Print Recipe


Serves: 9

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

2 teaspoons butter

2 cups sliced white button mushrooms

1/2 cup sliced green onion, including green tops

6 slices country-style bread, cubed

2 cups shredded, reduced-fat cheddar cheese

2 cups fat-free or low-fat milk

2 cups egg substitute

1 teaspoon red or green hot pepper sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

Preparation

01Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
02Spray an 8-inch by 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
03In a medium skillet over medium heat, melt butter and add mushrooms. Cook mushrooms about 5 minutes or until softened and brown at edges. Stir in green onion; set aside.
04Place half of the bread cubes in prepared baking dish. Scatter half of the mushroom mixture and half of the cheese over bread cubes. Layer remaining bread cubes and mushroom mixture; set aside.
05In a large bowl, beat milk, egg substitute, pepper sauce, and salt, if desired, until well blended.
06Pour milk mixture over bread cubes and top with the remaining cheese. (Make-ahead suggestion: cover the dish with foil and refrigerate for 8-10 hours before baking.)
07Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 15 minutes or until the top is puffed up and cheese is browned at edges. Let cool for 5 minutes; cut into squares to serve.
