2 lbs hot breakfast turkey sausage
8 large eggs
16 large egg whites (or 3 cups liquid egg whites)
10 oz butternut squash, cubed, frozen
10 oz sweet potato, cubed, frozen
10 oz greens of your choosing (spinach, kale, arugula) roughly chopped or torn
1 yellow onion, diced
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp salted butter, softened
Bake squash and sweets according to their package.
While squash and sweets are cooking, cook onion and sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat until cooked through — chopping/crumbling the sausage as you go.
Once squash and sweets are done cooking, get your oven to 400 degrees, and use salted butter to coat a large glass baking dish (9×13). Really work that butter in all corners and areas where food will be, dudes. This is how we get a crispy crust and prevent our food from sticking.
In another bowl, whisk egg, whites, garlic powder and salt until all combined and frothy like.
Place all ingredients (vegetables, eggs, sausage) in the glass baking dish and mix well so that everything is evenly coated in the egg mixture.
Cook for 30 minutes, until eggs are solid and edges are browned and crispy bois.
This is a bomb ass meal prep dish as it reheats well. Double this recipe to feed 2 people breakfast for a week.
