HG's Ginormous Oven-Baked Omelette
PER SERVING (1 huge piece, 1/4th of dish): 140 calories, 3g fat, 387mg sodium, 9g carbs, 1g fiber, 5g sugars, 18g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Make it at night, and then have a great protein-packed breakfast ready in seconds in the morning (just heat 'n eat!)...
Ingredients: 2 cups fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters) 1/2 cup fat-free milk 1/2 cup reduced-fat shredded cheese (any flavor) 1 cup sliced bell peppers (any color) 1 cup sliced mushrooms 1/2 cup sliced tomatoes 1/2 cup sliced onions 1 tbsp. reduced-fat parmesan-style grated topping 3/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/8 tsp. black pepper Optional toppings: ketchup, salsa, hot sauce
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Into a deep, round casserole dish (about 9 inches wide) sprayed with nonstick spray, pour egg substitute and milk. Add shredded cheese, tomatoes, garlic powder, and black pepper. Mix well, and then set aside.
Bring a large pan sprayed with nonstick spray (butter-flavored spray if you have it) to high heat. Stirring occasionally, cook peppers, onions, and mushrooms for 2 minutes (just long enough to brown the outsides). Add veggies to the casserole dish, and mix well.
Place dish in the oven and cook for 30 minutes. Next, carefully remove the dish from the oven and evenly cover with parm-style topping. Return it to the oven, and cook for 20 - 25 minutes longer (until the top has puffed and is firm). Allow to cool slightly before cutting. Then, if you like, finish off with the optional ingredients (or any of your fave omelette toppers!).

HG Tip! You don't need any fancy equipment to quickly shred your squash. A basic potato or veggie shredder will do the trick. Just peel a small squash, deseed it, and run it thru the shredder. Weeeee!
Ingredients: 1 heaping cup shredded butternut squash 2 tbsp. chopped onion 1/4 tsp. onion powder 1/4 tsp. garlic powder dash ground cumin dash salt dash pepper additional salt and pepper, to taste Optional toppings: ketchup, salsa, hot sauce
Directions: Spread the shredded squash out between 2 layers of paper towels. Press down to absorb as much of the moisture from the squash as possible. Repeat if necessary, until no more water can be removed.
Toss squash shreds with onion, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Bring a small to medium pan sprayed generously with nonstick spray (a 1 to 2 second spray) to high heat. Add mixture to the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Flip shreds with a spatula and cook for another 2 minutes or so (until mixture is thoroughly cooked and browned). Season to taste with more salt and pepper. If you like, top off with one or more of the optional toppings (everything tastes good topped with these things!). Enjoy!
