Note to self: casseroles and quiches are delicious to eat but not as fun to photograph as some banana bread – ha!

After I made this recipe the first time and shared it over on my Instagram stories, you guys were going crazy for the recipe. I whipped it up again since my whole family loved it. Plus I couldn’t not share this new recipe idea with you guys!

I found some ground breakfast sausage in my freezer, which is what originally inspired this recipe. And I wanted to use up everything I had in my freezer as you guys know that is my favorite (more on that here).

I also had some extra loaves of bread in there, one being a grain-free loaf, which I lightly toasted that as well to add into this recipe.

What I love about this healthier gluten-free egg and sausage casserole is how versatile it is and easy to make and have for the whole week.

We got about 4-5 servings from this and Ezra loved it so much too. He eats pretty much everything we eat (for now..) and I was shocked he didn’t require extra ketchup. Usually the only way he’ll eat eggs is by adding ketchup!

Let’s run through the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • Ground breakfast sausage – you can also use a vegan sausage or any other meat you prefer
  • Eggs – the main star of the show
  • Full-fat coconut milk – I like using the one from a can here. It adds extra flavor and great consistency to the dish but you can use another milk as well
  • Bread of choice – any bread you have/love works. Toast up a few slices so it is lightly toasted then cut up and add to dish!
  • Optional mix-in ideas: cheese, dairy-free cheese, roasted veggies, scallions, anything!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage (uncooked)
  • 5 pieces bread of choice (I used a grain-free one from my freezer)
  • 6 pasture-raised eggs
  • 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk (or sub your preferred milk)
  • Optional mix-in’s: any cooked veggies like caramelized onions, mushrooms, etc. Any cheese or non-dairy cheeses
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat and slightly grease with some avocado oil
  2. Add the sausage to pan and use a spatula to break into pieces and cook for about 5-7 minutes or until sausage is brown
  3. Remove sausage from skillet and add to a paper towel lined plate to absorb the oil
  4. Lightly toast bread then slice into small pieces
  5. Grease the skillet with avocado oil then evenly spread the bread pieces across followed by sausage and veggies if using
  6. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and salt + pepper
  7. Sprinkle some cheese or non-dairy cheese on top if desired
  8. Pour egg mixture into the skillet and bake for about 30 minutes or until ready

Notes

*Store leftovers in fridge for 5 days

**You can also cook this in an 8×8 or 9×9 dish if you don’t have a cast iron. Just cook the sausage in a regular pan (I love using the cast iron for less clean up after!)

I love seeing you what you make my recipes!
