Lower Calorie Breakfast Casserole

14 Jan

I’ve tried the full fat version of this, and then I took that recipe and turned it into the low calorie version below. I actually prefer the low calorie version, and although it’s a little more calories than I’d eat at breakfast, you could either have a smaller portion, or a lighter lunch. I, on the other hand, like to make breakfast for dinner…so this works out great for us.

Ingredients:

– 8 reduced fat pilsbury crescent rolls
– 12 oz (1 roll) reduced fat breakfast sausage- Jimmy Dean
– 1 cup 2% cheddar cheese
– 1/2 cup part skim mozzarella
– 2 cups egg beaters (1 small carton)
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1 tsp oregano

Directions:

1. Brown sausage in a skillet.

2. Roll crescent rolls out across the bottom of a 13X9 pan, sprayed with nonstick spray. (see photo)

3. Spread sausage evenly across crescent layer, and spread cheeses over sausage.

4. Mix egg beaters, salt, and oregano. Pour evenly over the top of the casserole.

5. Cover with foil, and bake.

ceramic pan: bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake 10-15 minutes, or until middle of casserole is springy, and bounces back when you touch it.

Glass pan: cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25 min. uncover and continue baking additional 15-20 min.

Note, I’ve made this several times, and the cooking time has been a little different each time. Keep an eye on it to be safe.

Editors Note: Try adding some mushroom, tomato, onion, spinach, etc for something different.
