Chef Tip:

Dietitian’s Dish Tip(s):
> Opt for lean chicken sausage that’s low in sodium instead of pork sausage to reduce saturated fat content while still enjoying savory flavor. Make your casserole ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator or freezer for a quick, convenient breakfast option on busy mornings.
