  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3¼ cups 1% low-fat milk, divided
  • 1 (8 ounce) carton egg substitute

  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 10 (1½ ounce) slices sourdough bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 8 ounces 33%-less-sodium smoked ham, coarsely chopped

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Sauté mushrooms in a skillet with 1 teaspoon olive oil.
