Chicken Sausage Egg Casserole

Good morning friends! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I spent mine in Delaware with my sister-in-law celebrating her engagement -- it was so fun! I may have mentioned she got engaged on Christmas Day and of course, I'm totally thrilled! Today I'm sharing one of favorite breakfast casseroles. I made this during my paleo challenge and it just kind of stuck. My family loves this casserole and because it only requires 3 ingredients, we make it often!

This recipe is borrowed from Mark's Daily Apple and I love that it's so easy to modify. If you don't like spinach, try making it with kale instead! Not a huge fan of the roasted red pepper sausage? Try it with the apple chicken sausage instead, or just regular sausage! The brand of sausage I use is Aidells, which can be found at both regular and bulk grocery stores, like Costco. (See some of my other favorite things to buy at Costco here.) I like Aidells because they use all natural quality ingredients and their products do not have nitrates, added hormones or MSG.

When I first tried this recipe, I cooked the spinach and parsley with the sausage on the stove before mixing it in with the eggs, but I've since learned that's not necessary! The sausage is pre-cooked, so you can literally throw it all in a baking dish and pop it in the oven!

When it's cooked and had a chance to cool I usually cut the casserole into squares and package them in Ziploc bags for work! I heat a sqaure for about 30 seconds when I get in the office and enjoy it with my coffee. It's very satisfying!
