Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Gruyère cheese (about 4 oz/115 g)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 7 slices sodium-reduced bacon (210 g), chopped
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 5 slices whole wheat sandwich bread cut in 1-inch cubes (5 cups)

Method

In large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, 1 cup of the cheese, parsley and pepper; set aside.

In 10-inch (25 cm) nonstick ovenproof skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat until slightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion; cook, stirring, until softened and golden, 2 to 3 minutes.

Using rubber spatula, gently fold in bread to coat with bacon mixture. Cook over medium heat, turning often, until lightly toasted, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat.

Stir egg mixture and pour over bread, folding to coat evenly. Bake in 425°F (220°C) oven until puffed and edge is released from pan, 12 to 15 minutes.Sprinkle with remaining cheese; bake until melted, 1 to 2 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
