Low Carb Breakfast Lasagna (Gluten Free)
My husband Matt (aka. “Mr. Hungry”) 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 or gluten free 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 then forgot about it for awhile.
I recently remembered it, and thought it might work as a low carb breakfast option, using the cream cheese pancakes to stand in for the noodles. I had some pancakes leftover in the fridge from the low carb caramel machiatto tiramisu I posted 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.
As a bonus, you can make this ahead in a casserole form, and then gently heat in the morning for breakfast.
If you like to mix savory and sweet in the morning, you could pour sugar free syrup on it, or use the stevia sweetened version of the pancakes for just a hint of sweetness. Play with it and let us know if you come up with any cool variations on this recipe!
