Breakfast Casserole – The Zone Diet Recipes

Ingredients:

4 slices regular bread [6C]

one 6oz package lean ham, cut into cubes [4P,4F]

one cup light cheddar cheese, shredded [4P,18F]

10 eggs equivalent of egg substitute [10P]

Dried mustard to taste

Serve with 1 apple [2C] to round out carb blocks

Directions:

Combine the above ingredients the night before baking. Store in refrigerator overnight.

The next day, place mixture in a 9X13 baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes covered. Remove cover for the last 5 minutes of baking to evaporate excess liquid.

Can be eaten immediately or stored in fridge for one week. I cut the pan into 12 equal squares, eating 2 squares for breakfast each day. Pair with an apple and the three block carb requirement is fulfilled.
