Spicy Sausage and Caramelized Onion Breakfast Bake

This is probably one of my all-time favorite breakfasts.  I think my husband would agree.  Even though it says it is 8 servings, it will usually only last two days in our home as we typically end up eating for breakfast and dinner.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
1 Medium Onion – Diced
2 Tbs. Butter
3 Tbs. Garlic – Minced
1lb. Hot Italian Breakfast Sausage
8 oz. Mushrooms – Sliced
1 Tbs. Hot Sauce
10 Large Eggs
1 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese – Shredded
2/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese – Grated
Salt and Pepper – To Taste

(2 Tbs. Peace and Love)


In a large sauté pan over low-medium heat, add onion, butter, garlic, and salt and pepper.  Cook until onions are nice and caramelized – About 20 minutes.

While the onions are cooking – In a large skillet, brown the sausage.  Once the sausage is nearly finished cooking, add mushrooms, tomato paste, and hot sauce, and sauté 5-10 more minutes.  Mix caramelized onions into meat mixture.

In a large mixing bowl, crack all 10 eggs and fork whisk.  To the eggs, mix in cheddar cheese and Parmesan cheese.

Preheat oven to 350°

In a 2 quart glass baking dish, pour meat into the bottom of the dish and spread evenly.  Pour egg mixture over the top of the meat.  Use a fork to poke holes down into the meat to allow the eggs to mix just slightly into the meat.

Bake for 40 minutes.  Once finished, the top should be a nice golden brown color.

I add a dollop of sour on top when I serve it.  (The sour cream is not counted in the nutritional information.)

    This one looks delicious but I would skip the “hot” sausage and the “hot” sauce . I do not like “hot” stuff. I will let you know. I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be as delicious as the “hot” one. Thanks again for your recipes……….

    This looks delicious with easily accessible ingredients! Might have to give this a try, but since I’m the only one in the house that would eat it (husband is very picky with food), I will probably scale down the recipe to a smaller ovenware size.

    Thanks so much for creating such yummy, low carb recipes. I follow a Ketogenic diet, so your website is very helpful to me. I track my diet on SparkPeople.com so I added this recipe to their database and said I had adapted it from yours at peaceloveandlowcarb.com.

    This was AMAZING! Been eating low carb for four months and stumbled across your recipe and blog. So yum!! I did make a couple substitutions. I don’t like sausage or mushrooms so I used ground beef and tomatoes instead. Delish!

    I’m just wondering does it taste like egg or is it like crusty? I’m not a fan of egg taste. But this looks good

    Hi Kyndra,
    Thanks for this recipe. My husband loves this and it’s his favorite breakfast! We have also enjoyed many of your delicious soup recipes, I especially like the Reuben soup! You do a great job creating low carb, grain free recipes that are so satisfying. Keep up the good work! I have already purchased one of your cookbooks and have my eye on another.

    Thanks again!
