This gluten free, grain free Sausage, Egg, and Biscuit Casserole is the perfect dish for Christmas morning or any other special day.
Breakfast is the most winning meal in this house.
Yesterday I had a conversation with my son that went like this:
Him: Mom, I’m soooooo hungry.
Me: Still? I just gave you a huge snack 4 minutes ago?
Him: Yes mom, I’m still hungry. What can I have?
Me: You can have a piece of cheese or some fruit!
Him: ::blank stare:: How about breakfast?
Me:(out loud) It’s 3 in the afternoon! (in my head) Why didn’t I think of that?!?!
Needless to say, I wanted a special casserole that I could make for special occasions. It had to be hearty and delicious, be free of gluten and grains, and have a dairy-free option. I really wanted something reminiscent of biscuits and gravy, but I also didn’t want to create a lot of dishes or make a lot of extra work. The result was a sausage, egg, and biscuit casserole that would be delicious with a little gravy on top should anyone feel inclined.
