Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I followed directions basicly as written. Very easy quickly made, and only change I made was adding sautéed Jalapeno peppers, and onions about 3 times as much as recipe calls for. Maybe more calories but tasted good. Submitted by:

There is NO calorie count for the bread in the nutritional breakdown. Calorie count per serving should be higher with the bread calories. Submitted by:

15 months ago a few people commented that the bread was omitted in the nutrition calculations and it still hasn't been corrected. That will probably add in another 60 or so calories per serving. Submitted by:

I have made this a buncha different ways. My favorite is to use 2 eggs and 6 egg whites. Color is a bit pale, but the flavor is the same for fewer calories. (70 in a whole egg vs 17 in the white) Submitted by:

Fantastic! I made it with meatballs, not having sausage, and chucked extra herbs in. You could take this to a party! I made it with too little milk and too much pepper, obviously being unable to read(!), but nit was good anyway. And full of protein! Instant lunch for busy days! Submitted by:

A friend of mine made to suggestion.
1. If your low sodium breakfast sausage is used,then don't add the 1/4tsp red pepper flakes to the casserole. They said it was very spicy.
2. They suggested removing the top layer of bread entirely or drying the bread and chop it into very small crumbs.

I think this would be better is I omitted all that bread, replaced the skim milk and low fat cheese with real milk and full fat cheese and added some spinach and tomato slices :) Submitted by:
