Wicked Light Sausage and Egg Bake

It was a success!! The egg bake came out AMAZING yesterday, if I do say so myself. And 1/4 of the 8x8 casserole dish is only 5pts... it doesn't get much better than that :)

Recipe:
1 3oz link turkey sausage
1 tbsp oil
3 cloves garlic
1 medium red pepper
1 cup mushrooms
3/4 cup chopped tomatoes
2 frozen hash browns - crumbled
3 wedges laughing cow cheese
2 cups liquid egg whites (approx 8 egg whites)
1/2 cup 1% milk
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Put the oil in the hot pan over med-high heat. Add the garlic, red pepper and sausage. Break or chop up the sausage as much as possible. Once the sausage is browning and the pepper is softening, add the mushrooms and then the tomato. When these are looking tender, add the hash browns and then chop the cheese wedges. Turn off the heat. Mix the milk, basil, eggs, salt and pepper in a bowl and add to heated mixture. Stir until mixed. Pour into a greased 8x8" casserole dish.

In 350 degree oven, cook covered for 40-45 mins. Remove the cover and cook for another 20 mins. Make sure that it is firm when you remove it. Replace the cover and let stand 5-10 mins to completely set. ENJOY!! I added some fresh fruit to make it even better. Hope you like it.
