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. I added bacon and a few peppers to mine. It came out amazing!!! Delicious recipe.

  5. Is there anything I can use in place of the eggs that would still make this a low carb meal? 

  6. I am looking for the nutrition facts on servings.Do you have those available somewhere? I just made this & it looks DELICIOUS!

    • Hi Stacy, glad you enjoyed it! I’m not able to provide nutritional information for the recipes for several reasons, including the additional time it takes, the difficulty in doing it accurately, and the sheer number of recipes on my site. If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information.

      I have over 2000 recipes on the site and spend 6-8 hours most days working on the blog. I just can’t edit over 2,000 recipes to add that info, and I know once I do it on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe. Thanks for understanding.

  8. Can you put this casserole together put it in the fridge and take it out an hour or so later and cook it

    • Yes, but it would be best to let it come to room temperature before you cook it. Otherwise the center may take too long to cook before the top gets too brown.

  10. I don’t have access to all-purpose seasoning. Do you have a suggestion on what seasonings I could use instead? This recipe sounds awesome.

  11. Kalyn, thanks for this recipe! I made it last year for a staff breakfast and everyone loved it. I’ve made it many times since then, and it’s always wonderful to make it on a Sunday night and have it ready for early mornings before work. After I made it that first time, though, I learned that in order to refrigerate it and reheat it, one must let the casserole cool COMPLETELY before refrigerating. Otherwise, the reheated broccoli will stink up your entire school! Thank you again for the recipe. Hiding vegetables in entrees is the only way I can get my husband to eat anything healthy!

  12. I make this with shredded swiss and gruyere cheeses and call it crustless quiche. Great for low-carb'ing!

  13. I baked this up last night for dinner and it was so delicious!! I recently went low glycemic to fix my horrible bloat and was so so sooo happy to find your website! Thank you so much for taking the time to list what works for which diet and although low glycemic eating is pretty straight forward I appreciate the listing so much!
    This recipe was so easy,frugal, and there was leftovers..which is always a bonus in my eyes. When you have a husband and never ending hungry teenage boys you absolutely love leftovers. We all loved it and it will be added to my rotation of meals 🙂 I think this is also one of those recipes that works with various things you have on hand. I always have diced roasted sweet potatoes in the fridge and will toss a handful of those in next time with maybe some mushrooms!

    I look forward to trying your other recipes! Thank you again 🙂

  14. KALYN, This is probably my least favorite of all the recipes. I am a big fan,and respect you, however this was so dry,and dull, I couldn't believe it was something you gave us. I followed it true to the recipe, exactly, no subs, I will be having this for the next couple of days/nights like it or not. I have not lost faith. This is missing something.

    • This is the second time you have complained about bad results on a recipe (and once again, I have made this many times myself, always great.) And this recipe has been viewed over 1 million times and there lots and lots of reviews above from people saying how great it is, and no other bad reviews.

      So I have to question whether you're really making the recipes exactly as I'm writing them. I don't mean to be rude at all, but if you made this recipe with ham, mozzarella, and broccoli as I wrote it, I don't see how it could possibly be dry and it definitely wouldn't be dull. Sorry you are not enjoying it.

  15. Can I use frozen broccoli?

    • I haven't made any kind of breakfast casserole with frozen vegetables. I worry a bit that the veggies will be too soft after all the time cooking in the oven, but it might work if you thaw the broccoli completely and drain it very well. Love to hear how it works if you try it!

  16. Kalyn – do you think I could use Swiss instead of the mozzarella without changing it too much? Thank you!

  17. Found your recipe on Pinterest when trying to find a recipe using what I had on hand in my house. This was perfect since I already had a ton of eggs, broccoli, and a ham steak. Thanks for the great dinner idea. ☺

  18. Cooked this last night for dinner and for breakfast all this week. My husband didn't like it very much, but I for 1 thought it was great. More for me! 😉 And it's great for in the morning because I don't have time to cook a breakfast so warming this up is a cinch. Only thing I would change for next time is using at LEAST 10 eggs if I'm using a 9×13 pan. I used 9 eggs and it seems a little thin for me.

  19. I made this for supper tonight and it was really good. Thanks for the recipe!

  20. I adjusted this a little for just my hubby and me. Its been difficult to learn to cook for 2 since my kids are grown! LOL Also my dh is diabetic so its low carb for us! Wow….after cooking one way for 47 yrs, it sure is different learning to cook not only less but completely different. Have this in the oven as I type. I only used 4 eggs, (home grown, free ranged) shredded sharp cheddar cheese, steamed broccoli florets, and cubed deli sliced ham 1/4"…. AND THAT WILL BE OUR SUPPER! (meat, veggie, eggs, dairy)=low carb, high protein. Thank You Going to look at the rest of your recipes to see what I can fix tomorrow! LOL
