Broccoli Cheddar Egg Bake

If you are in need of an easy breakfast that you can meal prep ahead of time, this is it! I absolutely love egg dishes because they keep me full and energized throughout the day. In case you haven’t noticed from previous blogs, I love finding fun ways to sneak tons of vegetables into my diet. This is definitely one of those recipes that doesn’t taste like you’re eating a bunch of greens (but you are)! I also like this as an easy lunch with some potatoes or a side salad. I have even chopped this up into small pieces and made a breakfast taco!

Now let’s make this thing!

I like to chop the vegetables into smaller pieces because a) they don’t overpower the eggs and b) they cook faster.

I also like to lay down the vegetables in the pan before pouring the eggs on top to ensure that I have an even layer of vegetables and each bite has a little bit of everything!

Optional but recommend step to top this dish off with some parmesan cheese!

  4. Sautee vegetables for about 5 minutes until soft
  5. Add eggs and vegetables into a non-stick sprayed dish and bake for 30-35 minutes
