    Nancy, here’s some recipes for breakfast ideas not mentioned. the
    first four can be prepared at night and placed in the fridge. then
    just stir them up a bit and cook as instructed.

    the fifth is just a
    fun thing that kids like too that could be served alone or with bacon
    and eggs;-)

    cheesy frittata
    2 teaspoons smart balance spread
    ? cup sliced onion
    ? cup sliced red bell pepper

    cup sliced zucchini
    2 small plum tomatoes, diced
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
    pinch freshly ground black pepper
    ? cup liquid egg substitute
    ? cup 1% cottage cheese

    cup fat-free evaporated milk
    ? ounce shredded reduced-fat monterey jack cheese
    coat an ovenproof 10″ skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-
    low heat until hot. melt the spread in the skillet.

    add the onion,
    bell pepper, and zucchini and saute over medium-low heat until the
    vegetables are lightly browned, 2-3 minutes. add the tomatoes, basil,
    and black pepper to the skillet and stir to combine. cook until the
    flavors are blended, 2-3 minutes, and remove from the heat.

    the broiler. in a blender, combine the egg substitute, cottage
    cheese, and milk and process until smooth. pour the egg mixture over
    the vegetables.

    cover and cook on medium-low heat until the bottom is
    set and the top is still slightly wet. transfer the skillet to the
    broiler and broil until the top is set, 2-3 minutes. sprinkle with
    the cheese and broil until the cheese melts.
