  • Yield: 6 servings
  • Prep time:25 Minutes
  • Cook time:1 Hour, 10 Minutes
  • Stand:10 Minutes


  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Refrigerated butter-flavored spray
  • 1 16-ounce package(s) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed and patted dry
  • 1 cup(s) cubed fully cooked lean ham
  • 1 cube(s) (4 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) minced fresh parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) pepper
  • 1 cube(s) egg substitute
  • 1 cup(s) fat-free evaporated milk
  • 2 tablespoon(s) grated Parmesan cheese


• Spritz one sheet of phyllo dough with butter-flavored spray. Place in a 9-in. pie plate coated with cooking spray; allow one end of dough to overhang edge of plate by 3-4 in. (Until ready to use, keep phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent drying out.) Repeat with remaining phyllo, overlapping the sheets (staggering the points around the plate) and spritzing with butter-flavored spray between each layer.

• In a large bowl, combine the broccoli, ham, cheese, onion, parsley, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper; spoon into crust. Combine egg substitute and milk; pour over broccoli mixture. Fold edges of dough over filling toward center of pie plate. Spritz edges with butter-flavored spray.

• Cover edge of crust with foil. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes. Remove foil. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
