Breakfast Casserole With Sausages

Breakfast Casserole With Sausages

Here’s another savory breakfast (or lunch, or snack…) recipe that’s easy to make ahead and save in individual containers for quick grab-and-go nutrition. The combination of eggs and sausages is hearty and filling, and the sweet potatoes are perfect if you’re grabbing something on the run after a workout (for a lower-carb version, substitute winter squash or another favorite vegetable).

It doesn’t have to be just for workdays though; this would also make a tasty late breakfast on a weekend or day off when you don’t feel like cooking up a huge production. Throw some wilted spinach or fresh fruit salad onto your plate and you’ve got a low-fuss breakfast ready in no time.

For the sausage, just make sure you’re buying a brand that doesn’t have any added junk – or you can make your own by mixing your favorite choice of meats and spices. And of course, you can always experiment with changing up the vegetables: that’s the magic of egg dishes! Try it, see how you like it, and then tweak it so it’s just right and you’ll end up with a reliable standby recipe to keep you going strong through those busy weekday mornings.
