Eggs Florentine Casserole

For our Christmas brunch, I make eggs florentine, with sausage and spinach for a snappy casserole. Sometimes I mix in fresh peppers or green chiles, so play with it. —Karen Weekley, Washington, West Virginia

    We eat "breakfast for dinner" alot in our home. This was a fantastic dish, hearty enough for an evening meal. I liked someone's suggestion to use green chilies, may try next time. I used a spicy bulk sausage, so it had a kick to it. Will be making again soon!

    I love this, but I substitute Poke Salad for the spinach. Poke Salad has a better, more intense flavor than spinach.

    I loved this! We recently started doing keto and this recipe fit right in. I did use half and half in place of the 2 % milk to lower the carbs even more to make it even more keto friendly. It was delicious!

    Enjoyed this variation of classic "egg bake" recipes. I especially liked that it did not contain any bread since we have been eating "grain free". So many have bread cubes in. I chose to add green pepper for added flavor and veggie content, and it was good. Will definitely make this again.

    Delicious and easy! I blend a little bit of cottage cheese with the eggs and use less milk. This is a keeper!

    Yum! So glad I added a can of green chilies to give this some kick. I only had a 16oz bag of spinach, so I baked mine for 15 minutes at 375, then another 35 minutes at 350 and it was perfectly done. Definitely keeping this one around.

    Very good. I make it for a church brunch and it went over very well. I put it together the night before and baked in the morning. I did add three shredded potatoes for a little extra body and baked as directed.

    I loved this recipe and so did my family. I used mild italian instead of the pork sausage and it tasted great.
