Low Calorie Breakfast Bacon or Ham/Cheese Strata

Norma DeRemer


Well here we go agian guys and gals. Still looking for clutn free, low fat diet dishes.I love this dish for breakfast and it shows only 254 calories with 9 grams of fat. Can't sit and eat the whole thing of course LOL but have a portions that will satisfy you in the morning. I found that the longer this stands before baking, the more custardlike the consistency will be. I have also used turkey bacon instead of ham and truned out great. Shared this one with my nurse friend and neighbor and she love it.
