Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

8 square wonton wrappers

2 slices turkey bacon or center-cut bacon

1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese

2 tbsp. light/reduced-fat cream cheese

1 cup chopped mushrooms

1 cup (about 8 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/3 cup chopped scallions

1/4 tsp. salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray.

Press wonton wrappers into the 8 cups of the muffin pan. Lightly spray with nonstick spray. Bake until lightly browned, about 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare bacon according to package directions, either in the microwave or in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray. Once cool enough to handle, crumble or chop.

In a small bowl, mix cheese wedge with cream cheese until smooth and uniform.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms for 2 minutes.

Add egg, scallions, salt, and cheese mixture to the skillet. Cook and scramble until fully cooked, about 4 minutes.

Remove from heat, and stir in bacon.

Just before serving, evenly distribute mixture among the wonton cups.
