This past Spring, I picked up this free magazine at one of our local grocery stores. I knew that eventually I would be making both of these recipes.

I made the Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Grapes and Prosciutto shortly after picking up the magazine, and we loved them.

I’ve had the magazine on my kitchen counter top opened to this page for several weeks now. Yesterday was the day.

This was super easy to make and I have no idea why in the heck I waited so long to cook this up! 

Bake the crust. Add cooked veggies. Add cooked meat. Add eggs. Bake.

I tweaked things a bit. I removed the cream and the cheese from the original recipe. I used different veggies and I added in cooked pork sausage. 

You could use a variety of veggies and a variety of meats to give this all sorts of different flavors. Mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli? How about topping this off with some sliced tomatoes or avocado?

I used Pork Sausage, but this would also be amazing with some crumbled bacon, or diced ham. Yummmmm.

Any kind of cheese would be delish in this too!

Okay, this is what I had on hand yesterday, and we thought that it tasted great!

    I know you said that some of those kitchen tools can be tough for you to use. I did use a mandoline to slice my potatoes, but I have used a knife to thinly slice them too. I hope you get to make this. You could have a tasty breakfast four days in a row!!

  2. This recipe looks great and I love the idea of sweet potato crust.
    It’s really hard to choose a new recipe to make with so many out there.
    I like how you always make recipes your own.
    Writing this one down but waiting for a cool day to make it.
