Egg and Spinach Breakfast Casserole Recipe


1 box or 2 bags of croutons, seasoned
1 green, red or yellow pepper, diced
½ onion, diced
1 box frozen Green Giant Creamed Spinach, cooked
½ box Boca Veggie Sausage Links, cooked (5 links cooked in microwave for 1 minute) – of course you can also use real sausage if you prefer or no sausage at all or bacon or veggie bacon or diced cooked chicken
4 oz. shredded cheese (cheddar or cheddar/mozzarella mix work well)
9 eggs
2 cups milk (I use skim milk)
Garlic, pepper and Italian spices to taste

Place croutons on bottom of 9 x 13 inch pan. Put veggies over croutons. Spread sausage over veggies. Sprinkle cheese evenly over pan. In a large bowl, mix eggs, milk and spices together well. Pour into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes.
