INGREDIENTS

8 ounces multigrain bread with seeds,
cut into ¾-inch cubes
Cooking spray
¾ cup (3 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
¼ cup chopped green onions, divided
¾ cup fat-free milk
¼ cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
⅛ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 ounces lower-sodium ham, minced
2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
3 large egg whites
4 teaspoons reduced-fat sour cream


PREPARATION

1. Preheat oven to 375°.

2. Place bread cubes on a jelly-roll pan and coat the cubes lightly with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, turning once. Remove from oven and cool.

3. Mix together bread, ½ cup cheese, 3 tablespoons onions, milk, broth, pepper, ham and yolks in large bowl. Place egg whites in a small bowl and beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy (about 30 seconds). Gently fold egg whites into bread mixture.

4. Coat 4 (7-ounce) ramekins with cooking spray. Spoon about 1 cup bread mixture into each ramekin. Divide the remaining ¼ cup cheese and 1 tablespoon of onions evenly among ramekins.

5. Bake ramekins at 375° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Top each serving with 1 teaspoon sour cream.
