Place frozen vegetables in a buttered 13 x 9-inch (33 x 23 cm) baking dish. Top with turkey and croutons.

In a large bowl, beat eggs, chicken broth, roasted red pepper and mustard. Pour over croutons. Sprinkle with Canadian Havarti cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.

Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Uncover and bake at 350 °F (180 °C) for 35 to 40 minutes or until knife inserted near the centre comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


You can prepare your own croutons using bread that is a day or two old. Lightly toast 4 cups (1 L) bread cubes (1/2-inch / 1.5 cm) in oven. Combine 1/4 cup (60 mL) each melted butter and vegetable oil with 1 tbsp (15 mL) fine herb seasoning. Pour over croutons and toss to coat. Place in shallow baking pan.

Bake at 400 °F (200 °C) for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Suggestion for Complete Meal: Serve with a glass of tomato juice and a baked apple for dessert.
