So, the next time you have a potluck and need to bring a casserole - MAKE THIS ONE. I can't claim it as my own recipe, I adapted it from this gal here. I do think there could be improvements in her method, and I'll mention those as I go. I also used slightly different measurements. This casserole is really a pretty balanced meal all in one - you've got tons of protein, healthy fat, greens, and healthy carbs with the sweet potato. It's kind of perfect. So, without further ado...
Paleo Sausage and Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole
1 lb breakfast sausage
1 tsp coconut oil
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp pepper
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 cups power greens (kale, spinach, arugula)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Melt coconut oil in large skillet over medium heat and then add sausage. Brown and break up with a wooden spoon, and allow to drain and cool on a paper towel. Beat eggs in extra large bowl, and add coconut milk and seasonings. Shred sweet potatoes with your food processor shredding wheel, or by hand works too. Dice your onion. Add sweet potato, onion, and greens (I used prewashed baby kale) into egg mixture. Last, add in the cooked sausage. Pour the whole thing into a 9x13 pan and spread out. Bake for 45 minutes. Cover with foil and cook for 10 more minutes or until center is set. Enjoy!
And we're done! So pretty!
