How to make sausages and stewed eggs
The ingredients for our sausage and egg stew are pretty simple. You’ll want to gather together eggs, milk (or milk substitute), Primal Kitchen Butter Oil, ground chicken sausage, arugula, cauliflower rice, and shredded cheese (we used goat cheese).
Then, in a bowl, beat eggs, milk, 1 tablespoon butter oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
In a saucepan, heat a tablespoon of butter oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the sausage and brown meat, stirring occasionally. Once fully cooked, add the cauliflower rice and cook until tender, then mix in the arugula. Remove the pan from the heat and let the heat from the pan and meat wilt the arugula. Let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
After the sausage mixture has cooled down a bit, whisk the eggs a little bit into the egg mixture so that the eggs don’t scramble. Sprinkle around? of the cheese mixture. Then youSpray butter or butter oil to lubricate the baking dish. Pour in the egg mixture and top with the remaining cheese.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the top and sides of the oven are golden brown and the casserole feels firm to the touch. Let the cake cool, then cut it into 6 or 8 pieces and top with chopped parsley or scallions.
