Laura’s Tips + Notes

Make Ahead: Prepare the casserole up to 2 days in advance. Cover and store in the refrigerator until ready to bake. 
Tidbits: Chicken, pork, turkey, or beef sausage can be used. Look for sausage that is nitrate free and does not have additives or sugars. I like Hanna sweet potatoes for their mildly sweet white flesh, but any variety will do. Substitute celery root for sweet potatoes for a lower carb dish. 
If you tolerate dairy, mixing 1 cup of grated Gruyere cheese in with the eggs take this dish to the next level.
