"One of the nicest things in life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating."

Make Ahead English Muffin Breakfast
Prepare the night before for an easy but
elegant special occasion breakfast or brunch.
75 Minutes to Prepare and Cook
6 Whole Wheat English Muffins
12 slices Canadian Bacon - about 1.5 packages (6 oz each)
2 cup Egg Beaters
1 cup Breakstone Fat Free Sour Cream
1/2 cup Kraft 2% Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1/2 cup Kraft Fat Free Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 cup Skim Milk
1 tbsp. Dijon Mustard
Split the English muffins and lightly toast in oven.
Spray a shallow casserole dish with pam or butter lightly.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together egg beaters, milk, sour cream, mustard,
(and if desired a dash of salt, black pepper, and hot sauce).
Cut toasted English Muffin halves into semi-circles. Stack Canadian
Bacon slices and cut in half to make semi-circles as well.
In casserole dish, arrange muffin halves alternating with Canadian
bacon slices. I like to place them so the rounded edges are up and the
layers sort of overlap like shingles. Sprinkle with mixture of cheeses.
Pour egg mixture over muffins, cheese and bacon; cover tightly with
plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least an hour and up to overnight.
When ready to bake ... Remove casserole from oven and allow to come
to room temperature if possible.
Preheat oven to 350°. Bake until puffed and set in the center about
1 hour and 30 minutes but up to 2 hours depending on how cold the casserole
was when it went into the oven and how deep or how shallow your dish is.
You can loosely cover with foil if it starts to brown too quickly. Let
stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.
** You can, of course, substitute ingredients but this will alter the
nutritional content. All fat free cheese would help lower fat/calories,
but I've found it doesn't taste as good. Using regular eggs instead of
Egg Beaters works fine, but it increases fat/cals/cholesterol. If you like,
you can add steamed broccoli, asparagus tips, diced zucchini etc. to the
filling for a more quiche-like finished dish.
