For all of you who have left a comment for the Eat Like a Dinosaur telling me why you want to win a copy of the cookbook…you have amazed me!  I seriously wish I could give a copy to everyone.  You all left me speechless on how you not only want to make steps to better your own health but the little ones in your life.  It speaks mountains and I want to really thank you all for your words.  You amazed me and made me realize just how wonderful you all are and how much you care about your health.  You are the reason why I love to blog and to create new recipes.  Thanks for inspiring and for pretty much rocking!  Love you guys!  Now if you haven’t entered for a chance to win a copy of Eat Like a Dinosaur you have until Sunday 12 midnight EST to enter.  So go now….but come back of course so I can share this recipe with you.

Breakfast….it pretty much rules in my opinion.  I love it!  Not sure what I would do without a breakfast of some sort.  I look forward to it….call me crazy but seriously if I could pick one meal of the day that is my very favorite…breakfast would win hands down.  Now breakfast on the weekends….get out!  LOVE!  I usually wait a little longer on the weekends so officially my breakfast is really brunch…but honestly does it matter because you can technically have breakfast for dinner and what would that be brinner?  ha!  Ok, rambling.  Breakfast/brunch (whatever you prefer) was what was needed this past weekend.  After picking up some fabulous produce at my local green market I had a well stocked refrigerator to make this spur of the moment breakfast casserole.  Everything you want in one little dish.  Pretty outstanding!  even better….great leftovers for those weekday mornings!  That is if its not all eaten the moment it comes out of the oven.  Another pretty amazing thing about this casserole is you can play around with what you put in it.  I love sweet potatoes and spinach and I’m a little obsessed with both of them these days so those were magic for me in this casserole.  Am I rambling again?  I tend to do that when I’m over tired and stressed….yes I’m both.  Life is pretty much crazy.  I promise I will share soon…at least I’m hoping I can share soon.  The good thing is next week is V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N!!!  Over the moon about taking some much needed time off from work (yes, I have a 8-5).  Kids are on spring break so we are headed off for some fun filled days.  Yippee!  With that being said posting might be a little limited next week.  I’m hoping to come back well rested and have some more recipes to share.

Oh…added the print button below so you can print the recipes.  I will start adding that now to all recipes.  I stopped for awhile (I was being lazy…sorry).

Ok, I’m off…have a great rest of your week and weekend and remember to enter for the Eat Like a Dinosaur Giveaway if you haven’t already.

    What kind of sausage do you use? Do you just pick up something from Earth Fare or Whole Foods?

  3. MDelicious says:

    Hi Jenny,
    I usually use the sausage from US Wellness. Look to the side bar to find link to website. I’ve also used the sausage from Whole Foods, but again prefer if possible to use US Wellness breakfast sausage. :)

    How does this recipe do with reheating?

  6. MDelicious says:

    Hi Kathy,

    This is great reheated and enjoyed throughout your week. Best if eaten within 3 to 4 days after making though. Some readers have also frozen and reheated and they said it worked great too.

    My husband LOVES this recipe – we are recent paleo style eating converts. And I must admit it’s excellent! He makes a large batch every Sunday evening, often my four year old son will jump in and help as well. And then we eat it every morning for breakfast throughout the week.
    Thanks for sharing your recipe!
    Best,
    Amber

    I live in a rural area and have to drive an hour to get to a whole foods or earth fare or anything remotely healthy. What would you suggest I use for the sausage due to my limited capabilities until I make my monthly run. I also have a friend who just slaughtered a pig and is giving me some homemade sausage. Will this work?

  9. MDelicious says:

    Hi Rhonda,
    That would work great! You can also find great choices from US Wellness Meats. They ship right to your door. :)

  10. stephanie says:

    Could you substitute sausage for bacon? I went to whole foods yesterday and couldn’t find any sausage that was organic and not already pre-cooked.

  11. MDelicious says:

    Stephanie,
    You can cook the sausage before adding it to the casserole. I do that all the time. If not, the bacon will work but I would suggest cooking it first.

  12. Lexy says:

    Made this dish this morning for Sunday brunch. Fabulous! My friends and husband enjoyed it. Created my own sausage using ground pork, fennel seeds, sage, nutmeg, ginger, red pepper flakes, salt/pepper.

    I made this casserole last night, heated up in the microwave this morning. My kids and I liked this very much! Thanks for sharing the recipe. I can see how I will be able to mix up with different veggies and meats in the future… a very versatile way to use up whatever is left in the fridge. Thanks again!

  16. Tammi says:

    I used ground turkey cooked in bacon fat and added a sausage spice blend, and it was excellent. I love it with the diced sweet potatoes. Thanks for the recipe!

  17. Elizabeth says:

    Easy and yum! used the roasted sweet potatoes and beets left over from the night before. Now I have breakfast for all week.

  18. Huibi says:

    My son is a competitive swimmer. No matter how much he swims, he stays on heavier side with our regular diet. His coach suggested paleo diet, so we start it this week and came across your website. This is a delicious casserole. I switched the sweet potatoes with organic red potatoes. But next time, I will definitely use sweet potatoes.

  19. […] Paleo Breakfast Casserole I’ve personally made this recipe and I really REALLY like it. My only tip would be to ensure you cut the sweet potatoes into very small cubes or the whole thing tastes like a sweet potato. If you don’t mind that, then go with larger chunks. […]

  20. Jeanie says:

    Hi I work full time during the week so I’m looking for something fast In the mornings. Is this something that will hold in the fridge and still taste good?

  21. Patti says:

    This is a terrific recipe! Thank you for creating it. I made it for lunch with a friend today, and she suggested a bit of cheese on top for sharing with non-paleo friends. So that’s what I’m doing for our choir breakfast tomorrow. Then I’m making it again tomorrow afternoon to give as a thank you gift – who wouldn’t love a week of yummy breakfasts sitting in the fridge?
    PS: I’ve already found out that it’s good cold.
