You can browse my site for about 3 seconds to discover how much I like breakfast foods. This Whole30 Chorizo Hash Brown Bake is one of my new favorites! It’s so easy to whip up which makes it perfect for your Meal Prep Sundays. It is paleo and Whole30 compliant and it’s seriously so delicious that I ate it for three days straight and still could have had it again.
I have another Whole30 breakfast casserole recipe here which is also a staple in my meal prep rotation. The difference with this recipe is the tasty hash brown crust and spicier flavor profile. To get a nice hash brown crust, I simply thaw out a bag of frozen hash browns, mixed in some salt, pepper and ghee and press it down into the bottom of a baking dish. You can shred your own potato to do this but I am just a girl who loves convenience and if I can find compliant frozen hash browns, then that’s definitely what I am gong to do. I buy my Whole30 compliant hashbrowns from Sprouts. You can check out my other favorite Whole30 compliant Sprouts items here!
Your potato crust can go in the oven while you prep the rest of your ingredients. Once the chorizo and peppers are ready to go you layer the chorizo mixture over the potatoes then top with your egg mixture. Back in the oven it goes and you have yourself a delicious Whole30 compliant Chorizo Hash Brown Bake that is perfect for breakfast. Or lunch. Or dinner if you're like me and can eat breakfast foods at any time.
The stay of this recipe is the chorizo. Chorizo has so much flavor that you dont need a lot of seasoning or extra oils in this recipe. One thing that was hard for me to find during my first Whole30 was compliant chorizo. My two faves are from Mulay’s and Pederson’s Farms. Both brands also have great sugar free options for breakfast sausage and Italian sausage. I used Mulay’s sausage in my recipe for Zuppa Toscana and it’s one of my faves!

What size pan did you use for 1X
Tink: Regarding your note even though a year late: I made 6 servings (1X). The 9x13 pan spread out the potato crust to a thin layer, so I sized down to 7.5x11 pan before I cooked it. It looks like 9x13 would be okay for 12 servings (2X) or for 1X if you wanted thinner servings.
Recipe was great!

Curious if coconut milk would accomplish the same consistency. I'm allergic to almonds so can't go that route.
Yes that works! You can also leave it out. I just use it for a little more creaminess to the eggs but its not 100% necessary
Have you ever made these into little egg cups? I’m curious if that would work...
I haven't but I bet it would work great!
Can you prepare and freeze ahead of time, and if so how would you do this?
I have not tried that so I'm not sure but let me know how it works out if you do!
