Light Biscuits & Gravy Casserole

My Mom loves biscuits and gravy. Up until a few years ago it usually was something she’d get while out to breakfast. However, over the last few years I’ve been making it at home. I like making it as I can usually give it a little be of a lighter/healthier take! This casserole is exactly that. This recipe is definitely different than my other homemade biscuits and gravy recipe. I like this recipe because the flavors scream biscuits and gravy but the fat, not so much!

Give this recipe a try and please comment how you like it!

Cheers!

Light Biscuits & Gravy Casserole

Ingredients:
6 oz pork sausage, cooked and drained
1 1/2 cups egg beaters
3/4 cup reduced fat cheese
1 country sausage packet (I use McCormick, try and look for a reduced sodium if possible)
4 grands biscuits, cut into bite size pieces

Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Prepare the gravy with water per package, set aside. Evenly spread the biscuits on the bottom of the pan. Add the egg beaters to the pan and top with the gravy. Next sprinkle the sausage over the top and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with cheese and bake for 10 more minutes. Take out the casserole and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. I cut a piece and add some of the sauce from the casserole right on top! Enjoy!

Notes: You can use turkey sausage for even healthier take, personally I don’t like the flavor as much. Sometimes you can even find reduce fat biscuits, those would work great as well.

Air Fryer French Toast Sticks

I’m obsessed with my new air fryer! I’ve had it since before the holidays and I honestly can’t get enough. I’ve been trying out so many delicious recipes. This recipe was one that surprised me! French toast sticks! Super simple, yet the flavors were awesome. Personally, I feel like it’s much easier than in a pan, and let’s be honest that’s pretty easy too.

Try this recipe if you want a quick breakfast. Keep in mind, every air fryer is different. The cook time and temperatures will vary.

Air Fryer French Toast Sticks

Ingredients:
8 slices of white bread or Texas toast
4 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1 t vanilla extract
cinnamon, sprinkle (optional)

To serve:
favorite syrup
powdered sugar

Directions: In a bowl add in the milk, eggs and vanilla and whisk well together. Cut the slices of bread into thirds. Spray the air fryer rack or basket with cooking spray. Dip each stick into the egg mixture quickly on both sides. Remove from the egg mixture and place directly on the rack or in the basket. Complete with all break sticks. Sprinkle each stick on both sides with cinnamon, if desired. Preheat the air fryer. Add the rack or basket into the air fryer and cook at 350° for about 7-8 minutes flipping half way through. Cook until crispy. Remove from air fryer and sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with syrup.

Notes: You can add regular sugar to the bread as well as the cinnamon. Personally I use the cinnamon and then powdered sugar. You can do whatever you like. I like mine on the crispier side as they are better to dip.
