Choices/Exchanges: 1 Nonstarchy vegetable, 1 Lean protein



  • deli ham (low-sodium, extra lean, chopped)
    4 oz
  • sweet onion (thinly sliced)
    1 cup
  • egg substitute
    1 1/2 cup
  • cheddar cheese (reduced-fat, sharp shredded)
    1/2 cup


  1. Place a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat the skillet with nonstick cooking spray, add ham, and cook until beginning to lightly brown, about 2-3 minutes, stirring frequently. Remove from skillet and set aside on separate plate.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium, coat the skillet with nonstick cooking spray, add onions, and cook 4 minutes or until beginning to turn golden, stirring frequently.

  3. Reduce the heat to medium low, add ham to the onions, and cook 1 minute (this allows the flavors to blend and the skillet to cool slightly before the eggs are added). Pour egg substitute evenly over all, cover and cook 8 minutes or until puffy and set.

  4. Remove the skillet from the heat, sprinkle cheese evenly over all, cover and let stand 3 minutes to melt the cheese and develop flavors.
