I saw this recipe about a year ago & have been wanting to make it. Finally did it today and it was awesome! I did make a few changes - used all chicken chorizo for the meat and left out the bread (and decreased milk) to make it South Beach Phase 1 friendly. I also used all light mexican cheese blend rather than bothering with the 3 different types of cheese. It made for an AWESOME low carb breakfast casserole! I will definitely make this one again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" by 13" baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the bread cubes in a single layer in the bottom of the pan.
  3. Whisk the eggs, milk, ground mustard, salt, and black pepper together, set aside.
  4. In a skillet, brown the chorizo and ground turkey until cooked through then add the onion and bell peppers and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute a minute more and then add spinach and cook just until spinach wilts.
  5. Layer half of the meat and veggie mixture over the bread, then half of the egg mixture, then half of the cheeses.
  6. Repeat the layers once more until all ingredients have been used.
  7. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until cooked through, uncovering for the last 5-10 minutes so the cheese will brown slightly on top.
  8. Enjoy!
