Easy Breakfast Egg Casserole
Are you having guests this week? I have a super easy breakfast egg casserole to share with you. Make it ahead and warm it when you need it. Good served both hot or room temperature, heck I’ve even eaten it cold!
I make these eggs casseroles, we call them frittatas, pretty often. I like the option of having something healthful to grab quick in the fridge when I’m short on time for breakfast lunch or dinner. With some toast, I can make it into an egg sandwich. Add some sausage and bulk up the protein. Cook up a side of coconut oil sweet potatoes for a quick dinner option. If you like eggs, then you have to try a breakfast egg casserole!
Lets get started!
- 6-8 eggs
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp olive oil or butter
- ½ cup milk or water (if dairy free)
- 1-2 cups fresh or frozen chopped vegetable of your choice (I used broccoli and sweet bell peppers)
- 1 small onion chopped
- 1 clove of garlic minced
- cooking spray
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a small sauté pan, on medium heat, melt the butter or oil and add your chopped onion, garlic, and vegetables. Cook 5-10 minutes or until tender.
- Crack your eggs into a small bowl, and whisk in the milk or water, salt and pepper.
- Grab an 8x8 baking dish, spray lightly with cooking spray and add the cooked vegetables. Top the cooked vegetables with the eggs and put into a the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set and cooked through.
You can easily double this recipe by using a dozen of eggs and using a 9×13 baking dish. (I like to make it in one of my favorite Le Cruset Stoneware baking dishes because it looks beautiful on the table). No need to transfer your casserole from one thing to another to present to guests!
A nice addition is CHEESE! A sprinkle of freshly grated parmesan or mozzarella really takes eggs to another level!
I’ve made casserole in so many different combinations. I’ve used up cold cut likes ham or pepperoni that needed to be cooked. I’ve made home fries/cooked, chopped potatoes and added those in to the mix! I love love love to add fresh spinach to the eggs before they go in the oven or added a handful on top with the cheese.
You can add breakfast sausage or really anything you have on hand that you want to cook up before it spoils.
Like I said, if you are already hosting and cooking for the holidays, this quick egg casserole is a great option to serve guests that may be coming in for an overnight!
