What’s Cookin? Sunday Brunch: Cheesy Brunch Casserole

There is breakfast, and of course; breakfast for dinner. But on Sunday’s, there is breakfast for lunch, or what the ‘cool kids’ call “brunch”.

Wikipedia: A meal is not usually considered brunch if it is started before 10:30 am; such meals would still be considered breakfast. Typically brunch is had between 10:30 am and 2 pm, close to lunch time but still before. Brunch is usually eaten in the late morning.

Oh, and enjoy!

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

Preparation:

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