Breakfast casseroles are perfect for any time of the week, but they are especially delightful on a cozy Saturday morning! This Leek and Pepper Breakfast Casserole will satisfy your weekend hunger!
Gluten Free and Dairy Free Leek and Pepper Breakfast Casserole
Breakfast casseroles are easy to throw together, feed a crowd, and are warm and delicious. What’s not to love? I’ve created this yummy breakfast leek casserole that is both gluten free and dairy free to fit in with my family’s food restrictions, and I think you and your family will love it too!
We have two reasons to celebrate with this delicious recipe today!
YES, you read that right! Hilary’s our favorite trusted Hilary’s just released Veggie Breakfast Sausage. As you know Hilary’s products are FREE from the most common allergens and they are certified gluten-free. Oh yes and they are veggie based! We love Hilary’s products because they are allergy safe for us and they taste amazing. These products are made with “real” ingredients. You can read and understand the label.
For this tasty recipe, we used the Spicy Veggie Breakfast Sausage! Once you try it, you will love it too! This is honestly a product that has been missing in my world. I didn’t have a safe gluten-free, allergy-friendly option like this! SUPER excited for this game changing product!
You can use Hilary’s sausage in any recipe that calls for sausage or breakfast “meat”.
Just like the real and wholesome ingredients that Hilary’s uses in all their products, we kept our recipe simple as well. While it may be simple, it is most certainly full of flavor!
I love the mild onion flavor of leeks in breakfast dishes. Leeks are often overlooked, but I love them in so many recipes. You could substitute a green onion or shallot here, but if you can get your hands on some leeks, do it! This is a leek breakfast casserole, after all.
The bell peppers add color and a sweet kick that goes really well with the spicy breakfast sausage.
This dairy free breakfast casserole is vegan – no eggs, no cheese, no animal products at all. This is a dish that you can feel good serving your family on Christmas Morning, Easter brunch, or just any given Sunday morning.

Can I Make This Recipe Ahead of Time?
Absolutely! Cook the casserole fully, and then warm it up in a moderate oven or in the microwave before serving.
Can I adjust the Size of this recipe?
I haven’t tried it, but I think that this recipe would be simple to double, or to half. If you try it, let me know how it comes out!
What if I Think This Casserole Needs Cheese?
If you aren’t concerned about your breakfast being dairy free or vegan, by all means, add some cheese on top before baking! I think that the addition of a vegan cheese substitute would be yummy here too.
