Breakfast Casserole

 Let me make one thing perfectly clear: I love breakfast. Standard protocol for me is the classics: bacon, eggs, pancakes, cereal, etc. However, do you know what’s great? When you cook something amazing and there are minimal dishes to do at the end!

 This breakfast casserole is an example of minimal dishes to clean. It’s also quick to prep and absolutely delicious. This is sort of my take on making a breakfast casserole semi healthy. Using turkey sausage instead of beef sausage and skim milk instead of whole milk are some example of my attempt to make this dish healthy-ish.
