Ingredient Modifications

If you’re familiar with my recipes, you know I love simplicity and saving time. That’s why you see frozen brussels sprouts and precooked bacon. As usual, you’re more than welcome to use fresh!  

In terms of saving extra calories, here are a few ideas: 

  • double the egg whites and omit the whole eggs
  • use turkey or chicken bacon instead of regular pork bacon
  • try a different crust like the high protein crust I used in my apple crisp pie 
  • use a sugar free syrup like Walden Farms pancake syrup for the honey (I’ve included macros for this swap in the recipe notes below)

Okay, that’s all the ingredient notes I have for you. You’ll find the full breakfast pie recipe card below.

Ingredients

  • 1 tube Reduced Fat Crescent Rolls
  • 12 oz bag Frozen Brussels Sprouts
  • 6 slices Cooked Bacon
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 3/4 C (184g) Liquid Egg Whites or whites of 4 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp (42g) Honey or sugar free syrup/sticky sweetener
  • 2 tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350F and spray a pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.

  2. Open the crescent rolls and arrange the triangles to fully cover the pie dish, going about 3/4 up the side. Be sure to press the dough together so there are no cracks. Set aside.

    crescent rolls rolled flat in a pie dish, smoked brussels sprouts in a pan with bacon, and whisked eggs in a bowl before assembling the breakfast pie
  3. Microwave the frozen sprouts for 3 minutes before removing, draining, and halving with a knife.

  4. Add the halved sprouts to a large pan over high heat. Cook until they begin to slightly char.

  5. Add the bacon, honey, and spices, stirring well.

  6. Add the sprouts and bacon mixture to the pie dish on top of the crescent roll crust.

  7. Whisk the eggs and egg whites together before pouring over the top. Be sure to get the crust high enough up the sides of your pie dish or the eggs will spill over the edge and create a soggy bottom on your breakfast pie crust.

  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust's edges are golden brown and the eggs are fully cooked.

    This was amazing! I doubled the recipe and subistuted frozen Brussel sprouts with fresh which i roasted with the bacon and added onion. Turned out amazing. Did need to cook it about 15 minutes longer. Hopefully the left overs are just as delicious.

    * make sure you don’t forget to add the cinnamon before the eggs 🙈
