Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 1 hour and 5 minutes

Ingredients:
8 frozen low-fat waffles
4 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
2 cups sliced mushrooms
4 cups spinach leaves
2 1/2 cups egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
2/3 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" x 13" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Lightly toast waffles, and tear into bite-sized pieces.

Meanwhile, cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet or in the microwave. (See package for cook time and temperature.)

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir mushrooms until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add spinach, and cook and stir until wilted, about 2 minutes.

Transfer veggies to a large bowl, and blot away excess moisture. Chop or crumble bacon, and add to the bowl. Add egg whites/substitute and seasonings, and mix well. Stir in waffle pieces.

Transfer mixture to the baking pan.

Bake until center is firm, about 45 minutes.

Sprinkle with cheese, and bake until melted, about 5 minutes.
