I tried this recipe for the first time on Christmas Eve and fell in love! It was such an easy alternative to making biscuits, sausage gravy, and eggs separately and dirtying a bunch of pots and pans. The original recipe was not macro-friendly at all but I knew I could create one that was! So after Christmas I gave it a go and yummy! It’s not the most macro-friendly breakfast option, however it’s one of those comfort food dishes that feels so naughty it can’t be nice. I promise it is! The original recipe has use dump the gravy mixture on the whole casserole but I prefer to make it on the side and top it on the individual servings. That way the portion of the casserole I save in the fridge doesn’t get all soggy. Happy flexible dieting!
