February's right around the corner, and you know what that means? It's almost National Hot Breakfast Month! To prepare, we're giving you a couple of brand-new, super-delicious breakfast recipes. Aren't YOU lucky?!
3-Cheese Bacon-Apple-Bella Frittata
PER SERVING (1/4th of frittata, 1 large slice): 150 calories, 2.25g fat, 485mg sodium, 12.5g carbs, 1.5g fiber, 6.5g sugars, 18.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Mushrooms, Swiss cheese, bacon, and apples?! This slightly sweet frittata is so good, you'll want to add it into regular rotation!
Ingredients: 1 1/2 cups fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original) 1 cup chopped portabello mushrooms 1 large apple (preferably Fuji), finely chopped 2 slices extra-lean turkey bacon (like the kind by Jennie-O), chopped 2 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese, chopped 1/2 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese 2 tbsp. fat-free non-dairy liquid creamer (like Coffee-mate Original Fat Free) 1 tbsp. reduced-fat Parmesan-style grated topping
Directions: Preheat broiler.
In a medium bowl, combine egg substitute and creamer. Whisk together for 1 minute. Add Swiss cheese and cheddar cheese. Set aside.
Bring a large oven-safe pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat on the stove. (If you're not sure if the handle of your pan is oven-safe, wrap the handle with aluminum foil before heating the pan.)
Add bacon and mushrooms, and cook until bacon is slightly crispy and mushrooms begin to soften, about 3 - 5 minutes.
Add apple and continue to cook until softened, about 2 minutes.
Pour egg mixture into the pan, and tilt pan back and forth to ensure egg mixture is evenly distributed. Make sure cheese is evenly distributed, as well. If needed, run a spatula along the sides of the pan to help egg to flow underneath the bacon, mushrooms, and apple. Cook for 2 minutes, and then remove from heat.
Sprinkle Parm-style topping evenly on top of the frittata. Place under the broiler. Allow to cook for about 4 minutes, until the egg has puffed up and the mixture is set.
Allow to cool, and then cut into quarters. (Frittata may look runny, but it's just all the cheese oozing out!) Enjoy!

The Big Apple French Toast Casserole
PER SERVING (one 4-inch square, about 1 cup): 204 calories, 4.25g fat, 577mg sodium, 30g carbs, 6g fiber, 8.5g sugars, 16.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
AHHHHHHHHHHH! Is it breakfast or dessert? This decadent morning-meal recipe is SO easy and ridiculously delicious. PLEASE make it ASAP. You'll FLIP!
Ingredients: 8 slices light bread (40 - 45 calories each with around 2g fiber per slice), cut into cubes 4 oz. fat-free cream cheese, room temperature 1 medium apple (preferably Fuji), peeled and diced 1 1/4 cups light vanilla soymilk 1 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original) 2 tbsp. sugar-free pancake syrup 2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown), melted 1/4 tsp. cinnamon 1 no-calorie sweetener packet (like Splenda), or more to taste Optional: additional sugar-free pancake syrup, for dipping
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray an 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish with nonstick spray. Place bread cubes evenly along the bottom of the dish.
Sprinkle diced apple evenly over the bread.
In a medium-large bowl, combine all other ingredients (cream cheese, soymilk, egg substitute, syrup, butter, cinnamon, and sweetener). If you like your French toast pretty sweet, add an extra packet of sweetener. Using a handheld electric mixer set to medium speed, mix until lump-free and smooth. Pour mixture over the bread and apple.
Make sure bread is soaked in the liquid mixture. If needed, toss lightly to coat.
Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes, until egg mixture is pretty firm and cooked through. (Be sure not to overcook, as bread may burn.) Let cool slightly and cut into quarters. If you like, serve with additional syrup for dipping. Dig in!
