Back by popular demand, we’re coming in hot with a collection of some of our favorite Whole30 egg-free breakfast recipes!
Eggs are a common breakfast staple, but they’re not for everyone. Intolerances and allergies are on the rise, and many people choose to avoid them for dietary or budget-related reasons. Additionally, some just can’t stand the taste of nature’s original boneless chicken.
We always encourage Whole30-ers to think of breakfast as “meal one.” Things like leftover stuffed sweet potatoes, your favorite Whole30 soups, chilis, or salads work fantastic as your first morning meal. But, we also understand the desire for a comforting, breakfasty-breakfast and know that egg-free versions can be more challenging to find.
Our recipe roundup includes a variety of mouthwatering Meal 1 options that will keep you full and bring all those familiar breakfast vibes — and a few outside-of-the-box options too. So, whether you’re in the mood for a hearty breakfast hash or are looking for something to make ahead of time to grab on the go, we’ve got you covered. These Whole30 eggless breakfast recipes are easy to make and, most importantly, delicious. Let’s get cooking!

Loaded Breakfast Potatoes
From our recipe author, Autumn, “This recipe came was of my husband doing an egg-free Whole30. It definitely took some creativity to get outside the Whole30 “eggs for breakfast” mentality. His favorite breakfasts were hashes like this one, full of protein and veggies. I loved it when my 6’4” 14-year-old, after eating this for breakfast, said, “Wow, I am actually full!” It goes so quickly in our house, we have to portion it so everyone gets some.”
