Start Your Day Right- Naturally Fermented Sauerkraut Breakfast Casserole

Out of all the different meal-time foods, breakfast is probably the most appealing to me; part of that may be due to how much I love eggs.  They’re incredibly versatile, and they go well with so many other foods- especially naturally fermented sauerkraut!  If you’ve never had sauerkraut with eggs before, they are delicious together, and a great way to start the morning.  This gave me the idea to make a savory breakfast casserole, with sauerkraut in it- and wow it was good!  If you love breakfast casseroles, this may become your new favorite!  It’s so easy to throw together and very flavorful.  If you’re like me and think breakfast-food is anytime-time-of-the-day-food, it’s also perfect for brunch, lunch, even dinner!

Sauerkraut Breakfast Casserole

  • 1 cup drained Bubbies naturally fermented sauerkraut
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup of shredded cheese, plus extra for the top
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream
  • Pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Drain sauerkraut well; cook bacon completely and pat well with a paper towel to remove excess grease. In a bowl, whisk together 6 eggs and the milk. Add sauerkraut, pepper bacon, cheese and onions, and mix together. Pour into a well-greased casserole dish, and bake for 25-30 minutes, til the cheese is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let it cool for 15 minutes.  Enjoy!
