Deep Dish Sausage Breakfast Casserole

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.

Ingredients
1 lb pork breakfast sausage
3 C lightly packed spinach
1 medium onion, diced (approx. 1 1/2 C)
10 eggs
2-3 Tbsp avocado oil

Method

Heat one tablespoon of avocado oil in skillet over medium heat, and lightly brown sausage in a cast iron skillet for 3-4 minutes.

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.

  1. This is DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I added a little bit of red bell pepper and I had a mixed bag of “power greens”- baby spinach, chard, and kale, so I used that instead of just spinach. This will definitely be in my rotation!!!! Thanks! :)
