I found the original version of this recipe on the Betty Crocker website. I made it healthified by using Heart Smart Bisquick and reduced fat cheese. The little things do make a difference with fat and calories.

I should have read over this recipe a little more before I made it though. Why? I’m not a fan of eggs, never have liked them. I assumed that the Bisquick/egg mixture would make a crust-like topping, but that’s not the case. The mixture instead fills the pan bringing all the ingredients together. It didn’t taste bad though, just not my sort of thing. If you like eggs or casseroles made with eggs, you’ll love it! And it’s super filling. :)

Quick Notes

The original recipe calls for a medium onion, but I feel it is entirely too much so I recommend using a small onion.

Variations

Use reduced fat cheese to lower the fat and calories. You can use original Bisquick mix but it will add fat and calories.

  1. This looks really yummy. I love eggs (they don’t love me) – but I think I will make this one day when the kids and their boyfriends are all over so I can enjoy some – but without a lot of leftovers – LOL

      Yeah I don’t think leftovers work too well with this one. If I remember correctly, we didn’t have any leftovers but I’m sure it would get kinda mushy by the next day. :(
