• 1 lb.  pork sausage (I use Swaggerty’s Natural, purchased at Kroger for about $2.50/roll)
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (I recommend 2% or “reduced fat”)
  • 2 slices of bread cubed (I use Healthy Life Whole Wheat it is only 5 net carbs/slice, purchase at many grocery stores)
  • 6 eggs (Yes-the whole egg!)
  • 1 cup milk (I used Almond Breeze unsweetened original almond milk and it was surprisingly tasty in this recipe!!)
  • 3/4-1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper



  1. Brown sausage and drain
  2. Toss sausage with cheese and bread
  3. Place in greased shallow baking dish (7×11)
  4. Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper-then pour over sausage mixture
  5. Refrigerate overnight or at least 6 hours
  6. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes

My review: This is such an easy recipe. I prepared it the night before and put it in the fridge for our company who was staying overnight with us-then just popped it in the oven while everyone was getting ready in the morning. It was a tasty and easy dish to prepare. The best part= about 1 net carb/serving and loaded with protein so it keeps you full and avoids the 10:30am carbohydrate hangover 🙂 My husband appreciated the leftovers as it was also easy for him to take in a dish and heat up at work when he was on the go.
