Sunday Brunch: The Recipe

Since several people have indicated a burning desire to make my Sunday Brunch dish, I thought I would go ahead and post the recipe (since I failed in that the first time).  So hear ya go, peeps!  This is the recipe for the full 12 servings, but it's really easy to cut in half, for a smaller group.

1 pound pork sausage (I used hot sausage)
3/4 cup sliced button mushrooms
1 package frozen spinach (10 oz), thawed and drained
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, divided
1 small onion
3 eggs
1 and 1/2 c. egg substitute
1 cup half and half
1 cup skim milk
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Brown pork sausage with mushrooms and onion, until sausage is no longer pink.  Remove from heat and add spinach and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.  Transfer into a 9x13 baker sprayed with cooking spray.

In a bowl, combine eggs, egg substitute, milk, half and half, and nutmeg.  Beat well and pour over sausage mixture.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.  Top with last 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, and let stand for 5 minutes.

Then serve!  And be amazed at what 195 calories tastes like!
