Another Monday is here friends, how was your weekend? We had some gorgeous weather here in Oklahoma, we made sure to enjoy it.
I've talked about how we're big meal planners & food prep people in our house, we just have to in order to stay on track throughout our busy week. Some weeks I will make ahead a breakfast for the week- casserole, quinoa egg muffins, blueberry muffins, etc. Recently I've been throwing together this breakfast casserole that really could not be any easier. It's tasty, easy, filling and low carb/low fat/high protein. So for us, a total win.
1 cup turkey sausage crumbles
3 cups frozen hash browns
1/4 cup fat free cheddar cheese
1/4 cup fat free mozzarella cheese
16 oz carton egg whites
Seasonings to taste
Preheat oven to 350, spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray. Mix the hash browns & sausage together in the pan. Pour the egg whites on top and add any seasonings you'd like, stir. Add your cheeses on top. Bake uncovered for 1 hour.
See, honestly the easiest thing ever! I like a little salsa on top of mine too. We cut this into 4 pieces, you could divide it however you'd like, we're into big servings around here. An entire 1/4 of the pan only has 167 calories, 2.5g fat, 11g carbs & 21g protein.
You can customize this several different ways- add real eggs for more fats, use regular cheese for more fat, use any kind of sausage, add veggies. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
Are you a breakfast casserole fan?
