Gluten Free Breakfast Casserole Recipe

One thing I have noticed lately is that I need more protein in the mornings. I typically lean towards oatmeal in the morning and although that’s a good breakfast (especially this apple cider oatmeal), I need more protein in my breakfast.

That has led me to test the waters with several different breakfast casseroles that I can easily make during the week, then warm up the leftovers all week long.

I knew that with the breakfast casserole, I wanted to add eggs to it obviously, but I wanted to do something different then just scrambling the eggs. For this casserole, I decided to simply crack an egg over it then let the egg bake in the oven.

A whole dozen eggs can actually be used to crack over the 9×13 casserole. I basically averaged it out so that I would get one egg per serving. By doing this I had some protein in my breakfast but not too heavy on the egg yolks since I am watching my cholesterol too.

I also packed our casserole with garden fresh vegetables. The one thing I love about a good breakfast casserole is that you can really use what you have on hand; we used green peppers and onions along with ground sausage. Roasted broccoli and cauliflower would be awesome too.

I made it one evening, then I heated up the leftovers throughout the week for breakfast. I would also imagine it would be a good casserole to freeze too if you want it to last longer than a week.

I served ours topped with freshly ground black peppercorn and paired it with a warm cup of coffee.

What types of breakfast foods are on your go to menu in the mornings? For us, it is always easy foods, that is why I absolutely love foods I can make ahead and warm up in the mornings.
