Turkey sausage, potatoes and green chiles star in this easy, cheesy brunch casserole.
8 ounces   bulk turkey sausage
1 teaspoon   canola oil
3   medium Yukon Gold or red potatoes (1 pound), peeled, quartered and thinly sliced
5   large eggs
7   large egg whites
1 pint   low-fat cottage cheese, preferably small curd
4 ounces   sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1 1/4 cups)
2 ounces   Parmesan cheese, grated (1 cup)
2 4-ounce cans   green chiles, drained and chopped
1/3 cup  all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon   baking powder
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/2 teaspoon   freshly ground pepper
Place oven rack in top third of oven; preheat to 350°F.

Lightly oil a 9-by-13-inch baking dish or coat with cooking spray.

Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking it up with a wooden spoon; transfer to a paper towel to drain, blotting the top with a second paper towel.

Wipe the pan clean and add oil; heat over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and sauté until tender and browned, 10 to 12 minutes. (Reduce heat if necessary to prevent scorching).. Let cool slightly.

Whisk together whole eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Add cottage, Cheddar and Parmesan cheeses, chiles, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper and whisk to mix thoroughly. Add the cooked sausage, crumbling up any large pieces, and the potatoes; mix well. Pour into the prepared dish. Bake until golden on top and set in the center, 30 to 35 minutes.

always a hit!
This is a totally yummy brunch dish - it always gets great reviews from people. I make it vegetarian, without the sausage - and usually add in some asparagus and red pepper, or broccoli, etc.
