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 found this recipe on Weight Watchers last year and have been making it every since. We just had it for dinner last night with a side salad – so yummy! It's one of those casseroles that can be eaten any time of day. When I serve it for dinner, I mix in diced potatoes. I also cut the calories by using only 4 whole eggs, and 6 egg whites. Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I'd like to figure out a way to bring this to an office Christmas potluck on Friday. Any suggestions on how to make this crock pot friendly?

  3. Made this tonight and just did a taste test and it is yummy! Thank you for the detailed directions. I was thinking is this enough eggs and then I saw your note. Perfect!!

  4. This was delicious!!! We substituted cauliflower and diced meatballs for the ham and broccoli only because that was what we had available. We will make this with any meat / vegetable, it is that flexible, thank you!!! (Only used 8 eggs)

  5. Good morning Kayln–this looks so yummy…..What substitution(s) would you suggest for the broccoli ??? We have a family member who does not like broccoli—( more for me I say.LOL…) thanks in advance !

    • Doris, it's hard for me to recommend substitutions without trying them (and there's no way for me to know what vegetables you might like) but here are a lot of other options for Breakfast Casseroles that might give you ideas. Most vegetables will work in this type of dish as long as they're cooked slightly before they go in the casserole, so greens, peppers, etc. are things I use often.

    • Cauliflower is a great substitute, used that tonight and it was delicious! You could use asparagus, brussel sprouts, possibly even peppers…anything that normally tastes good cooked with onions 🙂

    • Never thought of using cauliflower in this, thanks for sharing that it worked well.

  6. Can you freeze this dish?
    Thanks.

  7. I'm a low carb eater and have been since 1980. I love all the recipes and spices that make my meals fantastic. My only comment is that I don't see the carb count. Could you please tell me how many per serving? I would like to prepare this dish on Sunday.

    • I don't calculate carbs, but if you look immediately after the recipe there's a link to Calorie Count where you can enter the ingredients and number of servings and it will calculate it for you.

  8. Thank you for this recipe, I found it through Pinterest. It's so very yummy and I am glad to have it for variety in the South Beach diet. It is just me and my husband at home so it makes breakfast for the both of us all week long and then some!

  9. Eggcellent dish!! Just finished making this! Swapped out the broccoli for broccolini, brussel sprouts and tomato – trying to use up what's in the fridge. Very easy, minimal prep! I'm keeping this one for sure!! 🙂

  10. Chasing Joy, so glad you liked it!

  11. This was GREAT!!! Loved it.

  12. Neil, so glad you're enjoying it.

  13. I make this all the time, the possibilities are endless.You can sit at the table and eat it or put between two pieces of bread and eat it on the go!!

  14. People are obviously free to use any ingredients they choose when they use my recipe. However, this site contains recipes suitable for the South Beach Diet, and comments arguing against those principles or recommending or linking to other eating plans will not be published.

  15. Jennifer, I haven't tried it that way. If you wanted to make it ahead, I would cut up ham, grate the cheese, blanch the broccoli, and even beat the eggs ahead and store ingredients separately, then assemble and bake the next day. You might need to cook a little longer if everything is cold from the fridge; I'd let it come to room temperature before baking if you have time.

  16. Can you make this the day before cooking?

  17. I haven't made it with frozen broccoli, but it's probably not bad. I would just thaw the broccoli, don't pre-cook, and be sure to drain well.

  18. Hi,
    I just found this recipe on pinterest and I know I'm about a year late but can I use thawed frozen broccoli in this? My husband is not a fan of broccoli but me and the kiddos are so I usually buy frozen since we need a lot less with just us eating.

  19. This was very good! I used 8 eggs and cooked it for 45 minutes and it came out wonderful! Next time I think I'll add some sautéed onions and a bit more ham.
    Thank you for such a delicious dinner idea!

  20. Cheryl, so glad you enjoyed it!
