Keto Zucchini Casserole Recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 4 medium zucchinis, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare Zucchini: Slice the zucchinis into thin rounds. You can use a knife or a mandoline slicer for even slices. Lay the slices on paper towels to absorb excess moisture.
  3. Prepare the Custard Mixture: In a bowl, whisk together the heavy cream, eggs, minced garlic, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper. Mix until well combined.
  4. Assemble the Casserole: Grease a baking dish with cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil. Place a layer of zucchini slices on the bottom of the dish, slightly overlapping them. Sprinkle a portion of the shredded mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese over the zucchini. Repeat this process to create layers until you’ve used up all the zucchini and cheese.
  5. Pour Custard Mixture: Carefully pour the custard mixture over the layered zucchini and cheese, making sure it’s evenly distributed.
  6. Bake: Place the casserole in the preheated oven and bake for about 25-30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the custard is set. You can test the doneness by inserting a knife into the center – it should come out clean.
  7. Serve: Once baked, remove the casserole from the oven and let it cool slightly before serving. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
