Prep Time: 20 minutes
Bake Time: 50 minutes
Ingredients for Quiche:
2 cups frozen hash brown potatoes (not thawed) diced not shredded
1 cup (4 ounces) lean ham, chopped
½ cup red sweet pepper, chopped
½ cup onion, chopped
4 egg whites
⅔ cup from a (10 ¾ oz) can Campbell’s Healthy Request cream of mushroom soup (condensed)
¼ cup fat-free milk
Black pepper, to taste
Ingredients for Topping:
½ cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 9 x 9 inch baking pan with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, mix together the frozen hash browns, ham, red bell peppers and onions. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, condensed soup, milk and black pepper. Pour over potato mixture and toss to mix. Add mixture to baking pan. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle with cheese and bake an additional 20 minutes until golden brown and cheese is melted.
3. Cut into 6 slices. Using a spatula, carefully remove each slice.
4. This casserole freezes great once baked. I like to wrap into individual servings and store in the freezer. Great for a quick breakfast any day of the week!

Diced frozen hash brown potatoes can be found in the freezer section of most supermarkets. They come diced and contain no fat, just potatoes. Diced potatoes work much better for this recipe than shredded ones.
Trader Joe’s sells (8 oz) packages of Black Forest ham. It’s uncured and contains ‘no nitrates.’ In addition, most health food markets sell this type of ham. Or, use your favorite lean ham such as Oscar Meyer.
Whenever a recipe calls for using eggs, I love Eggland’s Best eggs! They have less saturated fat, less cholesterol, more Vitamin D, more Vitamin E and double the Omega 3 than regular eggs. Most supermarkets see them in the egg aisle.
