HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm pretty dang excited about this New Year and all the possibility ahead! I've drafted my content calendar for the next two months and by golly, it's going to be fun. To kick things off, I want to offer up a “clean-start” Paleo breakfast casserole. I know that it can be difficult to hunker down each morning in the kitchen to make a brand new, fresh breakfast. I personally love the idea of meal prepping for breakfast specifically! With a healthy breakfast ready to go, my day falls into place much more easily.

Paleo Clean Start Breakfast Casserole with spinach and hash browns

Today's Paleo breakfast casserole is extremely simple and extremely balanced. We have healthy carbohydrate from the potato crust, protein from the eggs, and a good dose of leafy greens from the spinach! Though you can absolutely use fresh ingredients to make the hashed browns and spinach, I wrote this recipe to call for frozen! The frozen hashed browns and frozen spinach help make our kitchen efforts EVEN easier. After a quick prep, you'll have 8 whole servings to feed or family or to store away for a week of healthy breakfasts!

This clean start Paleo breakfast casserole comes together quickly, makes great leftovers, and offers a balanced meal with protein, carbohydrates, and leafy greens in each slice!

  • Author: Cassy
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 35 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 8


  • 2 tablespoons butter, ghee, or coconut oil, divided
  • 1 pound frozen hashed browns
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 pound frozen spinach
  • 18 eggs
  • fresh cracked pepper, to taste

Alternate for the hashed browns if you can't find frozen:

  • 1 pound yellow potatoes, shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder


  1. Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once melted, add the fresh homemade or frozen hashed browns to the pan. Cover and let steam for 4 minutes. Uncover, stir, and let them cook for 5 minutes before stirring again. Stir again and let cool for 5 more minutes, or until the potatoes start to brown and are cooked through. Transfer the cooked hashed browns to a 9 x 13″ glass casserole dish. Using a spatula, spread the potatoes out into one even layer.
  2. Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan and return to medium heat. Once melted, add the frozen spinach and cover. Let the spinach steam for about 4 minutes then uncover, stir, and continue to stir until it's completely melted.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together. Pour the cooked spinach into the eggs and whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture over the hashed browns in the casserole dish and season with the salt.
  4. Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes, or until the center of the dish is firm when shaken.
  5. Let cool for at least 10 minutes and then slice and serve. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Note: the casserole is less likely to stick the longer you let it cool.

    Made some last night for this week, and 1/6th of the casserole dish left me full enough for the whole morning. It was really easy to make, even though I had to make my own hashed browns, and swap out frozen spinach for fresh, as I couldn’t find any at the store!

    Overall, I now have breakfast for an entire week, which is super convenient for meal planning.

  2. Jeannine says:

    Made this yesterday in preparation for this weeks breakfast. It was a simple recipe to follow and very tasty. This made my meal prep for breakfast super simple!!

  3. Kim says:

    I’ve been enjoying some of the recipes you have posted, thanks! But I have a question-I have been reading about Paleo lately, and everything I have read has said that white potatoes is not Paleo?

  4. Virginia says:

    I really can’t wait to try this! This Irish girl is sooooo happy to have potatoes in the morning. My Fed and Fit book is on its way from Amazon and I’m so excited! It has been on my wishlist for months and months 🙂 Thank you!!

  6. Michele says:

    Hi! I used a 9X13 baking dish and 1lb of hasbrowns BARELY covered the bottom with a thin layer. The photo looks a little thicker, hmm. Wondering if anyone ran into this.

    Where can I get the nutritional info from

  9. Anna says:

    This is a tasty dish. I added 1 lb of crumbled breakfast sausage(gluten and sugar free) to the mix and it was really spot on. Easy to make. It took about 15 min longer to bake.

    Pretty easy to make, however we felt it was extremely bland. Maybe add garlic or spices to bring it more to life
