Let me introduce my new best low carb friend – the casserole! I know what a struggle it can be to follow your own low carb or gluten-free diet, and feed the family at the same time. Cooking two separate meals, or leaving the high-carb ingredients out of one portion and cooking it on it’s own can discourage even the most dedicated dieter.

Well, this dish covers you on both accounts! Delicious and hearty, the ingredients in Low Carb Smoked Sausage Broccoli Casserole casserole fit any low carb diet to a tee. They also are perfect for a tasty, family size casserole that everyone will love. You may also want to try this tasty low carb family friendly casserole Easy Low Carb Chicken Salsa Verde Casserole.

HOW TO MAKE LOW CARB SMOKED SAUSAGE BROCCOLI CASSEROLE

Most of the best casserole recipes have the same ingredient formula – meat (or other protein), filler, binder and spice. For this recipe the protein is smoked sausage, broccoli is the filler, cheese the binder and various spices for more flavor.

SMOKED SAUSAGE OPTIONS

For our recipe, we used rope style Polska Kielbasa smoked sausage, made with pork, turkey and beef. Polska Kielbasa tends to have more garlic flavor than regular smoked sausage. When making any recipe, using ingredients you like will yield the best results for you, so use the smoked sausage variety that you prefer.

TIPS FOR MAKING A CASSEROLE

PREP ALL OF THE INGREDIENTS

The easiest way to make a casserole is prep all of your ingredients first. Casseroles generally have all of the ingredients mixed together, so it won’t be obvious if you missed an ingredient. You wouldn’t want to forget that you added the cayenne pepper and then add it again by mistake!

CHECK THE SODIUM CONTENT

There is sodium naturally and added to many recipe ingredients. Salt can easily make or break the flavor of the casserole. If there is too little salt you can add some… too much salt and the dish is ruined. This recipe contains 698 mg of sodium in each serving, so no additional salt was added to the recipe ingredients.

ADD SPICES TO WET INGREDIENTS

For even flavor, stir the spices into the wet ingredients. This will spread the spices out evenly thru the entire casserole.
