Hashbrown casseroles are a fairly standard breakfast fare, especially around the holidays if you're part of my family. But a traditional recipe is loaded with potatoes, cheese and dairy products. This recipe owns a unique twist by the use of parsnips, omission of cheese and addition of coconut milk. It's creamy. It's rich. It's full of flavor. AND it's easy to make.
- 4 cups 4 cups 4 cups Parsnip, Shredded (About 5-6 lg)

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Shred your parsnips using a food processor or hand grater.
- Brown sausage on stove on medium heat. Salt and pepper the meat to your liking. Once completely cooked through, set aside and clean out any excess fat from the pan.
- Melt 1 tbs oil or ghee in the same pan. Saute the parsnips and onion, covered, for 5 mins. Stir occassionally.
- In the meantime, crack your eggs into a large bowl and whisk.
- Stir in your coconut milk, nutritional yeast (or cheese) and the herbs/seasonings.
- Add in the meat and parsnip mixture once done cooking.
- Pour mixture into a lightly greased 3.5 quart casserole dish.
- Bake for 45-50 minutes until completely cooked
- Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
- Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. This dish reheats very well!
Optional: Switch out nutritional yeast for Shredded, Raw Full-Fat Cheese.
