Sweet Potato Breakfast Casserole

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.

Coat the pie pan with olive oil cooking spray. Line the bottom and sides with the thinly sliced sweet potatoes. Fill the pan with your veggies and the sausage cut up into small pieces. 

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.

Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes. Take out 5 minutes prior to completion, top with shredded cheddar cheese and then bake for the remaining 5 minutes.

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.
