  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease a casserole dish (9″ x 13″) with butter or olive oil.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl and add cooked sausage, spinach, tomatoes, cooked vegetables, and full fat cottage cheese.
  4. Bake for about 45 minutes or until the top is lightly browned.
  5. Sprinkle with shredded full-fat cheese, salt, pepper and/or flax seed, if desired.

This breakfast has the protein, carbohydrate and fat all in one that you need to have a great start to your day! You could add a handful of fresh fruit or ½ cup of sweet potato on the side for some starchy carb!
