Cauli-Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole."
I love the idea of making a crust out of cauliflower! This one came together easily yesterday afternoon, and made a tasty breakfast this morning. You could adapt it to suit using different protein, including veggies, etc.
Paleo Breakfast Cauliflower Pie
1 head cauliflower, riced
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup Kerrygold butter
1 lb. chicken breakfast sausage
6 beaten eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
4 oz. can chopped green chiles
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
pinch black pepper
Preheat oven to 425.
Melt the butter and toss with the cauliflower. Salt and pepper
to taste. Press into the bottom of a round pie plate. Bake
for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and reduce
heat to 375.
While the cauliflower is baking, remove sausage from casing into a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until no longer pink, crumbling with a wooden spoon.
Beat eggs until frothy. Combine cooked sausage with eggs, milk, green chiles, salt, dry mustard, and pepper. Pour egg and
sausage mixture into the prepared crust (I had a big head of cauliflower, so had to pour off a little egg mixture or it would have overflowed!)
Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes or until eggs are set.
