This tasty breakfast casserole is loaded with flavor, but uses better-for-you ingredients like turkey sausage, bell peppers and spinach. And despite the addition of melty Italian cheeses and a buttery crescent crust, this satisfying egg bake still clocks in at fewer than 400 calories per serving—so you can have your brunch party and feel good about it, too.

Expert Tips

  • You can find precooked turkey sausage breakfast patties near the bacon and deli meats in the refrigerated meat section of the grocery store.
  • Shredded Cheddar or mozzarella cheese may be used in place of Italian cheese blend in this recipe.
  • To add subtle heat, stir 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes into egg mixture.
  • Adding a teaspoon or two of chopped garlic at the end of the vegetable sauté step helps to add more flavor to the mixture without adding calories.
