Sausage and Hash Brown Breakfast Casserole

A slice of yumminess
I love breakfast for dinner. This is an easy dish that tastes great. I lightened this traditionally fat and calorie laden dish by using egg substitute, fat free half and half, and low fat milk. Turkey sausage will work in this dish as well. Yes- it is still good. It was so good that we ate all of it. There were no leftovers.

1 lb (.45 kg) of Sausage
1 Tbsp of Canola or Vegetable Oil
20 oz (570  g) of Grated Potatoes
1 Cup (240 ml) of Egg Substitute (4 Eggs)
1 Cup (240 ml) of Fat Free Half N Half
1 Cup (240 ml) of Low Fat Milk
2 Cups (240 g) of Grated Cheese (Your choice)
Salt and Pepper, To Taste
Several Dashes of Cayenne or Southwest Seasoning (Optional)

Preheat oven to 350F/176C/Gas Mark 4. Spray a 9x9 inches (3.5x3.5 cm) baking pan with cooking spray. In a large skillet cook the sausage until no longer pink. Dump cooked sausage into the bottom of the baking pan.
I love the smell of frying sausage

Pour about a tablespoon of oil in a skillet and dump in the grated potatoes. Lightly cook the grated potatoes in the skillet and dump over the sausage.
Lightly frying the potatoes
Whisk the eggs, milk, and half and half until combined and pour over the top of the grated potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. Sprinkle with seasonings.
Ready for the oven.
Place uncovered in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.


The bottom line: will I make this again? Yes and I will continue to use my lower in fat and calorie substitutes.
