Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package vegetarian sausage links (such as Morningstar Farms®)

  • ½ cup water, or more as needed

  • 4 cups shredded sweet potatoes

  • ¼ cup butter, melted

  • 1 ½ (8 ounce) packages shredded, reduced-fat mild Cheddar-mozzarella cheese blend

  • ½ cup finely chopped onion

  • 1 cup finely sliced fresh spinach leaves

  • 1 (16 ounce) container low-fat small curd cottage cheese

  • 8 jumbo eggs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Place sausage in a large skillet and pour in about 1/4 inch of water; cook sausage over medium heat until water evaporates and sausages are evenly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Crumble cooked sausages into a bowl.

  3. Mix sweet potatoes and butter together in a bowl; evenly spread into the bottom of the prepared 9x13-inch dish.

  4. Stir Cheddar-mozzarella cheese blend, onion, spinach, cottage cheese, eggs, and crumbled sausage together in a large bowl; spoon over sweet potato layer.

  5. Bake casserole in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and eggs are set, about 1 hour. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
