- Substitute shredded Swiss cheese and add a diced tomato and a diced cooked potato.
- To make a meatless version, leave out the bacon bits and add 1 cup (250 mL) cooked chopped broccoli and/or 1 cup (250 mL) cooked sliced mushrooms.
- Preheat oven to 400◦ F (200◦ C)
- 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate, sprayed with vegetable spray
3 large eggs
1 ½ cups 1% milk 375 mL
¼ cup whole wheat flour 50 mL
2 tbsp cornmeal 25 mL
3 green onions, chopped
1 ¼ cup shredded lower-fat Cheddar cheese 300 mL
3 tbsp cooked bacon bits 45 mL
If you include the vegetables in the variation, this dish contains four healthy food groups. (Or serve with a side salad.) It’s simply amazing how the flour and cornmeal in the mixture end up making the bottom crust of this delicious and quick meal.
