Spinach and Sausage Egg Bake

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min.

Makes

12 servings

I've made this recipe for my coworkers, and it's always gone in no time. Leftovers are good, too. Pop a serving in the microwave for a few seconds, and it's just as good as fresh. —Paula Crockett, West Columbia, South Carolina

    This recipe is easy and quite good! I make the following changes: add the seasonings to the sausage after browning it (they combine better when added to the sausage rather than the egg mixture), add 1 small can green chilis to the sausage, use half-and-half instead of milk, omit the salt and bacon, and add 1 tsp cayenne pepper. After cooling, I cut into servings, wrap individually and freeze; each morning I pop one into my husband's lunch so he just heats it up in the microwave when ready to eat. Thank you for a great recipe!

    I made this as written and it turned out really well. Easy to prepare. Had it for Sunday brunch. Everyone enjoyed it as it was seasoned well and quite tasty. I will definitely make again.

    My husband loved this! Mostly because it was not runny, and set up very well! Easy to put together because of the layers! Keeper!

    This is excellent! I actually was in a hurry and forgot about the cheese and it was still excellent. I will definitely be adding this to my list of great breakfast recipes.

    Made this for Easter, hoping for something special. WAY too much chili powder. Was not impressed. Will not make again, since we threw half away.
