I slept in until 9:30 this morning – nice!  My blood sugar was kinda low this morning (68).  I wasn’t going to eat much because I am having brunch at my mom’s, but I had to eat something:

The old standby:  english muffin/apple/cheese

 So I kind of made a quiche/casserole to take to my moms.  I had a huge zucchini that was shredded, so i decided to substitute that for hashbrown potatoes.

First layer: 4 ounces of old french bread:

I used 6 ounces of Jimmy Dean sauasage.  I had an idea on how to get the most grease off – my salad spinner!  I rinsed the cooked sausage and then just spun it dry – it worked!

All together:

I’ll have to post the “finished” dish later this afternoon.  This whole casserole is 2000 calories, so depending on how many servings you decide you can figure out the calories.  I am making this 10 servings, so 200 calories per serving.

Breakfast Casserole:

  • 4 ounces diced french bread
  • 6 ounces breakfast sausage, cooked
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 6 ounces shredded zucchini
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Cook sausage and set aside.  In casserole dish, but the bread layer first.  Then put sausage over top of that, then the zucchini layer.  In a separate bowl, beat eggs, milk and seasonings.  Pour over bread mixture.  Finish with shredded cheese on top. 

At this point, it could be refrigerated overnight, which is what I did.  However, you could just bake it right away.  Bake at 350 for 35 to 40 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

See you later!
