Delicious Southwestern Pork and Avocado Casserole

Delicious Southwestern Pork and Avocado Casserole | Ketoship

I love casseroles: they’re a cinch to make, delicious, portable (making them great for breakfast or lunch on the go) and very forgiving – they accommodate pretty much any protein and veggies you might have lying around in your fridge. In other words, they’re perfect for when you want to prep your breakfasts or lunch for the week and take the stress out of your weekdays!

This Southwestern pork and avocado casserole ticks all the boxes: the avocado, eggs and pork provide the fat that make this recipe keto (while also delivering oodles of flavour!), the spices add that all important umami and the “format” of the casserole make it easy to eat on the go. Simply follow the recipe, let it cool, cut it up and dig in! Super delicious with greens and a dollop of homemade mayo for even more fat.
