Paleo Breakfast Sausage-Cabbage Bake- AIP Option

Today, I have no words of wisdom to share.  Truth is, I’ve been so busy with formulating a fitness plan for y’all, and writing a couple of guest posts, I haven’t had time to write a post for today. Rather than leave you with nothing at all, I wanted to share another recipe.  This Breakfast Sausage-Cabbage Bake is so easy to put together and cook.  Plus, all you have to do to make it AIP elimination phase is leave out the eggs.

This Breakfast Sausage-Cabbage Bake can be batch cooked, to easily pull out when you need a quick meal.  From the yuca hash brown like crust to the melted “cheese” sauce, flavor is in each and every bite.  And, nobody says you can only have it for breakfast.  It makes a great lunch or dinner too. Enjoy!

Hopefully, I’ll be back next week, with new words of wisdom. LOL! I really think you’re going to love all of the changes coming to the blog next year.  I have tons of new resources I’m working on for you. In the meantime, I’ll also be doing lots of guest posts on some of my favorite blogs.  I’m pretty much going to be everywhere! In case you missed it, I just did a guest post over at He Won’t Know It’s Paleo. My recipe for AIP Cajun Grillades was featured.  You can check it out HERE.  Also, my recipe for Roast Beef with Cabbage Steaks and Mushrooms was featured on Chris Kresser’s The Roundup. You can check that out HERE.  I’m spreading the AIP paleo love all over the place.

As always, I wish you good health…….and, good food!
