  • 2 tablespoons of Ghee or Butter divided
  • 2 shallots
  • 1 large bunch broccoli rabe cleaned, trimmed and cut into 2" pieces
  • 12 ounces (3/4 pound) spicy chicken sausage
  • 2.5 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 18 large eggs divided
  • 1/2 cup club soda
To Prepare:
  1. Grab a 9x13 oven-safe casserole dish, rub the insides with 1 Tablespoon of the Ghee and set aside.

  2. Peel and finely chop shallots. Dice sausage.

  3. Finely chop parsley. Measure 1/2 cup and set aside. Wash broccoli rabe and trim ends. Chop into 1 1/2 to 2" pieces.

  4. Place two large work bowls on the counter top. Divide the egg white and yolks from 12 of the eggs. I like to use my hand but if that isn't your thing, there are many tools out there that you can buy to help with this.

  5. Now, crack the remaining 6 eggs (egg and yolk) into the bowl with the 12 egg yolks.

  6. Pour 1/2 cup club soda into the bowl of egg yolks / eggs.

  7. Whisk the egg whites 1 to 2 minutes until they are foamy. I recommend that you whisk the whites first so that there is no yolk crossover. Even a drop of yolk will change the ability of the white to "fluff" up and get foamy.

  8. Using the same whisk, whisk the egg yolks and eggs with the club soda 1 to 2 minutes until well mixed and there are bubbles on top.[img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/IMG_9198.jpg" width="550"]

To Cook:
  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Heat a very large skillet or pot (large enough to hold the shallot, sausage and uncooked broccoli rabe) over medium high heat. Once hot, add remaining 1 Tablespoon Ghee then chopped shallots and diced chicken sausage. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Add in chopped broccoli rabe along with salt and pepper. Stir to combine and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently.

  3. Add 1 Tablespoon of cold water and cover with lid. Cook 3 to 4 more minutes and remove from heat.

  4. Strain excess liquid and place mixture in a large mixing bowl (or return to pan but be sure not to put it back on the heat).

  5. Toss in chopped parsley and stir to combine.[img src="http://www.everydaymaven.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/IMG_9196.jpg" width="550"]

  6. Pour in eggs / yolks mixture and stir until well distributed. Next, pour in foamy whites. Gently fold the whites in and pour entire mixture into greased casserole dish (You may want to use a spatula or spoon to move the ingredients around so they look evenly spread out).

  7. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until slightly browned on top and center of casserole doesn't look runny or loose.

  8. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Cut into 12 pieces, serve and Enjoy!
