Sausage and Butternut Squash Breakfast Casserole
1 lb. lean ground turkey sausage
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
½ red onion, diced
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon oregano
½ teaspoon pepper
4 cups spinach, chopped
4 egg whites
1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the sausage and cook until no longer pink, breaking it up as it cooks. Remove and set aside.

Add the salt, garlic powder, oregano, and pepper. Stir together. Add the spinach and cook until it wilts, 1-2 minutes.
