Looking for a super simple breakfast to feed a crowd? This Easy Veggie Egg Bake is perfect for your next breakfast potluck or brunch date. 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).

Ingredients in Easy Veggie Egg Bake

The ingredient list is full of pantry staples so you can whip this up for a quick and simpel breakfast!

  • eggs
  • onion
  • bell pepper
  • cherry tomatoes
  • kale
  • cheese (optional)
  • milk
  • salt and pepper

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.

    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?

    On a scale of 1 to 10… how easy would this be to make in a cup cake pan (so they are little and individualized)? I’m throwing a bridal shower for my best friend and would like to limit the amount of time people spend getting food (cup cake sized casserole seems easier…).

    Can the milk be simply omitted as well? I don’t typically purchase milk or milk substitutes, and would prefer to just leave it out completely. Not sure if that will affect the consistency of the dish though?

    I didn’t have a casserole pan handy so I made this in a muffin pan. I used a ladle to fill each tin and one ladle full of the filling filled each tin perfectly. I also omitted the milk because mine had gone bad, so I used about half a cup of plain yogurt instead and it came out very well. I cooked for about 20 minutes and let them finish sitting on the counter. Delicious and perfect for a quick breakfast!

    You are literally the first food blogger EVER whose content is so engaging and awesome that I actually read the preface to the recipe. Wow. Mega Wow! Like… I can feel my whole world shifting. Maybe I’m going to sign up for your newsletter just because you’re funny and a voice I’d love in my inbox. And maybe it will inspire me to start cooking more often than once every six weeks?! So happy to meet you, kindred spirit 🙂

    This recipe inspired me to use up the veggies in the fridge and have an easy go-to breakfast for the week. It turned out great – with a few modifications. I didn’t have feta so I used a sharp cheddar which provided a nice tang. I also added some basil as a flavor boost. I baked it in a 9×13 pan which was a good fit since the egg bake puffs up a lot during baking. Thanks for a great recipe.
