Egg, Broccoli, and Ham Ring - 9 points

This lovely little ring was my offering for Easter dinner. I first started seeing these a few years ago at  Pampered Chef parties. They are fabulous dishes for showing off the wonders of stonewear. I first tried this particular recipe for Simon's baptism a couple of years ago; it was a big hit at the brunch following the service. The filling is reminiscent of a classic ham quiche, with those salty ham, cheese, and egg flavors that I associate with a good breakfast casserole. The crescent wrap adds a buttery lightness to the dish that makes it easy to justify a second piece. 

Egg, Broccoli, and Ham Ring - From Pillsbury Annual Recipes 2008
1 1/2 cups frozen broccoli, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 oz Neufchatel cheese
3 eggs
6 egg whites
1/4 cup fat free milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
3/4 cup cubed ham
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 cans reduced fat, refridgerated crescent rolls
1/8 cup fat free cheddar, shredded

1. Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Cook broccoli and onion 2-3 minutes, until tender.
2. In a medium bowl, beat Neufchatel cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, and pepper until well combined. Add egg mixture to vegetables in skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally from outside edge to center until eggs are set but still moist. Stir in ham and cheese.
3. Unroll both cans of dough; separate into 16 triangles. Arrange triangles on a baking stone with short sides of triangles toward the center, overlapping wreath shape. Lightly press short sides to flatten dough.
4. Spoon egg mixture onto widest part of dough. Pull end points of triangle over filling, pressing tips together in the center to hold the shape.
5. Bake 25-30 minutes at 375F or until deep, golden brown. (Sprinkle with 1/8 cup fat free cheddar when five minutes remain).
6. Yields 8, 9 point servings

I realize this would have photographed better on a pretty serving plate. Forgive me for wanting to show off my baking stone. As you know, I am seeking treatment for my mild stonewear obsession;)
