6 slices whole-wheat bread, crusts removed

1/4 cup melted unsalted butter

6 eggs

1/2 cup low-fat shredded Cheddar cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly spray 6 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray.

Brush both sides of the bread slices with the melted butter. Press one slice of bread into each muffin cup so that the edges come up over the edges of the muffin cup. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven. Break one egg into each toast cup and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the 6 cups. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Serves 6


2 cups cooked turkey or chicken, shredded or cut-up

1 jar (4 1/2 oz) sliced mushrooms, drained

1/2 cup sliced green onions

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup shredded natural Swiss cheese

1 1/2 cups milk

3/4 cup baking mix (such as Bisquick)

3 eggs

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly spray a 10-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle turkey, mushrooms, onions, salt and cheese in the pie plate. Beat milk, baking mix and eggs together until smooth. Pour into pie plate. Bake at 400 degrees until golden brown and a knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean. This should take 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Garnish with some fresh parsley if desired. Leftovers should be refrigerated.
