    • Instead of sausage, try using bacon, ham or even pepperoni!
    • In place of whole eggs, use egg whites for a lower fat, lower calories option.

    Add vegetables

    • Green onions are added for a hint of flavor and pop of color, but there are others you can add or use in place.
    • Try added low moisture content veggies like broccoli, asparagus or spinach. Sauté these briefly until tender before adding to the casserole.

    1. Just tried this recipe and I must say it is very delicious. Very easy and quick to make, even my kids liked it.
      Thank you.

    2. I made this recipe this morning and my family loved it. No more Jimmy Dean for them LOL!!!!!!!. Later today, we are going to try the Avocado pudding. I hope that’s a hit as well. Thank you for taking the time to provide these recipes for free.

    3. OMG this is a forgiving recipe. I only had 1/2 a lb of sausage, so I cooked and added 12oz of crispy bacon, added 2 extra eggs and about an extra cup of cheese. This was so easy and quick to make, this literally disappeared in 20 min.

      Thank you!

    4. Hi 😊 I don’t have heavy cream right now, do you think cream cheese could work in place of it?? Thank you!!

      1. You could try that but you would probably need to add a little bit more liquid too. So maybe try 4 oz of cream cheese and 1/3 cup of nut milk, water or 2 extra eggs

    5. I must literally follow your instructions to the tee….
      Cuz I didn’t drain the grease from the sausage and boy was it greasy. (Doc says I have high cholesterol.)
      Had to cook 34 minutes, and still couldn’t set the center.
      Next batch, I will not only drain, but lightly wash sausage before adding to mixture.
      Can’t wait til next week..Laughing Out Loud
      Thanx Annie, Dan and Mac,(service dog)

    6. I didn’t have any sausage, so dad, kind of a Denver omelette style – ham, onions, green bell, peppers, cheddar cheese, and a few strips of bacon. It was delicious And so filling! I made it as a meal prep lunch option and reheated well. Picking up some sausage today so I can make it per the recipe. This is definitely going to stay on the rotation.
