Whole30 Day 5 - Breakfast

Breakfast casserole!

Approximately 4 servings

1 pound ground breakfast sausage or other ground meat
3 turnips, peeled and grated (a food processor works well for this)(I hand grated then squeezed the excess water out.)
4 eggs, beaten
3 scallions, chopped

Sauté sausage, breaking it up into small pieces with a spoon or spatula, until almost cooked through.

Mix the sausage with the rest of the ingredients.

Spoon into a 8×8 baking pan.

When ready to cook, heat oven to 400 degrees. Bake covered for 45 minutes then uncover the pan and bake for 25 minutes more. Let cool 15-20 minutes so the casserole sets before cutting into it.

I calculated the nutrition info, and I now wish I could have found a better sausage to use because the sausage in this makes one serving about 500 calories. If I can find some chicken sausage or something that would probably cut down on the calories.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this since I have never had turnips before. It looked pretty burnt when I took it out of the oven, but it tasted really good! I was surprised! It was a little spicy, I think the turnips are spicy maybe? I don't really know. But it was really good and the reviews said it reheats really well, so we'll see tomorrow if it tastes as good as it did today.


  1. looks quite tasty as a dinner idea with some veggies on the side, not the kind of thing I could eat in the AM, but I'm not a breakfast person.

  2. I'm going to have to try that!
