Egg Florentine Casserole



This is seriously one of my FAVORITE breakfast/brunch items to make.  It had been a busy week, and it was my day off today....I figured I'd make this delicious casserole for my sweetheart this morning :)  Eggs, sausage, peppers, potatoes, and onions....where could you go wrong?

Just trust me on this: if you make this for someone, they will love you forever, and beg you to make it again.  Trust me.


EGG FLORENTINE CASSEROLE

INGREDIENTS
2-3 medium potatoes, julienned
1 package (16 oz) breakfast sausage
1/2 c. red and green peppers, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
6 eggs
handful of spinach, thinly sliced (I just used spinach leaves and it was fine; whatever you prefer!)
1/2 bag cheddar cheese
olive oil
1 Tbsp butter
salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Grease an 8" x 8" casserole dish with butter and set aside.  In a medium bowl, beat eggs and add cheese and spinach, making sure to fully coat.

Heat butter and some olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add julienned potatoes, season with salt/pepper, and cook until browned and crispy. Spread evenly on the bottom of the casserole dish.

In the same skillet over medium heat, add onions and peppers. Season with salt/pepper and cook until slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Pour evenly over potatoes. 

In the same skillet once again, crumble breakfast sausage into small pieces and cook until browned. Spread evenly over top of the vegetables in the casserole dish. Pour the egg mixture on top of the sausage, making sure to coat all the sausage.

Bake in preheated oven for about 15 to 20 minutes, until eggs are set. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
 

Hope y'all enjoy!
