Welcome to My Kitchen Serenity!  Thanks for visiting my blog.  Breakfast casseroles have been around for a long time.  They’re an easy breakfast for a crowd.  Easy to make and easy to serve!  There are a ton of variations, too. 

 

Some breakfast casseroles contain hash browns or croissants.  Some contain ham, sausage, or bacon as wells as all types of vegetables. But most of them contain eggs & cheese, and these are considered the main ingredients.  A breakfast casserole can be as healthy or unhealthy as one desires.

Ingredients

Extra virgin olive oil (only needed if using fresh broccoli).
Broccoli florets – use the frozen broccoli florets that steam in the bag.
Sharp cheddar or Colby Jack cheese, shredded (I prefer sharp cheddar for this recipe).
Thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled – nitrate-free, please.
Large eggs – buy from your local farmer if possible.  Fresh farm eggs taste the best!
Heavy cream – leftover cream can be poured into an ice cube tray and frozen for later use.
Onion powder
Garlic powder
Dried thyme
Dried oregano
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, for garnish

 

Variations

Use ground sausage instead of bacon.

Add a few sliced mushrooms.

Top with a dollop of sour cream or salsa.

Some sliced jalapenos for a little kick!

 

Instructions

STEP 1: Pre-heat oven to 350°F and spray an 8” x 8” casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.

 

STEP 2: Steam the broccoli florets according to the package directions. Alternatively, you could cook fresh broccoli florets in a saute pan with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and 3 tablespoons of water; saute over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes.

 

STEP 3: Spread steamed broccoli in prepared casserole dish. Top with shredded cheese and cooked crumbled bacon and set aside.

 

STEP 4: Whisk the eggs with the heavy cream, onion powder, garlic powder, thyme, and oregano. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Pour the egg mixture over the broccoli, cheddar, and bacon and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the casserole is set and lightly golden brown on top.  Let cool 10 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
