One of my favorite holiday memories is a cozy and delicious breakfast my mom would prepare each year for our family to enjoy before we opened our stockings: a big breakfast casserole, cut fruit, sausage, coffee. This year, you’re likely limiting your holiday gatherings to immediate-household only, and forgoing many of your favorite traditions and celebrations. A leisurely and tasty breakfast with your household is something you can do, so we’ve created this Whole30 veggie breakfast casserole recipe with that in mind.
This casserole is packed with texture and flavor—creamy roasted butternut squash, steamed broccoli and diced red bell pepper. It’s sure to satisfy and nourish, and we hope it becomes a favorite recipe that you serve for years to come. – Shanna, Director of Digital Content
