I try to make a breakfast pie or Quiche on Sundays, this way I have a grab & go healthy breakfast waiting for me to take to work on Monday. ย This breakfast pie is a healthier Quiche since I use hash brown potatoes as a crust. ย I picked up that idea up from a cousin that is a registered dietician. This 140 calorie & low points breakfast is an easy go to while doing weight watchers or if you are trying to get your waistline ready for the summer. ย  Enjoy!
