This recipe is really versatile, so substituting is always a possibility. You could use any number of ingredients, but this is my favorite combo. I also recommend baking this with a cookie sheet underneath. That makes it easier to transport in and out of the oven. To save on calories, try doing this with out the crust, but make sure to spray the pie plate with non stick spray.

- 1⁄2 cup white onion, diced

- 6 eggs
- 1⁄4 cup fat-free half-and-half
