Vegetable, Sausage, and Cheese Egg Bake

I served up this gluten-free egg bake on Christmas morning for a group breakfast and a second time this week for a big family potluck brunch! The first time I made it with mushrooms. The second time with broccoli It’s perfect for a crowd and can be cut into any size squares. It also reheats well for a high protein breakfast or snack on a busier morning. Perfectly healthy, tasty, and satisfying!
