Scrambled Egg Spinach Casserole
 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon plus ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ⅛ teaspoon plus ¼ teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 cups milk
  • ½ pound bulk sausage (I used turkey sausage)
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 12 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1½ cups crumbled feta cheese
Topping:
  • ½ cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
Method
  1. Melt butter in a small saucepan. Stir in flour, nutmeg, and ⅛ teaspoon each salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil, and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, cook sausage, onion, and remaining salt and pepper in a large skillet. Drain; and transfer mixture to a greased 13x9 inch baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and half-and-half. Stir in spinach, feta, and the cooled white sauce. Pour over sausage mixture. Cover dish and refrigerate overnight.
  4. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. For topping, toss breadcrumbs with the butter and spinkle over the top of the casserole. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
  5. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 45 to 50 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand approximately 10 minutes before slicing.
