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.
