I am a huge fan of breakfast and love getting a good, protein-packed breakfast in before a long day. As I am about to go back to the office (after a few months getting to work from home), I wanted to make something nutritious, filling, but also easy/quick for the morning.
For the sweet potato breakfast casserole, you’ll need:
- Pie pan
- 1 large sweet potato
- 10 eggs
- 4 precooked sausage patties (I love these Butterball ones)
- Veggies of choice (I used broccoli, spinach, and onion)
- Salt and pepper
- Olive oil cooking spray
- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Wash the sweet potato and poke holes throughout with a fork, then place in the microwave for 5 minutes. Let it cool down and then cut into as thin of slices as possible.
In a bowl, beat 10 eggs, add a tablespoon or so of water for fluffiness, add salt and pepper. Mix all together well and then pour into the pie pan. Shake the pie a bit to make sure the egg gets down into the little crevices between food.
Let cool and then you can eat slices of it throughout the week for breakfast or eat it straight out of the oven after a few minutes of cooking! To reheat, place slice on a microwave safe dish, cover with a wet paper towel and reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
