I created this recipe by considering all the healthy ingredients that could go in it and sounded great! The measurements are not exact but hope I got close enough. I made this for my son's birthday brunch as we're both watching our weight. He raved about it, so I hope you try it and let me know what you think!

This easy breakfast casserole is a great recipe if you're serving a crowd. Parboiling the potatoes means the casserole can quickly be made in the morning. Canadian bacon on top is a nice salty contrast to the cheesy egg filling. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Healthy Breakfast Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. NOTE: This can be a do ahead casserole. I boiled my red potatoes the night before and stored them in the fridge overnight. Parboiling the potatoes ahead of time means less baking time so as not to dry out the remaining ingredients. You can probably experiment with different ingredients and create your own flavors.
  2. Chop all veggies. Combine together; set aside. Whisk eggs, salt, pepper & garlic until well blended (you may have to add more liquid eggs, enough to cover the veggies in a casserole dish). Add cheese to egg mixture and whisk until blended.
  3. Spread veggie mixture into a well-greased casserole dish. Pour egg mixture over veggies. Stir until all veggies are well coated. Top with slices of Canadian bacon.
  4. Bake @ 375 degrees covered in foil for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and finish baking until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean (about 15 minutes longer). Slice into squares. Serve with fruit and enjoy!
