    Dr Harris, it’s almost Easter!

    Yes, and in honor of Easter we found this article and attached recipe on Eatingwell.com. Check it out!

    Eggs are practically synonymous with Easter—but these versatile, protein-packed staples cook up into a perfect meal any time of year.

    Eating eggs might give your meal more staying power too. A recent study found that when people ate a scrambled-egg-and-toast breakfast, they felt more satisfied—and ate less at lunch—than when they ate a bagel (that supplied the same number of calories) another day. The combination of high protein and moderate fat in eggs might make them especially filling, say experts. Even if you’re watching your cholesterol, a daily egg can likely fit into your eating plans.

    MINI CHILE RELLENO CASSEROLES

    INGREDIENTS
    2 4-ounce cans diced green chiles, drained and patted dry
    3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed and patted dry
    4 scallions, thinly sliced
    1 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
    1 1/2 cups nonfat milk
    6 large egg whites
    4 large eggs
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    PREPARATION
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat eight 6-ounce or four 10-ounce heatproof ramekins with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
    Equally divide green chiles, corn and scallions among the ramekins. Top each with cheese. Whisk milk, egg whites, eggs and salt in a medium bowl until combined. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the ramekins.
    Bake the mini casseroles until the tops begin to brown and the eggs are set, about 25 minutes for 6-ounce ramekins and about 35 minutes for 10-ounce ramekins.
