Sweet Potato Sausage Breakfast Casserole

It’s taken me 8 winters in Minneapolis to finally proclaim that I can hang with the polar bears around here:

1.  We count years here by the number of winters one has endured.  The more winters you’ve got under your belt, the more badges of honor.

2. Polar bears are really humans who throw their heads back and laugh in the face of extremely brutal temps.

I will probably never crack a smile about winter, but I can finally say I’m officially Minnesotan: for the first time in my real and imagined life, I went for a two hour run in -12F actual temp (-24F with windchill and definite peer pressure.)

Admittedly, the spread of brunch food after our frigid group run made the day so. much. better. There were plenty of healthy grain bagels, GF and sugar free granola, fresh fruit, egg bakes, and healthy breakfast casseroles.

Speaking of healthy breakfast casseroles, check this irresistible Sweet Potato Sausage Breakfast Casserole…

    Amazing!! I used turkey sausage instead of normal breakfast sausage and still sooo flavorful.

      • Amy Dong

      Yay, that’s awesome, Bridget!

    • Beth

    I have made this so many times now. I love it!

      • Amy Dong

      Yay, Beth!

    • Elizabeth Molin

    I made it for a gathering at Christmas, we are mostly dairy free and gluten free but the rest of our parry was not… I hesitated making this fir fear of people missing the bread and cheese that are typically in breakfast casseroles. To my surprise everyone had seconds and the recipe was requested by all my guests!

      • Amy Dong

      Aww, it doesn’t get better than that! 🙂

    • Alexandra

    Has anyone made a half recipe of this for a smaller crowd? Just wondering about pan and baking time. 🙂

    • Michael

    My daughter made this for me over the weekend. It’s a very satisfying dish that is both sweet and savory. Definitely a keeper.

      • chewoutloud

      You’ve got a wonderful daughter 🙂

    • Kathleen

    Sooo good! Just started Whole30 and stumbled on this recipe. My husband and I gobbled it up this morning. I had no Kale so used spinach instead and it worked just as well.

      • chewoutloud

      SO happy you loved it, Kathleen!

    • Emily

    I love this! Wondering – do you think it could be made in muffin cups for easy grab & go?

      • Tammy

      Has anybody made this with vanilla flavored almond milk?

    • CV

    Made this for a school breakfast. Not concerned about the Whole30/Paleo, so made it with regular milk and added shredded cheddar to the top. It was delicious! Co-workers are asking for the recipe. 🙂

      • chewoutloud

      Now you’ve got a new favorite to share! 🙂

    • Liv

    I made this recipe as it is written and I LOVE IT. so flavorful! It is definitely an official go-to for us! I’m wondering: do you think it’s possible to freeze portions?

      • chewoutloud

      Yes, you can freeze portions airtight. Glad you loved it, Liv!

    • KC

    Hi, looks delicious! what can I use in place of the eggs pls? If an egg substitute, how much? Thank you!

    • Gloria

    This is by far the BEST breakfast casserole recipe I have ever made! It is worth the extra steps! I made it for a gathering for a bride-to-be and she wanted me to make it again for her wedding day breakfast. Thank you so much for for sharing this recipe

      • chewoutloud

      What a special breakfast gathering it must have been, Gloria! 🙂

    • Kim

    Beautiful, delectable, healthy casserole!

      • chewoutloud

      Thank you, Kim!

    • Kate

    I love having this casserole on hand!

      • chewoutloud

      So glad you liked it, Kate!

    • Katy

    If reheating in the morning do you cook at 400 for an hour? That seems like a high temp for that long?

      • chewoutloud

      You would do 1 hour only if you prepped the casserole the night before, but it’s not yet cooked. If reheating a fully cooked casserole, try 350F for 20 minutes or just until center is warmed through. Enjoy! 🙂

    • Sue Anne

    Made this casserole yesterday and reheated the leftovers this morning. I think it was even better this morning. One thing I’m going to experiment with is sautéing the kale before assembling the ingredients.

    • Chey

    Question: Can I use whole milk instead of non-dairy and would that swap affect the baking time? Thanks! I can hardly wait to make this.

      • chewoutloud

      Yes, you can use whole milk without affecting the baking time 🙂

      • Chey

      Since my initial question, I’ve made this many times because, it’s just so dang good and versatile! I love sweet potatoes in many forms and had never considered using them in a breakfast casserole with eggs. SO, so delicious. I’ve since used sweet potatoes for breakfast many times. Thank you so much for the awesome recipe. 🙂

        • chewoutloud

        So great to hear that, Chey! Thanks for coming over 🙂
