Sausage and Roasted Pepper Cauliflower Casserole

I have been trying to make up some new casserole dishes. We love our crockpot soups and stews, but sometimes I want something a little firmer. This recipe came as an inspiration from PaleOMG's green chili casserole.

We always buy big jars of roasted bell peppers at Costco, and this was an excellent way to use them! It has a quiche-like texture, but still packs an awesome punch for being so simple.

1) 1 pound of ground sausage
2) 1 large head of cauliflower (or a 2 pound bag of florets)
3) 4 eggs
4) 2 cups of diced, roasted peppers (I used red and yellow because that's what was in the jar) - this was about 8 large peppers, cut into pieces
5) 1 onions, diced
Extra: Salt and Pepper

**Servings: 4

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1) Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add your ground sausage and start to brown it.
2) Cut up your onions and roasted peppers.
3) Add your chopped veggies to your browning sausage, and stir to incorporate. Continue to cook.
4) In the meantime, using the shredding attachment on your food processor or a box grater, grate your cauliflower into "rice".
5) Once your veggies are tender and your pork is cooked through, stir in your cauliflower "rice". Add in salt and pepper to taste at this point. I added about a teaspoon or so of each.
6) Add your 4 eggs to the mixture, and stir to mix thoroughly.
7) Pour all the ingredients from your skillet into a large 9x13 cooking pan, and spread evenly.
8) Bake for 60 minutes at 350 degrees, until firm and browned.
