Cook 5 or so pancakes to line the bottom of your baking dish with-I used a healthy buckwheat mix and only added water and unsweetened applesauce to make them. (You can also use Greek yogurt instead of applesauce.)
Add 1 cup frozen hash browns
Next, rough chop mushrooms-about 1/2 cup and cook 1/4 lb of sweet or spicy sausage with minced garlic and some chopped onions to add to the mixture (mine was left over from another dinner so I didn’t have to make it this go around)
Layer the meat and mushroom mixture on top of the pancakes and hash browns.
Next, add a 1/2 cup shredded cheese-I used a Colby jack mixture
Lastly, mix 4 eggs, 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup flour with pepper, parsley, red pepper flakes and hot sauce. pour egg mixture over and bake at 375 for 30 to 35 min.
Packed with protein and good carbs!!! So delicious! I love this so much because you can use whatever you have around, add any veggies you have, salsa, use ground turkey instead of sausage, omit the pancakes, change the cheese (spinach and feta with egg and hash would be great!!!) No butter was used to make this masterpiece. This my friends is what heaven looks like or at least what a kick ass brinner (breakfast+dinner) looks like !
