Spinach and Egg Casserole

We love breakfast for dinner around here. This Spinach and Egg Casserole (with some sausage thrown in for fun) was fantastic for dinner, but would also be great for breakfast!

This is a slight twist on the recipe found in Gooseberry Patch’s new cookbook, “Hometown Harvest”. (The original didn’t have the sausage. I’m not sure Farmer Doc would have enjoyed it quite so much without the meat!)

Hometown Harvest
Start off with 9 beaten eggs, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, and 1 and 1/2 cups of baby spinach. Mix them all together.

Then mix in one pound of browned ground sausage. Add salt and pepper, if you want. (I didn’t.)

In a 350 degree oven, melt two tablespoons of butter in a 9”x9” baking pan. When the butter is melted, pour the egg mixture right on top of the butter. (The melty butter will magically mostly rise to the top of the egg mixture.)

Bake the egg casserole at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the eggs are set. (It took almost 40 minutes in my 9”x9” Pampered Chef stoneware pan).

Let it sit for about 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy this for breakfast, or for dinner – whichever you prefer!
