Paleo Breakfast Casserole with Chorizo

Chorizo Egg Bake

Planning your menu for next week? Consider this tasty Paleo Breakfast Casserole with Chorizo and you’ll have enough leftovers for breakfast to last the entire week. It’s good served hot straight outta the oven, cold or warmed up the next day or two or three.

A while back Jeff & I decided to start a new habit. After several days and weeks of not leaving the house we decided to make Friday morning/afternoon’s a little more special. We started going out for breakfast and spending time together (without our computer screens in front of us). :)

One Friday morning we happened to wake up pretty early, by our standards, and instead of going out I decided to make this Paleo breakfast casserole. For some reason I had a taste for hash browns too and I made a Paleo Turnip Hash Casserole to serve on the side.

With the looks of the snow outside and having just spent some time away in Miami we won’t be going out for breakfast today. Instead we’ve got a full weekend ahead, celebrating my dad and sister’s birthday and spending time catching up with friends.

Whatever you’ve got going on, take some time to relax and enjoy the weekend with a home cooked meal. :)
