Hey friends! Here today with a new breakfast recipe. I made this randomly on Sunday and I wasn’t really planning for it to go up on the blog but it was too delicious not to share! This breakfast casserole is easy and perfect for meal prep. Just like my meal prep breakfast muffins and sheet pan breakfast. To be honest, if I had it my way, all recipes would be breakfast recipes. Brinner anyone? I could seriously eat eggs every day on anything. Yup. Anything.
The other great thing about this breakfast casserole? It’s Whole30 compliant. I’m coming up on the finish line of my first Whole30 and I think I will definitely be incorporating more compliant meals like this one into my diet! When I started Whole30 one of the things I was worried about was missing out on my favorite foods. Especially cheese in dishes like this one. But to be honest, I have been eating so many delicious meals that I really haven’t missed too much (besides wine). And adding avocado to my breakfasts gives me the healthy fats I crave instead of cheese. I mean, I won’t say I’m never having cheese again ever but now I don’t feel the need for it on a daily basis. Whole30 has changed my tastebuds and cravings! If you’re curious about the rest of my Whole30 experience you can check out these posts:
Ok back to the reason you’re here. Breakfast casserole. Like most of my other recipes this one is really versatile. Super fancy and complicated recipes aren’t really my thing. I like to make recipes that I can change up and just use whatever I have on hand. So if you don’t like breakfast sausage, try chorizo, bacon or ground turkey. Throw in whatever veggie floats your boat while you’re at it.
I’ve been liking breakfast with a little side of fruit lately. I’ve never been a fruit for breakfast kinda gal but these oranges were the perfect compliment to the casserole. Once it was all done it was easy to pop it into meal prep containers for grab and go breakfast for the week.
- 1 lb compliant breakfast sausage (I used Mulay's)
- 1 large russet potato shredded (I used a food processor to do this but you could use the larger part of a cheese grater)
- 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
- 1 medium green pepper diced
- 12 eggs
- 1/2 cup white onion diced
- 2 tbsp almond milk
- 1 tbsp avocado oil
- salt and pepper to taste
- Cook onion in avocado oil in a medium skillet and sauté until translucent (1-2 min)
- Add breakfast sausage to skillet and cook until done, breaking into crumbles
- While sausage is cooking, chop broccoli & bell pepper and shred the potato
- Grease a 9x11 baking pan with your cooking fat of choice and add shredded potato, bell pepper and broccoli
- once cooked, add breakfast sausage to pan
- Crack 12 eggs into a bowl and whisk together with almond milk and salt and pepper
- Pour eggs over mixture in baking pan and use a fork to distribute the eggs
- Bake at 350 for 25-30 min or until a fork comes out clean and eggs are set.
