Ingredients

  • tablespoons Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 12 ounces Italian turkey sausage (casings removed)
  • 2 tablespoons onion (chopped)
  • ¼ cup green pepper (diced)
  • ¼ cup red pepper (diced)
  • 1 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese (shredded)
  • 4 large eggs or 1 cup egg substitute (lightly beaten)
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic pepper or freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Spray a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the bread crumbs into the bottom of the pie plate.
  • In a large skillet, cook the crumbled turkey sausage and onions over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, for about 7 minutes. Once the meat is no longer pink and the onions are translucent, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
  • Add the sausage and onions to the pie plate, distributing evenly.
  • Sprinkle the pie plate with the green pepper, red pepper, and cheese.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and pepper, then pour into the pie plate.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the center is set and the top is beginning to brown in spots.
  • Remove from the oven and set the pie plate on a wire rack. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.
