Sausage & Egg Biscuit Bake Using Johnsonville Naturals Sausage

Breakfast for Dinner

I am always looking for quick and easy recipes, especially in the fall.  For some reason I really don’t like to cook as much.  Maybe it’s the weather or maybe its that it starts to get dark earlier and I then just get a bit more lazy.  Either way, quick and easy recipes always capture my attention.  I am also always looking for ways to make my favorite meals healthier.  My husband had dental work and I need to come up with softer foods for him to eat and there isn’t anything softer (unless you go to a liquid form) than eggs.  So I whipped up one of my family’s favorite baked egg dish, only this time I opted to use a healthier version of breakfast sausage. 

Johnsonville Naturals

 

Today I used Johnsonville’s Naturals Breakfast Sausage.  You might be asking yourself what the difference is between Johnsonville’s Naturals as opposed to other sausages (Italian, Breakfast & Brats).  The difference, in my opinion, is huge.  The Johnsonville Naturals is just that, 100% all-natural sausage.  There are NO artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.  It does not contain fillers and (the breakfast sausage) is pork raised without added hormones (which I personally love).  If there is one thing my family loves it’s breakfast foods, morning, noon or night so I couldn’t wait to put the recipe together.

First, we need to brown our sausage as in the photo above.  Once that’s done, I just set them aside to cool off a bit so I can cut them into pieces.

Next, it’s time to put the rest of it together, starting with 10 eggs.

After you have beaten the eggs, we need to set up our baking dish.  You’ll want to spray the bottom of your 9×13 glass casserole dish and line the bottom of it with your buttermilk biscuits.  Then I top it with my cut up Johnsonville Naturals breakfast sausage links.  Yes, I do admit to eating a link and I found it to be filled with flavorful spices that tasted great!  It made me anxious for this dinner to be completed!

Once I have that taken care of it’s time to mix the combine the egg with chopped onion, pepper and cheese.

It then goes into a 350-degree oven (uncovered) for about 30 minutes.  Take it out, serve immediately and enjoy!

The fun thing about this recipe is that you can add any veggie you want and it would still taste good.  My husband likes it because it is very light and doesn’t leave you super full.  I think next time I make it I am going to use reduced-fat croissants to make it even healthier!

Ingredients
  1. Green Peppers
  2. Italian Sausage Links {5-6}
  3. Potatoes {5-6} or more depending on how much you love potatoes
  4. Salt
  5. Pepper
  6. Garlic Salt
  7. Olive Oil
Instructions
  1. Cut up sausage, green pepper {you can add red peppers and onions if you want and I diced mine because I don’t like big chunks}, and potatoes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place all cut ingredients into a 13×9 pan, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on some salt, pepper and garlic salt. Cook for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes are tender and sausage is no longer pink. Be sure to mix it a few times so it doesn’t stick and burn. You want to make sure you coat it pretty good with oil. Serve with bread or ON bread and it’s DELISH!!! Easy peasy!
