teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
ounces button mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper, to taste
box (10 oz) Cascadian Farm™ premium organic frozen spinach, defrosted and squeezed dry
ounces crumbled feta cheese
slices pork breakfast sausage, cooked and cooled (about 1 pound)
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium high heat. Add in the red pepper flakes, garlic and onion, and cook until just translucent and fragrant, about 3 minutes.
Add in the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the mushrooms are tender and they have released all of their moisture (the pan should look dry). Add in the spinach, and cook just until the spinach is warmed through, about 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a paper towel-covered plate, top with additional paper towels and press down to absorb any extra moisture.
Spread the spinach mixture in one layer in the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle the feta on top. In a large glass measuring cup, whisk the eggs until light and frothy. Pour over the spinach mixture evenly. Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until the egg is completely set. When the baking pan is cool enough to touch, run a knife along the sides, and then invert onto a cutting board. Cut into six equal-size egg patties.
To assemble the sandwiches: Top the bottom half of an English muffin with an egg patty, a sausage patty, and a slice of Swiss cheese. Top with other half of the English muffin.
To freeze: Wrap each sandwich tightly in plastic wrap, then place in a large zip-top freezer bag. Freeze for up to six weeks.
To reheat: Unwrap from plastic wrap, then wrap in a paper towel, microwave at 70% power for 2-3 minutes, or until the sandwich is heated through.
- To make sure your sandwiches don’t get soggy, try freezing all the components separately, then assembling. Freeze the English muffins, freeze the sausage patties, and freeze the egg patties. Then, working quickly, assemble the sandwiches and get them back in the freezer.
- Power varies by microwave; you might have to do a little bit of experimenting to get the right time to reheat your sandwich.
- Don’t have a microwave? Defrost sandwich in the fridge overnight, and then heat in a 350°F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
