Doing the Whole30 sure has been eye-opening. I’m eleven days in and super happy with the changes (non scale victories) and most of all, the food. Especially my favorite meal of the day, breakfast! I’m all about quick wins for the morning, so I spent some time today prepping this sweet potato breakfast casserole to eat throughout the week.

Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole
To make this savory (Whole30 Compliant) breakfast (that I’ve also had for lunch and dinner), you’ll need:
- 8×8 casserole baking pan (this one is great because it has a lid for saving your leftovers) and a cookie sheet (treat yourself to a good set like these), each greased with EVOO spray
- 2 large sweet potatoes – 1 cut in thin slices and 1 cut in cubes
- Veggies of choice (recommend onions, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, or spinach)
- 8 large eggs
Start off by roasting your sweet potato slices in the 8×8 pan (line it with the slices) and your vegetables on the cookie sheet. This happens best in a 425-degree oven for 20 minutes (recommend stirring the veggies at 10 minutes in).
While the veggies are roasting, whisk the eight eggs together. If you like spicy, mix in some red pepper flakes or garlic.
Once the veggies are roasted, pile them into the casserole dish on top of the sweet potato slices (they’re going to serve as the “base” / what bread normally would do here).
I really could have just ate these veggies…
Now pour the whisked eggs over the veggies and put the casserole dish back in the oven for another 20 minutes. You’ll want to be sure the egg cooks all the way through.
You can now cut and store this (I still was enjoying four days in), eating it when you need a quick-win meal.
If you are not doing the Whole30, you might be all like WHERE IS THE CHEESE?!?!? Let me tell you, as a cheese addict, I was skeptical at first. Try it first, the sweet potato gives it something special, something that cheese would cover up. Just trust me.
PRO TIP: If you are doing the Whole30, perhaps you’ll want to pair this with some fruit or top with a compliant hot sauce. Totally recommending both. This is hearty and delicious!
