Paleo Overnight Breakfast Casserole

Christmas is in three days! I can’t believe we are almost there – December totally flew by. On Christmas mornings, it is fun to just sit back and relax – which is why this Paleo Overnight Breakfast Casserole is the perfect meal! It can be prepped the night before and left in the fridge. Then simply pop it in the oven (while you open gifts!) and enjoy a delicious and healthy breakfast for your whole family.

Having a healthier diet mindset is a great way to make sure you’re eating well. You will see in the recipe that instead of regular potatoes, there are sweet potatoes. As well, this is a grain and sugar-free breakfast – which is always a good idea. Most breakfast dishes have heaps of sugar, dairy, and gluten – for example: cinnamon rolls, most cereals, and pancakes. While they are definitely delicious, they can really hurt our digestive systems. And I don’t know about you, but I don’t want my stomach hurting on Christmas Day!

This meal has a lot of protein to leave you feeling satisfied throughout the festivities without a sugar crash. Once you take a bite, you won’t even realize it’s ‘healthy’ because you’ll be blown away by a savory blend starring eggs, sausage, sweet potatoes, and a flavorful cast of supporting ingredients. Enjoy!

  • 1 lb Nitrate Free Sausage

  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 4 Sweet Potatoes, peeled and cubed

  • 9 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • Salt and Pepper for taste


  • Cook sausage in a large pan over medium heat, stirring to crumble. Add spices, onion, green pepper, and sweet potatoes. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Spread sweet potato and sausage mixture in the bottom.
  • Whisk together the eggs and coconut milk. Pour over sausage mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • In the morning, remove from the refrigerator and let sit on the counter while oven preheats to 350 degrees. Bake, covered with foil, for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 10 minutes.


You can also bake this immediately! Just reduce the overall cooking time to 35 minutes (25 with foil and 10 without).

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
