Egg, Sausage and Broccoli Casserole

Breakfasts, Main Dishes | March 25, 2016 | By

Having breakfast for dinner is one of my kids’ favorite meals. And this Egg, Sausage and Broccoli Casserole is at the top of their most requested list.

Some time ago I shared a meatless version of this recipe. Tonight I made it with sausage and added in some broccoli. It was delicious and everyone had seconds. Here is a picture of it before popping it in the oven:

The broccoli could easily be substituted with a variety of other veggies – spinach, zucchini or asparagus would probably be at the top of my must-try list of alternatives.

If you use a glass pan, be sure to grease with a little butter or coconut oil. Otherwise, I typically make mine in a stoneware baking dish.

Recommendations: Italian Seasoning  ♦  Sea Salt
