How to Make It

  1. Prepare patties according to package directions; crumble and set aside.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add mushrooms and onion, and sauté 5 minutes or until tender.

  3. Process egg substitute, sour cream, and next 4 ingredients in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

  4. Stir together crumbled breakfast patties, mushroom mixture, egg substitute mixture, and Cheddar cheese. Spoon into a 10-inch quiche pan coated with cooking spray.

  5. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes or until golden. Cool 10 minutes. Cut quiche into 8 wedges.

  6. *If you'd rather have the meat, 1 cup lean chopped cooked ham may be substituted for vegetable breakfast patties.

  7. Note: Individual wedges may be reheated in the microwave at MEDIUM (50% power) 1 minute or until thoroughly heated.
