Good Egg Casserole
“Turkey sausage, potatoes and green chiles star in this easy, cheesy brunch casserole.”
8 ounces bulk turkey sausage
1 teaspoon canola oil
3 medium Yukon Gold or red potatoes, (1 pound), peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
5 large eggs
7 large egg whites
1 pint low-fat cottage cheese, preferably small curd
4 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (1¼ cups)
2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (1 cup)
2 4-ounce cans green chiles, drained and chopped
⅓ cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1Place oven rack in top third of oven; preheat to 350°F. Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or coat with cooking spray.
2Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking it up with a wooden spoon; transfer to a paper towel to drain, blotting the top with a second paper towel.
3Wipe the pan clean and add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and saute until tender and browned, 10 to 12 minutes. (Reduce heat if necessary to prevent scorching.). Let cool slightly.
4Whisk together whole eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Add cottage, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, chiles, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper and whisk to mix thoroughly. Add the cooked sausage, crumbling up any large pieces, and the potatoes; mix well. Pour into the prepared dish. Bake until golden on top and set in the center, 30 to 35 minutes.
