This is a recipe I created after my boyfriend described an egg casserole I couldn't find a recipe for. He took this with him on a hunting trip and everyone loved it.

I made a variation of this for a low carb diet. I intended to add the spinach but ended up leaving it out so we will add that next time. We used 2 packages of thin bacon, 1 can black olives, 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream, 2+ cups of Tillamook medium cheddar, 12 brown eggs and 3 oz. of crumbled feta. 40 min at 350 ° Top with Darigold sour cream. Easy and delicious :) Read More

This is a good start but as written it lacks flavor. I believe it needs a full tsp of oregano, some garlic, S&P and some minced onions to reach its full potential. Thanks, Lauren Read More

I added one additional egg for a full dozen. I made this with fresh spinach torn into pieces - about 2/3 of a bag. I used Jimmy Dean hot sausage and also added 2 cubes of frozen minced garlic and 2 cubes of frozen minced basil. The basil added great flavor! Read More

Great base recipe. I disagree with those who say it needs salt, as I added salt to the egg mixture and felt that it was a little too salty. I used fresh spinach and sautéed it in a little garlic and olive oil before putting it into the casserole. I also sautéed mushrooms in a little butter and threw those in. I minced an onion and sautéed it with the sausage as another reviewer suggested to ensure that there would be enough flavor. I will be making it again! Read More

Ok. I added to it. I added spinach and some mushrooms. The sausage I used was a hot Italian sausage. I did not need to used that much oregano. So only use a 1 teaspoon. If you are going to use hot sausage. Read More

This was very tasty and easy. I used fresh spinach because that is what I had on hand. I simply tore the leaves and added them to the mixture. Easy and delicious! I also added some garlic powder and cooked a little onion with the sausage. This is a great basic recipe that allows all kinds of add ons. I am thinking mushrooms would be good too! Read More

My family absolutely loved this. I changed it up some. I used 14 large eggs instead of 11 eggs as others suggested, I used 1/2 tea of oregano, 1/2 teas of basil, 3/4 teas of garlic, instead of 1 teas of oregano. I used 1 cup mild cheddar and 1 cup of sharp cheddar, instead of 2 cups sharp cheddar. I also added 1/2 cup of sautéed onions and sautéed mushrooms. After mixing it all together I topped it off with a little bit of mozzarella cheese and cheddar cheese. You do not need to add salt or pepper, the Jimmy Deans mild sausage has lots of flavor. One thing I did do is, the night before I combined the eggs, cooked sausage, spices, and the completely drained frozen spinach (I squeezed excess moisture from spinach) and refrigerated in a covered 9x13 dish overnight. Next day I added the sautéed onions, mushrooms and the cheese. Easy!!! Read More
