Turkey Bacon Breakfast Casserole

Our Turkey Bacon Breakfast Casserole is the perfect way to start your day.

Patients frequently ask what they can make for breakfast. Although we recommend avoiding eggs during the Initial Wellness Plan phase, if a person is not allergic or sensitive to eggs, we add them back into their eating plan.

As anti-inflammatory diet recipes go, this healthy breakfast casserole recipe presents an alternative to the typical breakfast casserole that includes cheese and or milk, and pork products. As we recommend continuing to avoid dairy and pork ongoing, due to pro-inflammatory and other health concerns, this casserole has a meaty, hearty quality that works for breakfast or a light lunch. We tried it here at the office on top of greens tossed with a tangy mixed greens salad dressed with a tart Dijon sauce.

Nutritionally, the combination of sweet potatoes, onion, thyme, and turkey bacon provides Beta-carotene, fiber, vitamins B-6, C, folate, the minerals phosphorus, manganese, and potassium as well as phenolic antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein.
