Breakfast Casserole

Being a big fan of breakfast I have made a few different types of breakfast casseroles.  I found another version on the Quirky Cooking site and it is delicious.  This is a Thermomix recipe and I used the Bellini however I think it can be easily adapted using a food processor and frying pan.  I also used minced pork instead of beef.

Mine actually has a close resemblance to the photo on the original recipe - happy about that.

Breakfast Casserole.

1kg sweet potato, roughly chopped
1 brown onion, quartered
2 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper
2 tablespoons coconut oil
500g minced pork
⅛ teaspoon ground sage
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons coconut aminos (you can also use tamari or soy sauce)
8-10 eggs (I used 8 as ours were quite large and it was plenty)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 zucchini, quartered

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Lightly grease a 34 x 22cm rectangular baking dish.

Place the potatoes, onion, garlic, salt and some ground black pepper into the Bellini bowl and process until chopped finely.

Melt coconut oil in a large frying pan and add the potato mixture.  Stir whilst frying until browned and cooked.  Transfer to prepared baking dish and spread evenly.

Place mince, sage, cayene pepper, ¼ teaspoon oregano and coconut aminos into Bellini bowl.  Mix for 15 seconds on speed three.  Cook five minutes at steaming temperature on speed two.  The mince will be slightly cooked only.  Place into a separate bowl and set aside.

Place eggs, garlic powder, onion powder and ground black pepper into Bellini bowl and mix for ten seconds on speed four.  

Drizzle half the egg mixture over the potatoes.

Spread the mince evenly over the layer of egg.

Mince is barely cooked.

Add zucchini to the remaining egg mixture and chop five seconds on speed five.  Pour over the mince layer and top with ¼ teaspoon oregano.

Ready for baking.

Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove foil and bake a further 30 minutes until set and browned.

I sliced and froze as individual portions.  All I need to do now is pop one out of the freezer the night before and reheat for breakfast.
