This savory egg paleo breakfast casserole is the perfect way to start the day. It is jam-packed full of tasty vegetables and crispy bits of bacon.
One thing that I love about casseroles is that you can easily feed a crowd without a huge amount of effort. The standard recipe for this dish will feed about 6-8 people depending on whether you’re feeding big eaters or not.
This casserole is also perfect for anyone who is on a gluten-free diet or just looking for a tasty casserole to cook up for breakfast. It goes well with something light on the side such as a basic green salad. With that said it’s also perfect just by itself.
If you end up with leftovers, then they can be stored in the fridge for a few days. Keep in mind egg doesn’t reheat that great but still makes for quick and easy fulfilling meal for later on. Personally, I would avoid freezing it altogether as it’s likely to go a weird texture and taste once reheated.

Paleo Breakfast Casserole Recipe
- 8 eggs
- 1 & 1/3 cups coconut cream
- 500g (17 ½ oz.) bacon, diced
- 2 sweet potatoes, diced
- 1 onion, sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- Salt & Pepper
- First, preheat an oven to 180°C/350°F
- In a fry-pan over medium heat, add the bacon. Cook until it starts to crisp up.
- Add the sweet potatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes.
- Add the onion, red bell pepper, and garlic. Cook for a further 5-10 minutes, making sure the sweet potato is slightly cooked (A knife sticks into it easily but doesn’t mash).
- In a greased casserole dish, add the vegetable and bacon mix.
- In a bowl, beat together the eggs and coconut cream.
- Pour the egg mix over the vegetable & bacon mix.
- Place the casserole in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the egg is thoroughly cooked.
- Serve & Enjoy
- You can also do this casserole in a slow cooker or crock pot rather than the oven. I would recommend cooking for about 4 hours on low.
- The bacon can be replaced with something like pork mince or even sliced sausages. If you’re vegetarian or just feeling like a meatless dish, then something like chickpeas is also a great replacement. You will need to use an oil such as coconut oil to fry in since you won’t have the fat from the bacon.
- You can swap the coconut cream out for coconut milk if you want to be a bit healthier. However, the egg mix won’t be as rich and creamy.
