Note: You probably won’t drool at my pictures much, since I was cooking this at 9:30 at night and taking snapshots with my phone… but you can skip over to the link to the original for pretty ones. Sorry I didn’t deliver this time!
Inspired by Pastor Ryan’s Eggs Florentine casserole… basically I looked at the pictures, drooled, then bought some sausage at the store. I got a tube of something that didn’t have a lot of scary ingredients in it, and sliced it up.
And browned it in a pan. Next time I think I’ll sort of make it into crumbles instead of slices – will make the final casserole easier to eat w/a fork without a knife.
Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit by the way.
Meanwhile, I julienned a couple potatoes.
And dumped some eggs into a bowl with some grated cheddar cheese – maybe about a cup of cheese? And 8 eggs.
I had some Swiss chard in the fridge, so I de-stemmed it and washed and chopped up the leaves.
and then my sausage was cooked.
So I threw the potatoes in the pan w/the sausage grease and some butter… cooked them for a little while and seasoned with Lawry’s seasoned salt (love that stuff), and then dumped them into a square pan. It’s 8×8 or 9×9 – I’m never sure which.
The sausage went on top of the potatoes – but wouldn’t sausage crumbles be so much nicer? Especially homemade breakfast sausage crumbles? I was a little lazy for that this particular time…
And I mixed the chard and some frozen spinach into the egg/cheese mixture.
…then poured it on top of the sausage and potatoes. Give everything a jiggle so the egg will seep all the way to the bottom…
…and then top with cheese.
Pop it into the oven for about 25-30 minutes.
And it’ll come out looking all puffy and golden and good.
And you know what? It IS all puffy and golden (and green) and good. I’ve been eating it all week for brunches and dinners and snacks and whatnot. In fact, I might go have another piece now…
So to sum up:
Oven to 400 degrees.
Layer in a square baking dish:
- cooked-ish julienned potatoes (seasoned w/Lawry’s or your choice of seasoning + salt)
- cooked sausage – homemade would be best!
- 7-8 eggs mixed with grated cheese of your choice and green leafy veggies of your choice – spinach, kale, chard, etc.
- A sprinkle of cheese
Bake until set and until cheese is turning golden, 25-30 minutes.
