Egg Bakes

Ingredients

For the sausage:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 pound 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the bakes:

  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (soaked in oil), finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped chives

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly spray 6 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. To make the sausage: in a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and cook the onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or until the onion has browned and softened. Remove from the skillet, set aside, and let cool. In a medium bowl, combine the turkey, oregano, fennel, basil, parsley, salt, pepper, and the onion mixture. Mix with your hands until thoroughly blended.
  3. Form patties of the desired width and thickness (3 inches wide by 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick works well) by hand. Cook in a skillet over medium heat, flipping midway, until the meat is no longer pink.
  4. Set the patties aside to cool, then chop and crumble them into bite-size pieces. This creates the "sausage."
  5. To make the bakes: In a large bowl, combine the sausage, broccoli, cheese, tomatoes, basil, oregano, onion powder, and salt.
  6. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs. Pour the eggs into the broccoli mixture and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture evenly among the 6 prepare muffin cups and top with the chives.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of an egg bakes comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 minutes before serving. Store in the refrigerator.
