Whole30 Breakfast Day 2Mini Breakfast Casseroles and Chicken Sausage

Ingredients –

  • 6 Eggs (Pastured & Organic)
  • 1 cup Leeks, diced
  • 1 cup Fresh Spinach, wilted
  • 1 Shallot, diced
  • 1 cup Grape Tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tsp Light-Tasting Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Ground Chicken (Free-Range/Hormone-free)
  • 1 tsp Rubbed Sage
  • 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg

Directions for Mini Breakfast Casseroles

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Scramble eggs and set aside in pourable measuring cup.  In a large bowl combine leeks, wilted spinach (directions for wilting below), diced tomatoes and stir together.  Spoon mixture into 12-cup non-stick muffin pan.  Next, pour scrambled egg mixture over top of veggie mixture being careful to only fill cups half-full to prevent overflow.  (I learned the hard way)

Place in oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until desired stage of egg doneness.

Directions for wilting fresh spinach – In a small non-stick frying pan, add diced shallot and olive oil and turn burner to medium.  Add full bag of baby spinach and using tongs, occasionally toss spinach until completely wilted.  One 6 oz. bag of spinach yields 1 cup of wilted spinach.

Directions for Chicken Sausage

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine chicken, sage, cayenne pepper, paprika, salt/pepper, nutmeg in mixing bowl and mix together with your hands.  Using a mini non-stick 24-count muffin pan, roll mixture into small meatball size portions and place in muffin tin.  Bake for 30 minutes.

I used these two recipes to prepare my first 5 days of breakfast for my #Whole30 program.  1 serving for me was 2 mini casseroles and 4 sausage balls.  I topped my mini casseroles with hot sauce for added flavor to eliminate the need of adding extra salt/pepper.
