Breakfast for Dinner Anyone?

As a busy mom sometimes planning meals takes the backseat.  As parents we all know the day can start out smooth and one phone call can make all hell break lose.  Today was my day, I had everything planned I was going to do but instead I spent a lot of time calling insurance companies and making unexpected emergency dental appointments.

I don’t know about you but I think breakfast is one of the easiest meals to prepare.  Tonight I decided to grab some fresh vegetables and salsa and make breakfast.  I armed myself with; spicy turkey sausage, green peppers, green onions, jalapeno, salsa, mushrooms, and yellow potatoes.  I knew I already had a container of liquid egg whites at home.  My plan was make a breakfast casserole large enough for dinner tonight and enough for breakfast tomorrow.  It worked out great! 


This breakfast casserole is easy to make too!

·         1 tsp. Olive oil to brush the bottom of a baking dish

·         2 cups of liquid egg whites & 4 whole eggs (whisked together)

·         Dash of Pepper and Cumin

·         Ground spicy turkey sausage – 1 package

·         Green peppers ½ cup

·         Jalapeno- seeded and diced

·         Green Onions- chopped

·         ½ cup mushrooms chopped

·         2 Tbsp. Fresh salsa

·         Yellow Potatoes (steam bag located in produce)

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and brown the turkey sausage while oven pre-heats.  Once the turkey is cooked through add it to the bottom of the baking dish.  Pour eggs over the sausage and add all vegetables (besides the potatoes) to the top of the eggs.  Bake the casserole for 35-40 minutes or until the eggs are cooked through. 

Steam the Yellow Potatoes for 9 minutes or until soft in the microwave. 

Quick and easy breakfast casseroles can be made with any vegetables you love!  Very little prep time, it was finished before my children completed their homework.
