I adapted this recipe from a magazine called Christmas Cooking Southern Style. I changed the way the mag prepared it, using new and healthier ingredients.


  • 2 tbsp. oilve oil
  • 1/2 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green onion
  • 2 handfuls fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup diced lean ham
  • 10 eggs (we use EggBeaters. It's one 8oz cart plus two egg whites from another cart)
  • 1 3oz package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 (17.3oz) box frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese


  • Directions for egg mix: Heat oil in a large nonstick saute pan.
  • Combine red pepper, onion, spinach and ham and heat until sauted (about 5min).
  • Add all eggs into mix and cook, stirring frequently until set.
  • Add cheese, cream cheese and garlic salt, stirring until melted.
  • Directions for pastry: On a lightly floured surface roll pastry into a 12x10in rectangle.
  • Trim both top corners of pasty and notch opposite short side of pasty.
  • Cut expoxed pastry diagonally into strips.
  • Move pastry dough to a lined baking pan.
  • Spoon egg filling down the center of pastry.
  • Then fold top edge over pastry over egg filling.
  • Braid pastry strips over filling and tuck ends of pastry strips under at opposite ends.
  • Brush pastry dough with some olive oil.
  • Preheat oven to 400F. Bake for 25min, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake until cheese on top is melted. Serve hot.
