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!

  4. So very sorry to just read of your fall. You have enough wonderful recipes to keep us all busy in the kitchen. Get healed!

  5. Chrissy, I think this could be a side dish, good idea.

    Becca, I am hanging in there. Not fun though.

  6. Aunt Kalyn! I hope you are ok! We are not on FB anymore so this is the first I heard about your arm. Dang snow and ice. Love you. Heal quickly. And p.s. love this recipe too!

  7. I wonder how this would be with chicken for dinner??? I may try it. Thank you for sharing all of your recipes! Praying fir healing.

  8. Oh yum! This would make a nice addition to a meal you're bringing to a new mom. Looks like a protein-filled, healthy breakfast. Thanks for sharing. Get well soon!

  9. hi snap i also have a broken arm, ice skating, i have recently found your blog, and love your recipes xxx

  10. Kalyn, you're amazing … both for your recipes and your "forge on" attitude! This recipe would be perfect for breakfast after my Valentine's Day party next month. I always look for healthy and hearty recipes for our overnight guests.

    No need to reply to me. Just hoping you heal quickly!

    Hugs,
    Shirley

  11. Kalyn; this doesn't need posting…so sorry about your arm. But suggest that you look into Dragon Dictation…my daughter is using this do to hand problems and it's really excellent. She dictates almost everything and it's usually near perfect. Available for PC or Mac. A bit of learning involved but it might make your life much easier while your arm heals, and also it's fun to dictate!!

    All best, from a frequent follower.

  12. Hi Kalyn, I'm a new follower of your blog as of Jan 9. I just started the South Beach Diet 4 days ago & I wanted to roast some mushrooms for dinner (I love mushrooms & I usually sauté them in a lot of butter, but wanted to do something a lot healthier). So, I googled "roasted mushrooms" and your link came up. Boy, do I feel lucky! Your recipes & blog are just what I needed… I couldn't believe that I stumbled upon your blog having just restarted SB!! This will definitely help me stick to it this time around.

    Thanks so much for your great recipes & tips and I hope your arm heals quickly!

  13. Oh Kalyn I'm so sorry about your injury!! That's awful! I hope your back to yourself in no time!

  14. Ouch, Kalyn, I am sorry to read about your arm. I hope it heals fast and completely.

  15. I should include more veggies in my breakfast… but somehow it doesn't seem to go with my typical chocolate oats. Will have to fix that. Hope your arm heals soon and you adapt to 2 finger typing soon!

  16. On my list for after my next commissary trip. I love the combination of ham and broccoli.

  17. Cristin, it takes me a while, but I can do it!

  18. My goodness! I read yesterday's post earlier today and was sorry to hear of your injury. I'm doing some meal planning right now and was looking through your recipes when I found this one…and then was surprised to realize you posted it today!!! You appear to have mastered the two fingered typing technique! I made your baked pesto chicken yesterday and it was a huge hit, and this recipe looks like a great option for Saturday morning. Thanks for these wonderful recipes! It's really making my renewed effort with South Beach (I'm on day 4 of phase 1) MUCH easier. Sending up prayers that you heal quickly!

  19. Lydia, that's how I feel when I have kale or broccoli for breakfast too.

  20. Dishes like this (minus the ham, for me) are my favorite way to start the day. Whenever I eat broccoli at breakfast, I feel that my day is off to a virtuous start.
