Southern Living


1/2 pound ground pork sausage
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10-ounce) package frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded three-cheese gourmet Cheddar cheese blend, divided
8 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 plum tomato, thinly sliced


Cook ground pork sausage and chopped onion in a skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink; drain.

Toss together sausage mixture, broccoli, and 1/2 cup cheese blend. Spoon into a lightly greased 11- x 7-inch baking dish.

Stir together 1/2 cup cheese blend, eggs, and next 4 ingredients; pour over broccoli mixture.

Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese blend. Arrange tomato on top.

Bake at 350° for 30 minutes; uncover and bake 15 more minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
