My mom substituted turkey sausage, egg beaters and low fat cheddar to reduce the fat. We have this dish every Christmas morning with croissants.

This was a very easy casserole to make. I cut out some of the cheese added an extra egg and used lean sweet italian turkey sausage instead of ground sausage. As some of the other reviews stated an hour may be a bit too much time in the oven. I took mine out after 50 minutes and it was perfect (baked in a glass dish). Read More

Was very easy to make. Used turkey sausage and egg substitute and colby/jack cheese. Maybe if I had used the mild italian sausage we would have liked it better. I made this up the night before and covered with foil and placed it in the fridge. At 6 the next morning removed the foil and put in the oven to bake. Found serving size a little large and served in 1/8ths instead of 1/6ths and added fruit on the side. Will try again and vary the ingredients. Read More

My boyfriend and I thought this was a great breakfast. Used another egg added some fresh mushrooms and half a green bell pepper. Thanks to others the 50-min cooking time was perfect! Thank you! Read More

This will be a Christmas morning tradition for our family. I followd the directions but only baked for 50 minutes (see previous reviews for this recipe). The next time I made it I used six eggs and use regular bulk sausage. My family loves it! Read More

Delicious! I used 10 eggs 3/4 cup of milk and 1 cup of cheese. (I'm not a big cheese fan). I cooked my pound of turkey sausage and 1/2 of a large diced yellow onion the night before leaving the "juices" in it. (I even shredded my potatoes the night before and though they turned a bit brown it did not affect the flavor a bit). I baked it about 45min. in a convection oven and served it to my Ladies Bible Class. All loved it and many asked for the recipe! Read More

Good basic breakfast casserole. Next time I would brown the Hash Browns a bit in a skillet before adding them to the mix as this would add more texture and taste to the dish. As other mentioned I would also add Green/Red Peppers to it as well. My changes: I used 10 eggs 3/4 Cup Milk and 1 1/2 Cups Cheese. Then baked at 350 in Convention Oven and it was done in about 35 minutes to golden brown. It easily fed 6 with some leftover. Read More

This was good but I found that 60 minutes was too long a cooking period in a glass dish and 45 minutes would have sufficed.I served it with a fresh fruit salad and croissants for brunch and it was enjoyed by everyone. Read More

I made this for dinner tonight. My whole family liked it. My 2 year old son cleaned his plate which doesn't happen all that often here lately. I added 2 extra eggs some ground mustard and salt and pepper. I also just used a regular sweet onion since I didn't have any green onions. I'll be making this one again! Thanks for sharing! Read More
