Easy Breakfast Casserole Egg Strata Recipe

Breakfast casserole egg strata recipe dairy free

Easy Breakfast Casserole Egg Strata Recipe: Have you ever made a breakfast casserole? I love to make egg stratas. It’s a casserole dish made with bread pieces and eggs. You can add any of your favorite ingredients. This recipe is a dairy free egg strata with sausages and bacon bits. It’s a very simple basic breakfast casserole that you can embellish any way you’d like to. Breakfast casserole recipes are a great way to use up day old bread.  Ever since we went gluten and corn free in our house our bread budget has tripled. I hate to waste anything, especially perfectly good slices of  gluten free bread. No one in our house likes to eat the ends.

Breakfast Casserole makes use of your bread loaf’s end pieces


It just feels like we are flushing money down the drain. So I came up with a recipe that will make those loaf ends delicious and get everyone in the house scraping their plates. You can eat this dish on a weekday morning because it can be made ahead of time and baked at the last minute on a busy morning.

Ingredients for Breakfast Casserole:

  • 8 eggs, beaten
    2 sausage links (we used Al Fresco all natural fully cooked Sweet Apple Chicken Sausage) skinned and chopped, but you can use any all natural preservative free sausages you’d like.
  • 4-6 slices of your favorite stale end pieces of gluten and corn-free bread, cubed.
  • optional bacon bits for garnish
  • 1 cup of Almond milk (You can use regular milk if you wish, or any other dairy free milk)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Pour into a small greased baking dish and cook for 35-45 minutes.

When the casserole is nicely browned on top, remove from oven. Let sit 5 minutes. Slice into squares and serve.

NOTE: Leftovers can be frozen and reheated, so don’t worry about having to throw out the leftovers.

The individual squares will each heat up just great in the microwave on high after about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes.

Of course you can also warm them in the toaster oven as well.

  1. Although the recipe may be GF, your choice of bread does have an ingredient that may include corn. The Whole Foods GF breads include xanthan gum which can be, according to Wikipedia “produced by a bacterium that is fed corn to grow, some people allergic to corn will also react to it.” Can you verify that Whole Foods GF breads are made from a non-corn derived xanthan gum? A reply would be appreciated.

    • Our son does not react to xanthan gum. Many folks with corn allergies do not react to xanthan gum. And you are right, some corn allergic folks do react to it. It is usually but not always grown on corn. Sometimes it is grown on soy, another possible allergen for many folks. I suggest if you are concerned about xanthan gum you should just substitute with your own bread that you feel safe consuming. Whole foods sells many bread mix varieties that are made with guar gum (safe for corn allergy sufferers) or baking soda. Baking powder is also problematic unless it is Hain’s Featherweight. I thought I would add that just in case you are unaware. Check out Whole Foods 365 bread mix (made with guar gum) or Bread From Anna products (also without xanthan gum). Really, any bread you prefer will work.
