My favorite breakfast these days is scrambled eggs with sauteed vegetables.  I love getting in tons of vegetables to start my day.  I decided to try something a little different and make a breakfast casserole instead.  I figured I could add some sausage and cheese to the mix for a little added nutritional punch, too.

I borrowed this recipe from the back of a bag of KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese and made a few adjustments.  I love the new KRAFT Natural Shredded Cheese Stand-Up Pouch.  It's a smaller package, so it takes up less space in the fridge.  And it stands up on it's own making it easier to scoop the cheese.

This breakfast casserole is quick and easy to throw together.  Mix the eggs and Greek yogurt and bake until the eggs just start to set.

While the eggs bake, sauté breakfast sausage with your favorite veggies.  I used onions, mushrooms, tomatoes and spinach.   Spread the sauté mix on top of the eggs and then cover with KRAFT cheese.  Put the casserole back in the oven and bake until eggs are set and the cheese is melted.

Slice and serve! The slices are a bit on the thin side but they are packed with yumminess.  You can double the recipe to make a 9 x 13 pan for a crowd, too.
