This is my entire family’s favorite breakfast. Hubby, Stepson, and Parents. All of them LOVE this breakfast casserole. And guess what – it’s not that difficult to make. You can also freeze what is leftover and reheat it another day.

I’ve made this recipe for Christmas brunch, Easter brunch, and have also given it as a meal-train-meal for a family during a health crisis. The kids can even help Dad make it for a Mother’s Day brunch. The possibilities are endless!

Nutrition Protocol Changes

You can easily make this recipe as-is. If there are no nutrition protocols to worry about, the ooey gooey cheese really hits it out of the park. The original version is what I call the comfort style.

If you really want to go down the comfort aisle, you can always purchase a bag of shredded hash browns and a bag of pre-browned meat instead of making it from scratch. I just can’t vouch for the nutritional value of what comes in a bag. I’m just giving you options, my friend.

Since any kind of potato is off-limits for Keto, this is not a Keto-approved recipe, despite the meat, eggs, and cheese.

If you are following the Paleo or Whole30 protocols, these are the recommended changes:

Paleo

Substitute sweet potatoes for white potatoes.

Substitute nut-based milk for the dairy-based milk.

Eliminate the cheese altogether.

 

Whole30

You can use white potatoes or sweet potatoes.

Substitute nut-based milk for the dairy-based milk.

Eliminate the cheese altogether.

 

Always be sure to check your ingredients to ensure compliance.

 

 

 

 

Recipe Tips and Hacks

I recommend using organic ingredients as much as you can, especially the eggs and beef.

ALWAYS use caution when using a grater.

Keep some paper towels on hand to soak up the liquid from the potatoes.

The potato amount is approximate. Use your best judgment.

For this recipe, or any recipe using eggs in a Crock Pot, I recommend using a liner. The clean up is sooooo much easier!

You can break the eggs and whisk the milk in a separate bowl. But honestly, I’ve made this so many times and I literally just break the eggs, add the milk, and whisk together in the Crock Pot. It’s one less bowl to wash. #yesiamthatlazy #youarewelcome

If you don’t have Primal Palate’s Taco Seasoning, or your own favorite taco, chili or Tex-Mex seasoning, then you can add the equivalent of chipotle chili powder, salt, black pepper, paprika, cumin, and garlic powder. Another one of my favorite options is one Simply Organic’s Southwest Taco seasoning mix packet.

Don’t forget to compost your scraps!
