My Favorite Breakfast Casserole

I love one-pot meals for supper and have tried to find the perfect one-pot dish to make for breakfast. My husband loves a hearty breakfast of eggs and sausage but I rarely have time to fix them (and get it cleaned up) before leaving for work in the morning. The solution? A baked dish that can be stored in the fridge and reheated during the week! I used my favorite ingredients – things I always have on hand – to come up with this dish. This result is a simple yet delicious breakfast casserole!

My Favorite Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients: (all of these can be purchased at Aldi, making this a very inexpensive dish!)

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tablespoon feta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 links pre-cooked turkey or chicken breakfast sausage
  • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach
  • Tomatoes: 1-2 diced Roma OR a handful of sliced grape/cherry tomatoes

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 9 inch pie dish with cooking spray and set aside. In a small bowl, beat the eggs. Stir in the milk, cheese and a dash of salt and pepper. Set aside. 

Chop the sausage into bite sized pieces and layer it on the bottom of the dish. Top with an even layer of spinach, followed by the tomatoes. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the meat and vegetable layer. Sprinkle with dried parsley and paprika (optional). Bake 22-25 minutes, or until the eggs are completely set and the edges are slightly golden. 

This will keep in the fridge for 4 days. I reheat individual servings in the microwave on a paper towel lined plate, covered with a paper towel, for 30 seconds. It is delicious for breakfast served with avocado toast and fruit, or even for lunch with a side salad!

  1. I love egg dishes! There’s no time in my mornings for preparation, but I’d love to try one this summer when the schedule is lighter.

      1. Reheating is an option! Might have to try that, especially in the cooler months when a hot breakfast would be very comforting.

  2. Yum! I’ve never put spinach in my baked egg dishes so I am excited to give your version a try. I love adding sweet potatoes, sweet peppers, onions, feta and turkey sausage into my baked egg dishes. It really is so handy to bake once and eat for several days. I usually don’t like reheated eggs, but these are delicious.
