Sausage and Sun-Dried Tomato Whole30 Breakfast Casserole

Today, we’ve got something delicious for you: A tasty Whole30 breakfast casserole recipe featuring Whole30 Approved olive oil from our newest partner, California Olive Ranch®.

Whether you’re whipping up a frittata or marinating chicken to throw in the air fryer, California Olive Ranch has the perfect Extra Virgin Olive Oil blend. Founded by a group of families more than 20 years ago, California Olive Ranch set out to create the best EVOO in the game (and keep it affordable!) with olives grown, harvested, and processed on California soil. They have since expanded with their globally-inspired Destination Series blends, but their focus remains the same. Throughout every step of the process, they put quality, sustainability—and their people—first. Oh, and their olive oils? You can taste that goodness in every drop.

We wanted to show you how to put three popular California Olive Ranch blends to work in your Whole30 recipes. The Everyday EVOO is a jack-of-all-trades, the Miller’s Blend is a finishing oil with a burst of flavor, and the Mild Blend is subtle enough for the most delicate recipe. Here’s how to make the most of your new favorite olive oil. 

The Jack-Of-All-Trades: 100% California Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This blend is their flagship oil made from olives grown exclusively in California. It’s a well-rounded and versatile kitchen staple that works for almost anything: marinades, grilling, and sautéing … and is especially good in this Whole30 breakfast casserole. Snag the recipe below!

Sausage and Sun-Dried Tomato Whole30 Breakfast Casserole

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Bake 25 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


For the pork sausage

  • 1 pound of ground pork
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp. dried fennel seeds

For the casserole

  • 1 Tbs. 100% Everday California Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 cups baby kale
  • 1 pound of pork sausage see above for ingredients


  • PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • MAKE the pork sausage. Set a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add a drizzle of the oil to warm, and then add ground pork, breaking it up with a wooden spoon. Season with sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder, dried oregano, smoked paprika and dried fennel seeds and sauté, continuing to break up, until the pork is cooked through and has begun to brown, about 12-15 minutes. Drain the excess grease from the pork.
  • ASSEMBLE the casserole. Grease a 9×13” oven-proof baking dish with oil. Crack 6 eggs in a large bowl and whisk well. Add baby kale and whisk again. Season with sea salt. Pour egg and kale mixture into your baking dish and then crack the remaining 6 eggs directly into the baking dish so that they are evenly distributed in the dish. Scatter sun-dried tomatoes and crumbled pork sausage throughout the dish.
  • BAKE in the oven until the whisked eggs have set, about 25 minutes. The whole eggs will be mostly set with soft yolks, creating a creamy texture when you bite into them. Allow your casserole to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving, storing any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
