Is there anything more wonderful than a breakfast casserole, full of flavors and good for you ingredients? I love to make this casserole over the weekend and then eat it as a quick and easy breakfast the rest of the week. It tastes delicious and I know it’s good for me! Win!
I love everything about this easy breakfast casserole recipe. I guess the most *complicated* part is precooking the sweet potato and the sausage. But that’s not really complicated at all…. so um yeah. I love mixing it up with my sweet potatoes. When I can find them I’ll use the purple ones or the white ones. I just love the variety of flavor in them!
Adding zucchini makes this extra healthy (at least for me!). I also purposefully wanted this to be dairy free and gluten free since I know so many of my friends can’t have one or both of those. So now I have and awesome and delicious paleo breakfast casserole that they can eat without worry!
This easy breakfast casserole with sausage can be adjusted to whatever you have in the fridge. Sometimes I don’t have zucchini, so I leave it out. Other times I have spinach so I add it! You get my point.
Go ahead, give this yummy breakfast casserole a try and let me know how you liked it in the comments below!

*I use green chile I have in the freezer that’s been roasted, peeled and chopped. Grocery stores are starting to carry green chile in their freezer sections, but you can always use canned or just omit the green chile all together. *I like to use avocado oil since it has a high smoke point, but you can use any oil that you have.
