Healthified biscuit egg casserole

Review by Lyndee:

Original Ingredients:
1 can of 8 count buttermilk biscuits
1 pound of any breakfast sausage roll
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese  
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
5 eggs, beaten
2 egg whites
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Ingredients that I used to healthify:
1 can of reduced fat buttermilk biscuits
1 pound of Fareway ground turkey breakfast sausage
2 cups of colby jack shredded cheese
2 cups of egg beaters
Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 425 °F. Crumble and cook sausage in skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain.

Line bottom of greased 8 x 8 inch baking dish with biscuit dough, firmly pressing perforations to seal. Sprinkle with sausage and cheese.  Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until blended; pour over sausage and cheese.

Bake 30 minutes or until set (A knife should come out clean when inserted in the center). Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares; serve warm.  **To Avoid burning or excessive browning on top of casserole, cover with foil for half of cooking time (first 15 minutes)**

The healthified version of this was really good. I did not cover the casserole with foil while baking so mine got a little more brown than normal but I will remember to do it next time.  This was cheap and super easy to make for a warm, healthified breakfast.
