1.
Preheat oven to 350°.

2. In a large 10" or 12" non-stick skillet, sauté garlic and onions in 1 teaspoon olive oil for about 5 minutes.

3. Add mushrooms and thyme. Cook an additional 5 minutes. Remove skillet from stove.

4. Place spinach in a separate saucepan. Add 1 Tbsp. water. Cover and cook until just wilted.

6. Squeeze out any liquid. Chop leaves.

7. In a good-sized bowl, beat together egg substitute, dill, and pepper.

8. Stir in spinach, mushroom mixture, and feta cheese.

9. Clean non-stick skillet. Spray liberally with vegetable spray. Return skillet to stove over medium heat.

Dietitian’s tip:
This breakfast bake uses egg substitutes instead of whole eggs, which cuts the amount of fat, calories, and cholesterol.
