Savory sweet potato and sausage breakfast casserole|Ripped Jeans and Bifocals


  • 1 1 lb tube Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage
  • 5 cups peeled and small-diced sweet potatoes. (This is about 3 large or 5 small sweet potatoes.)
  • 1 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 small zucchini, small diced
  • 1 tsp dried sage
  • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 6 eggs (poached or fried)
  • Olive oil (optional)
  • Ground nutmeg (optional)


  1. Wash and chop fresh vegetables

  2. Cook Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until thoroughly cooked. Drain and set aside, leaving the drippings in the pan.

  3. Add sweet potatoes, onion, and zucchini to the sausage dripping. I added a drizzle of olive oil to the sausage dripping, just to make sure my vegetables were evenly coated.

  4. Cook over medium heat, frequently stirring until vegetables are soft and sweet potatoes are tender – about 20 minutes.

  5. Transfer drained sausage and cooked vegetables to a 9x11 baking dish and mix all ingredients together.

  6. Heat in a 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes.

  7. Top with poached or fried eggs.

  8. Sprinkle with ground nutmeg, if desired.
