    Low Carb Breakfast Lasagna
    16K+
    My husband Matt gets credit for this breakfast lasagna recipe idea. When he first mentioned it as a breakfast possibility I thought it would be pretty cool to try. I wasn't on a low carb diet at the time, and thought I might use a traditional noodle and layer different breakfast meats, eggs, cheese, etc. I added it to my list of recipe ideas to pursue for the blog and forgot about it for awhile. I recently remembered it and thought it might work using the cream cheese pancakes to stand in for the noodles. I had some pancakes leftover in the fridge from the zero carb tiramisu I made the other day so I made it for breakfast this morning. It's yummy! I kept it simple and just layered breakfast sausage links, fluffy scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and the pancakes. I may try different variations of this recipe in the future (fresh herbs, goat cheese, mushrooms, onions, spinach - the sky's the limit really!) but this is what I had on hand. Even my son liked this low carb breakfast lasagna, and it's something you can make ahead in a casserole and gently reheat in the morning for breakfast. I consider the recipe a success, and will be making it again for something a little different from the norm. If you like to mix savory and sweet in the morning, you could put syrup on it or use the stevia sweetened version of the pancakes for just a touch of sweet. Play with it and let us know if you come up with any cool variations on this recipe!

    Serves 4

    Ingredients:

    8 eggs, scrambled
    1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
    12 sausage links, fully cooked
    12 cream cheese pancakes (unsweetened)

    Cover the bottom of an 8 x 8 pan with 4 pancakes, it's ok if they overlap. Put down a layer of scrambled eggs, followed by a layer of cheese. Cover with another 4 pancakes. Add all of the sausage links. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Add last layer of pancakes, followed by scrambled eggs, and the remainder of the cheese. You can use more cheese if you like. Bake or microwave until the cheese is melted. 3 -4 minutes in the microwave or 8 - 10 in the oven at 350 degrees (F). Cut into squares and serve. Bet this would be great with Hollandaise sauce - might try that next time! Meanwhile it was pretty tasty on it's own!
