Add the cream cheese and allow to melt and warm up. Taste test and add salt if needed.

Tips and Tricks:
For an optional, but delicious topping: Set aside a small handful of your sliced onions and lightly coat them in coconut flour. Add oil to a small pan and fry the onions until golden. Let them sit on a paper towel when you remove them from the oil and lightly salt.
Sprinkle these on top of the casserole before serving.
