Time isn’t always of the essence when it comes to mornings around my house. Whether it’s getting my kid ready for the day – or myself, I don’t love spending a ton of time in the kitchen. But that doesn’t mean we don’t make time to eat. Even on a gluten-free dairy-free diet, breakfast time is important in our house.
If you think that just because you’re gluten and dairy-free that you can’t enjoy the ease of throwing some ingredients together and tossing it in the oven while you continue on your frantic pace to move things along in the morning, you’re wrong. Breakfast casseroles are an awesome pseudo shortcut to getting a tasty and hearty breakfast to the table without having to spend tons of time actually IN the kitchen.
You might think it’s tricky to actually have a gluten and dairy-free breakfast casserole, because so many of them use bread, milk, and cheese in the ingredients. And you’re right – it definitely takes a little bit of know-how to make the proper swaps to make it work. BUT it’s totally do-able – and I’m determined to show you in this recipe roundup blog post.
Inside this gluten-free dairy-free breakfast recipe roundup, I’ve gathered up some of the best recipes I could find that fit the needs of a hearty breakfast full of things like eggs, bacon, or sausage – without all that bread, cheese, and milk that we stay away from on a gluten-free dairy-free diet.
