Sausage Mushroom Breakfast Bake

This week’s postings may be a little messy (so Monday’s post is on Tuesday, Wednesday’s post might be on Thursday, etc).  Due to a very busy weekend where I had a couple extra children, I didn’t make as much progress for this week as I would normally like.  So a day late, but it’s so good, it’s worth it!

At least that’s what I’m telling everyone.

Yesterday was Labor Day, and because we had the day off, we decided to go Pokemon Go-ing at Six Flags.  I had this recipe on the back burner for awhile, and this seemed like a great time to make it to fuel my band of Pokemon hunters.  Full of sausage, eggs, and mushrooms, it fills up the three men in my life and sneaks in some vitamins B and D in there at the same time!

The best part is, if you have picky eaters in your house who refuse to eat mushrooms, you can’t even taste them in this breakfast casserole.  Seth scarfed two servings down without any hesitation.

This has nothing to do with my post, but I found this cute little comic and wanted to throw it up for those who love puns.  You know who you are.

This one's for you Dad.

There is music in the video, so mute your volume (or turn it down) if you don’t want to hear it or would get in trouble for watching a video at work.

 

Instructions:

1.  Preheat oven to 350°.

2.  Brown sausage over medium heat.  Add diced onion and mushrooms.  Saute for 3 – 5 minutes.

3.  While the sausage and mushroom mix is finishing it’s saute; add eggs, heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper to a bowl.  Whisk very well to incorporate air into the mix.

4.  Place the sausage mushroom mixture into the bottom of a casserole dish.  I used a 9 x 13.  Spread the mixture so that it evenly covers the bottom of the dish.  Top with desired amount of shredded cheese – I used about two cups.

5.  Carefully pour egg mix over the cheese.  Bake at 350° for 35 minutes.

I was able to get 8 servings out of this.  My calculations do not include the sour cream you see in a couple of the pictures.  Using a calculation of 8 servings, this came to about 343 calories, 7 grams net carbs, 16 grams of protein, and 27 grams of fat per serving.

I used the MyFitnessPal recipe creator to calculate nutritional information.  Nutritional values may change based off the ingredient brands you use, and of course, the size/number of servings you make.
