Who loves meals that take an over an hour to prepare, require ingredients you’ll only use once, and are guaranteed to cause kids to push their food around the plate with their fork?

I am pretty sure no one likes preparing those kinds of meals!

Especially when it’s a school night full of homework or after school activities.

This month (August for all of the future readers) is dedicated to easy back-to-school recipes that won’t break the bank, the timer, or your sanity!

If you like keto bar-be-que and my keto cornbread, you’re going to love this easy one skillet keto casserole!

Thank you to The Ohio Pork Council for sponsoring this post! Visit their website to learn all about responsible pig farming and tips for making the juiciest pork dishes!

One thing I love more than anything is a good meal that doesn’t require chopping, sautéing, or prepping.

Sure, some recipes are a labor of love and are worth the time and effort.

But those recipes that taste like a million bucks without the labor, yes please!

That’s exactly what this keto casserole is! A dump and go meal that tastes delicious and pleases the whole family!

halfway homemade recipes save you time

When I am planning my menu for the week, I always try to include one meal that is halfway homemade.

keto cornbread skillet meal

If you’re not familiar with halfway homemade recipes, they’re those kind of recipes that may use already prepared ingredients like rotisserie chicken, or in this case, pulled pork.

I love these kinds of recipes because they save so much time in the kitchen and get my family eating sooner!

In this easy keto casserole recipe, I used store bought pulled pork (from Costco), frozen okra, and a store bought sugar free bbq sauce.

The only prep work for this dish is cooking your bacon and mixing up the cornbread!

Of course, if you were really pressed for time, you could use bacon bits in place of the fresh cooked bacon!

A quick bake in the oven gives you just enough time to go through backpacks, sign agendas, or pack tomorrow’s lunch box!

is okra low carb?

If you’re not from the Deep South, you may not be familiar with okra.

Okra is a low carb vegetable found in alot of southern recipes. It’s amazing fried but some like it pickled too!

It is naturally low in carbs and high in fiber making it ideal for a ketogenic diet.

I added okra to this low carb casserole to add texture and nutrients to the dish. Plus, it’s just yummy!

Okra is high in vitamins A, C, as well as magnesium!

As far as taste, it is very mild. Even picky little eaters wont notice anything! Of course, okra pieces are big enough kiddos can pick them out if they are being especially obstinate at meal time.

Store bought pulled pork is one of my secret weapons.

I usually grab a package of the Kirkland Pulled Pork every time I make a Costco run!

Keto BBQ Casserole with Pulled Pork and Bacon

Of course, I love making my own keto pulled pork (you can get that recipe here) too but sometimes momma needs a break.

Just make sure the pork you buy isn’t tossed in sugary sauces.

Pulled pork is a great way to consume healthy fat to support your ketogenic diet too!

While most pork cuts are lean, and also great for keto, the fattier shoulders and butts (ha!) are ideal.

That is why I try to incorporate recipes like this pulled pork keto casserole into my menu rotation often.

So I changed this up a bit, but it shouldn't change your carbs. I added jalapenos to the "cornbread" about 3/4 of a cup (we like it spicy) and did some jalapeno cheddar cheese curds grated 8nstead of regular. I used my mexican taco seasoning (also no sugar) and then to keep it texmex/ mexican I added one can of drained rotel. We topped with a bit more cheese (between the meat and cornbread layer) which was regular cheddar. And last we had toppings of sour cream, I use a homemade that might be 1 or 2 carbs per serving, cilantro, diced fresh tomatoes, and hot sauce of choice. We like Valentina's. Yum! Thanks so much for the great idea for this caserol.!!!!

How would this be with frozen green beans instead of okra?
