Make this delish Paleo casserole for your next brunch or your family on Christmas Morning. Everyone will love it so much that you will hate the fact you shared it since there won't be any leftovers after they get through with it!
Ingredients
  • 4 sweet potatoes, peeled and shredded (I know I have 5 in the picture but disregard 5th one)
  • 4-5 sausages; about 1 and ½ lbs (I used turkey Italian sausage but you can use whatever protein you like, chicken or pork with whatever flavor you fancy as well)
  • 1 large or 2 small yellow onions, peeled and chopped
  • 10 eggs
  • 1 cup of coconut milk (from can)
  • ½ teaspoon of sage
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a glass 7x12 inch/ 3 quart Pyrex baking dish.
  3. Grate the raw sweet potatoes and then place them in the bottom of the greased dish. They are fresh and not cooked, I know it sounds weird but it will cook in the oven. Again, you can manually grate the sweet potatoes with a cheese grater but you I warn you that you may need to put a little more than just back into it. Your hand WILL get tired, I promise you. I started grating it manually until I realized I could save a lot of time (and sweat) and grate the sweet potato in the food processor like I do when I grate my cauliflower to make cauliflower rice. Hallelujah for kitchen appliances!
  4. Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat in a pan. Chop the onion and squeeze the sausage out of the casing and cook together for about 7-8 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and cook until sausage is no longer pink and onions are translucent.
  5. Layer the sausage and onion on top of the grated sweet potatoes in the Pyrex pan.
  6. Put the eggs, sage, and coconut milk in a mixing bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour this liquid mixture on top of the sausage and onions and you will see the liquid mixture ooze into the shredded sweet potato.
  7. Bake uncovered for 40-45 minutes.
