This delicious and somewhat nutritious paleo breakfast casserole is great for upcoming holidays. It’s filled with chunks of sweet potato, sausage, and more. This is low FODMAP diet friendly, as well as gluten free!
I love breakfast casseroles! They are usually so easy to put together, and everyone seems to enjoy them. A few weeks ago during General Conference, I decided I would make a breakfast casserole to start the morning off. While I usually default to my favorite easy sausage breakfast casserole, since we’ve had to put Jack on a low FODMAP diet, I thought I would make something he could enjoy, too. I’m supposed to be eating little dairy and gluten as well, so I figured I could indulge in it guilt-free, as well!
As it turned out, this turned into a Paleo breakfast casserole. While I don’t have any desires to live a complete Paleo lifestyle, I think it’s nice to incorporate those types of meals every now and again. This casserole was SO yummy, even if it was missing some of my favorite breakfast casserole ingredients (namely, cheese.)
I never used to eat sweet potatoes until I met Forrest, but they’ve become one of my favorite foods to cook with. They are a lot more nutritious than regular potatoes, and really, I think they are a lot more flavorful. I had used sweet potatoes in these healthy breakfast burritos in the past, so I thought it would be fun to use them in this casserole!
