I've been looking for a recipe like this for awhile, but I balked at the high level of fat in this one. I finally decided to try lightening it. It was really good! I imagine the lightened version is less creamy and less eggy in taste, but it was still very good. Next time I will use white bread because I didn't care for the texture of the wheat. Here are my substitions: -1/2c Veggie Broth for 3 tbsp Vegetable Oil -3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites for 6 eggs -1/4c skim milk for 1/4c half and half -1 8oz Fat Free Cream Cheese and 1 8oz 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese for regular Cream Cheese -2 cups 2% shredded Cheddar instead of regular cheddar - added 1 slice of bread to make serving bigger These substitutions allowed 1 serving to be 270 calories and 14g of fat while keeping most of the protein and taste. Cooking time was reduced by 10-15 minutes as well.
