KETO ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND SWEET MINI-PEPPERS

KETO ITALIAN SAUSAGE AND SWEET MINI-PEPPERS. For a tasty low-carb breakfast, anyone who likes sausage and peppers will love this Breakfast Bake!

Another ingredient I love is the recipe also uses Sweet Mini Peppers. We cut the mini pepper crosswise to make rings in this breakfast bake, and I loved the sweetness they added.

For extra protein and creaminess, this breakfast bake also has rinsed and drained cottage cheese curds, grated Mozzarella cheese, and a little Parmesan for the top.

INGREDIENTS

  • 5 links uncooked sweet turkey Italian Sausage
  • 4 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • (rinsed with cold water and well-drained)1 1/2 cup cottage cheese,
  • 1 cup sliced Sweet Mini Peppers
  • (plus more for garnish if desired) 1/4 cup sliced green onions,
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning
  • fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • 10 eggs, well beaten
  • (optional but good) 1/4 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese for the top

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190 C.
  2. In a large frying pan, heat TWO tsp. olive oil; Out of the casings, squeeze the sausage, and until it’s nicely browned, cook sausage over medium-high heat, with a turner or old-fashioned potato masher, breaking it apart as it cooks. (when it cooks, turkey sausage will release some water; before the sausage starts to brown, you’ll need to evaporate all the water .)
  3. Put cottage cheese into a fine-mesh strainer while sausage cooks, rinse with cold water, and let it drain well.
  4. Sweet Mini Peppers, cut the ends off, with a sharp spoon, scrape out seeds and membranes, and cut peppers into round slices. Slice green onions.
  5. Spray a 9.5 ” x 11″ class casserole dish with spray(non-stick) when the sausage is browned and put sausage into the casserole dish.
  6. Into the frying pan, you cooked the peppers in, put the other 2 tsp. olive oil, add the sliced mini-peppers, and until the peppers barely start to soften and get some sausage flavor from the pan, cook just 2-3 minutes.
  7. In the casserole dish, layer the peppers over the sausage, then with the drained cottage cheese, top.
  8. Then to the casserole dish, add the grated Mozzarella and sliced green onions. Season with pepper and Spike Seasoning.
  9. Into a bowl, break eggs and until yolks and whites are all combined, beat well and pour eggs over the other ingredients. To gently “stir” so that all ingredients are evenly combined, use a fork; then top with the Parmesan(coarsely grated).
  10. For 35-40 minutes, bake the breakfast bake, or until it’s the top is starting to brown and completely set.
  11. Serve hot, for garnish, topped with more sliced green onions. With a dollop of sour cream, this is also good on top.
