This low carb broccoli cheese casserole is so rich and cheesy, a little goes a long way. It is ultra satisfying. To keep this Keto Broccoli Cheese Casserole low carb, there is a crunchy pork rind topping as a finishing touch. So much better than crackers!!
How to Steam Fresh Broccoli:
Place the broccoli in a microwave-safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes. Let sit for another 2 minutes before removing the plastic wrap.
Alternately, you can place the broccoli in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover and steam until crisp-tender. Keep in mind the broccoli will cook more in the oven so you want it to still be crisp.
Cream cheese not only makes this casserole super creamy, it makes it nice and thick without adding any flour. For cheese I use a combination of mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, and cheddar cheese so that there is lots of cheese flavor.
You could add diced cooked chicken in this casserole and then you would have a one dish meal.
Leftovers will keep refrigerated for 3 to 5 days.
