Breakfast casserole can be a landmine of calories with all the cheese, sausage,etc., but it’s definitely a family favorite! I wanted to try to make this low calorie breakfast recipe that could fit into a healthy diet scheme without sacrificing the taste. Enter breakfast casserole in muffin form! I traded out the sausage for lean ham and kept most of the other ingredients intact. The key here is mainly good ole portion control- only 100 calories in each muffin! Kids will love these too, so one batch will feed everyone. I make mine on the weekend and freeze them. Just pop them in the toaster oven or the microwave then hit the road… Enjoy!
