Ingredients for Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole

  • sausage- breakfast sausage or italian sausage both work for this recipe.

How to Make Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Then, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. While the sausage is browning chop broccoli into very small pieces and steam in the microwave with a little bit of water. It should only take about 3 to 4 minutes depending on the strength of your microwave.

Next, in a separate bowl, crack your eggs and add the half and half. Whisk together until eggs are scrambled. Add a little sprinkle of pepper and stir in.

Once your sausage is browned, add your spinach and broccoli to the sauté pan. Cook until spinach is wilted. Isn’t it crazy how spinach just disappears like that?

Then, grease your 9×13″ pan or casserole dish and pour the sausage and vegetable mixture in.
