Ingredients

Vegetable oil cooking spray
8 slices whole-grain bread, cubed
2 cups liquid egg substitute
2 cups non-fat milk
2 teaspoons dried sage
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
½ pound apple-cured bacon, chopped
3 tart apples, such as Granny Smith
3 red apples, such as McIntosh

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray a 13 x 9-inch pan with the cooking spray. Arrange the bread in a pan.
  2. Blend the egg substitute, milk, sage, salt and pepper; pour over the bread. Mix and push the mixture down with a rubber spatula. Set aside.
  3. Cook the bacon thoroughly, but not crisp. Drain on paper towels; set aside.
  4. Wash, core and chop (but do not peel) the apples. Add the apples to the bread mixture; stir well and push down with a rubber spatula. Sprinkle evenly with the bacon.
  5. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

Cooking Tip

Variation: Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar evenly over the top of the casserole after it has baked 30 minutes. Continue cooking until the cheese bubbles, about 20 to 30 minutes.

Serving Suggestion: Create this dish for use as stuffing to accompany a baked ham.
