  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 25 min
  • Servings 4

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray
1/2
cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/4
cup thinly sliced green onions
1
teaspoon cooking oil
1
cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
1/4
cup fat-free milk
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2
cup (2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1
slice turkey bacon, crisp-cooked and crumbled
8
grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

Directions

  • 1 Coat an unheated large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and green onions. Cook and stir for 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in oil.
  • 2 In a medium bowl, stir together egg, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook, without stirring, until mixture begins to set on the bottom and around edge. Using a large spoon or spatula, lift and fold partially cooked egg mixture so uncooked portion flows underneath.
  • 3 Sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Continue cooking over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes or until egg mixture is cooked through but is still glossy and moist. Remove from heat immediately. (Be careful not to overcook the egg mixture.)
  • 4 To serve, top with tomatoes.
