We love the combination of spinach and cheese, especially in this Keto-friendly egg casserole that only has 2 net carbs per serving. Let me show you how easy it is to make.
Start by sautéing baby spinach for a couple of minutes until it wilts.
I’m always amazed how much spinach cooks down.
Now, before we proceed, you MUST spray your casserole dish with nonstick baking spray. Baker’s Joy is my favorite. DON’T SKIP THIS STEP!! If you forgot to spray your dish, the eggs will most definitely stick and you’ll have to chisel them out of the pan. Don’t ask me how I know.
Okay, layer the wilted spinach evenly in the bottom of the sprayed casserole dish, then add the mozzarella cheesier an even layer, and sprinkle the chopped scallions on the top.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and Jane’s Crazy Mixed-Up Salt.
We love this stuff. If you don’t have any, use your favorite salt blend, or just substitute salt and pepper.
Carefully pour the egg mixture over the spinach, cheese, and scallions. Make sure the ingredients are evenly distributed.
Bake for about 30-35 minutes.
Cool for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
