Sausage and Egg Breakfast Bake Ingredients:
- 8 large eggs
- ½ cup 2% milk
- 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 12 oz. pork breakfast sausage
- ½ cup chopped red bell pepper
- ½ cup chopped parsley
- ⅓ cup chopped green onion
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon cracked black pepper
- 5 cups mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, etc.)
This deliciously easy breakfast idea takes 53 minutes to create from start to finish, and the best part is that it only takes 5 minutes to prep!
Begin by preheating your oven to 350ºF, then lightly grease an 8x11 casserole dish or baking pan with an oil of your choosing. While you wait for your oven to heat up, begin making the breakfast sausage by heating it over medium heat in a skillet. Use a spatula to break up into small pieces, then brown for 5 minutes while stirring occasionally.
Now, add your chopped veggies to the pan and cook 3 minutes longer—They’ll absorb the delicious flavor of the sausage this way (It’s okay if the sausage isn’t cooked completely by this point, as you will be baking it together) . Drain the grease from the pan and allow the ingredients to cool for 5 minutes.
Grab a medium-sized mixing bowl and beat your eggs, milk, sea salt, and black pepper together. Stir in ½ cup of shredded cheese and cooled sausage/vegetable mixture, and then add to your greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese, and bake for 35-40 minutes or until the center is cooked. Cool at room temperature for 10 minutes before slicing into 6 servings.
How to portion Sausage and Egg Breakfast Bake?
Simply divvy the bake into 6 equal-sized squares. Place 1 piece of egg bake in the large compartment of 6 two-compartment meal prep containers, the berries in the smaller one, and you’re good to go!
