PALEO Bacon & Onion Breakfast Casserole


I am the first to admit I really don’t love spending tons of time in the kitchen. I am always on the hunt for easy recipes that don’t take tons of time and that will stretch for more than one meal. If you are an egg casserole or quiche fan…ya gotta try this one!!

INGREDIENTS

Crust:

  • 2 mashed sweet potatoes 
  • 3/4 cup almond meal
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp baking soda 

Egg Mixture:

  • 10 eggs, beaten
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 dozen slices bacon, crumbled
  • 2 sliced tomatoes

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 400F. Cook and mash sweet potatoes, then combine remaining crust ingredients. Mix well. Press into greased 13×9 casserole dish (I greased mine with coconut oil). 

Mix together beaten eggs, chopped onion, seasoning & bacon. Pour mixture on top of prepared crust. Then spread sliced tomatoes on top of egg mixture. 

Bake @ 400F for 25 minutes or until golden brown and eggs are set.

I just made ours and it is half gone. However, it would be great to cut into single portion sizes and freeze for a fast, filling, healthy breakfast option on busy mornings!!

Mexican Brunch Pie

I make this every Christmas morning and sometimes Easter.  It’s a hit, supper yummy AND EASY!!! Great for those watching carb intake but wanting something tasty at a brunch.  This is a very calorie dense recipe, so I cut the slices smaller than some might.  Adding veggies would be an excellent way to cut calories and add fiber & variety.

5 eggs, beaten
2 tbsp. butter, melted
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 (8 oz.) ctns. cream-style cottage cheese
2 c. (8 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese (or Pepper Jack which is a fav at my house!)
1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies, drained

Directions

Preheat oven to 400F.
Mix beaten eggs with butter (melted) & baking powder & flour in a large mixing bowl at medium speed until mixture is well blended. Stir in cottage cheese, shredded cheese & green chilies. Spoon into a well-greased pie dish.
Back uncovered 10 minutes; reduce heat to 350F & bake 20 minutes or until set.
