Low-Carb Breakfast Casserole with Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Cheese!
Years ago (when I was in the middle of house renovations!) I created this tasty Breakfast Casserole with Italian Sausage. And at the time I was so proud that I had been frugal and made up a new breakfast casserole recipe out of a couple of Italian Sausages I found in the fridge. Now fast forward 9 years and a new house later, and I’m still making this delicious breakfast casserole with Italian Sausage!
Now I make a bigger version and use the whole package of Italian sausage links, and recently I noticed that the old photos weren’t really showing this recipe off to it’s full glory. So last week I made it again and took new photos, and I just ate the last bit warmed up for breakfast as I was updating this post!
And YUM! I’m so glad I had the slightly crazy idea of putting turkey Italian sausage into a breakfast casserole. This Breakfast Casserole with Italian Sausage has fewer eggs than many of my low-carb breakfast casseroles, letting the flavors of the Italian sausage and mushrooms really shine.
I use Jenni-O Turkey Italian Sausage, my favorite sausage for low-carb recipes with Italian sausage, and if you use that and use low-fat cheese this low-carb dish can also be South Beach Diet friendly. And if you’d like to make a version that’s Keto, just use pork Italian Sausage and full-fat cheese. This will be delicious either way you make it, and if you’re an Italian sausage fan like I am, it just might become one of those breakfasts you make over and over!
How to Make Breakfast Casserole with Italian Sausage:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe, including nutritional information.)
- Preheat oven to 375F/190C and spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray or olive oil.
- Brown the Italian sausage of your choice and add it to the casserole dish.
- Then brown the mushrooms and layer them over the sausage in the casserole dish.
- Sprinkle half the grated cheese and the green onions over the sausage-mushroom mixture. (Bad blogger; I didn’t get a photo of that!)
- Rinse the cottage cheese in a fine-mesh colander and let it drain well.
- Beat eggs. Add Spike Seasoning (affiliate link), cottage cheese, and Parmesan cheese to the eggs and pour it over the sausage-mushrooms-cheese mixture;.
- Then take a fork and gently stir so all ingredients are well-combined.
- Season with a little fresh-ground black pepper and sprinkle the other cup of grated cheese over the top.
- Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the middle is completely set and the top is starting to lightly brown.
- Serve the Low-Carb Breakfast Casserole with Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Cheese hot.
This is good with a little sour cream on top if you’re a sour cream fan. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge and quickly reheated in the microwave.
