Veggie Egg Bake with Turkey Bacon tips…

Follow the tips below for the best Broccoli Cheddar Egg Bake experience!

  • Grease your dish: This egg bake will most definitely stick to your baking dish if you do not. And let’s be honest … there’s not much worse then egg stuck on a baking dish or pan!
  • Chop your broccoli small: I simply prefer my broccoli small in this recipe. I don’t like getting a big chunk of broccoli in my breakfast casserole, but if you don’t mind … chop to whatever size you’d like!
  • Meal prep it: You can make this dish at the beginning of the week, store in the fridge, and have a healthy breakfast ready for the next several days.

Swaps or Additions to this Healthy Breakfast Recipe…

This Egg Casserole Recipe is super customizable! Here are some of my swap and addition ideas.

  • Different veggies: Bell pepper, zucchini, fresh garlic, etc. .. I think literally almost any vegetable would be delicious in this egg bake.
  • Normal or no bacon: Feel free to use regular pork bacon instead of turkey … or just leave the meat out in total. Whatever you prefer!
  • Cheese, cheese, cheese: Swap out the cheddar cheese for your favorite – Swiss, parmesan, or mozzarella are all great options
  • Herbs & spices: The seasonings are pretty simple here, but you could spice things up or add fresh herbs for extra flavor.
