Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes

Yield: 12 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. breakfast sausage or turkey sausage
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3 cups frozen shredded potato hash browns thawed
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • 24 oz. low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 small orange or red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Brown sausage in a large skillet, breaking up with a wooden spoon. Drain and set aside.

  3. Place butter in the prepared baking dish. Place in the oven for 5 minutes or until melted. Remove dish from oven, and toss melted butter with shredded hash browns, pressing hash browns into the bottom of the pan to form a potato crust.

  4. In a large bowl, beat eggs with salt and pepper. Stir in cottage cheese, onions, orange peppers, sausage and 1 cup of the shredded cheese. Pour evenly over potato crust. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  5. Bake 45-60 minutes or until cheese is melted, and a toothpick inserted in the center of the casserole comes out clean.
