I’m always in the mood for a kielbasa and eggs breakfast around Easter time. I think it’s because we always had kielbasa for breakfast on Easter along with our dyed eggs.

Below you can see the 5 ingredients I used for this recipe: kielbasa, eggs, heavy cream, cheddar cheese and bell peppers. I like to use colorful bell peppers for recipes like this but you could also use poblano or other tasty peppers.
Same goes for cheese. You can use any flavorful shredded cheese you have on hand but I would not use mozzarella because it doesn’t have as much flavor.
Let’s make this keto breakfast kielbasa casserole!
You can make this simple recipe rather quickly and I’ll show you how.
- First microwave the peppers to precook them.
- While they are cooking, saute the sliced kielbasa in an oven safe skillet. Then add the cooked peppers and cook for another minute.
- While they are sautéing blend the eggs, cream and some of the cheese in the blender.
- Pour the egg mixture overtop the kielbasa mixture and sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese on top.
- Cover and cook for about 5 minutes. The sides should be set but the top might be a bit loose. Next set it under the broiler until the casserole has set completely and is browned on top. (If you look at the bottom left picture below you can in that it is almost completely cooked when you take off the lid.)

Recipe tips & notes.
- You can vary the kinds of peppers you use in this recipes. Poblanos would be a nice addition or add in a jalapeno for spice.
- Try different cheeses as well. Swiss or gruyere would be tasty or maybe add in a little asiago or parmesan to the cheddar for some bite. Just make sure the cheese has some flavor.
- When you take off the lid make sure the dish is mostly set up. That is the middle might be a bit wet or jiggly but the sides should be done. The top will finish cooking under the broiler.
- I ate my kielbasa and eggs with hot sauce on top. I also think salsa or sour cream and chives would be tasty.
- This recipe would be a good meal prep recipe for low carb breakfast all week. Or you can serve it for a brunch or even a low carb dinner.
