Here’s the thing… there is no way to make it through a long day without a breakfast that really sticks to your bones.

It just so happens that this weekend is LSU’s first SEC road game of the season and it is a day game.

So in the spirit of fraternity-style kegs and eggs, here is an upgrade to your football breakfast: a dish that pairs well with a mimosa and will keep you going long into the afternoon…. just in time for the grilled duck and old fashioneds.

Yep.  We’re eating all the livelong day.

Here we go:
Quarter biscuits and place in a greased 9″x13″ dish. In a skillet, dice and sauté the onions until they are caramelized. Remove from pan and add spinach. Sauté until wilted. Remove the spinach from the pan and add the sausage. Use a spatula to break up the sausage and cook until it is completely browned.

20130630-214549.jpgTop the biscuits with the onions, spinach, sausage, Velveeta and cheddar. Whisk the eggs, milk, garlic powder, mustard powder, salt and pepper. Pour over the biscuits and other ingredients.
20130630-214432.jpgBake at 350 degrees F for 40-50 minutes, until slightly browned. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
