Sausage, Kale, and Red Pepper Breakfast Casserole

What a busy week! But it's been awesome. I started coaching again and I've been driving a tractor to help out my dad so I've had some VERY EARLY mornings! Typically I take my sweet time in the morning drinking cup after cup of coffee and making a really good breakfast. But with some slightly busier days I wanted to cut back on the time I spent cooking in the morning so I could still enjoy my coffee and not feel too rushed. I decided to whip up these breakfast casseroles and baked them in individual dishes so that I could just grab them and reheat them on my early mornings. It's been awesome and they taste amazing!

Gosh they're so pretty! I love breakfast.

I bake the bell peppers, onions and sweet potatoes for about 15 minutes before mixing them in with the eggs and sausage so that everything's evenly cooked. Also, I used some egg whites in this recipe because I track my macros, but if you want you can just use whole eggs too!
