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?
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.
Anytime I’m called into action for a breakfast potluck, this recipe is my go-to. 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).

How to Make Easy Veggie Egg Bake
Start by sautéing your onion in a saucepan until translucent. Add in the chopped bell pepper and cook for another minute. In a large bowl, crack the eggs and whisk well. Whisk in the milk (dairy-free milk works great if you are lactose intolerant) and then stir in the sautéed onion and bell peppers as well as the tomatoes, kale, cheese, salt and pepper. Add the egg mixture to a greased casserole pan and bake for 30 minutes.
