Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray or grease a 3-quart baking dish with coconut oil.
  • Cook sausage in heavy large skillet over medium-high heat until brown, breaking into small pieces with a spoon or spatula, about 5 minutes.
    Brown sausage
  • While sausage cooks, make cashew cream. Put ¾-cup raw cashews in a 2-cup measuring cup. Pour enough warm or hot water over cashews to fill measuring cup. Let cashews sit in water while cooking sausage, then blend cashews and water in a blender on high speed until completely smooth.
  • Sprinkle arrowroot over sausage, stirring to coat, then add in 1 ½ cups cashew cream (or 1 ½ cups coconut milk/cream, whisked). Cook until mixture thickens and comes to boil, stirring occasionally, about 3-5 minutes. Add plenty of fresh black pepper.
    Sprinkle arrowroot and cashew cream over
  • In a medium bowl, whisk eggs and add remaining cashew cream (or coconut milk/cream), spices, salt, and ⅓ of the green onions.
    Whisk together eggs, cream, green onions, and seasonings
  • In a baking dish, spread hashbrowns evenly, and sprinkle with a pinch of salt. Top with ⅓ of green onions, then sausage mixture, then egg mixture. Bake 45-50 minutes then sprinkle with remaining green onions. A knife inserted in the center won't come out clean because of the creamy sauce, but the surface should be firm.
    Layer casserole and bake
  • Cut into squares and serve.

Notes

  • Coconut Milk/Cream: You can use one 13.5-ounce can coconut milk or cream instead of cashews, if preferred. Use 1 ½ cups (12 ounces) coconut milk/cream in the sausage cream sauce and the remainder (1 ½ ounces) in the eggs. Whisk coconut milk/cream before using. 
  • Use frozen hash browns - they're easier to find Whole30 compliant - and let them thaw a little ahead of making this Whole30 breakfast. If you'd rather, you can also shred your own hash browns from whole potatoes.
