Tips & Variations for Easy Whole30 Breakfast Bake

  • Although it’s possible to find compliant sausage in the store, I find it easier and more economical to make my own using just ground turkey and seasonings (ground pork is also a great alternative and even more similar to authentic sausage.)  Or if you have a favorite compliant sausage, by all means use it here!
  • The nutritional yeast in this recipe adds a nice savory, cheesy flavor but is also totally optional.
  • This casserole is easily customizable based on what you have on hand.  Add or substitute other veggies to the recipe.  Spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes would be great.  Or substitute bacon for the sausage.
  • For a Keto, diet, feel free to add shredded cheese.
  • Pack servings into these glass containers for easy make ahead meals.
