This layered breakfast casserole is made with a mixture of Cheddar and reduced-fat Swiss cheese, ground turkey sausage, and a custard of lowfat milk, eggs, and egg substitute.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 pound ground turkey sausage
- 6 slices SARA LEE® Soft & Smooth™ Whole Grain White Bread, cubed
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup reduced-fat Swiss cheese
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 cup egg substitute
- 2 cups 2% milk
- 1 teaspoon ground dry mustard
Place sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, and set aside.
Layer bread cubes, sausage, and cheeses in a lightly greased 7x11 inch baking dish. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, eggs substitute, milk, salt, and mustard. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cube mixture. Cover, and refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake 50 to 60 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
