Paleo Whole30 Breakfast Casserole

Paleo Breakfast Casserole (Whole30)

About a week ago, I was itching for meatloaf.  My wife hates meatloaf, and I love it.  At least that’s how we remember it going.  I did some research, picked a recipe, added my own touch and made meatloaf with a side of sweet potato fries.  My wife loved it, but I really didn’t.  Something wasn’t right.

I moved on.

My quest for the perfect meatloaf was put to bed.

Fast forward to Monday.  Not just any Monday.  Day 1 of Whole30 Monday.  Breakfast has never been my strong suit.  I like to grab a breakfast bar as I head to the pool but that’s not going to happen on Whole30 and swimming on an empty stomach is just a bad plan.  If I am going to succeed on Whole30, breakfast and lunch are a must.

If you’re not familiar with Whole30, my wife summarizes it here:

I discovered a recipe for breakfast patties that reminded me a little of my turkey apple sausage bites but I didn’t feel like standing at the stovetop making patties.  Then I found an awesome breakfast casserole recipe on the same site. Original link is the recipe, below. 

But it’s so much more than breakfast!

It’s a breakfast casserole in the morning and a mind-blowing meatloaf if you eat it once the sun has set.  We ate this dish for breakfast on Monday, lunch on Tuesday and dinner on Wednesday.  Pair it with a large green salad and it’s a great Whole30 meal.

So, it’s win win.  And it’s about time for me to place an order from KOL Foods for more grass fed beef.
