Paleo Breakfast Casserole


12 slices nitrate-free bacon

2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced into thin rounds, approximately 1/4-inch

1 Tbsp light flavored olive oil, plus sea salt for roasting the sweet potatoes

3 cups Brussels sprouts, tops removed and either quartered or chopped, plus 1 Tbsp light flavored olive oil and a pinch of sea salt for roasting

1 large onion, thinly sliced

12 eggs

1/3 cup full-fat coconut milk

½ teaspoon salt, to taste

¼ cup nutritional yeast for cheesy flavor

½ teaspoon garlic powder

Black pepper to taste



1. Preheat oven to 425° F.

2. Grease a 9×13-inch casserole dish with coconut oil and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

3. Toss the sweet potato rounds with olive oil and sea salt to taste and arrange over the bottom of your casserole dish (overlapping since they will shrink after roasting).

4. Arrange the Brussels sprouts on the parchment-lined baking sheet in a single layer. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt, and toss to coat.

5. Place the sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts in the oven to roast. The sweet potatoes will roast for about 30 minutes until soft, and the Brussels sprouts for about 15-20 minutes, depending on their size. Remove each when done and set aside.

6. While they are cooking, cut the bacon into 1-inch pieces and cook in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally for even browning, until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to drain on paper towels and set aside. Reserve at least 3-4 Tbsp of bacon fat to caramelize onions.

7. Add the onions to the bacon fat along with a pinch of salt and caramelize over low-medium heat, tossing to coat. Reduce the heat if onions begin to brown too quickly. Cook long and slow (about 25 minutes) to bring out the most flavor. Once the onions are deeply caramelized and very soft, remove from heat.

8. While the onions cook, whisk together the eggs, coconut milk, nutritional yeast, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

9. Reduce oven to 400° F and begin assembling the casserole. Layer the roasted Brussels sprouts over the sweet potato rounds in the casserole dish. Remove the caramelized onions with a slotted spoon and layer over the Brussels sprouts. Follow with the cooked bacon. Finally, pour the whisked egg mixture over the casserole to evenly cover.

10. Bake for about 25 minutes until the center is just set and edges begin to turn light brown. Allow to cool for a bit in the baking dish before cutting into pieces. Serve warm. Leftovers can be stored, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days.

Patient Testimonials

Dr Don Sharnowski is a doctor who is above and beyond all other doctors! Probably his most outstanding quality is that he LISTENS to what his patients say. He is willing to explain things to his patients in terms they can understand. Dr Don treats his patients with wisdom, understanding, gentleness, care, encouragement and he is willing to "go the extra mile" to give his patients the proper treatment they need. He does not treat patients like they were on an assembly line or like he is rushing them out the door. Dr Don has fixed many of the problems I had at my first visit, one of which I had endured for 3 years. Dr Don was able to fix that problem in 2 weeks when others had not. Dr Don has also helped me loose 40 lbs so far. My total recovery is still an ongoing process, but should be a cinch with Dr Don's expert help! Thank you, Dr Don! You are an awesome answer to prayers!

Super Awesome Doctor in Overland Park, Kansas!! He really knows his stuff love his Holistic approach. Wish I lived closer so I could see him on the regular, at least we can chat on the regular! Very informative in all aspects of health! Five years ago this man took our health and turned it around 360 degrees. My son got ear infections very often. Both my boys have respiratory issues. My husband asthma and overweight. Myself aches and pains, specifically on my left side and joints. Well needless to say no more ear infections respiratory not nearly as often my husband is 80lbs less and never uses his inhaler . My sons ear infections...What ear infections...They are no longer! Thanks Dr. Don for all you do and have done!!

Dr Don Sharnowski is truly an amazing Doctor. He listens to his patients and treats in a very complete way. He is very knowledgeable because he never stops learning. He is a great communicator and will help you learn better ways to be healthy if you will actually do what he teaches.

Don (Dr Sharnowski) is truly one of a kind. He is warm, inviting and incredibly generous with his time, but also really knowledgeable about the body and everything within. You won't find crystal balls here. You'll find a super nice guy in sneakers who also sells farm fresh eggs at the counter. I went in expecting to get adjusted (and was scared, because I'd never seen a chiro before). Instead, what I experienced was someone who actually sat down and listened to my history, connected the dots between several ailments (instead of jumping to prescribe one drug apiece to treat each one), and explained things that no one had ever taken the time to do. I was there about my back specifically, but we talked about my whole health. Instead of just prescribing an anti inflammatory (which is what my other doc did), he explained why we get inflammation in our bodies, and how to help reduce it with what we eat. I've also been on thyroid medication for over 10 years, and he actually explained what the thyroid is, and what the drug I take is, and what it does. But not in a defensive or overly crunchy way. He just openly explained in a way that I could understand it. I highly recommend Don to anyone with a body who wants to feel better. His approach is approachably holistic. Just common sense, whole body-centered treatment.
