1 6-oz package Canadian style bacon, chopped
Butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray
1 cup refrigerated red potato wedges, no-oil added, cubed
1 small plum tomato, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
4 large eggs
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
4 teaspoons nonfat half and half
4 teaspoons Swiss cheese, OR Gruyere or white Cheddar cheese, finely shredded (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat inside of four 6-ounce ramekins or custard cups/ramekins with cooking spray; set aside.
Combine Canadian bacon, potatoes, tomato and chives in a medium bowl. Spoon mixture evenly in ramekins.
Break egg into each ramekin on top of the Canadian bacon mixture. Sprinkle with pepper. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of half-and-half over each egg. Place ramekins on baking sheet.
Bake in heated oven for 15-20 minutes or until egg whites are opaque and yolks have firm edges but soft in centers. Remove from oven.
If desired, sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon cheese. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings
* For a Southwest twist, toss the Canadian bacon mixture with 1/2 teaspoon chili powder before spooning it into the ramekins.
