When I shared the recipe for Power Greens Salad with Blueberries and Almonds, I raved about how much I love the Power Greens mix of chard, kale, and Spinach I’ve been getting at Costco. And if you know my food preferences at all, you might have guessed I’d be making some kind of breakfast casserole with this delicious mix of greens. In the last couple of weeks I’ve made this Low-CarbPower Greens Breakfast Casserole with Feta and Mozzarella four times, so that’s a sign of how much I like it!

Then last weekend my friend Sean from Punk Domestics stayed at my house when he was in town for the Alt Conference, and when I fed him some of the leftovers for breakfast, he gave the recipe a thumbs up. I actually used a full pound of the greens mix in this, which helped balance out the generous amount of cheese! I think the combination of cheeses here went really well with the variety of greens, so if you like the idea of starting out the day with a healthy dose of greens, give this a try!

I love having this in the fridge for a heat-and-eat breakfast, but I also think this would make a delicious light meal for lunch or dinner, so if you ask me this is pretty much a perfect Meatless Monday dish!

Power Greens Breakfast Casserole found on KalynsKitchen.comHere’s the big bag of greens I started picking up at Costco that started this Power Greens binge at my house. (When I googled it, I found there were lots of companies making a similar mix of greens if you can’t find this one. Heat a little olive oil in a large, deep frying pan and add the greens all at once. Then use a large turner to keep turning the greens over and over until they’re all wilted down. Put the wilted greens in a large glass or ceramic casserole dish that you’ve sprayed with olive oil or non-stick spray. Spread the crumbled Feta, cubes of mozzarella, and sliced green onion on top of the wilted greens. Season to taste with fresh-ground black pepper and Spike Seasoning (or use your favorite seasoning blend that’s good on eggs if you don’t have Spike.)

Power Greens Breakfast Casserole found on KalynsKitchen.comBeat the eggs until yolks and whites are well-combined and then pour over the greens and cheese. I like to use a fork and “stir” the mixture so the top of the casserole shows all the ingredients. Bake at 375F for about 40-45 minutes, or until it’s as browned as you like it. I use this container with a snap-tight lid to keep leftovers in the fridge so I can enjoy this for breakfast for several days after I’ve made a big casserole like this one.

Low-Carb Power Greens Breakfast Casserole with Feta and Mozzarella

Power Greens Breakfast Casserole with Feta and Mozzarella is a great way to get your greens!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. power greens mix (a blend of kale, chard, and spinach)
  • 1-2 tsp. olive oil (more or less, depending on your pan)
  • 4-6 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut in 1/2 inch cubes (Use reduced-fat or full-fat mozzarella, whichever you prefer.)
  • 4 oz. Feta, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • Spike Seasoning to taste, about 1 1/2 teaspoons
  • fresh-ground black pepper to taste, about 3/4 teaspoon
  • 14 eggs
  • sour cream for serving (optional but good)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a large glass or ceramic casserole dish with olive oil or non-stick spray. (My dish was 10″ x 13″; if you don’t have a dish that’s close to that size I would cut down the recipe a bit.)
  2. Heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan with high sides. Turn heat to high, add the greens all at once, then immediately use a large turner to turn greens over and over until they’re completely wilted down. (This will only take a minute or two, watch them carefully.) Put the wilted greens in the bottom of the casserole dish.
  3. Cut the mozzarella into cubes about 1/2 inch square (or you can use grated mozzarella, but I do like the nuggets of melted cheese from the mozzarella cubes.)
  4. Crumble the Feta and slice enough green onions to make 1/2 cup.
  5. Sprinkle the mozzarella, feta, and sliced green onions over the greens.
  6. Season the mixture to taste with Spike Seasoning and fresh-ground black pepper. (Don’t use salt, the Feta is salty enough.)
  7. Beat eggs until the yolks and whites are well-combined, then pour over the greens/cheese mixture. Use a fork to gently “stir” the mixture so the greens, eggs, and cheese are evenly distributed.
  8. Bake 40-45 minutes, or until the mixture is completely set and the top is as brown as you prefer.
  9. Serve hot, with a dollop of low-fat sour cream if desired.

Notes:

I used my favorite Feta for this recipe.

This will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week and can be reheated in a microwave or in a frying pan on the stove.
