“I make this recipe whenever I'm having overnight guests,” writes Leona Hansen of Kennedy Meadows, California. “Fresh fruit and tortillas or sweet rolls go very well to complete breakfast.”
- 4 cups cubed day-old French bread
- 1 cup cubed fully cooked lean ham
- 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
- 1/4 cup chopped sweet red pepper
- 1-1/4 cups egg substitute
- 1 cup fat-free milk
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
- 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1-1/4 cups shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- Salsa, optional
- In an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray, combine the bread cubes, ham, chilies and red pepper.
- In a small bowl, whisk the egg substitute, milk, onion powder, cumin, mustard and cayenne. Pour over bread mixture; sprinkle with paprika. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

"Delicious. I made this for my extended family and EVERYONE loved it, even the kids. I did serve it with salsa which was good. The only thing I changed was using 5 eggs instead of egg-substitute."
