Helpful hints

  • Nancy uses Jimmy Dean® brand reduced-fat sausage.
  • Try one of the homemade sausage recipes for a lower sodium option.
  • Let casserole set for 10 minutes before cutting into portions.
  • Many other breakfast casserole recipes contain cheese, which adds extra sodium, potassium and phosphorus.
