How to Make Low Carb Taco Casserole
How to Make the Keto Noodles
Preheat oven to 375°F Line a 9”x 13” baking dish with parchment paper. Grease the parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together the cream cheese and eggs. Next, add the Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and onion powder. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
Spread the mixture into the baking dish, forming a nice even layer. Bake on the middle rack for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
When the "noodles" are done baking, cool in the fridge for about 20 minutes and then cut into thirds. This makes three perfectly sized "noodle" layers for an 8.5 X 4.5 X 2.5 loaf pan.
