Easy Breakfast Casserole

My husband wakes up quite early to get ready for work and sometimes he gets tired of eating eggs and bacon every morning (and since being pregnant, I am not a fan of the smell of bacon lingering in our home, either).

Last night he prepped and cooked a simple, grain-free breakfast casserole (inspired by this recipe) and had it ready to go the next morning. It was a quick, easy, and healthy solution to breakfast!

Grain-free Spicy Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 pound spicy Italian sausage
  • 2 cups spinach
  • 2 ounces pepper jack cheese, shredded

Directions:

  • Brown sausage in bacon grease or olive oil – place in bowl
  • In the same pan, cook spinach until just wilted
  • Mix sausage, spinach, and cheese together
  • Whisk together eggs and mix into sausage mix
  • Dump in a 8×8 oven-safe dish and cook at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until eggs are cooked through and no longer runny in the center
  • Serve fresh or refrigerate and serve later

My husband can eat quite a bit sometimes, but he found that 1/4 serving was a bit too much – cutting the casserole into 6 pieces might be better.
