Awhile back Sean and I got rainbow swiss chard in our CSA which we used to make a breakfast casserole. I made the casserole on Sunday night and would heat it up in the microwave for 30-45 s every morning and serve it for breakfast. Healthy, tasty, quick & easy… not much more ya can ask for!
What You’ll Need
- 1 pound of breakfast sausage (I got some sausage from the farm… it was delicious beyond words)
- A bunch of greens (I did swiss chard but you could also do spinach, turnip greens, collards or kale)
- ~2 sweet potatoes
- ~6-8 large eggs
I started off cooking the sausage in a skillet.
While it was cooking I cut up the sweet potatoes into thin slices and lined the bottom of an 8″ x 8″ baking dish with them.
I chopped up the swiss chard a bit and once the sausage was done cooking I threw it in the skillet as well. I cooked the mixture until the swiss chard was nice and wilted. Then I evenly topped the sweet potatoes with the swiss chard & sausage mixture.
In a separate bowl I whisked the eggs and poured them on top of the casserole, making sure to distribute the eggs evenly throughout the dish.
Baked at 400-deg until the eggs were thoroughly cooked (30-40 minutes). If you stick a knife in the thickest part of the casserole and it comes out clean, it’s ready to eat!
I like the sweet potato & egg layers at the bottom – it made it fun to eat
