Sausage Breakfast Casserole


This recipe is a family favorite...it's also as healthy as something so cheesy and sausage-y can be. For anyone following Weight Watchers, it's 3 points per serving.

Sausage Breakfast Casserole

3 cups (1-in. cubed) French Bread
Cooking Spray
1/2 lb. bulk turkey sausage (such as Louis Rich)
1/4 cup chopped green onions (about 4 green onions)
3/4 cup (3-oz) shredded reduced-fat sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup fat-free milk
1 cup egg substitute
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Arrange bread cubes in an 11x7x1 1/2-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place skillet over med-high heat until hot. Add sausage and green onions; cook until sausage is browned, stirring until it crumbles. Drain, if necessary.

Layer sausage mixture and cheese over bread cubes.

Combine milk and remaining 4 ingredients; pour over bread mixture, bread and cheese. Press down on bread mixture with a spatula to cover totally with milk mixture. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight.

Bake casserole, uncovered, at 350ºF. for 30 min. or until set and lightly browned. Let stand 5 min. before serving.

Yields: 6 servings
