This Roasted Veggie Breakfast Casserole is the marriage of a sheet pan dinner with a breakfast casserole. Veggies and breakfast sausage are browned/roasted together in the oven before they're transformed into a breakfast that can be enjoyed all week.

This casserole is BIG …just the way I like it. If you, too, enjoy a hearty breakfast but don't always have the time (or energy) to spend making it each morning, I highly encourage you consider a breakfast casserole.  This Roasted Veggie Breakfast Casserole, especially. We have a ton of other breakfast casseroles on the blog already, and I also highly recommend this Clean Start Paleo Breakfast Casserole as a personal favorite as well!

Here's how it goes: grab an abundance of lovely vegetables that strike your interest! For this version, I grabbed some eggplant, asparagus, bell peppers, and purple (technically, “red”) onions. Give those veggies a rough chop and then spread them out on 1 to 2 baking sheets. If you're pro-breakfast meats, this is where this casserole gets even MORE fun! Grab a pound of breakfast sausage and drop it in little clumps (raw) over the veggies. This way, the sausage will brown while the veggies roast and the whole happy family will come out of the oven ready to be tossed in a casserole dish. No need to brown sausage elsewhere, you can knock that out in the oven!

As soon as the sausage is browned and the veggies are wilted and looking scrumptious, pull them from the oven and scrape into a casserole dish. Crack your eggs, give them a whisk, and pour over the top. From HERE, you can choose your own adventure! If you're pro-cheese, add cheese! If you've got a favorite spice blend, use that on top! I chose the Bagel Balanced Bites Blend for the top of mine.

Bake the eggs until they're set, let it cool just a bit, and then serve up your Roasted Veggie Breakfast Casserole squares. Note that unless you're feeding 10 people, you're probably going to have leftovers. This keeps/reheats REALLY well (I just use the microwave), but you could also freeze a few squares. To freeze, I recommend wrapping individual servings in parchment paper or dropping them into bags.

I hope you enjoy this sheet pan prep turned casserole idea!

    So stupid question, the only 9×13 pan I have is just a regular pyrex 9×13 glass casserole dish…is that deep enough? 2 dozen eggs and 2 pounds of meat sounds like it may not fit…I also have a a regular depth 11×15 glass casserole dish, would that work better? I’m just picturing a TON of egg mixture 🙂

    Thanks Cassy, love your recipes 🙂

    Can I substitute mushrooms to use instead of eggplant? Can I add winter squash or substitute it for something else?
