3medium*sweet potatoes(approx. 5" x 2") to make 5 cups spiralized
8ouncesbreakfast or sweet Italian turkey sausage(uncooked/raw)
1/3cupfinely chopped shallot
5ouncesbaby spinachroughly chopped
1/2cupgrated parmesan cheesedivided
3/4cupcrumbled feta cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 2 – 2 ½ quart casserole with non-stick cooking spray.
Trim ends off sweet potatoes and cut to fit spiralizer (if necessary).
Use peeling blade and fine spiralizing blade to peel and spiralize sweet potatoes. You should have about 5 cups of sweet potato spirals.
Remove sausage from casing and crumble into a large non-stick skillet (10-inch) over medium heat. (I usually don’t need to add any oil, but if it seems dry, add a tablespoon of oil.)
Cook for about 5 minutes until browned; break apart any larger pieces as needed.
Remove to a paper towel lined plate.
Add a tablespoon of oil to pan, if needed, and cook shallots for about 1-2 minutes or until softened.
Sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon salt.
Add spinach and cook, stirring, until spinach wilts about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.
Whisk together eggs, milk, cream, remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and ¼ cup Parmesan cheese.
Arrange sweet potato spirals in baking dish. Top with sausage, spinach mixture, and feta cheese.
Pour egg mixture evenly over top and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
Bake for 45-55 minutes or until puffed, set in the center and beginning to brown.
*Notes:I used the KitchenAid Spiralizer Stand Mixer Attachment with the fine spiralizing blade and peeling blade.Sweet potatoes are sometimes labeled as “yams.”To Make Ahead: Follow steps #2 and 3 and arrange in baking dish. Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, preheat oven, whisk together egg mixture, pour over casserole, top with Parmesan cheese and bake.
