How to make Breakfast Casserole with Asparagus, Mushrooms, and Goat Cheese:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe, including nutritional information.)

  1. Wash mushrooms and cut into thick slices; then saute in a small amount of olive oil in a non-stick pan.  I used my new favorite Green Pan (affiliate link) for this.
  2. When mushrooms have released all their liquid and slightly browned, put them in the bottom of the casserole dish. 
  3. Add a little more oil (but don’t wipe out pan) and saute the asparagus 3-4 minutes, or until it’s barely starting to get cooked and has turned bright green. 
  4. Put the asparagus in the casserole dish, season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and black pepper, then gently stir to combine the vegetables.
  5. Cut off desired amount from a log of goat cheese that’s cold from the fridge (so it will slice) and layer the goat cheese on top of the vegetables. 
  6. Pour over beaten eggs.
  7. Bake at 375F/190C until the eggs are well set and the top is starting to lightly brown, about 45 minutes. Serve hot
  8. I love the melted goat cheese in this Breakfast Casserole with Asparagus, Mushrooms, and Goat Cheese! Are you a goat cheese fan?

This delicious Low-Carb Breakfast Casserole with Asparagus, Mushrooms, and Goat Cheese would be perfect for a weekend brunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. fresh asparagus, washed, ends trimmed, and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • 1 lb. fresh mushrooms, washed and cut into thick half slices
  • 1 T olive oil (depending on your pan)
  • 6 oz. goat cheese that comes in a log, cut into very thin slices (keep refrigerated until you are ready to use or it won’t slice well)
  • 12 eggs
  • 2 T half and half (see notes)
  • 1 tsp. Spike Seasoning (see notes)
  • fresh-ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F/190C.
  2. Spray a glass or crockery casserole dish with non-stick spray or mist with olive oil.
  3. Be sure to spray the sides too, or the eggs will stick. (I used a crockery dish that was 12″ x 10″ but any size close to that will work.)
  4. Wash asparagus and mushrooms and spin dry or dry with paper towels.
  5. Cut mushrooms in half lengthwise, then turn and cut into half slices.
  6. Heat a small amount of olive oil in non-stick frying pan and cook the mushrooms until they are softened and lightly browned and all liquid is evaporated, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. Put mushrooms into the casserole dish.
  8. While the mushrooms cook, trim off woody asparagus ends, then cut into pieces about 1-2 inches long.
  9. Add a little more oil to the pan (but don’t wipe out the mushroom residue) and saute the asparagus 3-4 minutes, until it is barely starting to turn bright green.
  10. Add asparagus to casserole dish and gently stir to combine with the mushrooms.
  11. Season vegetables with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and fresh-ground black pepper.
  12. Remove goat cheese from refrigerator and slice into thin slices.
  13. Layer slices of cheese on top of asparagus and mushrooms.
  14. Break eggs into mixing bowl, add milk, half and half, or cream, and beat eggs until whites and yolks are well combined; then pour the eggs over the asparagus, mushrooms, and cheese.
  15. Bake about 45-50 minutes, until eggs are well set, cheese is melted, and casserole is starting to brown a little on the top.
  16. Serve hot, topped with sour cream if desired.
  17. This can be refrigerated and re-heated in the microwave.

Notes

Use milk, half and half, or cream, whichever you prefer. Use any all-purpose seasoning that’s good on vegetables if you don’t have Spike. I used my new favorite Green Pan (affiliate link) for this recipe. This recipe created by Kalyn.
