A Savory Breakfast Pie for Pi Day

Math geeks rejoice!!! It’s Pi day!!!  Happy Pi day everyone!!!

I always love Pi day, and I always try to do something fun for my students when it comes around.  Since I am teaching strictly online right now, I decided to have my own celebration, and I started it with a delicious Rutabaga and Kale Pi for breakfast…well actually it’s a quiche, but given the day, we will call it a breakfast pi!  Regardless of what you call it, it is delicious, and rest assured, you can enjoy it on any day, not just Pi day! 🙂

To kick of the celebrating, I pulled out my Pi pie pan and went to work creating this delicious breakfast dish. This savory breakfast pie is delicious, and did I mention that it is delicious? 😉 With plenty of rutabaga and kale, it is extremely good for you, and makes for a great start to your day.

 Let’s take a look at this recipe!



  • 1 medium rutabaga, washed, peeled, and chopped into tiny cubes
  • 2 cups lightly packed kale, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 7 eggs or you can use 12 egg whites
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil


1.) Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  After chopping your rutabaga into tiny cubes, cover them with water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Cook for 10 minutes or until the rutabaga is soft.  Drain and set aside.

2.) While the rutabaga is cooking, heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan.  Add the kale and onion, and cook until the kale is completely wilted.  Set aside.

3.) Lightly coat your pie pan with olive oil, then place the cooked rutabaga in the bottom of the pie pan.  Top the rutabaga with the kale and onion, and then top it all off with the mozzarella cheese.

4.) In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, basil, and garlic powder till thoroughly combined.  Pour the mixture over the contents of the pie pan.

5.) Place the breakfast pi in the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the center is not jiggly.

6.) Cut into triangular pieces, and season with sea salt and pepper.

Yummy, YuMmY, YUMMY! Happy Pi Day! Enjoy! 🙂
