    Default Ham & Swiss Breakfast Casserole

    I don't remember where I got this recipe. If it was from here on this forum, my apologies for the reprint. This is a bit high in fat (10.1g unless you're able to find low-fat Swiss Cheese), but it only has 5.5 Points. Is it just me or do others have trouble finding low-fat Swiss Cheese too?

    Ham & Swiss Breakfast Casserole
    5 WW Points


    Ingredients
    2 slices of LIGHT whole wheat bread, cut into cubes
    2 ounces lean deli Virginia ham, chopped
    1 cup + (4 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese, divided

    .....(low fat if possible-- which would lower the WW Points)
    1 cup egg beaters
    2 cups skim milk
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray 8 x 8-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

    2. Arrange bread cubes in a single layer in prepared baking pan; sprinkle evenly with ham, then all but two tablespoons of the cheese.

    3. In medium mixing bowl, using a fork, beat eggs. Add milk, salt, and pepper; beat well. Pour egg mixture over ingredients in pan; sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons cheese. Bake until top is browned and knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Serve immediately.


    Makes 4 servings
    5.5 WW Points


    Breakdown for entire casserole (4 servings):

    Swiss Cheese*, 1 cup: 502 calories, 36.7g fat, 0g fiber
    Egg Beaters, 1 cup: 120 calories, 0g fat, 0g fiber
    Skim Milk, 2 cups: 180 caloreis, 0g fat, 0g fiber

    Per Serving: 241 calories, 10.1g fat, 1g fiber, WW Points: 5.5
    *Note: Nutritional facts are for regular Swiss Cheese as I had a hard time finding Low Fat Swiss Cheese. The points would be lower, obviously, using the low-fat cheese.

    This sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. I will give it a try. We enjoy dishes like this for supper at our house also. I've only seen reduced fat swiss slices in the packaged cheese section. I believe Sargento is the brand I've seen & used. There are 10 slices per pkg if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for the tip on Sargento. I'll have to take another look in the store.
