A lower fat version of our traditional Christmas Breakfast. A lower fat version of our traditional Christmas Breakfast.
Number of Servings: 6


    1 pound frozen Shredded Potatoes, thawed
    4 oz Turkey Sausage, cooked & crumbled
    1 cup sliced mushrooms
    1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
    1 cup Egg Beaters Egg Substitute
    1/8 tsp Salt, or to taste
    1/8 tsp Black Pepper, or to taste
    1/8 cup red pepper, finely chopped
    2 Tbsp onions, finely chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray. Spread potatoes around bottom and press up the sides. Place in oven and cook for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix egg substitute, salt, and pepper together.

Remove potatoes from oven and press potatoes down firmly with a spoon so they are spread out and cover the bottom and sides of the pan. Sprinkle the sausage, red pepper, and cheese in the bottom of the pan. Pour the egg mixture over it.

Return pan to oven and cook until potatoes are crisp and golden and the egg mixture is set, about 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit about 5 minutes before serving.

You can further reduce the fat & calories by using low-fat cheddar cheese. If I did that my Dad wouldn't eat it.

    Taste just as good as the high fat version I used to make. From now on, this is my go to breakfast! I used the southwest seasoned hash browns because they already had peppers and onions in them. I omitted the salt and pepper because of the seasoned potatoes. I was impressed. - 3/7/08

    I substituted Gimme Lean Breakfast "Sausage"- a vegetarian alternative for the sausage. I also used lowfat (2%) cheddar cheese. I would make this again. I served it for dinner, but then again, I often like "breakfast for dinner." - 1/25/08

    This was very good. I also used turkey kielbasa instead, and I added some fresh ground red pepper flakes. I saute the veggies in a nonstick skillet and added garlic powder first. then I divided the cheddar into thirds and layered it in between the kielbasa mixture and egg. Delish! - 1/22/08

    Easy to make and easy to eat up! I used broccoli instead of peppers because my mom can't eat the peppers.Still came out great. - 12/22/08
