I love eggs for breakfast, especially things like egg muffins and breakfast casseroles that keep in the fridge and are easy to pop into the microwave for a quick breakfast.  Technically this Sausage, Mushrooms, and Feta Baked with Eggs is probably a breakfast casserole, but I didn’t call it that because my breakfast casseroles are mostly eggs, baked with other ingredients mixed in.

This dish is browned turkey breakfast sausage, sauteed mushrooms, and Feta cheese baked with just a little egg to hold it together, so that the emphasis is on the other ingredients and not so much on the eggs. Before I discovered Jimmy Dean’s Low-Fat and Pre-Cooked Turkey Breakfast Sausage, I used to make this with a higher-fat sausage that I would simmer in water for a few minutes before browning to remove some of the fat.  I’m glad I can skip that step now, but if you can’t find a low-fat type of sausage it’s still a good trick.

And oh my goodness, is this ever a delicious breakfast option! Of course it’s no secret that I’m nuts for Feta cheese, and the combination of the Feta and the seasoned turkey breakfast sausage was perfect in this recipe. This is one of my top ten low-carb breakfasts to make on the weekend and eat all week long; hope you enjoy!

I cut the sausages in half and browned them for a few minutes; then put sausage in the casserole dish (that you have sprayed with non-stick spray. Add a little more olive oil to the pan and saute the mushrooms until they’ve released their liquid and are mostly cooked. layer mushrooms, Feta, and green onions over the sausage.

Beat the eggs with the milk or half and half and pour over, then season with Spike Seasoning or another all-purpose seasoning blend that’s good with eggs. I like to take a fork and stir slightly so everything is well-distributed in the eggs. Bake at 375F/190C until the eggs are set and starting to brown slightly on top, 30-40 minutes, depending on the dish and your oven.

Serve hot, garnished with more green onion if desired. This is good with a little sour cream on top if you’re a sour cream fan like I am.

Sausage, Mushrooms, and Feta Baked with Eggs
(Makes 6 generous servings or 8 small servings, recipe created by Kalyn.)

Ingredients:
12-14 oz (12-14 links) turkey breakfast sausage
16 oz. sliced mushrooms (I buy pre-sliced mushrooms for this.)
1-2 tsp. olive oil, depending on your pan
1/2 – 3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, about 4 oz.
8 eggs, well beaten
2 T half and half or milk (use milk for South Beach Diet)
1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (Use any all-purpose seasoning blend that’s good with eggs if you don’t have Spike.)
fresh-ground black pepper to taste
Sliced green onions (optional, but good)

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray 9″ X 11″ casserole dish with nonstick spray.

(If you don’t find low-fat turkey sausage, you can put the sausage in pan with small amount of water and simmer about 10 minutes to cook out some of the fat. Remove sausage, and drain well.)

Heat a little olive oil in a non-stick pan. Cut each piece of sausage in half or thirds, then brown sausage lightly in frying pan. Put sausage into casserole dish, rinse the frying pan if you need to, then add a little more olive oil if needed and saute mushrooms until they’re softened and starting to brown.

Put sauteed mushrooms over the sausage, then crumbled feta cheese and green onions.  Beat eggs with the milk or half and half; then pour eggs over the other ingredients, then season with Spike Seasoning (and black pepper if desired.) I like to take a fork and stir slightly so all ingredients are evenly distributed throughout the dish.

Bake 30-40 minutes, until eggs are well set and barely starting to brown on top.  (I baked the one in these photos for about 36 minutes.)  Serve hot.

This will keep in the fridge for at least a week and can be quickly reheated in a microwave. (Don’t reheat for too long or the eggs will get rubbery.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This recipe would be a good breakfast for most low-carb or low-glycemic eating plans and all phases of the South Beach Diet. Use the lowest fat turkey sausage you can find if you’re making this for South Beach, or simmer in water to remove some of the fat. Other low-carb diets may not care about the fat, but if you use pork sausage, I’d drain it well.

  1. Yummy photo Kaylyn! I really appreciate your low-carb philosophy and come to your site often for encouragement and education – to say nothing of the wonderful recipes. I’ve recently been reading up on high fructose corn syrup, which, it seems, is in EVERYTHING, and is very high on the glycemic index. Then looked on the back of my Land O’Lakes Fat Free 1/2 & 1/2 carton and there it was. I use FF 1/2 & 1/2 to lower my fat intake but after reading how the corn syrup acts in one’s body, I may have to give it up. Any comments?

  2. Christine, I use regular half and half for the most part. I did used to buy the fat free, but quit buying it for exactly that reason. I mainly use it in coffee, so I’m not that worried about the fat. I would rather have fat than the HFCS for sure.

  3. Ohhh this made my mouth water, it looks so good! I bet the feta cheese gives it a really nice lil zing.

  4. I love feta with eggs! Another yummy recipe, Kalyn!

    PS: HFCS = evil! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Love the feta–nice idea. Interesting about the ff half & half–have to check on that. Very delicious photo.

  6. Kalyn–Your photos are always so great!

  7. yeah, i could definitely go for that. that looks really good!

  8. Great recipe. Thank you. I love being able to make something that will cover us for a few days. I just don’t have time to make an egg breakfast every morning otherwise. So, this is perfect.

