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!

  1. I’ve got this in the oven at this very moment. I had all ingredients except the green onion. I used a little red onion. I try to secretly incorporate as many keto friendly options into my husbands diet as possible. He has a serious sugar addiction and keto friendly dishes like this keeps his sugar in check. 

  2. This is a favorite breakfast dish that I make often for work or on the weekend. It never gets old.

  6. Thanks for the great recipe! Do you think it would work in a crockpot?

    • I have some egg recipes on the site like this one that use the Casserole Crock Slow Cooker, and that’s the slow cooker I think will be best for this type of recipe. But if you have a large oval slow cooker that will probably work. It will probably be a bit thicker so the cooking time might be a bit longer than the Casserole Crock. Let me know how it works!

  7. This was pretty good. My 4yo didn’t love it, even with ketchup. However my 1yo destroyed it. This was easy to make and I used a frozen bag of broccoli which I cooked half way through. The result was broccoli in the casserole which was slightly crunchy not soggy at all. 

  8. Thanks for reminding me about this dish. I didn’t comment when I first made this, but it really was incredibly tasty. I diced-up a thick slice of lower-sodium ham (Krakus Polish Ham) which I bought at the deli counter, since less sodium is always a good thing. I used 1/2 of the amount of real eggs, and the same equivalent of “Egg Beaters”….in order to make this healthier. I always use light sour cream. BTW, thanks Kalyn, for turning me on to spike Seasoning! I found it at my local health food store. I bought the one w/o sodium, so that I can adjust the sodium in whatever I’m making. This stuff is TERRIFIC, and I’m now obsessed with it.

  9. Easy to prepare, taste good, and very filling

  10. Funny this recipe should come up again, I had the older one open in another tab! I made this recipe for my baby’s 1st birthday dinner because he could live off scrambled eggs, it seems. It was delicious and all I changed was almost fully cooking the broccoli beforehand to make sure it was soft enough.
