Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs
Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs has lots of broccoli with a little ham and mozzarella baked with the eggs for a delicious combination! And this is a low-carb breakfast the whole family is probably going to like.
I don’t usually post on Sunday, but as I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m in Costa Rica! It’s lovely here and tomorrow when I’d usually be sharing a recipe I’ll be leaving way early in the morning to go on a river cruise. So tonight while I have a minute I’m reminding you about this favorite breakfast casserole. If you’re one of the many people who are starting a low-carb eating journey today or tomorrow, you definitely should try this recipe.
This breakfast casserole is loaded with low-carb ingredients, plus I think trying to eat vegetables with every meal is one of the best healthy eating tips ever, and I’ve made this quite a few times to keep in the fridge for several days of tasty breakfasts. I’ve enjoyed it in a flatter version and also in the version in these photos which has a bit more broccoli, ham, and egg, and I’ll give a range in the recipe so you can decide which version you want. But if you like broccoli, ham, and mozzarella, give this a try; so many people on Pinterest seem to be liking it!
And this is a perfect Weekend Food Prep recipe if you want to save the recipe and make it next weekend!

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)
- Dice up enough ham to make 2 cups of diced ham and slice 1/3 cups green onions. Measure one cup grated Mozzarella cheese.
- Cook broccoli just 2 minutes in boiling salted water.
- Then pour broccoli into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well.
- Spray a 9×12″ casserole dish with non-stick spray and layer the broccoli and then the ham. Then put grated low-fat mozzarella and green onions over that.
- Season to taste with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) or another all-purpose seasoning blend and fresh-ground black pepper.
- Beat the eggs and pour them over the other ingredients.
- Then use a fork to “stir” just until all the ingredients are coated with egg.
- Bake at 375F/190C for 35-45 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top is lightly browned.
- Serve hot. Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs can be kept in the fridge for at least a week and reheated in the microwave.
