Serve with a dollop of sour cream and sprinkle with chives, as desired.Nutrition FactsLow Carb Breakfast CasseroleAmount Per ServingCalories 425Calories from Fat 315% Daily Value*Total Fat 35g54%Saturated Fat 13g65%Cholesterol 236mg79%Sodium 811mg34%Potassium 298mg9%Total Carbohydrates 3g1%Sugars 1gProtein 21g42%Vitamin A15.9%Vitamin C16.5%Calcium18%Iron8.6%* Percent Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet.
