I created this recipe by considering all the healthy ingredients that could go in it and sounded great! The measurements are not exact but hope I got close enough.
I made this for my son's birthday brunch as we're both watching our weight. He raved about it, so I hope you try it and let me know what you think!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This will be a big hit at my next cousins weekend! Canadian bacon is a staple around our breakfast table and I loved the addition of fresh vegetables. I like the parboiling tip too. By doing this, it made everything perfectly done. A great breakfast casserole!

Ingredients

1 c
egg whites, liquid
1/2 c
eggs, liquid (an eggs beaters type)
2 c
squash, fresh - chopped (i used 2 zucchini and 1 yellow crooked neck)
1 c
mushrooms - chopped
1 1/2 tsp
garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste (approx 1/2 tsp of ea)
1/2 c
green onions - choppped (approx 3-4)
2 c
red potatoes (par boiled and chopped) boil for 20 minutes whole, then when cool, cut into small squares)
1 c
low fat shredded cheese (any kind) i used sharp cheddar
6-8 slice
canadian bacon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
NOTE: This can be a do ahead casserole. I boiled my red potatoes the night before and stored them in the fridge overnight. Par boiling the potatoes ahead of time means less baking time so as not to dry out the remaining ingredients.
You can probably experiment with different ingredients and create your own flavors.
2
Chop all veggies, combine together, set aside
Wisk eggs, salt, pepper & garlic until well blended ( you may have to add more liquid eggs, enough to cover the veggies in a casserole dish) Add cheese to egg mixture and wisk until blended.
3
Spread veggie mixture into well greased casserole dish. Pour egg mixture over veggies- stir until all veggies are well coated.
Top with slices of Canadian bacon
4
Bake (covered with foil the first 20 minutes)@ 375 degrees. You may have to add a few minutes.
Remove the foil and finish baking until toothpick inserted in center, comes out clean. Slice into squares
Serve with fruit and enjoy!
