Packed with vegetables, this Paleo Breakfast Casserole with Chicken is a simple and delicious recipe. Serve it for brunch or make it on Sunday and reheat a slice every day for breakfast during the week.
Happy New Year. It’s good to be back! I took the past couple of weeks off and it was AMAZING. It’s the longest true break I’ve taken since I started blogging 5.5 years ago and I didn’t realize how much I needed it. I did pop in a couple of times – I shared my new favorite way to use leftover pork in this Pulled Pork and Apple Tostada, I recapped our trip to Chicago for Christmas, I shared what Squish has been up to since his birthday in this Dear Chase – Months 13 & 14 letter and I suggested 5 Things To Add To Your Diet in 2016. So, be sure to check those out if you missed any of them. Since I had some time off from my work for Regan and I wasn’t spending time blogging or social media sharing, etc., I actually had a blast in the kitchen! I tested and photographed all sorts of delicious recipes to share with you guys over the next few weeks!
To kick things off, I thought I’d share this Paleo Breakfast Casserole that Squish and I have been eating for breakfast for the past several days. Squish is in a phase where he needs breakfast IMMEDIATELY when he decides he’s hungry in the morning so it’s nice to have something like this on hand that I can quickly slice, reheat and serve in about 2 minutes.
I usually gravitate towards sausage for breakfast but this time, I opted to use chicken. I threw in lots of veggies, included a spiralized sweet potato, which cooks a lot faster than chunks of sweet potato. It’s naturally paleo and gluten-free and you could easily customize it with your favorite veggies.
If you’re not worried about keeping this paleo, feel free to add some cheese! I’ve been topping mine with avocado and sweet potato (#whatelseisnew?).
Here’s how you make it:
You could also make this as individual egg muffins. Just divide the veggie/chicken mixture into greased muffin tins, pour eggs over top, and reduce the cooking time.
This is a super easy, protein-packed breakfast that makes it easy to get a few veggies in to start your day! The fact that it can be made ahead of time is an added bonus!
