Tasty Tuesday #45
Hey guys! I'm back again with another Tasty Tuesday!
I do alter my recipes to fit my own tastes, so please also feel free to refer back to the original recipe at the bottom of the post to see what I may have eliminated.
Most of my recipes are Weight Watcher friendly, but don't let that scare you away. They are actually really good. I've also found some great websites like Skinny Kitchen and Skinny Taste that I use a lot too. Most of my recipes have some kick to them, so if you are not a big spicy person, adjust the spices to better fit your tastes. OH. And all of the meals I cook are really easy to prepare. I'm not big on difficult meals.
Today I am featuring:
Skinny Hash Browns, Bacon and Eggs Breakfast Casserole
-12 slices bacon (I used turkey bacon)
-1 and 1/2 cups onion, chopped (I only used 1 cup)
-1/2 cup, fat-free sour cream
-1/2 cup, fat-free cottage cheese
-1/2 cup, fat-free milk
-2 eggs, beaten
-2 egg whites
-salt, pepper to taste
-4 cups frozen has browns, not defrosted
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray.
2. Cook bacon until well-done and crispy. (I did mine in the microwave, but you can do however you want.)
3. Cook onions in microwave for 3 minutes.
4. In a large bowl, add cooked onions, crumble in bacon, sour cream, cottage cheese, milk, eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper. Mix well.
5. Pour mixture into baking pan. Spread evenly. Cover the top evenly with frozen hash browns. Make sure to break up the chunks of potato. Spray the top generously with cooking spray. Sprinkle top with salt and pepper.
6. Cover casserole with foil and bake in oven for 30 minutes.
7. Remove cover and bake an additional 30 minutes. To crisp the hash browns, broil for your desired brownness. Make sure to keep your eye on it so it doesn't burn.
8. Remove from oven and let set for 10 minutes to set. Cut into 6 slices.
9. This casserole can be reheated and freezes great. It can be easily doubled and made in a 13x9 dish too.
*I didn't really use fat-free ingredients, but I used Light instead. *shrug*
I'm not really a huge breakfast for dinner person, but I really enjoyed this dish. (And it's something different, since I've never featured a breakfast food on here before!)
I'm a ketchup girl too, so I definitely added that to the top.
