Sweet Potato & Egg Casserole – makes 18 servings.

Instead of using starchy white potatoes or bread in your usual breakfast casserole, try sweet potato!

Just ½ cup of sweet potatoes delivers more beta carotene (antioxidant) than 12 cups of broccoli.  Sweet potatoes also supply vitamin E (also an antioxidant) and potassium! They deliver fiber, even more with the peel on.

 

8 oz. ground turkey sausage, cooked and fat drained

1 sweet potato, grated

1 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded

¼ onion, finely diced

1 cup grape tomatoes, diced

2 tsp. oregano

6 eggs

6 egg whites

¾ cup cottage cheese

10 oz. frozen spinach, thawed with the extra water squeezed out

1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, finely shredded

 

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spread grated sweet potato along the bottom of a glass 9” x 13” casserole dish.
  3. Spread ground turkey sausage on top of sweet potato.
  4. Next spread onion, red pepper and tomato on top of the sausage.
  5. Sprinkle cheddar cheese evenly over the vegetables.
  6. In a separate bowl, beat eggs and egg whites. Add spinach and cottage cheese to egg mixture and mix together.  Pour mixture evenly over the cheese.
  7. Top with mozzarella cheese.
  8. Bake in oven for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
