healthy egg bake

Eggs are such a quick and versatile protein source, and egg bakes couldn’t be easier. I prefer putting anything in the oven over having to baby-sit a pan on the stove. This recipe requires a little stove-top prep, but it’s really simple.

What I love about this egg bake recipe is that it’s truly healthy..  no bread, heavy cream, or cheese that many recipes call for. But it’s still always a crowd-pleaser!

With spinach, tomatoes and fresh basil, this egg bake smells like summer! I’ve made this for brunch, but it’s also great to make on a Sunday night and reheat for quick breakfasts. It will keep fine in the fridge for a couple days. And don’t forget breakfast-for-dinner, my family is notorious for that. 

Even though I can’t eat eggs (I figured that out on a whole foods cleanse), the rest of my family loves them, so I make them anyway. 

Add more veggies to this recipe if you’d like! Maybe some chopped broccoli or peppers, or asparagus in the spring.
