So with eggs in mind I am sharing this tasty egg casserole bake recipe you may wish to try 😋


INGREDIENTS

Serves Six
10 eggs
½ cup coconut milk, milk or cashew milk
2 Tbsp Avocado Oil (divided)
1 pound ground chicken sausage (or your favourite sausage)
2 cups arugula
1.5 cups cauliflower rice
8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese (e.g. goat cheddar)
Salt and pepper
Fresh parsley or green onion, to garnish
INSTRUCTIONS

1. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and a good pinch of salt and pepper.
2. In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of avocado oil over medium heat. Once hot, add your sausage and brown the meat, stirring occasionally. Once fully cooked through, add the cauliflower rice and cook until tender, then mix in the arugula. Remove the skillet from the heat and allow the heat from the skillet and meat to wilt the arugula. Allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
3. Once the sausage mixture has cooled slightly, whisk it into the egg mixture a little at a time to prevent the eggs from scrambling. Sprinkle on about ? of the cheese mixture.
4. Use avocado oil spray or butter to grease a baking dish. Pour the egg mixture in and top with the remaining cheese.
5. Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top and edges of the bake are browned and the casserole feels firm to the touch. Allow the bake to cool, then cut into 6 or 8 pieces and top with chopped parsley or green onion.

RECIPE TIPS
You can use your favourite cheese and green in this recipe. If you don’t like arugula, baby kale, or spinach would work well
