This Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole is a super easy low-carb side dish that is a perfect accompaniment to any main course entree. Or, it can be the main course itself if you’re living a vegetarian lifestyle.
I’m trying to do more and more low-carb cooking since it’s the eating plan my family and I have decided to implement in our busy lifestyle.
Because of that, I’ve developed this recipe for Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole which has an incredibly cheesy flavor, and it’s deliciously satisfying and satiating.
The ingredient list for making Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole is as follows;
- 3 eggs
- 8-ounce cream cheese
- ½ cup cottage cheese (full fat)

The step by step instructions for making Keto Creamed Spinach Casserole comes next;
In a large saute pan saute minced shallots in melted butter. Add the baby spinach leaves and stir well. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes. Add the diced roasted red peppers to the pan and cover and cook for an additional 3 minutes on medium heat.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, heavy cream, cream cheese, cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg.
Add the egg and cheese mixture into the skillet with the spinach and roasted red pepper and remove from the heat.
