Paleo Breakfast Casserole

Raise your hand if your March Madness bracket is completely busted.  Me, me, me!  Between Michigan State and Kansas both falling, I only have two of the Final Four teams in my bracket; definitely not the makings of a Madness bracket champion this year.  However, we are once again doing March Madness at Iron Tribe!  I’m currently in the Elite Eight and am pretty nervous about my match-up this week.  I’m facing a fierce competitor and I believe it’s a toss-up to decide who will advance.

In preparation for this showdown, I got a deep-tissue massage.  I’ve been having issues with my lower back/glutes on just the right side (weird!).  This area has proven to be incredibly tricky to work out and has been pestering me for a while.  One of the Iron Tribe coaches has been insisting I get a massage for a while now, and I finally took her advice.  I think it paid off!  I saw a massage therapist a friend recommended, and the session was very therapeutic.  I’m hoping the effects are lasting.  I don’t want anything getting in the way of the display of will, determination, and sheer physical strength I will rain down on my opponent tomorrow! Just kidding… Or, am I???

On a different note, I am finally getting around to sharing my breakfast casserole recipe.  I have had numerous people ask me for this one, so I figure it’s high time I post it!  The good thing about casseroles is they are super easy, relatively quick, and completely customizable.  As much as I would love to load my casserole up with veggies, I know I would be met with an upturned nose from the hubs.  You know how there are plenty of moms out there who brag about sneaking vegetables into their children’s food?  I need them to teach me their ways!  Anyway, this casserole could easily take on more veggies than just the sweet potatoes if that’s your taste.  I will also sometimes include cheese for a primal casserole, but I can tolerate dairy pretty well.  The best part of this dish is that it reheats really well.  I heat mine up at work on weekday mornings when I am inevitably running late and dine at my desk.  Do you all have any favorite make-ahead breakfasts for those busy weekday mornings?
