What ingredients do I need to make this Low Point Denver Egg Casserole?

  • Large eggs or egg whites
  • Skim or unsweetened almond milk
  • Diced ham –I use John Morrell diced ham
  • Red pepper, finely diced
  • Green pepper, finely diced
  • White onion, finely diced
  • Light or fat free cheddar cheese if you use fat free cheese the point will be lower. I usually use fat free or Trader joe’e lite three 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.

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 green pepper, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup white onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup light or fat free cheddar cheese
  • 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.

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?
