Sausage and Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole

Image

I created this recipe to try to sneak more protein into my breakfast. It is Paleo (though I am not). It is also gluten free, 21 Day Fix friendly, and Clean Eating friendly, though I am not strictly and of those things either. I am just trying to eat better and be healthy while eating food that tastes delicious (which this does)!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb turkey sausage, browned
  • 2 cups cubed, cooked sweet potato
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped with steps removed
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil, for greasing pans

Directions:

Brown the sausage in a skillet.

You can cook the sweet potato any way you’d like. I microwaved mine for about 5 minutes to soften them enough to chop. They would probably be even better roasted in the oven, but I didn’t have time for that today.

In a large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs with the sage and sale.

Stir in the chopped spinach and the cooked sausage.

Gently add the sweet potato.

Grease a 9 in pie plate with coconut oil, and pour in the egg.

Bake at 375 for 30 minutes or until eggs are set.  Cut into 4 equal sized pieces.

Servings: 4
