Three reasons why you need to make this recipe! 

It’s a healthy way to enjoy biscuits. 

Biscuits aren’t often considered a healthy food. They’re buttery and amazing topped with sausage gravy. With this Pillsbury Breakfast Casserole, you can enjoy buttery bites of biscuit and keep it healthy at the same time. 

You can use any leftover meat or veggies you have. 

The good thing about breakfast casseroles is they’re versatile. Don’t like ham or peppers? That’s okay, use ground turkey sausage and diced broccoli. The options are endless. 

It won’t leave you feeling heavy and sluggish.

Pillsbury Breakfast Casserole is lightened up with the use of low-fat milk and egg whites. Even the cheese is reduced fat. A serving of this is just enough to give you energy for the day, without weighing you down.

DSCN8238DSCN8249Different ways to change up this recipe: 

  • Use various chopped veggies. Even leftovers from dinner would work. Diced potatoes, diced sweet potatoes, squash, cauliflower, and peas are just a few examples of what would go well in this dish. 
  • Use various types of meat. You could use sliced turkey pepperoni, shredded turkey, shredded leftover rotisserie chicken, ground turkey, lean ground beef, or lean ground chicken. 
  • And of course, you could use various reduced fat cheese. An herbed fat-free feta would be amazing in this! 
  • To make a dairy-free version, use plain almond or soy milk in place of the low-fat milk. Soymilk will give it a boost of protein, and almond milk is basically no calories. Use Daiya shredded cheese or Follow Your Heart shredded cheese for the topping. 
  • You could drastically lower the fat content by using Egg Beaters instead of eggs and egg whites. It’s a quick version too! 

DSCN8254Tips and Tricks for Making Pillsbury Breakfast Casserole: 

  • This casserole freezes well, so you could make a few casseroles, freeze them and stock them in your freezer. To reheat from frozen, let it sit in the fridge overnight to thaw a bit, then bake in the morning for 20-30 minutes until warmed through. 
  • You can store this baked casserole in the fridge for up to 5 days, so it makes a great meal prep breakfast. Just microwave a serving for 1 minute and you have a quick, healthy breakfast you can scarf down before heading out the door. 
  • You can make this in a crockpot. Just put all ingredients in the crockpot with a liner, and bake on low for 2-3 hours – until eggs are firm.

    1. Hi Lori, I have never attempted, I have seen others try and complain the dough does not bake as well as the biscuits.. but you can always try it 🙂

  1. This is amazing!! I’ve been making it every weekend and taking it to work for breakfast. I tweaked the recipe omitting the peppers and added spinach, zucchini, and mushrooms. I also added garlic salt and Italian seasoning. And using fat free mozzarella reduces the points!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hi Kate, Thanks for sharing…Started WW 3 months ago I’m down 21 lbs. I was looking for egg casserole dishes I can make and have for several mornings. Looking forward to trying out your other recipes… Have a great day !
