{ Healthy Easy Breakfast On-the-Go: Egg Squares }

Breakfast should not be a chore! And it most definitely should not be skipped due to a busy morning.  It’s easy to grab a smoothie or protein shake on the way out the door, but c’mon, some of us want a little more substance. These egg squares are so versatile. Add more veggies, subtract the cheese, add more cheese, whatever you like!

You can heat them up on your way out the door or you can heat them up at work. No pans, no mess, just one casserole dish, one time. In this blog, I will share the turkey sausage, and spinach version. Stay tuned for the next blog on another variation!

For about 6 servings:

  • 8 eggs (or equivalent in egg whites)
  • 3 T unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 cups cooked turkey sausage
  • 1 cup fat free cheese (optional)
  • 1 T salt, 1 T pepper
  • optional garnishes: a sprinkle of creole seasoning (always have to have a southern twist in there)  hot sauce, green onion

1) Preheat oven to 375. Spray 2-quart baking dish with non-stick spray. I like to vary my shapes – sometimes I’ll use a long casserole dish, other time square, other times a round pie pan. Your eggs should only fill about half the pan to leave a little room for rising.

2) I actually wilted my spinach in the baking dish slightly to reduce amount of dirty dishes.

3) Beat eggs with milk, salt and pepper. Pour eggs, sausage, cheese over spinach. Mix ingredients lightly with spatula.

4) Bake about 30-35 minutes. Insert a knife and it should come out clean. Eggs should be golden around the edges.

5) Serve warm or cut into squares, wrap in tin foil or plastic wrap and eat throughout the week. Microwave just 30 seconds. Freezes well.
