Sausage breakfast casserole is one of my favorite ways to add meat to breakfast. Don’t get me wrong, we love bacon, but we wanted to diversify our egg recipes. This easy casserole takes very little time, and went over really well with family and as leftovers.
For this casserole, all you’ll need is ground breakfast sausage (or ground pork with some seasonings), eggs, onion, and spinach. You could easily add in some mushrooms or bell peppers to suit what’s on your mind or in your refrigerator. We hope you’ll add this egg recipe to your regular breakfast rotation.
Heat one tablespoon of avocado oil in skillet over medium heat, and lightly brown sausage in a cast iron skillet for 3-4 minutes.
Add onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Fold in spinach, 1 cup at a time.
Grease your casserole dish with 1-2 tablespoons of avocado oil. Here’s the casserole dish we used. Spoon or pour sausage mixture into the dish, and then pour your beaten eggs over top.
Mix lightly to even out the mixture of spinach, sausage, onion, and egg.
Bake for 30 minutes uncovered, and then the final 5-7 minutes covered to prevent over browning.
Let rest for 5-10 minutes, and then cut to serve.
This was a perfect egg recipe for our Thanksgiving morning, and will certainly be our go-to sausage casserole recipe from now on.
