Serving Size: 1 4"x4" piece


  • 3 cups vegetables (sliced or chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon oil (canola or vegetable)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced, or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 package (3 ounces) light cream cheese (also called Neufchatel), softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup cubed bread (day old, about 1 slice)
  • 1/3 cup cubed ham (cooked)
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cut the vegetables so they are about the same size.
  3. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large skillet. Add the vegetables and garlic and cook until tender (stirring occasionally). Turn off heat and pat the vegetables with paper towels to remove the moisture. Set aside.
  4. Beat the cream cheese until smooth in a large bowl. Add eggs and beat well.
  5. Stir in vegetables, bread, cubed ham, and pepper.
  6. Pour into a greased 8″x 8″ baking dish or small casserole dish.
  7. Bake uncovered for 10-15 minutes or until the egg mixture is set.
  8. Remove from heat, sprinkle on the cheese, and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.


Use whatever fresh or frozen vegetables you have available. Frozen vegetables should be thawed first.

Putting the cheese on top lets you use less cheese. It still gives you a cheesy flavor and appearance.

Omit the ham and cheese or use less to reduce the amount of sodium.
