I love perfectly portioned eggs. I think I fell in love with the idea when I made my baked French eggs. So I wanted to find another variation of a baked egg that was more appealing to a meat eater.
I decided to make what I am calling a southwest baked egg. I planned to use sausage, eggs, onion, green pepper, and cheese.
To make it easier I opted to cook my ground sausage in the microwave. This was easy for me since I have the pampered chef large microwave steamer. Actually this is great for cooking meat in since it has drain holes on the top which are great for draining out the grease.
While the sausage cooks, I minced up my onion and green pepper in my pampered chef manual food processor. The nice thing about the processor is you can keep the veggies larger, but the end result is perfectly minced veggies.
Start by lightly spraying your pan with oil. I love the square shape of my pampered chef brownie pan, so that is what I used.
Next put a layer of the onion and green pepper mixture. I used 1 Tsbp. (Since my 4 year old doesn’t like “green stuff” I left that out of 3 of the portions.)
Next crack 1 egg into each section. Top with salt and pepper.
1 lb ground sausage
12 medium eggs
2-3 small green peppers
Shredded cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste.
