Keto Eggplant Parmesan Casserole

Moussaka made keto. This low carb play on the traditional dish uses beef instead of lamb.

This keto casserole recipe packs huge bursts of flavor. Six large servings really satisfy.

Dish it Up or Down

For a fast and easy, casual version, make only two layers: meat sauce on the bottom, pile on the “layers” ingredients, then finish by pouring on the top sauce.

For more formal situations, use the full-tilt layering technique and plate to impress.
