Broccoli-Cheese Pie

Broccoli-Cheese Pie(Adapted from EW)

1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups plain soy milk
3/4 teaspoon hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 cups cubed whole wheat bread, crusts removed
3 cups broccoli florets
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 1/2 ounces diced Canadian bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
4 ounces grated mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350

Lightly coat a 9" pie dish with cooking spray. Sprinkle panko inside and tilt to coat bottom and sides.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt and pepper. Add bread cubes and stir to coat. Cover and set in the refrigerator until called for.

Steam broccoli until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Rinse under cold water to retain color and drain well. Chop coarsely.

In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add diced bacon, onion and garlic and saute until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion mixture and broccoli to the egg mixture. Stir in cheese. Pour into the pie dish and evenly spread the mixture.

Bake until light golden and set about 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and then cut into wedges.
