What You'll Need

  • 10 slices light whole-grain bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 3/4 cup diced bell peppers
  • 1 (16-ounce) container refrigerated egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • 1 (4-ounce) can diced green chilies, drained
  • 4 scallions, sliced
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Monterey jack cheese, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh salsa

What to Do

  1. Coat a 9- x 13-inch or 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray. Place bread cubes evenly in baking dish; set aside.
  2. Coat a small skillet with cooking spray over medium heat; add peppers and cook 5 minutes or until tender.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk egg substitute, milk, chilies, scallions, 1/2 cup cheese, the chili powder, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  4. Spoon the peppers over the bread, then pour egg mixture over the bread cubes. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup cheese over top of casserole. Bake covered 20 minutes, uncover and bake 15 to 20 more minutes or until firm in center. Top with salsa and serve immediately.


You can garnish each serving with a little reduced-fat sour cream and fresh cilantro if you'd like!
