Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3/4 c Stonyfield Organic Whole Milk
  • 3/4 c Stonyfield Organic Greek Plain Nonfat Yogurt
  • 1 c shredded Gruyere
  • 3/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t black pepper
  • 3 T unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 small onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 lb asparagus (washed, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, tips left intact)
  • 5 slices wheat bread (cut into 1-inch squares)
  • directions

    Step 1

    Heat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, yogurt, Gruyere, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper; set aside.

    Step 2

    Heat butter in a large nonstick oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, onion, asparagus and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to pan and cook 4 minutes or until softened. Increase heat to high and add bread to pan and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted.

    Step 3

    Remove pan from heat and pour in egg mixture, pressing down to ensure bread is submerged. Bake for about 14 minutes or until set and internal temperature measures 160°; serve immediately.

    make it with yogurt instead!
