Cheesy Egg Casserole

Cheesy Egg Casserole

Since my husband is diabetic, I am always in search of foods he can eat and are really good.  I think that I have found one here, we love it.  Recipe follows:

2 slices white bread, cubed

1/2 cup liquid egg substitute (I use Egg Beaters)

1/2 cup fat-free evaporated milk

1/2 cup reduced-fat finely shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 cup or so Mushrooms (I bought the ones in the jar)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat a 1-1/2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.  Arrange Bread cubes in baking        dish.

2.  In a medium bowl, combine egg substitute, evaporated milk, 1/4 cup cheese, onion powder and mushrooms.

3.  Pour egg mixture over bread cubes, pushing cubes down into liquid.  Let stand about 5 minutes and push cubes into            liquid again, making sure the bread is well coated.

4.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

5.  Cover and bake 15 minutes.  Remove cover and bake 10 additional minutes, or until golden brown and knife inserted in        center comes out clean.  Serve Immediately.
