Savory Vegetable Strata

Ingredients

  1. Cooking spray
    7 slices reduced-calorie whole wheat bread
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 medium red onion, chopped
    2 medium garlic cloves, chopped
    3 slices uncooked Canadian bacon, diced
    20 ounces chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry in a dish towel
    10 ounces frozen Winter butternut squash, thawed
    4 large eggs
    6 egg whites
    1/4 cup fat-free skim milk
    1/2 teaspoon table salt
    1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    2 tablespoons Weight Watchers Reduced Fat Mexican-style blend shredded cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Coat a large nonstick baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Cut bread into cubes and spread out on sheet in a single layer. Coat with cooking spray; toast in oven until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spoon into a large bowl; set aside.
  3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add oil. Saute onion until it starts to turn transparent, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add garlic and bacon; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion starts to brown, about 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove skillet from heat and set aside.
  4. Place spinach, squash, eggs, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper in a large bowl; whisk to combine. Add onion mixture; whisk again. Pour over toasted bread cubes and mix with a spoon to thoroughly combine.
  5. Pour mixture into a 9x13-inch nonstick pan and spread into an even layer; sprinkle with cheese. Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 20 to 25 minutes. Slice into 8 pieces and serve.

Serving size: Yields 1 piece per serving.
