Ham & Egg Casserole

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic members: Journal as 1 egg alone without added fat
+ 1 ounce low-fat cheese + 1 piece "pancake, waffle" OR 1 portion "frozen
dinner light"

Canola cooking spray
A 9-inch whole-wheat pie shell, thawed (like Wholly Wholesome brand
from Whole Foods with 0 trans fat)
6 ounces Canadian-style bacon, cut into 1/2-inch by 1-inch strips
1 medium sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
2 large eggs
1/2 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup fat-free half-and-half or whole or low-fat milk
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 cup grated Gruyere cheese, packed (4 ounces)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Gently lift thawed pie crust out of the foil
plate it comes in and place in an 8 x 8-inch square baking dish. With your
fingers, stretch and press the crust to fit nicely in the square baking
dish and up the side about 1 inch. Prick bottom of dough with fork several
times. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat with
canola cooking spray and add Canadian bacon and onions. Cook, stirring
occasionally, until both start to brown (about 5 minutes). Let the mixture
cool about 5 minutes, then spread into the pie crust. In mixing bowl,
whisk eggs, egg substitute, fat-free half-and-half or milk, and salt and
pepper until smooth. Pour egg mixture into pie shell with ham and onions.
Sprinkle Gruyere over the top and bake until top is golden brown (about 40
minutes). Serve warm or cold.
