Ingredients

  • 12 Eggland's Best eggs (large)
  • 8 slices bread, torn
  • 5 sausage links, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 2 Cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 Cup fat free half-and-half
  • 2 Cups mozzarella cheese, part skim
  • 1 Tablespoon salt
  • 1 Teaspoon pepper

Directions

Spray a 13X9-inch casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, half and half, salt, and pepper; set aside.

Tear bread into small pieces and set aside in a medium bowl.

Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray; remove sausage from casing and place in
skillet. Add garlic and cook sausage according to package instructions.

When sausage is done cooking, remove from heat, drain, and set aside to cool.
In the same skillet, add spinach and cook over medium heat until just wilted, approximately 1-2
minutes; remove from heat when wilted and mix spinach with sausage.

To prepare casserole, scatter bread on the bottom of the casserole dish, spoon sausage and spinach
mixture over bread. Pour egg mixture carefully into dish, pressing down on sausage and bread to
soak up egg mixture.

Cover dish tightly and refrigerate for an hour to allow egg mixture to soak in.

When ready to bake, remove from refrigerator, sprinkle mozzarella cheese and parsley evenly
over the top of the egg mixture. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until eggs are set. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
