How to Make Breakfast Casserole

You’ll find the full recipe below, but here’s a brief summary: 

  1. Sauté the bell peppers and green onion until tender, then add spinach and cook until wilted. Set the pan aside for a few minutes to cool, so the warm veggies don’t cook the eggs when we stir them together.
  2. Whisk together the eggs with a dash of full-fat dairy, like whole milk or Greek yogurt, plus some salt and pepper. Stir in half of the cheese (we’re reserving the other half for topping the casserole).
  3. Transfer the veggies into the egg mixture, stir to combine, then gently pour it all into a buttered baking dish. Top with the rest of the cheese.
  4. Bake until the eggs are cooked through. That’s it!

How to Prepare This Casserole in Advance

Prepare the mixture as instructed, but refrigerate the egg and veggie mixture in a mixing bowl or in the buttered baking dish for up to two days.

Bake as directed, knowing that your dish may require a few extra minutes in the oven since it’s starting off cold (especially if you refrigerated in the baking dish).
