Breakfast is by far my favorite meal… and I will eat it any time of the day, because breakfast for dinner, or lunch or night time snack is fine by me 🙂 I wanted to make a simple casserole dish that would be good for meal prep for the week and this turkey hash brown casserole sure did the trick. Full of all my favorite breakfast foods and serves up a nice hearty portion for just 5 smart points on WW freestyle. If you want to see the frozen hash browns I use feel free to see my product review here so you can compare nutritional info for them. This dish is so simple yet so tasty!

  1. Could I do this with egg whites? I am not a huge fan of the taste of scrambled eggs… it could I do a half and half mixture- 5 eggs and 5 egg whites?

    • Drizzle Reply

      Yes I think that will work out, remember 1 egg is equivalent to about 2 egg whites though

  2. Can I do this without eggs period? Will it still hold? And how many points? Thanks

    • Drizzle Reply

      Hi, no I don’t think it will hold, it needs the eggs to bake into the dish .. also without eggs would not change the points since eggs are a zero food

  3. Made this last night and refrigerated until I baked it this morning, prettt decent! I usually prefer bread in my breakfast casserole, but this is good too because it’s full of meat and potato, doesn’t leave me feeling hungry for anything else and I didn’t even eat my entire portion (about 3 bites shy). I made a few changes, I only had Jennie o lean gr turkey so I used about 1/3 lb of that, the bacon, and used 6 slices of Canadian bacon (only 2 pts for 6 slices) so it was a nice way for me to save some of those pts from using higher fat turkey. I also used the green onions, it was a little strong flavor w 3 so next time I would only use about half. Thanks for the great recipe! I ended up cutting mine into 8 portions and it works out to 6 pts each serving.

      Hi Samantha, so glad you enjoyed it, thanks for sharing your tips 🙂 I appreciate it

  4. I love this recipe! Made it last week and did a sweet potato, spinach and asparagus version this week.

    I am curious- if you freeze it, how would you recommend heating it back up?

    Thank you for sharing and all of your recipes!

      Hi Caitlin, so glad you enjoyed it and thanks for sharing your yummy creation 🙂
      You can reheat in the oven or even air fryer

    • Hi Caitlin,

      I always freeze my DMS leftovers and I’m lazy so I just pop it in the microwave; totally fine and just as delicious!

  5. Can sausage be substituted for the ground turkey? Or is that too much fat? I’m new (can you tell?)

      Hi Cindy, well you could use it but yes it will add a lot of points, the ground turkey is zero points (on blue & purple)
