Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 pound Honey Suckle Turkey Breakfast Sausage
    1 medium white onion, peeled and diced
    1 green bell pepper, cored and diced
    4 egg whites
    2 whole eggs (yolk included)
    1/3 cup 2% milk
    1 (20 ounce) sweet potatoes (about 3 medium potatoes)
    2 cups shredded mexican blend cheese
    1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
    2 stocks thinly sliced green onions

Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

Add the sausage to a medium saute pan. Cook over medium-high heat until browned, crumbling the sausage with a spoon as it cooks. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Reserve about 1 tablespoon of sausage grease in the saute pan, discarding the rest. Add the onion and green pepper* to the saute pan, and saute for 5 minutes until cooked. Add the seasoning and saute for an additional 2 minutes until fragrant. Pour the vegetable mixture into the mixing bowl with the sausage. Add finely chopped, lightly steamed sweet potatoes and 1 1/2 cups cheese to the mixing bowl with the sausage and veggies. Stir to combine.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and black pepper until combined. Then add them to the potato mixture, and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into a baking dish, and top with the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 20 minutes. Then remove the aluminum foil and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes and the top of the potatoes begin to slightly brown. Remove and let the casserole rest for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with green onions and serve!
