Don't let the name fool you: Yes, this is a vegetarian dish, but even the most carnivorous members of your brood will still love it.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 12 egg whites
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) frozen vegetarian breakfast sausage patties, thawed and crumbled
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a small nonstick skillet, saute onion and peppers in oil until tender. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites, eggs and milk. Stir in hash browns, crumbled sausage, cheese, salt, pepper and onion mixture.
  2. Transfer to a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 8 servings.
