Mexican Sausage Strata

I wanted to make something really good for breakfast on Christmas Day but I didnt want greasy or extremely fattening. This seemed like a good choice & it took more effort than my usual quick breakfasts.

Yields 6 servings.
288 calories per serving.
Recipe from BHG via Recipe dot com emails.

5 slices whole wheat bread, cubed
6 oz turkey sausage, ground
3 eggs
1 c skim milk
1/2 c light sour cream
1/2 c monteray jack cheese, shredded
1/3 c reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 c salsa

Coat a 10 in quiche dish with cooking spray.
Spread bread evenly on the bottom of the dish.

Crumble turkey sausage into a medium skillet.
Cook until brown over medium high heat.
Drain & sprinkle over bread.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat together eggs, milk, & sour cream.
Stir in monteray jack and cheddar cheeses.
Pour egg mixture over sausage.
Cover & refrigerate for 2 hours, at least.

Preheat oven to 325.
Bake for 35 - 40 minutes.
Remove from oven & let stand for 5 - 10 minutes before cutting.

Spoon salsa on top and enjoy!

The other really great thing about this dish is that it yields pretty large portions for such a low calorie count. I always find that to be a plus!
