This easy breakfast pie, packed with nutrient-rich spinach, isnt overly eggy like some quiches. The recipe comes from Carol Reimer of Brownsburg, Indiana.
frozen puff pastry (1 sheet)
package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), softened
eggs, lightly beaten
shredded Colby-Jack cheese, shredded
- Thaw pastry per directions on the box. On floured counter, roll out pastry sheet to a 12-inch square. Transfer to 9-inch pie plate or quiche dish; press into bottom and up sides. Trim edges, leaving 1/2-inch overhang.
- Place spinach in a colander; press out liquid. In large bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth; gradually stir in eggs, shredded cheese and onion powder. Stir in spinach.
- Pour filling into pastry-lined pie plate. Bake in a 375 degrees oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edges of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
