Confession: I'm a dance mom at heart, and Harrison (hey new husband!) has been selected by Realtor Magazine and National Association of Realtors as a finalist for top 30 realtors in the country under 30 and they are currently running a web poll- please take a sec to vote here (bonus- they don't ask for any personal info!). I feel like I'm the ultimate dance mom of this competition, like I'm standing in the audience mouthing every word to the song as Harrison performs on stage.
Now on to breakfast!
I've been burned out on eggs lately, like the kind of burned out that's like if I even see an egg I'm going to gag. This happens to me every few months with eggs and chicken, and it is a strange occurrence for the girl who only ate macaroni and cheese, quesadillas, and pizza for over a decade of life (I wasn't really one for adventure back in the day). I switched back to green smoothies every morning for about a month and now I'm back on the egg train with this delicious breakfast casserole. Also this is the response it got from Harrison so it comes recommended:
|Yes we went parasailing in Mexico and yes I love plays on words. No I'm not a Sarah Palin fan|
Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins
- 1 sweet potato, spiralized ($.80) (I used my brand new spiralizer)
- 12 large eggs, beaten ($4.00)
- 1 package Al Fresco Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage (I get mine at Wal-Mart, or your choice of sausage) ($5.00)
- 2 Cups Spinach ($2.00)
- 1 white onion, diced ($.90)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 teaspoon Garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Slice the sausages in half to remove the meat from the casing. Cook the meat over medium-high heat for about 10, then add the onions, garlic, and peppers and continue cooking until meat is cooked all the way through and onions are translucent.
Spray some non-stick spray on an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish (I use a $10.99 Pyrex Easy-Grab 8" Glass Dish with Lid- yay for a lid that fits!). Layer the sweet potato pieces on the bottom of the pan, then sprinkle some salt and pepper on top of the sweet potato, then add a layer of spinach. Now layer the meat/onion/pepper/garlic concoction to the spinach. Now, evenly pour the eggs on top of the concoction and heat for 40 minutes (or until completely cooked) and voila! Enjoy!
And don't forget to vote, I'll be here dance momming until Friday:
