Sweet Potato Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole – a healthy breakfast casserole perfect for a large breakfast or brunch with your whole family.
If you are looking for a crowd-pleasing breakfast recipe that doesn’t require you to get up at the crack of dawn, this sweet potato sausage, and egg breakfast casserole is perfect for you!
This overnight egg breakfast casserole is great for an Easter or Christmas brunch, or anytime you have family in town. It’s a great breakfast/brunch recipe that everyone will love. I love that it’s so hands-off in the morning if you have prepped all your veggies the night before.
And leftovers are so good, they reheat really well and can last several days in the fridge. Leftovers make for a great lunch too, and they keep you full thanks to all the protein from the eggs and sausage.
Paleo Breakfast Casserole
This breakfast casserole has become one of my favorite weekend breakfasts! It is packed with veggies and eggs but it also has a delicious sweet/spicy flavor because of the sweet potatoes and the mild Italian sausage I use. I also love that it’s a healthy breakfast casserole – it’s naturally Paleo, Whole30, gluten-free, dairy-free and loaded with nutrients from all the vegetables.
Overnight Breakfast Casserole
This Sausage Egg Breakfast casserole is delicious for breakfast or brunch for a large family. You can save yourself some time in the morning by prepping the egg breakfast casserole the night before and storing it in the fridge overnight. Then in the morning you can only add the whisked eggs and pour it over the casserole and bake the sweet potato egg bake in the oven. You can have a delicious breakfast for your whole family in about 30 minutes. It’s very hands-off and you can use the time to get a pot of coffee going.
Can You Freeze Sausage Casserole
Yes, you can freeze the sausage casserole – either before or after cooking it. If you freeze it before you cook it, omit adding the eggs to the casserole, and freeze it for up to 3 months. When you are ready to cook it, place it in the fridge about 24 hours before you plan to cook it. After it has thawed in the fridge, add the eggs to the casserole dish, and bake in a preheated oven at 375 F for about 25 minutes according to the recipe’s instructions.
If you decide to freeze the casserole after you cook it, let it cool completely, cover it with plastic wrap and foil, and freeze it. You can also cut it in individual servings and freeze them separately. You can choose how many servings you want to thaw at a time. Freeze up to 3 months. Then thaw it completely in the fridge, cover it with foil and reheat it in the oven at 350 F for about 20 minutes or until warmed through in the center.

How To Make Sweet Potato Sausage and Egg Casserole
Sweet Potato, Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole
- 2 medium sized sweet potatoes, cubed (or 1 1/2 large sweet potatoes)
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 lb grass fed ground sausage
- 8 eggs
- 1/3 cup almond milk, or coconut milk
- 1 teaspoon thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add sweet potatoes to the skillet and cover with a lid. Cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally until the sweet potatoes are almost tender. Add onion and red bell pepper, season with salt & black pepper, and cook until vegetables are tender (about 3 more minutes). Transfer the vegetables to a casserole dish.
- Add sausage to the skillet and cook over medium-high heat until browned (about 5 minutes), crumbling the sausage with a spoon as it cooks. Transfer to the casserole dish.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, almond milk, and spices. Pour over the vegetables & sausage mixture in the casserole dish, and stir to combine.
- Bake the breakfast casserole covered with an aluminum foil in a 375 F preheated oven for 20 minutes. Then remove the aluminum foil and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the top of the potatoes begins to brown. Remove and let the casserole rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions and serve!

I have a 9×13 dish and I just want to know if this recipe needs to be doubled.
