  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Fry the bacon and mushrooms in butter in a skillet over medium-high heat until golden brown. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Place contents of the skillet in a greased baking dish.
  4. Add remaining ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Pour egg mixture over the bacon and mushrooms and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top and set in the middle. Cover with a piece of aluminum foil if the top of the casserole is at risk of burning before it's cooked through.

Tips

For a little color, feel free to add spinach or other greens to the skillet with the bacon and mushroom mixture in step 3, toward the end when almost finished cooking. Sauté for just a minute or two and proceed with the recipe.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.
