News flash! I love egg bakes! I look forward to making them, eating them, and well, eating them again! Ha! This Clean Eating Turkey Sausage Egg Bake is sure to win you over with its huge flavor and simple ingredients.

In my previous food life, I would have never thought an egg bake without cheddar cheese, bread, and a condensed cream of something soup would be a dish I would look forward to.

However, over the years I have weaned myself, yes, I said weaned, off of eating so much cheese. Cheese was my homeboy! Uncle Jon can attest to this and will gladly share his story of me and cheese at any time with you. Embarrassing….

This dish is so good, you will not even miss the usual bread, cheese, and condensed soups found in most egg bakes.  Plus, your body will thank you for fueling it with nutritious ingredients! Healthy and clean eating breakfast dishes ROCK! Not only is this dish filling, but it is gluten-free and SO flavorful! Don't let the simple ingredients fool you, it is delicious.

The HUGE flavor in this casserole are surprising considering the healthy and simple ingredients. The spicy turkey sausage and other seasonings paired well with with Sarah’s farm fresh eggs to produce a flavorful dish. I just love it when Sarah has extra eggs from her beautiful hens to share with me!

I chose to refrigerate this dish overnight and pull it out in the morning to bake. However, you can prepare the entire casserole and bake it right away if you want. Feel free to substitute different vegetables, spices, or use plain ground turkey sausage. Like I said, egg dishes are incredibly versatile and do well when you need to substitute the ingredients you have on hand! Healthy and clean eating breakfast dishes ROCK!

This Clean Eating Turkey Sausage Egg Bake makes 6 large portions. I ate mine with a side of fruit and coffee. Of course, the 9×13 pan you bake it in can be divided into 9-12 smaller portions. If I was feeding a crowd, I would pair it with these amazing Blueberry & Coconut Scones and Honey Lime Rainbow Fruit Salad. I will warn you, the scones are so delicious it’s stupid. Yes, stupidly delicious.

Ingredients
  • 1 lb Hot Turkey breakfast ground sausage
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 3 kale leaves, destemmed and chopped
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/16 tsp cayenne powder
  • 2 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
Servings: large portions
Instructions
  1. Lightly spray a 9x13 glass pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Brown turkey sausage and break up into small pieces as you cook it. After the sausage is browned, remove from pan (leave the drippings in pan) and place in the bottom of the 9x13 glass pan.
  3. In the same saute pan you cooked the sausage, add the chopped onions and saute in pan drippings until just tender. Add in the chopped kale and wilt for about 2 minutes. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  4. Add the veggies on top of the browned sausage in the 9x13 pan.
  5. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the eggs, almond milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne.
  6. Pour egg mixture over veggies and meat in glass pan.
  7. Top with diced tomatoes. Sprinkle with salt for added flavor.
  8. Now add the last ingredient, Parmesan cheese! Sprinkle over the entire pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight or put right into a 400 degree oven. Bake for 40 minutes or until the top is puffy and slightly browned. Be careful to not undercook. There is nothing worse than a runny egg bake 😉
  9. See...puffy 🙂 Enjoy!

  1. This sounds really good! I pinned it to my husband’s breakfast board. I am trying to be more creative for him, because he has been patient while my diet was restricted! It is hard to find egg recipes that don’t include cheese. 🙂

      1. Hi Kristie! You can eliminate the cheese altogether and it will still be delicious or try substituting nutritional yeast. I find it is a great replacement in soups and on popcorn in lieu of cheese 🙂

  2. Another yummy recipe from you guys! I need to save these for later! It’s really a balanced meal, protein, omega threes, vegetables, bring it on over 😉

    Thanks for linking up at Favorite things Friday! Make sure to check in next week to see if you were featured!

  3. Brunch is my fave meal, sign me up for this yumminess! Thank you so much for sharing this on Making Memories Mondays! Hope to see you back Sun night 9PM EST! 🙂

  4. Hello Gorgeous ladies! This looks incredible! Thank you so much for sharing it with us. Pinned and tweeted. I hope to see you tonight at 7 pm, so we can party with you! Lou Lou Girls

  5. Why am I always suddenly STARVING when I read your recipe posts?! 😉 I don’t know why I haven’t done egg baked dishes but I seriously need to start! This looks amazing (and I would have never thought to use kale! For some reason I automatically go to ‘spinach’). Thanks for sharing, and for linking up to ‘Favorite Things Friday’ with Simply Rachel & Hip Homeschooling! Always super happy to have you! =)

    1. You make me laugh Rachel! I wouldn’t do doing my job if the recipes didn’t make you hungry 🙂 Thanks for the kind words, and yes, start making egg bakes girl! They are AWESOME!

  6. My family loves this recipe! We enjoy having breakfast for dinner and this is an easy and delicious option. I have to sub regular milk for almond milk due to an allergy in the family, but other than that I stick to the script and it’s a winner every time! Thanks Sammi!

    1. Oh Christie, I am so glad you love this recipe too! You are right, this bake is perfect as “brinner”! My kids are always excited to have breakfast for dinner…who am I kidding? I do too!
