Healthy Easy egg dinner or brunch

I love this meal because everyone in the family loves it, it's healthy, filling & easy to make. You can make any salad you like, but I paired the egg dishes with oven potatoes & Kale salad with a side of oranges. I like oranges with eggs because the vitamin c helps you absorb the iron in the eggs more efficiently!

For Kale salad, I make a vinagrette with: chopped garlic, orange juice, lemon juice, salt/pepper & soy sauce. Mix as you wish, I used about a cup of each of the juices, 2 cloves or garlic & 2 tbsps of soy sauce. Toss well.

Then I make 2 eggs strata's. I make a vegetable one for the vegetarians in the family & a sausage one for the meat eaters.

Vegetable Strata:

Sausage Strata:

For  Veggie strata, Just saute 1 onion chopped, & veggies of choice chopped in olive oil. Example: Mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini, spinach. Saute until tender & season with salt/pepper.

For Sausage strata, saute onion & 6-8 breakfast sausage links cup up until cooked & tender. You could also add bacon if you wish.

In a separate bowl, beat 12 eggs with 2 cups of milk. Grease 2 separate baking dishes. In one dish put veggie mixture, in other sausage mixture. Crumble bread (partly stale) over each dish to cover vegetables. Put about 1 cup of cheddar cheese/parmesan cheese over each baking dish mixture. I like to add some feta too for more delicious flavor!! Then put 1/2 egg/milk mixture in each pan. You can season with more salt/pepper if you wish. 

Bake 375 degrees until solid & browned on the top, about 1/2 hour to 40 minutes.

It's an easy brunch, or dinner! Here it is plated:

I also cooked chopped potatoes, onions in oven which were tossed with olive oil & seasoned with salt/pepper. Delish! Enjoy!
