Cooking my food in bulk has just become a part of my life, it makes it easy during the week when I am busy with other things and don’t feel like cooking.

This recipe has been a real life saver when it comes to breakfast in the weekday mornings, allowing me more time to sleep in and a smaller time cooking 🙂

Put your spinach into a mixing bowl, don’t worry that it will get cold.

4. Start cooking your chorizo and italian sausage. I had to skin my chorizo sausages beforehand so I could break down the meat as much as possible as it cooked. Also preheat your oven to 350 degrees as you start to cook the meat.

Get your chorizo and italian sausage cooking – don’t forget to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

5. Once you are happy with how broken down it is, transfer the chorizo and italian sausage to the mixing bowl with the spinach. Keep as much of the fat in the pan as you can.

6. Add your chopped onion and pepper to the pan, letting it cook in the chorizo and sausage fat.

Your meat and vegetables all in a mixing bowl.

8. Add your cheddar cheese ontop of everything, and give it a small mix – this will melt the cheese a little bit.

Add your cheese to the mixture and give it a stir.

9. Add your egg mixture and mix everything up well. You want an even distribution of the ingredients.

11. Put it into the oven at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

12. If you run a knife through it, it will come out clean and have some texture to it now. Go ahead and take it out of the oven.

When your knife comes out clean, it’s ready to be taken out.

13. Cut into 20 slices, and eat as you need. I keep them in the fridge for about 4 days and eat them as snacks or as breakfast.
