Low Fat Sausage Breakfast Casserole – nobody will ever know this is low-fat! Tastes AMAZING!!! Great make ahead breakfast casserole. Turkey sausage, low-fat cheese, egg beaters, egg, milk and wheat bread. Easy swaps that lower the fat but keep all the flavor. SO good!! #lowfat #breakfast #casserole
This Low-Fat Sausage Breakfast Casserole is a favorite in our house. With a few simple swaps, I drastically lowered the fat of our usual breakfast casserole and didn’t have to sacrifice any flavor. Turkey sausage, low-fat cheddar cheese, egg beaters, and whole wheat bread.
This Low-Fat Sausage Breakfast Casserole needs to be made the night before baking. I just make it before I go to bed and it is ready to bake in the morning. I’ve never frozen this, but I think it would be fine to freeze it unbaked or baked. If you freeze this unbaked, just make sure to thaw it out before baking.
This Low-Fat Sausage Breakfast Casserole is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All you need is some fruit and/or a salad and you are set. We eat this casserole at least once a month. I LOVE the swaps to lower the fat. No one will ever know this is low fat. I didn’t tell Chicken Legs and he had no idea. Give this a try ASAP! I promise it will be a hit!
