Healthy Hash Brown Casserole

Hash Brown Casserole is a mainstay in the American Midwest; it's known for being delicious, but also unhealthy! It gets a total revamp and healthy makeover in this new and improved recipe. Elizabeth's version is gluten-free, dairy-free, and big on flavor. This crowd pleaser makes an excellent breakfast or brunch, and keep in the refrigerator all week for a simple yet hearty meal any time of day.

Serves: 8-12 servings

Why It's Good For You:

This protein-packed casserole will not only please the crowd, but it will keep you full and your belly happy. The gluten-free, dairy-free nature of this dish helps keep your gut health in tip-top shape while still providing the satiating feelings of comfort food. Whole eggs are rich in choline, which contributes to brain and memory development, yet about 90% of Americans do not get enough of it. Eggs are also an excellent source of vitamin D, vitamin B12, phosphorus, and riboflavin. The garlic, onion, and pepper provide even more antioxidants as well as fiber. This dish is inexpensive, absolutely delicious, and will convert even the most skeptical of people to lean towards healthier options.
