Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 50 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
Servings: 12 slices

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp cooking fat of choice
  • 4 chicken sausages, cut into circles
  • 1 medium white or yellow onion, diced
  • 12 eggs
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2.5 oz baby spinach
  • 10 oz riced sweet potato, I use a bag of frozen riced sweet potato. You can use shredded sweet potato or shredded hash brown potatoes. Thawed works too.
  • 1 1/2 - 2 tbsp olive oil, This is for greasing the inside of the baking dish. You can use coconut oil if you prefer.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Add 1 tbsp cooking fat of choice to skillet on medium high heat. Add diced onion and chicken sausage. Sauté until onion is tender and sausage has some browning.
  • Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×13 baking dish with olive oil. 
  • Spread your riced sweet potato in the bottom of your greased baking dish. (Mine is still frozen when I do this but I break it up so that it spreads evenly.) Top with fresh baby spinach and your sautéed onion and chicken sausage.
  • Whisk eggs, salsa, salt, and pepper together until well combined. Pour the egg mixture over everything in the baking dish.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until egg mixture is set in the center. (45 minutes is the perfect baking time for my oven.) Let casserole sit for a few minutes before slicing.

Notes

My favorite sausage is Applegate Chicken Apple Sausage. My husband loves Applegate Andouille Chicken Sausage (it's spicy). I find them at our Whole Foods in the refrigerated section next to hot dogs and bacon. Both are delicious options! 
I find my riced sweet potato in the freezer section of the grocery store. The only ingredient is sweet potato. The brand I use is Boulder Canyon.
