Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 2 1/2 Cups skim milk
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 white or yellow onion, chopped
  • Two 6 ½-ounce jars artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 2 Cups fresh spinach, chopped or one 13 ½-ounce can chopped spinach, drained
  • 4 slices seven-grain bread, torn into crouton-sized pieces
  • 4 Ounces Monterey Jack cheese, shredded or grated

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Beat the eggs and milk together in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the bell pepper, onion, artichoke hearts, and spinach.


Layer the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with the bread cubes. Pour the egg mixture over the top and top with the cheese. Bake until the eggs fluff up and are fully cooked, about 30-35 minutes.

Artichoke Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Artichoke Cooking Tip

Vegetables should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals. Root vegetables, however, should be slowly braised or boiled for in order to ensure their inside is cooked as well as their outside.
