Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole

While at the Amish market I purchase some bulk Turkey Sage Sausage. I like that it is turkey, the fat content is lower but the taste is there. One of my family favorite Breakfast is the Egg Casserole. This one is a healthier version of the traditional one I like to make. By using the turkey and Nonfat Half n Half the amount of fat is reduced greatly. If you use the eggbeaters then the Cholesterol will be lowered also. The Key to this recipe is servings. Serving should be six. Serve with a fruit that should fill one up.

Turkey Sausage Breakfast Casserole

1/2 lb bulk Turkey Sage Sausage
1/2 loaf Italian loaf bread (about 2 cups, chopping into pieces)
6 eggs, beaten (or you can use egg beaters equivalent to 6 eggs)
1.5 oz of Maple syrup
1.5 oz Nonfat Half n Half.
a lightly buttered 1.5 quart bake casserole dish.

  • preheat over to 350 Fahrenheit
  • cook sausage on top of stove til cooked through and lightly browned, use a medium heat so not to brown dark. it should look light in color, but cooked through (no Pink).
  • Beat eggs well, add syrup , beat well..add half n half, beat well.
  • Put bread( cut up in small pieces about 1/2 inch cubes) in buttered casserole dish
  • Pour egg mixture over the bread
  • Sprinkle Grounded cooked sausage over the eggs.
  • Bake in prepared oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until light browned on top.
*serves 6 people or 3 very hungry ones.

  1. Thanks for this recipe; this one is a definite keeper! Its a lot simpler than the breakfast casserole recipe I have, which in addition to using full fat sausage also has a ton of cheese, melted butter, AND has to be assembled the night before AND sit out for an hour before baking.
