Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole
Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole has two of my very favorite ingredients in a low-carb breakfast casserole! And this recipe is also Keto and gluten-free.
This favorite Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole is one that I’ve made over and over through the years, and if I was forced to choose only one breakfast casserole out of the many different ones I’ve shared here, this might be the one I’d choose. There’s something about the combination of mushrooms and feta that sounds like a perfect breakfast to me.
This recipe is also a sentimental favorite because back in 2008 I made Low-Carb Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole for breakfast when Genie from The Inadvertent Gardener stopped for a night as she was headed for California. Then last summer Genie stayed at my house again with her husband and son! I think I made this breakfast casserole for her that time, but she did tell me how much she has enjoyed the Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole through the years.
This original recipe for this made 10 servings, and it keeps for at least a week in the fridge, and reheats well. I included the printer-friendly link to that larger version in this updated recipe, but the photos here are for a smaller version of Mushroom and Feta Breakfast Casserole that makes 6 generous servings, and that’s the size I make most often now.

Season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) or other seasoning of your choice and fresh-ground black pepper. (I don’t add salt because Spike Seasoning and Feta both have some salt.)

I like brown Cremini mushrooms for this recipe, but any mushrooms will work; use a few more mushrooms if you'd like. Use heavy cream or milk instead of half and half, or skip it completely, whichever you prefer.If you'd like to make a larger size for this favorite breakfast casserole, Click Here for 10 Servings Size Printer Friendly Recipe.
