  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Unfold pastry sheets. Roll out 1 sheet to 11-inch square; set aside. Roll out remaining sheet to 12-inch square; use to line bottom and side of 9-inch springform pan sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Reserve 1 Tbsp. eggs. Mix remaining eggs with ricotta, hot sauce and spinach. Layer half each of the bacon, cheddar, ricotta mixture and peppers in crust. Repeat layers.
  • Cover with remaining pastry sheet; fold under edges of pastry, then tuck inside pan. Brush pastry with reserved egg. Cut slits in top crust.
  • Bake 45 to 55 min. or until golden brown. Cool 10 min. Run small knife around edge of pan to loosen crust before removing rim.

Size Wise

Your family will know it is the festive season when this special morning dish is served. Remember to balance your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy a serving of this indulgent dish.

Make Ahead

For added convenience, this morning favorite can be baked ahead of time. Cool, then refrigerate several hours or overnight. When ready to serve, bake, uncovered, in 350°F oven 30 to 40 min. or until heated through.

Variation

If you don't have a springform pan, this recipe can be baked in a 13x9-inch baking dish instead. Roll out bottom and top pastry sheets to fit the dish. For ease in serving, line empty baking dish with foil, with ends of foil extending over sides. Spray with cooking spray. Prepare crust and fill with ingredients as directed. Bake in 350ºF oven 35 to 40 min. or until golden brown. Let stand 10 min. Use foil handles to lift pie from dish before cutting to serve.

    The presentation of this bake is incredible and it is very delicious. The first time I made it, I didn't cook it long enough for the puff pastry to cook. The second time, it was perfect. It was such a big hit both times that I will continue to use this for a brunch.

    Absolutely love this recipe!! The recipe is easy enough to follow, the flavor is very yummy and the presentation is beautiful (springform pan version)! I did change it up a bit using broccoli vs spinach. I also add ham cubes, salt & pepper. Had to rate this one...it's wonderful!

    I loved this recipe (even better reheated next day). My husband and son said it was just ok and that they wouldn't make any special requests for it. That's why I only gave it 3 stars.
