Cheesy Cauliflower Casserole

Whether you are trying to lower your carb intake to lose weight or you are a diabetic who lives counting carbs to control blood glucose levels, cauliflower is the perfect substitution for potatoes. One cup potato has 113 calories and 26 grams carbs vs one cup cauliflower’s 25 calories and 5 grams carbs. Big difference! So, for family dinners, if I make one cheesy cauliflower casserole and one cheesy potato casserole, everyone’s happy. Some of us like the cauliflower better! Try mashed cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes too!

Main Dish

Baked Sausage & Cheese Omelet

This is quickly put together and popped in the oven for a busy evening meal.  A spin-off from a recipe at allrecipes.com.  I did not want to use a 13″x9″, too big for us tonight, so this is a scaled down version for a 9″ deep dish pie plate.  Their recipe uses ham, I substituted sausage, either way…yummy!

                       

4 slices white bread, cut into cubes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg (4 oz) precooked sausage crumbles
1 cup milk
4 eggs
2 Tbl chili sauce (or dash hot sauce) optional
2 green onions, chopped
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350°.  Spray 9″ deep dish pie plate with non-stick spray.  Place half of bread cubes on bottom of pie plate.  Sprinkle half of sausage evenly over bread.  Sprinkle half of cheese evenly.  Repeat with remaining bread cubes, sausage, and cheese.  In another bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, chili sauce, green onion, salt, and pepper.  Pour mixture in pan over other ingredients (sprinkle more cheese on top if desired).  Place pie plate on baking sheet with rim and place in oven.  Pour boiling water into baking sheet and bake for about 40 minutes or until puffy and eggs have set.
