Easy Primal Breakfast Caserole

I love breakfast and all foods associated with it.  I also love breakfast food anytime of day and am constantly on the lookout for recipes that are great make-ahead options to incorporate my favorite flavors at any meal.  This crockpot casserole is so incredibly easy and it reheats great.  And just think, how amazing would it be to wake up tomorrow with the smell of maple sausage permitting your home and breakfast ready and waiting for you?  Pretty awesome.  Pretty awesome.

Primal Breakfast Casserole

4 medium sized sweet potatoes
1/2 yellow onion
1 pound of ground breakfast sausage*
1/4 cup maple syrup
12 eggs
1 cup milk or unsweetened almond milk
1 tablespoon pizza seasoning
1 tablespoon kosher salt
15 grinds of freshly cracked black pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (optional)

- Wash, peel and shred sweet potatoes using a course cheese grater
- Finely dice onion
- Combine sweet potato, onion, pizza seasoning, salt and pepper until well incorporated
- In a 6-quart crockpot, create a layer using 1/4 of your potato mixture
- In your next layer, place 1/4 of your ground/crumbled sausage and drizzle with maple syrup
- Sprinkle a thin layer of cheddar cheese
- Repeat this process until you've formed 4 layers in the crockpot
- Whisk together your eggs and milk and pour the mixture over the top of your crockpot layers
- Cook on high for 6 hours or on low for 9 hours
- Store any uneaten casserole in the refrigerator for up to 4 days in an airtight container

*you can also remove the casing from sausage links and crumble the meat inside as well
