(Scroll down for complete printable recipe, including nutritional information.)
- Preheat oven to 375 F/190C. Spray glass or crockery casserole dish with non-stick spray or mist with olive oil.

Asparagus, Mushroom, and Goat Cheese Breakfast Casserole
This delicious Low-Carb Asparagus, Mushroom, and Goat Cheese Breakfast Casserole would be perfect for a weekend brunch. And leftovers will reheat beautifully in the microwave.
- 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 (see notes)
- 1 T olive oil (depending on your pan)
- 6 oz. goat cheese that comes in a log, cut into very thin slices
- 12 eggs
- 2 T half and half (see notes)
- 2 tsp. Spike Seasoning (see notes)
- fresh-ground black pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 375 F/190C.
- Spray a 9" x 13" glass or crockery casserole dish with non-stick spray or mist with olive oil. Be sure to spray the sides too, or the eggs will stick.
- If your goat cheese feels at all soft, put it in the freezer to get firm while you prep the other ingredients.
- Wash mushrooms and cut into thick slices (or use pre-sliced mushrooms like I did). Then cook mushrooms in a small amount of olive oil over medium high heat.
- When mushrooms have released all their liquid and slightly browned, put them in the bottom of the casserole dish.
- While mushrooms cook, trim off woody ends of asparagus and cut into pieces about 1-2 inches long.
- Wipe out your pan if it needs it, then add a little more oil and cook the asparagus 3-4 minutes, or until it's barely starting to get cooked and has turned bright green.
- Put the asparagus in the casserole dish, season with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) and black pepper, then gently stir to combine the vegetables.
- Remove goat cheese from the freezer (or fridge), cut off desired amount, cut into slices, and layer the goat cheese on top of the vegetables.
- Beat eggs with the half and half until they're well combined, then pour eggs over the veggies.
- Bake at 375F/190C until the eggs are well set and the top is starting to lightly brown, about 45-50 minutes. Serve hot.
- This can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave.
I used pre-sliced mushrooms which made the recipe even easier.
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.

Still enjoying your site and recipes and still planning for my Feb brunch.
Am curious about the freezing of this. If you freeze and thaw in fridge, how do you reheat?
And does freezing change the taste?
Perfect recipe for asparagus season, which is thankfully upon us.
You never fail to amaze me with wonderful recipes.
Love the idea of sun-dried tomatoes!
lovely!! i added some sundried tomatoes, so delicious 🙂
Valeree, I guess I’m lucky that I have this blog, because I can’t stay out of control for too long! People are depending on me! (Although I never try to pretend that I’m perfect, LOL! My worst time is at Christmas when I gain a few pounds every year and then lose them in January!)
LOL! Sometimes I go WAY off the wagon. I’m back on Atkins induction (day 5) right now because I let nearly fifteen pounds “creep back on” over the past three years. I have a really hard time getting back on board once the carb cravings get me in their clutches. 😀
Valeree, thanks for chiming in. (And good to know I’m not the only one who goes off the wagon once in a while!)
I agree with Kalyn — I use an Atkins induction whenever I’m trying to lose weight because within three days, my desire for carbs is gone. But for me, after a very short time, Atkins gets way too boring. I like veggies too much. So I generally switch to a “good carbs” program at that point. I try to stay there, but eventually I’ll have some bad carbs the the cravings will come roaring back and the weight will start to creep on again. So back I go to Atkins for at least three days. 😀
Monique, I’ve talked to a lot of people who’ve switched to South Beach after doing a more low-carb approach. I think you just need to be careful about slowly adding back whole grains and other “good” carbs to your diet. I strongly recommend reading the whole South Beach Diet book (the newest one is best) and then starting on phase two.
Hi, I have recently lost 50 pounds on Atkins Diet. I still have 70 more pounds to loose. I need a change. Souyh Beach diet seemed the most logical choice. Has anyone made this switch? If so. how did it work for you?
Andra, hope you will really enjoy it.
I have this in the oven now! I used asparagus, mushrooms and low fat feta cheese (about 4 ounces.) I also seasoned the eggs with Bacon Salt, which is so good. I’m going to enjoy this for breakfast this week, or for lunch with a green salad. 🙂
As you can tell, I’ve really been staying away from the computer for a few days! I do appreciate all the Christmas and New Year’s wishes from my great blogging friends and readers!
Happy Holidays to you, Kalyn. Thanks for a year’s worth of good food thoughts. Your blog is one of the first I read and and a solid favorite. Here’s to a great new year.
Kalyn, this a really nice recipe, I love it.
Merry Christmas, Kalyn. I just might make one like this for the family. Thanks.
Kalyn–This sounds delicious! And I applaud your admitting to having overcooked it. Personally, if I decide I would change a recipe when I post it–a little more of this, a little less of that–I just write the recipe as I would prepare it.
Kalyn, I hope you are enjoying your down time with your family and a very happy holiday season to you! This sounds like a great altetnative to the usual breakfast casserole that incorporates sausage, and I will try it the way you suggest!
You do the Christmas casserole too? I thought just my family did this! We always have it every Christmas morning without fail! Great recipe. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Kalyn!
