This is a Lo Cal version of a great Cheesy Brunch Casserole which was a remake Cooking Light did side by side to the original. This version knocks down the caloric intake to somewhere in the low 300's, I believe. I love eating lo cal and am waiting to have 7 other people over for breakfast or brunch to try it out.
