Ingredients

2 cups shredded hash brown potatoes, defrosted if frozen, and squeezed dry

1 egg white (from 1 large egg), beaten

cooking spray

1 medium onion, chopped

1 red pepper, chopped

1 cup broccoli florets, chopped

1/2 cup shredded low-fat Swiss cheese

6 large eggs

1/2 cup low-fat milk

Directions

3. Coat a medium nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat to medium-high. Sauté onion until brown, 7 to 9 minutes. Add red pepper and broccoli, and cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Layer vegetables and cheese over the prebaked crust.

4. In a medium bowl, beat 6 eggs thoroughly with milk, and pour over crust. Return quiche to oven, and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until eggs are firm.

5. Slice into wedges and serve.

Spinach Artichoke Eggs Benedict

This vegetarian meal looks lovely on a plate and works for brunch or a light dinner.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

1 (9-ounce) package frozen artichoke hearts, defrosted

1½ tsp cornstarch

1/2 cup skim milk

1 heaping tsp Dijon mustard

2 tsp lemon juice

dash of salt, ground pepper

cooking spray

8 large eggs

4 light whole-grain English muffins, toasted

2 cups fresh baby spinach

chopped fresh parsley

Directions

1. Place artichokes in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave 2 to 3 minutes until warm.

2. Make the sauce: Combine cornstarch with milk in a jar, and shake until cornstarch dissolves. Pour into a small saucepan and, over medium heat, stir until thick, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat, and add mustard, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Stir until smooth.

3. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and heat to medium-high. Crack each egg into the hot skillet, and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Slide a spatula under each and flip. Cook another 1 to 2 minutes.

4. Place two English muffin halves on each plate. Top each with a layer of spinach leaves, one egg, a few artichoke hearts, a tablespoon of sauce, and a sprinkle of parsley.
