Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? It’s also often the most rushed meal of the day, so we’re more prone to making bad choices. Enter these delicious and satisfying paleo breakfast casserole recipes! Use these to prep your morning meal ahead of time, which helps you stick to your healthy eating plan and not get distracted by quick, on-the-go options.
Casserole is also the perfect canvas for including a balanced ratio of nutrients to help keep you sustained throughout the day. The focus is on adequate protein, some healthy fats and a little veggie action to begin the day. This should ensure focus and avoiding any ‘hanger’ that sneaks up well before lunch time – you know the feeling!

You know you want to bite into a slice of bacon-infused awesomeness when you wake up, so throw this into the meal prep mix. I also love the addition of green onions in this. If you don’t do milk, replace it with coconut milk or almond milk.
This recipe is simple. The hard part is making it look this delicious. This is like your classic greasy spoon diner breakfast packed into one dish, and quite a bit better for you. The best part is all the shredded sweet potato you can’t see hiding out beneath those sausage rounds.
This recipe is perfect for using up wilting produce before a big shop. It’s budget-friendly, and totally customisable. This is a great recipe for the minimalist who likes their meat (i.e. bacon) and potatoes. Did someone say Spanish tortilla?

The best part of waking up is something spicy on your plate. Seriously, rise and shine with a little (or a lot) of buffalo bake. It’s like buffalo chicken dip but better (and totally suitable for meal time).
This southwest breakfast casserole really takes on the regional taste with ground chicken, green chilli, sweet onion and red pepper.
Lox with cream cheese on a bagel is the quintessential on-the-go breakfast, and for good reason – it’s good. This egg bake does the trick and takes on those flavours without all the heavy bread. Fresh dill, green onions and shredded zucchini give this a little pop of colour, and it’s just perfect if you ask me.
If you want to go above and beyond to A+ student status, you’ll add this to your morning routine ASAP. With all the veggies, you can’t go wrong, and you’ll put a little pep in your step.
Undoubtedly, one of the best forms of casserole is shepherd’s pie. This breakfast version has bacon, and it’s topped off with avocado, salsa, cheese and whatever else you want, really. You can bend the rules a little.
Shakshuka eggs are baked, cracked into tomato sauce. Underneath it all is a pile of breakfast miracles, with a rather simple list of ingredients including diced sweet potato for a little texture and fresh herbs for some serious flavour.
The name says it all. These eggs are blended with coconut cream and avocado to make the texture creamier than ever, and there’s so much good stuff packed in between the lines. This will satisfy the hungriest bellies.
Green chiles, ground pork, chipotle pepper, smoked paprika and coriander come together for a spin on classic chile relleno – poblano roasted, stuffed with cheese, battered and deep-fried. Needless to say, this is a bit better for you.
Nothing says breakfast like a skillet full of bacon, eggs and grits. Are you drooling over this, or what? These paleo grits are grain-free and are mostly made with butternut squash and nuts so you’ll still get that classic hearty base.
