1 pound vegetarian sausage
(We used Tofurky Original Sausage Italian.)
1 can (15 ounces) low sodium black beans, drained
1 cup fat free mozzarella cheese, shredded
8 large egg whites
2 large whole eggs
1/2 cup fat free milk
1/4 tsp. salt

This is a hearty casserole you can make when serving breakfast for a large group. Individual servings can be stored in the refrigerator if covered and sealed for up to three days. Just reheat each dish in the microwave for approximately 1.5 to 2 minutes on high.
This recipe is higher in salt. If you're on a reduced sodium diet you should consider another option.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then use buttery spray and lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
2. Take the biscuits out and cut them in half. Then line the bottom of the baking dish with the biscuits.
3. Chop the vegetarian sausage up. Then heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, lightly coat it with buttery cooking spray. Cook and stir the sausage until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Then spread that sausage, the black beans and the cup of fat free mozzarella cheese over the biscuit layer.
4. Get a large mixing bowl and whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Once combined, pour it over the cheese and sausage.
5. Heat the large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat it with buttery cooking spray. Pour the 2 cups of fat free milk in the sauce pan and whisk in the gravy mix. Bring to a boil while stirring, then reduce heat and simmer until the gravy thickens, about 1 to 2 minutes.
6. Pour the gravy over the egg layer.
7. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.
8. Bake in the oven until egg is fluffy and cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes. When finished, take out of the oven and let sit for approximately 2 minutes, before dividing it into 10 servings.
