Protein-Packed, Clean-Eating, 21 Day Fix-Friendly Breakfast Casserole

My freezer meal group is an AMAZING group. We come up with some awesome recipes and the best part of this group is that our meals each month get “voted” on and we all share feedback. Since I make the menus, it allows me to tweak the recipes based on everyone’s votes and feedback to make things that (hopefully!) our families all LOVE!

Enter our family’s new favorite breakfast casserole.

So many breakfast casseroles have crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, processed hash brown potatoes, etc in them and we wanted something that, well, didn’t. This one is seriously delicious. You can make it ahead and freeze it, thawing before using it, or just quickly whip it up one morning or the night before.  It is FILLING and its one of those weekend breakfast casseroles that will keep you full to lunch and beyond! You can also sub in any vegetables you like (I add mushrooms for my mushroom-loving hubby!)

1 lb breakfast sausage
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1 ½ c finely chopped spinach
1 diced green pepper
4 eggs, beaten
16oz carton of egg whites

¼ c parmesan
