I made this for a breakfast over the weekend, and it was a hit. What a great meal to start the day with, full of healthy vegetables, delicious sausage, and eggs. I topped it off with just a bit of mozzarella cheese as well. It doesn’t take much prep work, then in the oven for about 35 minutes.
1 large sweet potato, or 2 smaller ones, sliced
8 large eggs
2 cups fresh broccoli, chopped and steamed
1 large red bell pepper, sliced
8 oz chicken breakfast sausage
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 375F. Steam the broccoli just enough to soften it up a bit. Slice the sweet potato and place the pieces into a ring on the bottom of a 9″ pie pan. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs together, then add the sliced peppers, broccoli, and sausage. Pour the egg mixture over top the sweet potatoes, then add the salt, pepper, and cheese. Bake for about 35 minutes.
*I often place my sweet potatoes in the microwave for just a minute before cutting to make them a little easier to cut. Be careful handling them if you choose to warm them up a bit before cutting.
