Most chicken sausages are 140 calories or so per serving making it a great low cal dinner or lunch alternative. They certainly don’t replace pork sausage, but take them for what they are and you won’t be disappointed in their spicy, sausage goodness 🙂 Try serving with Zesty Coleslaw and a small baked potato for a great meal.
There are so many good things in this casserole – and all the flavors mesh incredibly well. The mellow swiss cheese is the perfect cheese for this recipe.
