If you check out my recipe category  for Eggs, you see that I’ve come up with a lot of variations for low-carb breakfast casseroles through the years. I make breakfast casseroles on the weekend for Weekend Food Prep, cut into individual servings, and keep in a container in the fridge to eat for breakfast during the week.

Low-Carb Breakfast Casseroles are definitely good any time of year, but when the weather gets cold you’re more likely to turn on your oven to make a breakfast like this, so I’m reminding you about this mega-popular Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake. This recipe is so simple that I’m not sure why it’s so popular, but it’s always one of the top ten recipes on this site if you check that list in the sidebar!

I did include this recipe in the recent collection of Low-Carb and Keto Breakfast Casseroles Your Family Will Love, but technically this is a variation I’m calling an egg bake. That means this Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake has lots of spinach and cheese, and just enough egg to barely hold it together. I love the idea of starting out the day with a big serving of spinach, and this Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake is so delicious you won’t even remember that you’re eating something that’s good for you!

How to Make Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe with nutritional information.)

  1. I use a whole 5 oz. package of organic spinach in this, which is about 4 cups of baby spinach. Saute the spinach just until it’s barely wilted.
  2. Then spread it out in a layer in the bottom of the 8 1/2 X 12 casserole dish.
  3. Spread a generous layer of cheese over the spinach. No matter what else I’m using, I always add green onions!
  4. Pour the beaten eggs over the spinach and cheese.
  5. Then use a fork to “stir” the mixture so the spinach, egg, and cheese is well combined.
  6. Bake about 35 minutes, or until the mixture is set and lightly browned.
  7. Serve hot, or cut into portions to keep in the fridge and microwave for a minute or two for a quick healthful breakfast!

Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake

Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake

Yield 6 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

This Low-Carb Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake has spinach, mozzarella, and green onion and just enough egg to hold it together!

Ingredients

  • 5 oz. organic fresh spinach (4 cups packed)
  • 1-2 tsp. olive oil (depending on your pan)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. Spike seasoning (or use any all purpose seasoning mix that's good with eggs)
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C.  Spray an 8 1/2 inch by 12 inch glass or crockery casserole dish with olive oil or nonstick spray.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add spinach all at once, and stir just until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Transfer spinach to the casserole dish, spreading it around so all the bottom of the dish is covered.
  4. Layer the grated cheese and sliced onions on top of the spinach.
  5. Beat the eggs with Spike Seasoning (or other seasoning mix) and salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
  6. Pour the egg mixture over the spinach/cheese combination, and then use a fork to gently "stir" so the eggs, spinach, and cheese are evenly combined.
  7. Bake about 35 minutes or until the mixture is completely set and starting to lightly brown.  Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting.
  8. The egg bake will settle down some as it cools.  Serve hot.
  9. This can be cut into individual servings to keep in the fridge and microwaved for a quick breakfast during the week.  Don't microwave longer than 1-2 minutes or the eggs can get slightly rubbery.

Notes

This is good with sour cream.  I also like a little Green Tabasco Sauce sprinkled on the top.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
This Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake uses a generous amount of cheese, so it’s important to use low-fat mozzarella if you’re making it for the South Beach Diet. With that caution, everything here is a  low-glycemic ingredient and this recipe would be suitable for all phases of South Beach. This is also a great recipe for any other type of Low-Carb eating plan, and low-carb or keto diet plans would prefer full-fat cheese and wouldn’t even mind a bit more cheese!

  1. So glad to find this site! South Beach is a way of life in our house, it's always nice to find new recipes. Will be trying this breakfast casserole very soon! Thanks again!

  2. First-time visitor – love your website! This recipe was great and super easy! My husband and I both loved it. We changed it a bit because I didn't have some of the ingredients. Instead of green onion, I added onion powder. I added sundried tomatoes, after seeing an earlier suggestion for this in the comments. I also added garlic powder, basil, oregano, and red pepper flakes. This is a healthy way to get some extra veggies, and it's a pretty and impressive-looking dish.

  3. So glad you have been enjoying it so much!

  4. I found this via pinterest and LOVE it. I have made this several times and will continue to make. Very easy to make. I've shared this recipe with friends! I sprinkle with some hot sauce yum!

  5. Jaime, I believe everyone should be allowed to make their own food choices, and after writing This Piece About MSG for BlogHer.com, I am convinced it is safe (as are many food experts.) However, of course you are free to substitute anything you wish when you make the recipe.

  6. This looks great. My only hesitation is using the Spike seasoning since it's MSG. I have kids. MSG crosses the blood brain barrier and is a neuro-exciter. Not exactly "kid food". I will try it with some other real herbs and spices.

    Thanks!

  7. I made this last week and added some mushrooms and it was amazing – It lasted the whole week and was a huge time saver for me in the morning! Thank you

  8. Michelle, so glad you're enjoying it!

  9. Just wanted to say I made this about 4 times already. I change the spices and cheese and added Apple Gate bacon the last time. Yum. By mistake I didn't saute the spinach or onions and it came good anyways. Just one step to omit.(the bacon also wasn't cooked before)

  10. Hey Kalyn

    I found your blog through this recipe on Punchfork. Not into any particular diet – just thought it looked yummy, and it was!

    I made them as individual servings in ramekins as a way of using up some leftover stuff I had in the fridge. I only made 2 and had intended eating the other for breakfast but it got snaffled up straight away! Guess that happens when you share a house! Will definitely be making these again. I'm thinking of adding in some chopped bacon next time!

    Great blog!

  11. I haven't tried it with Egg Beaters, but I think it would work.

  12. Looks great! Would it work using Egg Beaters?

  13. So glad you enjoyed it!

  14. Thank you so much for the delicious recipe, Kalyn! I made this for dinner tonight, and my 14-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy loved it (hubs is out of town, but I know he'd love it too). So did I, of course!I recommended the recipe to my vegetarian friend as well.

  15. Ah Michelle, so glad you enjoyed it!

  16. I just made this. And tasted it. Boy is this good!!!!

  17. Will be making this tonight for breakfast on the run. Sounds yummy and simple and thats what this working girl needs. Thanks for posting this. 🙂

  18. Thanks Cassandra! Welcome, and so glad you enjoyed it!

  19. First-time visitor here…I made this for brunch today, and it was excellent! Even better, I have breakfast ready-made for the next several days. 🙂 Thanks!

    Great blog, by the way….I'll be back!
