Eric and I had this whole30 breakfast casserole for the first time a few years ago at our friends’ house in Arizona when we were visiting for their wedding. This whole30 breakfast casserole recipe made such an impression that I remembered it years later! AND y’all know I’m all about EASY whole30 meals so this one fits the bill because it’s a cook once, and eat it all week situation.
Eric and I host an annual New Year’s Brunch, typically the first weekend after New Year’s. It’s a great way to catch up with neighbors and friends after the holidays and now our neighborhood friends know they can look forward to that time without having to bring a thing. Although, we were surprised by a legit King’s Cake flown in from a NOLA bakery by some of our neighbors this year.
On a side note, I’ve heard several people mention recently on Instagram, on Facebook, and in person that they feel their life is “boring,” and they don’t have a lot going on. If you feel that way sometimes I want to encourage you that you are not alone but also help take a look why so many people have this feeling of discontentment.
Eric and I are very fortunate that both of our personalities lend to hosting and entertaining and we really work well together as a team. Whether it be hosting a brunch, inviting another couple over for dinner, or going out to a concert, it seems like people don’t take the initiative to do those things as much as they used to.
Is it perhaps that we are all so stuck staring down at our phones and seeing what others are doing that we don’t realize days or weeks or even months have gone by without us inviting a friend to lunch or coffee? Think about the last time you asked your friend/mom/sister etc to go do something. If you can’t think of the last time, let me challenge you to pick up your phone and text or call them to ask if they’re free one day or night this week.
I bet if you start to make the effort more, you’ll find that your calendar fills up faster than you think and that you don’t feel “bored” or “discontent” as much anymore. I really hope this encourages you outside your comfort zone as we start 2018. If you need some more help with this, I’d highly recommend checking out my post about how to make mom friends.
God has created us to crave relationships. He is the only one that can fill the ultimate void that our soul longs for, but he also created the body of the church to help encourage us along the way. Because, news flash, life isn’t easy and we need people to come alongside us to make this world more fulfilling. I’m pretty sure I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know here. 😉 But sometimes, it’s nice to have a reminder, am I right?!
OK, ok, now back to this delicious Whole30 breakfast casserole recipe. Ha! I told Eric that I wanted to have something on hand that I could eat without any guilt other than the fruit so that’s when we decided to make the Whole30 breakfast casserole we’d fallen in love with years ago. Our friends couldn’t believe that it was Whole30 approved because it tastes so good and flavorful. In fact, I’ve even been asked for the recipe several times.
What’s so great about this Whole30 breakfast casserole recipe is that it’s super filling with the sweet potatoes + meats + eggs and it also makes a great big pan so that you can microwave a small piece each morning for breakfast on the go!
