Rated 4 out of 5 by from Tasty but salty! Cut back on the packet. This casserole is a great idea and I made it as a breakfast meal prep to eat throughout the week. The flavor is good but overall this seasoning is too salty, even with the no salt added beans. The ingredients of this recipe work well together and I would make this again using half of the Southwest Slow Cooker Sauce Mix packet. I also used a 16oz container of 100% egg whites + 2 whole eggs instead of the 12 eggs because there's already a lot of fat in this recipe with the cheddar cheese and sliced sausage links. The consistency and color was still very appetizing when it came out of the oven! P.S. I recommend using a scissors to cut the sausage, it's so easy!
