Sausage, Spinach and Sweet Red Pepper Breakfast Casserole

16 oz. chicken sausage (I used Isernios)
1 Box frozen spinach
1/4 Cup heavy cream
18 Eggs
1 Cup grated cheddar cheese
2 tsp. dried parsley
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 cup diced sweet red pepper
Olive oil
Kosher Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

Cook sausage and set aside.  Sautee red pepper (add a little oil to the pan if needed), and add minced garlic in the last minute or two of cooking. Scramble eggs in large bowl.

Add the rest of the ingredients except the cheese to the bowl with the eggs.  Mix well.

Oil a 9×13 inch pan, and pour egg mixture in.  Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

.

Ingredients:  Asparagus, eggs, ricotta cheese, green onions, bacon (I used beef bacon)

Embellishments: 1 medium onion sauteed and added to bottom of the baking dish.

Prep: Recipe called for boiling the asparagus, but I went ahead and roasted them. Prep time was probably about 10 minutes (cooking the bacon, roasting asparagus, sauteeing the onion).

Cook time: 35 minutes

Comments:  I loved this dish — It tasted great, easy prep, and quick for an after work meal.  However, I have mentioned before that the family really doesn’t enjoy the “eggs for dinner” concept, so although they said it tasted ok, they really didn’t enjoy it.

I’m overriding the family on this one and giving it a thumbs up.  It was quite tasty, quick, and easy.

Bacon and Egg Casserole

I thought this was pretty good, however my family is just not thrilled with the quiche for dinner concept yet.  Looking like they better get used to it since emeals seems to have one egg based dinner dish each week!  The side dish was just spinach salad, which just doesn’t cut it for my better half from a “filling up” perspective.

I had a butternut squash leftover from my husband’s summer garden,  so peeled, diced, and roasted with some garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil for an additional side.

Substitutions and alterations….You know I always do this !  We generally don’t eat bacon, so I substituted beef, in place of the pork bacon.  The recipe also called for 1/4 cup of onion, and I used the entire thing since I hate stinky leftover onion smell in the fridge.

Prep:  Nice and Easy !  Thumbs up from me….Thumbs down from the Family….

EMEALS review:  Ham and Cheese Quiche with Sweet Peas

This was very tasty, prep time minimal, cooking time about 30 min.

I find that the low carb recipes on emeals are not as low carb as I usually eat.  For example, I rarely serve peas since they are “high carb” in comparison to other veggies.  But honestly, peas are better than bread in the grand scheme of things.

The recipe called for butter, 1/2 an onion (I used the entire thing), garlic, eggs, half and half, swiss cheese, and diced ham (I used turkey ham).

I sauteed the onion and garlic in the butter and transferred to the cooking dish, then layered in the turkey ham, cheese, and finally topped with the egg/half and half mixture.  I added cracked black pepper on the top and popped into the oven for 30 minutes.

For the side, the recipe just called for steamed sweet peas, but I had a little leftover corn and pesto, so threw that in just to get rid of it.

My kiddo and I both loved this dish, however, hubby has never been a fan of anything resembling quiche, and although he said it tasted good, he didn’t particularly care for it. The leftovers heated very well and tasted great on day 2 for lunch.
