Disclosure: I’m partnering with Eggland’s Best Eggs to bring you this recipe post.
I’m pretty certain that you may already know this, but I am a huge fan of make ahead meals. I have a massive stash of meal prep ingredients in the fridge and completely cooked meals in the freezer. It’s pretty amazing when you realize that just a few simple ingredients can create a protein-packed, nutritious meal, and that the meal is ready to heat and eat whenever you want it.
Tex-Mex Egg and Cheese Cauliflower Casserole
This keto egg casserole recipe uses a total of 5 ingredients! Okay, 6 if you want to count the spices. But seriously, this is all you will need to make the cheesy egg and cauliflower casserole:
- cauliflower rice
- Eggland’s Best organic eggs
- shredded cheddar cheese
- hot sauce (or enchilada sauce), salt, and pepper
About the Recipe Ingredients
I have a few notes and tips about the recipe ingredients that I think will help you.
I prefer to use homemade cauliflower rice. It’s super easy to make if you have a food processor. Besides, making cauliflower rice at home costs less than buying prepared cauliflower rice from the store. That being said, you can buy the ready to use riced cauliflower if you want to.
For this meal prep recipe, you have two options for the eggs:
- Whole eggs only – For a richer taste, you can use 6 or 7 whole eggs rather than 5. Of course the cholesterol may be higher, but the protein count, vitamins and minerals will be higher as well!
- Combination of whole eggs and egg whites – This option is definitely lighter in regard to cholesterol count.
Now, this may seem difficult to believe but there are a lot of people who find separating eggs to be challenging. If you have trouble separating eggs, you are not alone! But here’s a tip!
How to Separate Eggs – TIP
Separate the egg yolk from egg white when the eggs are cold, not room temperature. eggs separate more easily than room temperature eggs. Fresh from the fridge eggs separate more easily because the whites and yolks are still set/firm.
I use Eggland’s Best organic eggs for a lot of reasons – let me explain:
First of all, the hens at Eggland’s Best are on a high-quality all-vegetarian diet. That vegetarian feed contains no hormones, animal fat, animal by-products, and no recycled or processed food. Those things are commonly found in livestock and poultry feeds.
Eggland’s Best gives their hens only the best food! They use a wholesome feed containing soybean meal, healthy grains, canola oil, and/or flax seed (high in Omega-3 fatty acids). The feed also contains a Biotene® supplement, a unique supplement that includes rice bran, alfalfa meal, sea kelp, and Vitamin E. It makes sense that if the feed is nutritionally superior to what is fed to other hens, Eggland’s Best hens probably lay nutritionally superior eggs, do you agree?
When I don’t want the mess of separating eggs, I use the Eggland’s Best liquid egg whites.
Eggland’s Best 100% Liquid Egg Whites are made exclusively from farm-fresh Eggland’s Best shell eggs. This means, the liquid egg whites are just as good for you as the whole eggs.
Alright, now that we have eggs, cheese, veggies, and all those Tex Mex flavors on the brain, let me quick show you how to layer this egg and cauliflower casserole. Yep, just 4 simple steps with 5ish ingredients