    I added some bell pepper to this one. And, I made the sausage with bulk sausage, half spicy and half turkey. Turned out perfect. I appreciate your site!

  9. Anonymous sounds good with bell pepper added. Glad you liked it.

  10. Kalyn, I just discovered your site this week and I love it! Today I made this egg dish and loved it. I am so excited that I can make this on the weekend and freeze the rest to eat during the week. Thank you for such great recipes.

  11. I just found your website Kalyn and I can't wait to try out some of your recipes! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your knowledge with us!

  12. It's fun to revisit both recipes and photos. You've come a long way in your photography, and the recipe still looks as delicious as ever.

  13. This looks so good! I eat feta with my scrambled eggs all the time so this looks great!

  14. Kalyn,
    I just loved this recipe. I have done similar ones (with asparugus and ricota) and I find this way of baking the eggs just marvellous.

    I'm defenitly going to try this one ๐Ÿ™‚

    Big kiss

  15. This is my kind of food and it looks delicious – especially like the use of feta.

  16. This looks delicious. Perfect for serving a crowd or portioning out for the freezer! You had me at feta…..

  17. Looks delicious and love the new look of your blog! And yay for the url!!

  18. Thanks everyone for the nice feedback on this recipe. I'm having fun revisiting these old recipes and adding better photos.

  19. Yum Yum! Mushrooms for breakfast! I like how you used Turkey Sausage… I'm a big fan!
    – Brittany

  20. Anything with sausage and and feta is a hit here. I have never used 'fat free' or even low fat anything because of all the mystery ingredients they have to add to make it palatable… I do use yogurt in place of cream in cooking and I love it with eggs. Half and Half is not an option here – although I suppose I could make my own…. Nah, yogurt's easier and I always have it.

  21. Breakfast casseroles are the BEST! I love the idea of adding feta. Everything is better with feta!

  22. No questions about it, mushrooms, Feta, and sausage are three of my favorite ingredients!

  23. So funny! I saw a recipe for an egg casserole at The Perfect Panty and thought, That looks like Kalyn! Sure enough — the recipe was inspired by you, the queen of egg casseroles!

  24. Alanna, thanks! And I admit I do love my egg casseroles!

  25. I made a similar one for breakfast all week long, and it's truly amazing. Shockingly, doesn't get old! Ate my last piece this morning – time to break out the feta again.

    Speaking of feta, I am at times so-so on this ingredient because of its incredible tanginess. In this dish, it really seems to mellow and tastes creamy and delicious. Big fan of baked eggs and feta. Mmmmm.

  26. Feat and egg coelette is one of very favorites. You ahve taken it to a whole other delicious level!

  27. Marie, I do agree with you about how the baking mellows the feta. Love it!

    Thanks Maris!

  28. RE: FF Half & Half– I use the low-fat (LOL) Half & Half– the fat free is too sweet for me–I don't sweeten my coffee.

    I love all your egg dishes–breakfast is my fav–even if I eat it for lunch or dinner ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. I don't think I've seen low-fat half and half but I'll definitely look for it. Glad you're enjoying the egg dishes!

  30. LOL is Land of Lakes – it has low-fat H & H.

  31. Oh, duh. Thanks for clarifying that, will look for Land o' Lakes brand.

  32. This looks sooo.. good. I'd love to have a serving. The feta and egg combo sounds amazing. I hope you have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  33. Thanks Mary. It's been great for breakfast the last few days.

  34. I love egg bakes. When I was working mega overtime, egg bakes were a Sunday staple; then providing breakfast, lunch or dinners for a few more days. Life saving.

    I especially like feta in them. Even more than cheddar. The feta gives an egg bake a real flaovr pop.

    As always- Thanks for the recipe Kalyn. Looks yummy.

  35. CJ I do share your fondness for Feta in dishes like this; glad you like it.

  36. Love everything about this. Reminds me of Sundays when I get the skillet and put in a bit of this and that. Good combo of flavors in yours. We don't usually end up with mushrooms at breakfast, but I know we'd enjoy them.

  37. Oh, I love a good frittata (I usually bake mine in the oven after the egg is added too in order to ensure even cooking) ๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Thanks Kellypea and Ellie! I think this is one of my favorite breakfast combinations.

  39. I made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome! Thanks so much Yum!

  40. Jan, so glad you liked it!

  41. I made a variation of this today – I cut back on the number of sausages and added a handful of curly kale instead – I think you would have been proud!

  42. I do love the sound of this with kale!

  43. I've been back on Phase I for a couple of months now and was getting pretty sick of my usual egg-based breakfasts. I'm a picky eater so my choice are limited. Not a huge fan of mushrooms (cut them in 1/2) or Feta but this is yummily! Thanks.

  44. So glad you're enjoying it!

  45. I love egg casseroles with sausage. It seems you like feta ALOT! Would it still work using another type of cheese like cheddar or swiss? Sorry but Feta is just too salty for me.

  46. I don't see where the milk or half and half is actually added into the recipe. I am assuming it gets mixed in with the eggs. I'm making this right now, so hopefully it turns out as delicious as it sounds!
