Breakfast Pot Pie: AIP & Whole30 compliant!

I love eggs. I mean I really LOOOOOVVVEEE eggs. That yolk-y goodness is just irreplaceable, but even I like to do a little egg-less breakfast every now & then. I learned this skill during my AIP elimination phase. I wish I had thought this one up back then! It’s the brain-food baby of a paleo quiche I made & my cauli-alfredo sauce. Really… foods get it on in my head & make beautiful babies. I know, I’m weird.

You can put these together and store until ready to cook, or cook them all ahead, and store until ready to eat! Or prepare them for a brunch!

*Update I’ve made a cashew cream for my non-AIPers & a simpler cauliflower cream for this recipe… & two different variations!

You can make it with riced cauliflower or riced sweet potato & with cauli-cream or cashew cream!

I like the riced cauli with cashew cream for a low-carb (not AIP) version & the riced sweet potato with cauli cream for a hearty AIP version!
But you can combine it how you see fit!
