This breakfast casserole won’t teach you how to pass guard, but it will make you feel better afterwards.

This is a first, I had the fantastic UK based Jiu Jitsu Fightwear & Apparel company Roll Supreme put in a request for a post workout or training omelet. Thus the creation of the “Post-Roll Supreme Omelet Casserole.” So everyone make sure to go thank Jack @RollSupreme!

Do you like breakfast sausage, eggs and hash browns? I sure as hell do. But after training I don’t always want to cook after training but want something more than just a shake. Ever have that feeling? Of course you have. Yet we need to recover what we lost from that grueling training session. What better way than with an all-in-one breakfast casserole packed with lean turkey meat, sweet potato hash and eggs? You get a fantastic amount of protein with a good ratio of carbs from this simple and easy dish. The best part is that is can be prepare in advance, portioned and refrigerated or frozen. Then a simple reheat after training and you are good to go! We put so much time and effort into training; let that enthusiasm carry over into what you are eating, crush this casserole, not your training partners.

I hear if you are wearing this shirt while cooking this casserole you instantly get your black belt. Just a rumor though.

Post “Roll Supreme” Omelet Casserole

Makes 6-8 portions
Ingredients
1 Sweet potato, peeled
1 Onion, small diced
1 lb Ground lean turkey meat
1 tsp Ground sage
½ cup Fresh spinach
2 Tbsp Ketchup
¾ cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
8 Eggs
½ cup Milk
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
3-4 Dashes of your favorite hot sauce
1 tsp Garlic powder
1 medium-large casserole dish

Preparation

  1. First thing you need to do is preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. While the oven is heating, place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of oil.
  3. Toss in your onions, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper and sweat them down for 2-3 minutes until they become translucent and aromatic.
  4. Once your onions are like you after class, sweated down and smelly, turn the heat up to high and add in ground turkey meat, sage, and season again with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Using a wooden spoon break up the turkey meat as best as you can while getting a good sear on it. Cook for about 5 minutes until you have developed nice color on the turkey meat. Don’t worry about cooking it all the way through, it will finish in the oven.
  5. Turn off the heat and drain any fat from the pan. We are eating healthy remember?
  6. Set the pan aside for a second while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  7. Combine eggs, milk, garlic powder, hot sauce, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp black pepper in a large bowl and whisk vigorously for about 30 seconds.
  8. Spray the casserole dish with a little cooking spray or rub with butter to prevent sticking. Time to work in layers.
  9. Using a peeler “shave” ribbons of sweet potato directly into the bottom of the casserole dish. As you peel and get closer to the core of the potato just rotate it around until you are left with a little thing core. You want about 1” – 1 ½“ of sweet potato in the dish. Top with spinach evenly.
  10. Add in turkey meat, ketchup and cheese evenly over the sweet potato and pour over egg mixture to just cover. If your dish is shallow and the egg doesn’t cover it, simply whisk a few more eggs with a little milk and add them in.
  11. Place the whole thin in the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the eggs have set in the middle.
  12. Remove from the oven and wait for 5 minutes to cool down.
  13. Slice and eat immediately, portion into slices for post training and refrigerate or even freeze portions for later use. This is fantastic hot and cold.

Eat better, train harder.
