Healthier Breakfast Casserole


Breakfast Casseroles are the total bomb!!  Easy to prepare and can feed a crowd!! 
  Since we are watching those pesky calories and trying to make healthier decisions in our food choices, we are limited with most of these breakfast casseroles.
 So I decided to take one of our favorites and change some of the ingredients so it  fits into our diet plan and it is delicious!!  
This Healthier Breakfast  Casserole is loaded with nutritious spinach, leaner Canadian Bacon, a mixture of eggs and egg whites and topped with a great cheese!
 It's also under 300 calories a serving!!
