Although I am not a big egg lover, my husband is, and well I love my husband so I made him this delicious and easy breakfast pie! I will confess, I enjoyed it as well 🙂 It’s full of spinach and cheese and makes a great low point breakfast dish..6 freestyle smart points for a nice large slice!

Prep Time 10 minutes

6 SP freestyle, 7sp/5pp per slice

Ingredients

  • 1 package pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls
  • 1.5 cups fresh chopped spinach
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup light ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Dash of salt & pepper

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Using an 8 inch round pie plate, shape your crescent dough into a pie shell, this will involve a little breaking of dough pieces to form your pie shell. Please note* in other "pie" type recipes that I use the pillsbury dough I pre-bake the dough for 5 minutes or so, I did in this case but it does not need it, my edges were very dark, the eggs need a long time to bake so it is plenty of time for the dough to bake as well, so do not pre-bake your dough.
  • In a bowl whisk your eggs, egg whites and milk together, add in your ricotta cheese, mozzarella and salt and pepper. Stir in your chopped spinach.
  • Pour into your dough pie shell and bake in oven for 40-45 minutes, until the eggs are set.
  • Cut into 6 slices. 6 SP freestyle, 7 smart points per slice or 5 points plus (old WW program)

    This is really tasty! I made mine with 1% cottage cheese to bump up the protein. Can’t wait to make it again for next week’s breakfasts!

    Do you suppose the slices can be frozen individually and successfully reheated? Hubby won’t touch most low fat foods and def not spinach so, it’s just me.

      Hi, yes I think they could definitely be frozen and re-heated, you could swap out the spinach for something he approves of maybe?

    Thanks! There is no vegetable that he approves of, haha! And honestly, I’m used to it. It’s a rare thing for us to even have the same thing for a meal for the past 13 yrs or so.

    I really enjoyed this for breakfast. Easy to assemble, always appreciate that. I will be enjoying it the majority of the week for my breakfast. Add some fruit and I’m right on track for my day.

    I am allergic to egg yolks. Do you think I could do this with all whites?

    I am super excited to make this. Do you think I could bake it like a cristless pie/quiche?
