Customize the recipe with your favorite veggies, and bake for a delicious breakfast meal.I genuinely believe that behind every blogger, there is a carton of eggs waiting to be demolished. And not for recipe development or cake baking or whatever the recipe du jour, but for every other meal where the last thing you want to do is be innovative in the kitchen.

I’ve yet to meet a blogger (unless they’re vegan or egg-free) who doesn’t admit to eating a crap ton of eggs on a daily basis. Today alone we went through 9…NINE…eggs in my house. With two people. How is that even possible?

Customize the recipe with your favorite veggies, and bake for a delicious breakfast meal.Eggs are the base of our food pyramid. Without them, we have nothing except kale, popcorn and whatever other food that only takes 2 mins to cook. Because, while the chocolatey desserts and fancy Italian dinners are fun and all, those sure as hell are not happening daily around here.

So I eat a lot of eggs. And until my landlord lets me build that chicken coup I’ve always dreamed out, I will continue to clear out the Trader Joe’s organic egg section on a far too often basis.

It looks all fancy but it actually takes 10 mins to make (with an additional 30 mins of baking time that are perfect to make yourself look like a functioning human since breakfast potlucks mean I have to wake up before noon).

Because eggs are like that. They are so freaking simple but can morph and change themselves into so many different things that even when you throw them in a dish to bake, they still have the capacity to impress.

As always, if you make the recipe be sure to tag me (@thehealthymaven) or use the hashtag #thehealthymaven so I can see your creations! I love sharing them and seeing which ones you make. Happy egg day! It’s not egg day…I totally made that up.

    You would love having your own chickens; they are the easiest animal I’ve ever taken care of; they are so cute and fun to watch too. 🙂

    Hi! I just discovered this recipe this morning. My sister is getting married this weekend and I am hoping to make some sort of egg casserole so everyone can have some protein the morning of the wedding. Is is possible to make this casserole ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator? Thanks!

      Yes! You should be able to make it the night before and then bake in the morning. Enjoy!

    Can you use a melting cheese like cheddar or Colby in addition to some feta?
