Enter this broccoli cheese keto casserole, one of our favorite keto thanksgiving side dishes that delivers on flavor while enabling you to stick to your ketogenic diet.

The fresh broccoli is first drizzled with some healthy FBOMB Olive Oil and mixed with full-fat cream cheese, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, and garlic. 

It’s then baked into a creamy, cheesy luscious casserole that’s topped with parmesan cheese, green onion and crushed Cheddar Keto Krunch for a little extra flavor and crunch. 

Keto Krunch is made with 100% natural ingredients from premium fresh milk sourced from local family farm cows that are ethically treated.

Low in Carbs, High in Nutrients

This recipe is packed with vitamins, minerals, and other compounds that have been shown to do a great deal of good within the body. 

For example...

Olive oil contains polyphenols that research shows may support healthy cholesterol levels and boost the immune system[*][*]. 

Broccoli is a star ingredient in this recipe and provides it with its delicious flavor. But it also shines for another reason: broccoli is high in fiber, minerals, and vitamins -- one of which is Vitamin C. 

Just 100g of broccoli contains 148% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. Research has found that Vitamin C supplementation can increase the levels of antioxidants in the blood[*].
