"Here are all the breakfast favorites—hash browns, eggs, ham and cheese—baked together in one pan," notes Patty Kile from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. Reduced-fat cheese, fat-free milk and lean meat help trim the fat, while chopped apple adds a hint of sweetness to this easy-to-fix skillet breakfasts.
