Healthy Breakfast Casserole. Something we make almost weekly in our house! Prep it the night before you want to eat it, then pop it in the oven and serve the next morning. Eggs, cheese, spinach, chicken sausage, hash browns…delicious!



3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided

5 oz container of spinach

3 cups frozen shredded hash browns

1 lb cooked turkey, chicken, or plant-based breakfast sausage

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

7 large eggs

16 oz cottage cheese

1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese


  1. You can prep all of this ahead and put in a 9×13 baking dish, covered in the fridge until ready to put in the oven.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.
  3. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large pan over medium-low heat. Add the spinach and season with salt and pepper. Cook until completely wilted down.
  4. Spread the frozen shredded hash browns in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle the cooked breakfast sausage and cooked spinach over the frozen hash browns in an even layer.
  6. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and the cottage cheese together. Then mix in the cheddar cheese. Pour this mixture over the hash browns, sausage and spinach.
  7. At this point you can either cover this uncooked casserole and place in the fridge, or you can place it in the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes, or until the mixture is firm in the center and the edges are golden brown.
