Use this basic egg bake recipe to use whatever proteins and veggies you already have on hand! Pair with a bed of greens and your favorite roasted vegetable to make it a meal!
8-12 eggs (depending on how many people you're serving, how many meals you want out of it, if meal prepping, or how many add-ins you plan on using)
1/3-1/2 cup of 2% milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt + Pepper
fresh broccoli florets
fresh spinach, chopped julienne
Sauté 1/2 an onion, diced, and 1/2 a diced red pepper in a pan with 2 tsp olive oil and S+P, let cool
green onion, chopped
roasted red peppers, chopped
butternut squash**, thinly diced
sweet potato**, peeled and thinly diced
russet potato, peeled and grated or pre-grated hashbrowns
ground turkey, cooked
Italian chicken/turkey sausage (ground), cooked
turkey bacon, cooked and chopped (or 3 strips of regular bacon for flavor)
Feel free to use Italian seasoning, cumin, etc., or fresh herbs like rosemary, basil or mint.
Cheeses: shredded sharp cheddar, colby jack, mozzarella, parmesan, Italian cheese blend, or feta.
Wash, cook and prepare your add-ins.
Preheat oven to 375.
Whisk eggs with oil, milk and s+p, then set aside.
Depending on how many add-ins you choose or how many eggs you use, you will need a pie dish, 8x8 glass baking pan, or 9x13 glass baking pan.
Layer ingredients in this order: starch, protein, veggies, herbs, cheeses.
Pour egg mixture over add-ins in your desired pan, keep covered with foil for first 30 min.
Bake for 40-55 min., until egg is set (edges will be browned but shouldn't be on top).
Eat immediately or keeps in fridge for about 5 days.

*Make sure to pat dry all your veggies before adding to the dish! Excess moisture is your enemy. For frozen spinach: thaw then wring out in a towel the extra water. Be sure to thaw any frozen veggies you choose to use and get as much moisture out as possible; this makes using fresh ideal.
**A tip on dicing your butternut squash or sweet potato: spiralize or (buy in spirals) then chop the spirals for the perfect size and width for this recipe! But of course, you can also dice as usual too.
