This super flavorful breakfast casserole is one of my favorite ways to enjoy eggs.
For a long time, my go-to was an omelette filled with cheese and vegetables. However, I discovered that dairy causes inflammation for me, so I’ve been trying to eat less cheese.
Simply eliminating the cheese from my omelette felt unsatisfying, though. I needed a new favorite breakfast. And that’s when the idea of a paleo breakfast casserole came to mind!
This is the kind of hearty breakfast that keeps you full and happy for hours. The sausage gives it amazing flavor, plus it’s packed with veggies. To be honest, I didn’t even miss the cheese in this dish.
It’s also a fantastic way to meal prep for the week. If you’ve been searching for healthy, budget-friendly meal prep ideas, this paleo egg casserole is the perfect solution. It will keep well in the fridge for a week, or you can freeze slices for later!
