Serving Size: 8 servings


  • 10 eggs, beaten
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt (2% or whole milk)
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • 3/4 pound ground sausage (pork, turkey, chicken, or veggie)
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 oz goat cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Ground black pepper

Kitchen Tools:

  • Cast Iron Skillet or 9″x13″ Baking Dish


Prep Work (Night before):
  1. Combine the eggs, yogurt, and pesto in a large mixing bowl. Add all of the ingredients (BUT reserve about half of the goat cheese) and mix well until combined. Place the bowl in the refrigerator and let it sit overnight (or at least an hour). This will help all of the flavors combine together to create an even more scrumptious dish.
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare the cast iron skillet or 9×13″ baking dish by spraying with cooking oil.
  2. Pour the egg mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 45-60 minutes or until a knife comes out of the center of the pan clean. Enjoy warm!
