Ingredients

  • Cooking spray

  • ¼

    pound lean country ham finely chopped

  • cups skim milk

  • 1

    (10½-ounce) can low-salt chicken broth

  • ¾

    cup uncooked quick-cooking grits

  • 1

    cup (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese

  • ¼

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼

    teaspoon pepper

  • 1

    (13½-ounce) can chopped spinach drained and squeezed dry

  • 4

    large egg whites (at room temperature)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375º. Place a large saucepan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Add ham; sauté 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan; set aside. Combine milk and broth in pan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Stir in grits; reduce heat, and simmer 7 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Combine grits mixture, ham, cheese, garlic powder, pepper, and spinach in a large bowl. Stir well; set aside. Beat egg whites at high speed of a mixer until stiff peaks form. Gently fold one-fourth of egg whites into grits mixture; gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon mixture into a 2-quart casserole or soufflé dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375º for 40 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Serving Size: 1 cup
