Breakfast Sausage Casserole

I love this casserole for family gatherings, holidays or special occasions.

It’s pretty simple to throw together if you have all the ingredients on hand.

You can even throw the ingredients together the night before so it’s ready to bake in the morning.

This recipe uses tater tots ***she cringes inside*** because they are NOT something I use often or keep stocked in my freezer. We steer clear of processed ready to go foods like this.

My family eats them MAYBE once a year, and this year it’s at Christmas :)

You can TOTALLY substitute them for homemade hash browns or even steamed, salted cauliflower and it would be just as delicious!

Topped with our pork breakfast sausage sautéed with onions, mixed with cheese, our pastured eggs, raw grass fed milk and sprinkled with homegrown Italian Herbs on top.

In our house we use the 90/10 rule. Have you heard of it?

I kinda made it up so I’ll be impressed if you have!

It says that 90% of the time we eat homemade or homegrown, local, organic, non-gmo, raw, gluten free and sugar free.

That leaves us room for 10% of the time to throw in something whacky and still feel good.

So here’s our little bit of whacky Holiday Breakfast Casserole!
