Healthy (Low Carb) Breakfast Casserole

Submitted by: KAYAWINGS

Introduction

This is an easy, make ahead breakfast that is high in protein and fresh vegetables. I make a big batch at the start of the week so the whole family can have a quick nutrious breakfast each morning.

Ingredients

    Turkey sausage (1/2 tube or 5 large patties)
    1/2 cup white onion, chopped (optional)
    1 red bell pepper, chopped (or vegetable of your choice)
    12 large eggs (omega 3, vegetarian fed, no antibotics)
    1/2 cup of water
    Seasonings of your choice (no salt)

Directions

In a large, deep skillet, brown turkey sausage, breaking it into small pieces. You can use raw in the tube or fully cooked as is your preference. Remove to paper towel leaving turkey "grease" in pan. If your sausage doesn't leave much "grease" behind, hit your pan with a little olive oil spray.


On medium heat, saute onion and peppers till the onions are starting to become translucent and the peppers are softening - approximately 5 min.


Beat eggs, water and seasonings of your choice till frothy (I usually find that it doesn't need any additional flavor but if you like it spicey or peppery, now's the time) and pour over onions & peppers. Add sausage trying to evenly distribute. Cover and let cook over low heat till eggs look done (approximately 10-15 min).


I encourage you to vary the vegetable(s) to suit your tastes. Mushrooms are very good too!


You can serve as is for a low carb meal or with a bread (not included in calorie count). My kids prefer it on tortillas with salsa.


Cut into squares and put leftovers in tupperware for breakfast for the rest of the week.
