.

If you’ve ever bought a ready-made cauliflower cheese meal from the supermarket, then you know that even when it’s store-bought, it still tastes good, so imagine making your own.

The best part? There’s some vodka too in it if you go with this recipe.
