Breakfast Casserole (C3)

Recipe Author: Becky Yokeley Love

Yield: 6 servings

1-1/2 cup homemade turkey sausage
1 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1 cup liquid egg substitute (equivalent to 4 eggs)
2 cups acidophilus milk, kefir (that's had some sweetener added to it), or plain yogurt
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced green pepper
2 slices whole wheat bread (toasted and quartered) [This makes the recipe C3]
salt / pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.

Toast and cube wheat bread if using this recipe for C3. If you are on C1, omit the bread.

Spray 8x8 baking dish with non stick spray and place bread cubes in bottom of pan and sprinkle sausage evenly over the bread, then sprinkle 1/2 cup of the cheese over the sausage (you may sprinkle veggies over cheese or combine in next step).

In a bowl, combine liquid egg, milk, onion, peppers, other veggies if wanted, salt , and pepper. Then pour mixture evenly over the pan.

Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over egg mixture.

Bake for 1 hour or until cheese is browned and a knife inserted comes out clean.

You could add mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach, really any omelet veggies you would like to add to bulk it up even more.

To make this C1 compliant, just omit the bread and add veggies to bulk it up.
