Egg Bake Recipe Directions:

My favorite part of this dish is the leftovers. It’s great cold for a tasty and nutritious breakfast on the go. Make a batch at the beginning of your week,
and you’ll have a quick snack whenever you like.

Step 1:
Saute your veggies. Use the suggestions in my recipe, or better yet, use whatever you have on hand. I NEVER make this dish with the same ingredients,
because it’s the perfect opportunity to clean out the refrigerator. Add salt and pepper as desired.

use lots of fresh veggies –and ham or cooked sausage if you’re feeling carnivorous.

Step 2:
In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Add some fresh herbs if you like. Chives and basil are awesome in this mix.
Step 3:
Lightly grease an oven safe baking dish, about 8 X 10.
Step 4:
Line the bottom of the dish with freshly shredded cheese. I like gruyere and monterey jack the best, but use your favorite cheese.

Step 5:
Evenly spread the sauteed veggies over the cheesy bottom. If you have extra cheese, sprinkle on top.

Step 6:
Pour the egg/milk mix gently over the veggies. The egg will soak to the bottom and cover the top.

Completely cover dish with egg mix.

Step 7:
Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40-50 minutes. Add a sprinkling of cheese to the top during the last 10 minutes, if desired.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

  1. Im going to try adding 33% more ingredients to take it from an 8-9″ pan to a 9×13 pan. Its already super thick or I’d just double it. I’m afraid the quiche wont cook if I double it in a 9×13 lol

  2. I made this Egg Bake for brunch today–it was a complete hit with my family!
    Second servings were in order. Next time (yes, there will be a next time) I intend to double the recipe. Thank you, Chef Buck! Boom! It was easy and tasty just like your Cauilliflower Pizza Crust.
