There is nothing more versatile than an egg. You can eat eggs for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can eat eggs sunny-side up or hard-boiled, scrambled with goat cheese and truffle oil. You can poach eggs for a salad, sandwich or burger.

Or, you can bake eggs into a breakfast casserole. A healthy breakfast casserole with extra protein from lean chicken sausage, reduced-fat cheese and whole wheat bread. And some vegetables, because you always need a green vegetable.

I came up with this casserole on a whim. I had a collection of ingredients that I wasn’t sure what to do with: six eggs, spinach, 2 links of apple maple chicken breakfast sausage. If you’re not a breakfast person, eat it for dinner. Or just start going to bed earlier because this is worth setting the early alarm.

    I add sliced and lightly grilled white button or brown mushrooms in almost all of the ground beef recipes that I prepare.
    Sweet peppers is also a very nice addition. Medium raw beef, with mushrooms, onions and sweet peppers are my favorite combination.

    I love casseroles. Hands down my favorite thing to bake. And ones that have breakfast ingredients? I am so making this one evening for dinner.

    that looks delicious! I love egg bakes, but never think of them until I want breakfast RIGHT NOW!
    I also love kitchen sink casseroles – it’s awesome to throw a bunch of stuff together & have it turn out delicious!
