Is this an Egg Bake or an Egg Casserole?
This recipe is technically an “egg bake” which is what I call breakfast casseroles like this that have lots of protein, veggies, and cheese, and just enough egg to hold it together. But if you prefer more of a classic ham and egg casserole, you can definitely use a few more eggs.

I’ve made this a few times now and we love it. I tried it with pepper jack cheese this time & it was fantastic. I’m in love with Spike. Thanks for turning me on to it & thanks to Amazon for having it!
So glad you are enjoying it! Yes, Spike is fantastic in this type of recipe!
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.
Hope you and the husband will enjoy!
This is a favorite breakfast dish that I make often for work or on the weekend. It never gets old.
So glad you’re enjoying it!
I’ve got this casserole in the oven. We shall see if it tastes as good as it looks.😀.
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!
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.
Glad you liked it. Thanks for info about using frozen broccoli.
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.
So glad you have enjoyed it and glad you’re now a fan of Spike Seasoning. I think it’s good in so many things!
Easy to prepare, taste good, and very filling
So glad you enjoyed it!
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.
So fun that happened; glad you enjoyed it!
Can this be made without the ham as a vegetarian option?
Yes, absolutely. You might slightly increase the amount of broccoli and cheese. Hope you enjoy!
I added bacon and a few peppers to mine. It came out amazing!!! Delicious recipe.
I love the sound of that; glad you enjoyed it!
Is there anything I can use in place of the eggs that would still make this a low carb meal?
Maybe make it into a casserole with cauliflower rice, with the cheese holding it together. That’s the only thing I can think of!
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.
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.
I always use Spike Seasoning in egg dishes like this, but any brand of all purpose seasoning (like Mrs. Dash, etc.) would work. I got all these all-purpose seasoning options when I searched on Amazon. If you’re asking what specific spices go in those blends, I wouldn’t know about that. But any spices you would normally use in eggs will be fine, even just salt and pepper.
I found Spike Seasoning at my local health food store, or you can order it from Amazon.
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!
So glad you have enjoyed it!
I make this with shredded swiss and gruyere cheeses and call it crustless quiche. Great for low-carb'ing!
Glad you have enjoyed it!
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 🙂
Thanks Sonya; so glad to hear everyone enjoyed it.
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!
Kalyn – do you think I could use Swiss instead of the mozzarella without changing it too much? Thank you!
It will be a stronger flavor, but if you like Swiss, I think it will be fine! Hope you enjoy!
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. ☺
My pleasure; glad you like it!
