Last Sunday I woke up kinda late and I wasn’t in the mood for anything sweet. I found this breakfast casserole recipe on Pinterest and had been wanting to try it, and oh man was it good! I love meals that can be made with items I usually have on hand, and I’ll admit it – going to the grocery store on a sunny Sunday morning was such a painful idea.
You can find the original Recipe for Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake here, you’ll see that it’s so easy to make! I also love that you can make a massive casserole and keep the extras in the fridge for a quick breakfast during the week. It tastes exactly the same reheated. It’s yummy, simple and a time saver in the morning – perfect for a working girl like me. Plus, the combination of spinach and eggs give you extra energy to start the week!
I wanted to experiment a bit and added a layer of mushrooms and garlic to complement the spinach flavor. I didn’t have green onion available so I used brown onion instead – it tasted delicious anyway! I definitely recommend to use low-fat mozzarella to avoid some extra calories, specially if you are not a big fan of crazy workouts (like me!). If you like spicy food you can sprinkle with some hot sauce as well. There is a lot of room for additions as you can see. I’m thinking of adding in some chopped bacon next time!
Give it a try, and enjoy!!!
