Servings: 8 Prep 15 mins Total Time 3 hrs 30 mins


  • 2 links uncooked mild Italian turkey sausage, casings removed (6.75 oz.)
  • 6 egg whites
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 6 ounces shredded sharp cheddar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups cubed day-old whole-grain bread, crusts removed if desired
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 bunch asparagus, thinly sliced, about 1 1/2 cups

Make It

1. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Crumble the sausage into the skillet and cook, breaking up large pieces and stirring until the meat is cooked through, about 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool.

2. Whisk the egg whites, eggs, and milk in the insert of a 6-qt. slow cooker. Stir in 1 cup of cheddar, salt, and pepper. Stir in bread, onion, asparagus, and the browned sausage. Layer the remaining cheese over top. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Let cool uncovered in the slow cooker for about 20 minutes before serving.
