Ingredients

  • 3 cups sliced sweet onions
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 eggs

  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk

Nutritional Facts

Nutritional Analysis: One piece equals 365 calories, 12 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 94 mg cholesterol, 928 mg sodium, 50 g carbohydrate, 5 g fiber, 14 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2-1/2 starch, 2 vegetable, 1-1/2 fat, 1 lean meat.

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick skillet, cook the onions, sugar and salt in oil over low heat for 40 minutes or until onions are softened and liquid has evaporated. Reduce heat to medium-low; add hash browns. Cook 8-10 minutes longer or until potatoes are golden brown. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. To make crust, unroll breadstick dough onto a lightly floured surface and separate into strips. Pinch several breadsticks together, end to end, forming a rope. Holding one end of rope, loosely coil dough to form a circle. Add remaining breadsticks to coil, one at a time, pinching ends together. Tuck end under; pinch to seal. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Roll into a 10-1/2-in. to 11-in. circle. Transfer to an ungreased 9-in. pie plate. Spoon onion mixture into crust. Top with broccoli and cheese.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, egg whites and milk; pour over cheese (pie plate will be full). Bake 350° for 40 minutes. Cover edges with foil. Bake 10-12 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6 servings.
