One of my favorite ways to simplify meal planning and keep food costs low is to schedule breakfast for dinner about once a week. To be honest, actual breakfast for my kids during the week is usually a muffin or cereal bar and some fruit. But when I’m making breakfast for dinner, I’ve got more space to make something a little bit different—like this sausage egg bake.
Easy Sausage Egg Bake Recipe
This sausage egg bake is as simple as it sounds! It has just a few ingredients: sausage, eggs, cheese, and salt and pepper. If you’re feeling really decadent, you can put in a few splashes of cream or milk as you whisk the eggs, but that’s not even necessary. The final product comes out cheesy and delicious.
Another great thing about this sausage egg bake is that unlike many breakfast casseroles, it doesn’t include bread, potatoes, or some kind of crust. That makes it perfect for gluten-free and keto diets!
I like to serve our sausage egg bake with fruit and pancakes. You could use a pancake mix or reheat frozen pancakes, but my favorite from-scratch pancakes are these Fluffy Pancakes. Alternatively, these Cream Cheese Pancakes are low-carb and gluten-free.
Dinner shouldn’t have to be complicated. Throw the sausage egg bake in the oven while you whip up some pancakes, and set a big bowl of grapes out on the table. Then save any leftovers for an easy breakfast the following day!
Bonus: This is also a great meal to serve for guests—I’ve yet to meet anyone who couldn’t find something to like about this meal!
