Egg and Sausage Pie

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb chorizo or other sausage
   (or all ground beef)
1 onion, chopped
1 orange pepper, chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped mushrooms
2 cups fresh spinach, torn in to
   smaller pieces
6 eggs
Pinch salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
6 tablespoons coconut flour

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees ºF. 
  • Brown ground beef and sausage together in skillet. 
  • Add onion and pepper. 
  • When meat is almost browned, add mushrooms and spinach. 
  • Allow mixture to cool.  (I usually do this part the day before, put everything in the fridge and do the rest just before meal time.)
  • Beat eggs with salt and baking powder. Beat in coconut flour on low speed until it is all blended.
  • Add beef mixture, stir well.
  • Lightly oil cake pan with coconut oil, fill and spread evenly.  
  • Bake for 45 minutes or until cooked through.  Baking time also depends on what size cake pan you used.  Obviously, a 13 x 8 pan will cook faster than an 8 x 8.  The 45 minutes is based on the larger pan.
