A special occasion—birthday, graduation, anniversary, or Valentine's Day—demands a special-occasion breakfast. This is it! A flaky phyllo pastry crust hugs a satisfying filling of scrambled eggs and broccoli bound in a tangle of flavorful, gooey cheese. This is one of those recipes that is best eaten soon after it is baked, so gather everyone to the table just before it finishes cooling slightly so that they can dig in and enjoy the strudel just as soon as it has been sliced. Serve this with fruit salad on the side.


Broccoli florets

2 cup(s), small

Phyllo dough

10 sheet(s), (9 x 14-inch) frozen, thawed


4 large egg(s)

Table salt

½ tsp

Black pepper

¼ tsp

Olive oil

2 tsp

Low-fat hard or semisoft cheese

½ cup(s), shredded, Jarlsberg variety, shredded

Cooking spray

12 spray(s)


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  2. Meanwhile, bring medium saucepan of water to boil. Add broccoli and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  3. Lay 1 phyllo sheet on work surface with long side facing you. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with damp kitchen towel and plastic wrap to prevent it from drying out.) Lightly spray phyllo with nonstick spray. Layer 9 more phyllo sheets on top, lightly spraying each sheet. Cover with plastic wrap.
  4. Beat eggs, salt, and pepper in medium bowl. Stir in broccoli.
  5. Heat oil in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring with silicone spatula, just until set, about 2 minutes. Spoon broccoli-egg mixture over phyllo, leaving 2-inch border. Sprinkle with Jarlsberg.
  6. Fold short sides of phyllo over filling, then gently roll up jelly-roll style. Place strudel, seam-side down, on prepared baking sheet and lightly spray with nonstick spray. Cut four 1-inch slits in top of strudel to allow steam to escape. Bake until filling is heated through and phyllo is golden, about 20 minutes. Let strudel cool on baking sheet on wire rack 15 minutes. Cut into 6 slices.
  7. Per serving: 1 slice
