Breakfast Casserole Ingredients

  • Sausage: Buy turkey breakfast sausage, like Jennie-O.
  • Spinach adds color and vitamins and minerals, like vitamin C, calcium, and iron.

  • Salt and Pepper season the egg casserole.
  • Sundried Tomatoes: Drain and finely chop a quarter cup of sundried tomatoes in oil.

How to Make Breakfast Casserole

  1. Cook the sausage in a skillet on medium-high heat and then transfer to a bowl.
  2. Sauté the spinach on medium heat in the oil from the sausage. Remove it with a slotted spoon and squeeze out any excess liquid. Next, chop the spinach.
  3. Egg Mixture: Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Add the milk, a cup of mozzarella, two tablespoons of parmesan, salt, and pepper.
  4. Assemble the Casserole: Layer the sausage, spinach, and tomatoes in a 9” x 13” casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Pour the eggs over the top and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  5. Bake the breakfast casserole at 350°F for 35 minutes until browned.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a 9” x 13” casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Add the sausage to a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Cook, breaking up the sausage with a wooden spoon, until just cooked through.  Transfer the sausage to a small bowl with a slotted spoon.
  • Reduce heat to medium then add the spinach to the skillet with the liquid and oil left behind from the sausage.  Cook for 2-3 minutes until wilted.  Remove with a slotted spoon, carefully squeezing excess liquid from the spinach by pressing with the wooden spoon over the sink.  Alternatively, you can transfer the cooked spinach to a fine mesh sieve and drain, pressing lightly to remove excess moisture.  Place spinach on a cutting board and roughly chop.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl or large measuring cup, add the eggs.  Whisk until uniform. Add the milk, 1 cup mozzarella, 2 tablespoons parmesan, salt and pepper.  Whisk to combine.
  • In the prepared casserole dish, layer the sausage, cooked spinach, and sundried tomatoes.  Pour the egg mixture over the top then top with remaining 1 cup mozzarella and 2 tablespoons parmesan.
  • Transfer to oven and bake for 35 minutes, rotating halfway through (if desired), to allow for even browning.  Slice into 10 pieces and serve.
