Sweet Potato & Sausage Breakfast Casserole

By: Ryan Noelle  December 19, 2012


    Good Morning!  What a way to start your day!  This casserole is amazing! Honestly, this is one of my favorite ways to eat breakfast.

    I simply made this casserole the night before placed it in the fridge over night.  The next morning pop it in the oven and I look like a superstar come breakfast time.  This dish is gluten free, which means it is Paleo friendly.  Also, the casserole is veggie and protein packed! If wanted the dish could be made with egg beaters or egg whites to lower the fat and cholesterol even more!

    This is the perfect dish for Christmas morning!! A healthy quick meal that your family will absolutely love!  I promise! And you know I'm not lying Santa is watching.
