This dish is loaded with protein and veggies, plus it's larger than a standard quiche -- not to mention WAY less fatty. Maybe "rise and shine" isn't such a tall order after all!
1 package refrigerated Pillsbury Crescent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet (or HG Alternative!)
6 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
2 cups chopped broccoli
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup chopped onion (about 1 onion)
1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1 pepper)
2 1/2 cups fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup light plain soymilk
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray the bottom and sides of a deep 9" X 13" baking pan with nonstick spray. Place dough sheet along the bottom. Firmly press dough into the bottom and corners of the pan. Pierce dough several times with a fork.
Bake until dough just begins to puff up, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside to cool. Leave oven on.
Meanwhile, prepare bacon in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (Refer to package instructions for exact cook time and temperature.) Set aside.
Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat on the stove. Add broccoli and 1/4 cup water. Cover and cook until broccoli becomes bright green, about 2 minutes. Uncover and cook until water evaporates, 1 - 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, onion, and bell pepper. Cook and stir until softened, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat, blot away excess moisture, and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine egg substitute, soymilk, and cheese wedges, breaking cheese wedges into pieces. Add garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Whisk until mostly smooth. Chop bacon and add to the bowl. Add cooked veggies and stir well.
Evenly pour contents of the bowl over the dough in the pan. Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake until egg mixture is cooked through, about 40 minutes.
Let slightly cool before slicing. Then serve and enjoy!
