HOW TO MAKE THIS LOW POINT BREAKFAST CASSEROLE?

For this casserole you can use shredded potatoes if you are following the WW purple plan-since they are zero smart points or you can use any brand of frozen hash browns. Just keep in mind the point values can vary depending on the brand of hash browns that are used. The brand I like to use is called TJ Farms frozen shredded hash browns.

For this casserole I use the Jimmy Dean turkey sausage crumbles. They are 2 Smartpoints per 1/2 cup or 5 Smartpoints for 1 cup.

Add 1 can of fat free evaporated milk and 4 eggs

I use Trader Joe’s lite shredded 3 cheese blend. It’s low in points and melts well.

Pour egg mixture over potatoes in ( 9 x 13)baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 40 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
