How do you make this Low Point Denver Egg Casserole?

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with non stick cooking spray. Set aside.

Cut, deseed, and dice the red and green peppers and onion.

Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray; add green and red peppers, and onions.

Cook over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes or until soft. 

In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended. Add diced ham, cheese, and cooked veggies. Whisk until combined. 

Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. 

Bake for 22-25 minutes or until puffy and set. ( Remove eggs from the oven before they are completely set since the heat from the dish will cause them to continue to cook for a few minutes once they are removed from the oven. Eggs are best when they aren’t over cooked. )

Slice into 6 even pieces. Serve with your favorite toppings. 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs or 12 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup skim or unsweetened almond milk
  • 6 oz. or 1 1/2 cup diced ham ( I use John Morrell diced ham)
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup white onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup light or fat free cheddar cheese ( I use Trader Joe’s lite 3 cheese blend)
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • Toppings as desired, such as: diced avocado, hot sauce, salsa, or fat free sour cream/non fat greek yogurt for additional points.

 

Directions:

  1. Cut, deseed, and dice the red and green peppers and onion. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 3-quart baking dish with non stick cooking spray. Set aside. 
  2. Spray a skillet with non stick cooking spray; add green and red peppers, and onions. Cook over medium heat for about 3-4 minutes or until soft. 
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, milk, salt and pepper until blended. Add diced ham, cheese, and cooked veggies. Whisk until combined. Pour mixture into prepared baking dish. 
  4. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until puffy and set. ( Remove eggs from the oven before they are completely set since the heat from the dish will cause them to continue to cook for a few minutes once they are removed from the oven. Eggs are best when they aren’t over cooked. )
  5. Slice into 6 even pieces. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Notes:

  • Point value does not include toppings. The point value for includes: diced ham 4 points, light cheese 5 points, and fat free skim milk or unsweetened almond milk 1 points
  • If you use fat free cheddar cheese the point value would be 1 SmartPoint per serving.

Made for breakfast on this cold snowy day in NW MO. I subbed Canadian bacon for the cubed ham. Was a big hit! Thank you Pound Dropper.

This is very good for weekly food prep! I think it would be fine in muffin tins?
