High Protein Breakfast Casserole


Breakfast Casserole 4

I wake up early for work to make an hour commute everyday.  I need a breakfast that is quick but will also keep me full for hours.  I make this high protein breakfast casserole on Sunday nights and heat it up each morning.  Takes about 30 minutes to bake on Sunday but only 45 seconds to heat up each morning. 
I cut the casserole into 5 servings, one for each day of the week.  Each serving is 200 calories and 19 grams of protein!!  This is an excellent way to eat a hot, healthy breakfast on the go and skip the drive-thru window.

Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup hash browns
  • 6 ounces spicy turkey sausage
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup Chipotle cheddar cheese

Tips:  The frozen hash browns can often be really wet.  I like to squeeze out the excess water through a paper towel.

Breakfast Casserole 3

Tips:  I would normally use skim milk but Brent picked out the milk this week.  Use a lower fat version to decrease the calories, or keep the higher fat option to keep you full longer!

Bake the casserole in a 350 degree oven for approximately 30 minutes or until firm.

This is also a great way to feed a crowd for brunch or breakfast without being in the kitchen for hours.  Whip the casserole up ahead of time and pop in the oven in the morning.
