Spicy Sausage and Caramelized Onion Breakfast Bake
Prep Time:45 minutes
Cook Time:40 minutes
Total Time:1 hour 25 minutes
Yield:8 Servings 1x
1 medium onion, diced
2 tbsp butter
3 tbsp garlic, minced
1lb hot Italian breakfast sausage
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp hot sauce
10 large eggs
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
sea salt and black pepper, to taste
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.)
