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!
How to Make Low-Carb Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)
- Dice up enough ham to make 2 cups of diced ham and slice 1/3 cups green onions. Measure one cup grated Mozzarella cheese.
- Cook broccoli just 2 minutes in boiling salted water.
- Then pour broccoli into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well.
- Spray a 9×12″ casserole dish with non-stick spray and layer the broccoli and then the ham. Then put grated low-fat mozzarella and green onions over that.
- Season to taste with Spike Seasoning (affiliate link) or another all-purpose seasoning blend and fresh-ground black pepper.
- Beat the eggs and pour them over the other ingredients.
- Then use a fork to “stir” just until all the ingredients are coated with egg.
- Bake at 375F/190C for 35-45 minutes or until the eggs are set and the top is lightly browned.
Serve hot. Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs can be kept in the fridge for at least a week and reheated in the microwave.
