Dairy-Free Egg Casserole

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here

If you need a dairy-free egg casserole to feed a crowd or something to prep for busy mornings, this Dairy Free Egg Casserole is the perfect dish. I’ve made this for Christmas, Easter, brunch, and as a meal prep for busy weekday mornings. You can also swap the sausage for chopped bacon or ham if you’d like.

For vegetarian options, you can replace the sausage with more chopped vegetables like spinach, mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes, or a combination of all of them. On Christmas I like to use half green pepper and half red to make it look festive. You can always add in about 1/2 cup of your favorite dairy-free shredded “cheese” if you’d like.

To prep this dish the night before, you can cook the sausages and the vegetables, and refrigerate them overnight. Assemble and bake your casserole in the morning.

Leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for a few days, and you can reheat individual slices in the oven or the microwave.

    @milkfreemom – SO-o-o delicious! I made it in a larger pan for a potluck of 20+ senior citizen friends, doubling the eggs and almond milk, and they loved it! The only wishful comment was from a friend with serious heart problems when she would have had it if it was sausage-free. Actually she did eat a small square. 😉 I added rehydrated gourmet mushrooms, plus I mixed the sausage and veggies together before layering them over the hash browns. Super happy with the results. My husband and I are looking forward to sharing this awesome breakfast casserole with our kids & grandkids when they come to visit.

      Thank you so much for the feedback, I’m glad you liked it! You could substitute the sausage if you’d like with something more heart healthy, like a chicken sausage which is lower in fat. I hope you’re grandkids enjoy it as much as we do!
