Cheesy Brunch Casserole

Randy Mayor; Lydia DeGaris-Pursell
Yield

9 servings

Because herb-seasoned stuffing mix is the base of this casserole, you have to add only a touch of seasoning. If you'd prefer a bit of heat, substitute hot turkey Italian sausage.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound turkey Italian sausage
  • 5 cups herb-seasoned stuffing mix (such as Pepperidge Farm)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (8-ounce) cartons egg substitute

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 325°.

  2. Remove casings from sausage. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until browned, stirring to crumble. Drain. Place sausage in a large bowl; add stuffing mix, tossing to combine.

  3. Place stuffing mixture in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Drizzle stuffing mixture with broth and butter; sprinkle with cheese. Combine milk and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk; pour milk mixture over stuffing mixture.

  4. Bake at 325° for 40 minutes or until set. Let casserole stand 5 minutes before serving.
