Hearty, warm, delicious, FRESH, and full of protein, these will quickly become your favorite satiating weekday breakfast.



For the egg bake

2 red bell peppers, chopped

1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced

5 ounces baby spinach, roughly chopped

12 eggs

1/2 c cottage cheese

½ teaspoon salt

a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce

For sandwich assembly

1 Dave’s Killer Bread Everything Bagel

1 slice Tillamook Farmstyle Cheddar Cheese

1 Applegate Farms Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patty


For the egg bake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 by 13-inch pan with butter because it works better to create a nonstick surface than cooking spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the bell pepper and green onion and cook until the pepper is tender, about 8-10 minutes. 
  3. Add the spinach to the skillet until wilted, about 2 minutes. Set the pan aside to cool.
  4. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Whisk in the cottage cheese, salt, and hot sauce until well blended.
  5. Transfer the mostly cooled veggies into the egg bowl, and stir to combine. 
  6. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes (keep an eye on it), until the eggs are puffed and no longer wiggle in the center.
  7. Allow to cool then slice into six equal slices and store in glass food storage containers in the fridge.

For the morning sandwich assembly

Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a tinfoil-lined baking sheet with cooking spray (I use avocado oil). 

Place one square of the egg bake on the baking sheet and place the cheese slice on top. Next to the egg slice, place the frozen sausage patty.

Bake for 8-10 minutes until all components are warm throughout and the cheese is melted. Meanwhile, toast your bagel. 

Assemble – bagel, egg and cheese, sausage, and top bagel half. Enjoy!
