what I made tonight for dinner

Baked Eggs With Broccoli and Onion
Adapted from Joyce's recipe
(just barely squeaks in at 3 Weight Watchers Points per serving according to my slider)
exported from MasterCook

Serving Size : 9 pieces

3 cups broccoli florets -- cut into 1-inch pieces
1 onion -- diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 whole eggs
1 cup Egg Beaters® 99% egg substitute
2 cups skim milk
2 slices whole wheat bread -- cubed
1/2 teaspoon italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
salt and pepper -- to taste
1 cup queso chihuanahua cheese -- grated
1 tablespoon romano cheese -- grated

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat sautee pan over medium heat. Add olive oil. Sautee broccoli and onion until crisp-tender. Remove from heat.

Beat together eggs, egg substitute, milk, and seasonings.

Sprinkle bread cubes over the bottom of a 9 x 12 inch baking dish. Top with cooked broccoli and onion. Slowly pour in egg mixture. Top with cheeses.

Bake 45 minutes or until eggs are firm and cheese is browned. Serve hot or cold.

  1. Yum! Fancy cheeses!

  2. It was very good but not incredibly filling. If you make this, I would have it with a salad or soup or something. If you have 2 servings it probably bumps up to 7 points because it was really close to the line between 3 and 4.

    I posted it mainly because I had already gone to the trouble of putting it into MasterCook so I could get the points and thought others might like it. I have made this with other veggies and it's a nice thing to take to a potluck brunch or to cook if you have a lot of people coming over for breakfast.
