There is a funny story as to how this recipe came to be. Target had some plant-based (meatless) sausage on clearance and though we are not vegan, we are open to trying new things and lowering our meat intake, so we decided to give it a go. 


I cooked up the Pure Farmland Plant-Based Breakfast Patties and tasted one and thought it was not bad. It definitely did not taste like a real sausage patty, but on its own it was alright, but not my favorite, so the next thing I knew I was looking up recipes to see what I could chop it up and throw it into to make it better. 


Breakfast casseroles caught my eye and I noticed very similar things between all the recipes I found, but the one thing they all had in common was that most used a dozen eggs. After that, it seemed to be whatever you wanted or had on hand, which meant I could throw in the chopped up sausage patties and it turned out amazing! But honestly, we will probably just skip the plant-based meats from now on or add in some real sausage.



Easy Veggie & Egg Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Adapted From: All Recipes
Prep Time: ~15 - 30 minutes
Cook Time: ~50 - 60 minutes
Servings: ~10 - 12


Ingredients

  • 12 large eggs
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 bag shredded cheese (1.5 - 2 cups)
    • I used Colby, but you can use cheddar or whatever you think will taste good!
  • 1 bag frozen spinach (12 - 16 oz)
    • cooked and drained
  • 5 sweet mini peppers
    • or 1-2 red, yellow, or orange bell peppers
    • chopped
  • 1 small yellow or sweet onion
    • chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sausage (12 - 16oz) 

Notes: 
  • To make vegetarian, just leave out the sausage or use a plant-based sausage instead. 
  • Onions and peppers are optional, so you can leave them out if you are not a fan.


Directions

Step 1: 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.


Step 2: 

If using sausage, cook sausage in skillet according to package directions, till brown and crumbly, and drain off grease. 

If using plant-based breakfast patties, draining is not required, and chop up into small pieces. 


Step 3: 

While sausage is cooking, cook your frozen spinach according to package directions and drain well.


Step 4: 

Beat eggs and milk together in a large bowl. 


Step 5: 

Stir in cheese, spinach, peppers, onions, oregano, salt, and pepper into the egg mixture. Mix well.


Step 6:

Pour mixture into prepared baking dish.


Step 7:

Bake uncovered in the preheated oven until a toothpick or knife inserted into the center of the casserole comes out clean, about 50 to 60 minutes. The middle should not be runny and the edges may be lightly browned.

My husband has wanted chickens for a while now, but it was not until last year that I jumped on the bandwagon. It became one of our criteria when we decided to look for a new house. 


"How many chickens can we have?" was the top question when we decided to see a house and eventually we found a house we loved that would allow us up to five chickens. We made the move at the end of August 2019 so there was no time of course to build a coop and get chickens, so that became our goal for 2020. 


Of course, we could not just have any normal run of the mill chicken coop, and being a Doctor Who fan, I always wanted a Tardis in our yard, so why not a Tardis chicken coop?


Here is what it looked like unassembled:



Once all the pieces were cut, the next part was painting. We coated the Tardis parts in white primer. For this part we even let our daughter help paint. For the rest of the coop, we used a wood stain for a more natural look.


We then painted the Tardis parts using Sherwin Williams's salty dog, which was the closest we could find to Tardis Blue. We did two coats of blue paint.

 

Then all was left to do was to put it all together!

  

And here is what it looks like completed:

 

We got all our Tardis Police Box decals and metal sign from ApplicablePunDecals on Etsy.
We used a solar-powered light so the Tardis light does work at night!


Here are some pictures of the inside of the Tardis coop:

 

The top photo shows what it looked like before we added the straw and roosts. We plan on putting two nesting boxes where the Tardis doors open once our chickens are old enough. They are currently seven weeks.

 

The added on back part to the Tardis also has a door that lifts up, which makes it easier to change the chickens' food and water. 

The coop can hold up to five chickens comfortably. 

Some have asked why we positioned the Tardis Coop where we did as it can't really be seen. Reason one, we live in the city, so the rules require the coop to be in the backyard, and so the only people who could see our coop are our neighbors. Reason two, we built it close to our back door, so we wouldn't have to trek through snow in the winter to check on the chickens and collect eggs.

Well, that is our Tardis Chicken Coop! I will do another post later that focuses on our chickens, but until then, you can follow our chicken adventure on Instagram! Username: whovianchickens
