Expert Tips

  • We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • If you choose to make this recipe with egg product instead of whole eggs, the texture will be a bit more moist than with the eggs. But for each serving, you'll also save 40 calories and reduce the fat by 5g.
  • You can use mild or hot sausage to make this hearty dish.
  • This recipe was developed to be a make-ahead dish but you can bake it right after assembling if you like. Bake covered for 50 minutes; uncover and bake 10 to 20 minutes longer or until center is set.
