Heart Healthy Monday: Skinny Hot Brown

Here’s a twist on an old favorite!

Serves: 4


  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 4 oz. thinly sliced or shaved turkey breast
  • 2 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp
  • 1 medium tomato, cut into 8 wedges
  • 4 oz. shredded cheddar or Velveeta cheese (2% or reduced-fat cheeses work well)
  • Paprika or red pepper


Preheat oven to 350 degrees . Separate egg yolks from white. Beat whites with an egg beater or mixer until stiff but not dry. Beat yolks, mustard and nutmeg with a fork until smooth. Fold yolks into whites with a spatula. Spoon egg mixture into a lightly oiled, 8-inch pie pan or glass plate. Spread turkey evenly over eggs; follow with bacon and tomato wedges. Distribute cheese evenly over mixture. Sprinkle with paprika or red pepper. Bake for 10 minutes.

Tip: It is easily adjusted to a meal for one, baking an individual casserole, or made in an 8-inch pie pan, cut into wedges to serve 4.

Note: Serve with fresh fruit and hard rolls.
