BROCCOLI CHEESE PIE

 

  • Cooking Time: 35-40
  • Servings: 6
  • Preparation Time: 35

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups 1% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, such as
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups cubed whole-wheat country bread, (about 2 slices, crusts removed)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon, diced (about 2 1/2 ounces)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Monterey Jack, or part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan (6-cup capacity) with cooking spray. Add breadcrumbs, tilting to coat bottom and sides.
  • Whisk eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add bread and stir to coat. Set aside in the refrigerator.
  • Steam broccoli until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Chop coarsely.
  • Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and onion; cook, stirring often, until softened and light golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion mixture and broccoli to the egg mixture; stir in cheese. Pour into the prepared pan, spreading evenly.
  • Bake the pie until light golden and set, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool slightly, cut into wedges and serve.

Notes

Fantastic Sunday brunch option. I think this is a great way to get kids to eat broccoli too.. :) And it weighs in at only 209 calories per slice and serves 6.
