Italian Sheet Pan Breakfast (egg, gluten, & dairy free)

I get asked a lot for recipes for egg free breakfasts. Eggs are kind of a “go to” in the paleo, low carb, and gluten free worlds. But many people have allergies to eggs, need to avoid them because of sensitivities, or just plain don’t like them!

I actually love eggs, but there are times when I am not in the mood for eggs…again. If I am making breakfast and eggs sound so blah to me, I won’t eat them. I’m a firm believer in listening to your body. Now, this is different than saying “my body says I should never eat vegetables”. 😉 That is likely your MIND, not your body. Most of us could use to eat MORE veggies. But truly listening to your body when it is telling you not to eat something or to stop eating something is really important.

That said, who doesn’t want to shake up the breakfast routine a bit at times? I love roasted veggies and Italian sausage so the mix of these seemed like the perfect idea. This is a great breakfast to make up on Sunday and eat all week long! Just cook it up and divide it into containers to reheat each morning. Plus this is a great way to start your day with a nice serving of protein & lots of veggies!

Of course this meal also works amazing for lunch or dinner – so make it any time. Remember breakfast is just a meal like the others. There’s no need to have “breakfast” food. I often eat leftovers from dinner for breakfast. It’s all about changing the mindset!

Instructions

  • Sprinkle the basil, parsley, oregano, salt, & pepper over the veggies.
  • Prick the sausages with a fork, and place on top of the veggies.
