Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole

Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole

I know you are used to seeing lots of sugar treats here, but today we are going to take a look at one of my favorite lunch meals.  My husband makes this Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole for us to eat throughout the week.

He usually eats this for breakfast and I will usually have it for lunch.    The egg casserole is not something new.  I love it because you can change it up with different vegetables each time.  Now because I’m the one making all the sugar, and my husband is the one making the dinners, I had to ask him for the ingredients.  My husband kind of laughed at me and said he bakes by feeling.  He just throws in what he wants and doesn’t measure.  So the other day I had him make this with me,  and I measured the ingredients for this Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole.  He said I was cramping his style by making him measure :-)

 For this particular egg casserole we used red onion, mushrooms, broccoli, a can of tomatoes, and a bag of sharp Sargento cheese.   We like to use a food processor to chop the vegetables.  It will cut down on your prep time by quite a bit.  We have the Ninja and I love it.  It is perfect for finely dicing your ingredients in a very short amount of time.   Whisk your eggs, stir in the vegetables, and pour in a baking dish.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  One bowl to clean and no mixer.  You need easy recipes like this every once in a while.

This Broccoli and Cheese Egg Casserole is so delicious.  The best thing about this casserole is that it reheats well.  I usually reheat a square in the microwave for lunch.  It is a nice meal to make up and have in your refrigerator for the week.

Eating a healthy lunch means I can have that brownie or cookie in the afternoon.  Oh wait!  That isn’t how healthy eating is supposed to work!

    The casserole looks really yummy, but I am going to have to try the hot chocolate cheesecakes very soon!! ALL of your food is so very tempting, and everything I have tried is delicious. Thank you for sharing.

      This is the perfect recipe for your diet Jenn!!! I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! Good luck not eating the sweets…there is no way I could do that!!!

    This looks fantastic! And i’m the SAME way as your husband…I don’t measure. I made up a yummy apple dip that I decided last minute to blog about and then thought crud…I don’t have measurements! I just through stuff together and go by sight.

    • Jocelyn Brubaker says

      He grumbled the whole time I made him measure :-) I had to share your comment with him because I knew he would appreciate it!!!

    Do you make this ahead of time or right before serving? How long do you suggest cooling before serving.
    I want to make this for brunch Sunday for 16 people. I usually don’t do new recipes but this sounds delicious and healthy.

      You can actually do either. It reheats very well if you want to make it the night before. We just heat ours up in the microwave for about a minute per serving. Or you could serve it right out of the oven. Hope you enjoy it!!!

    I do 98% of the cooking in my household, so I am always looking for quick, healthy meals…my partner does the other 2%…the kids have their faves that only he can make properly lol…so we are a house of men who cook!
    Our kids…1 of mine, 2 of his…like chicken dishes, but we are greatly a vegetarian family, so it is great to find a “breakfast casserole” without loads of bacon.
    I’m excited to try this recipe; I already taste it with alternative veg as well…spinach and mushrooms, yum!

    Made this tonight, but cut it down just for me. I didn’t use the tomatoes but added some chopped up zucchini and ham.

    I’ll definitely make this again!
