Higher Protein Sausage & Egg Hashbrown Casserole

Oct 27, 2021

Sausage & Egg Hashbrown Casserole. Dinner 🥘 last night & lunch today! 

I wanted to make an egg casserole that was higher in protein while doing the Tighter Together Challenge. My husband and I are both doing a slight cut right now. I set his macros and used Madeline's macros that she sent for the challenge. However, while I didn't change the protein, I upped my carbs and fats by 100 calories. Sometimes it's hard to get in all of your daily protein to protect those muscles in a deficit! Therefore I came up with a higher protein recipe for my sausage and egg hash brown casserole.

I added Vital Farms whole eggs plus whites to up the protein. Only 1 14 ounce package of Simple Truth pork sausage, and one whole package of refrigerated hashbrowns. It also includes onions, roasted red peppers, spinach & seasonings. Layered everything into a baking dish and baked until the center was set!
