Recipe: Paleo Breakfast Casserole

I still think breakfast is the easiest meal to make Paleo, but casseroles are usually kind of a challenge without bread or cheese. I threw this one together the other day and it worked out really well! It's so nice to make if you're having people over and don't want to do a bunch of cooking that morning.
