This Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake is one of my favorite recipes for breakfast.
It doesn’t take a lot of time to make, with only 3 main ingredients, and isn’t too bad for you health-wise! For all you low-carb friends, this is the perfect breakfast.
Nowadays, when I look for a breakfast item, it needs to be high in protein, and eggs are one of the cheapest protein sources for breakfast.
One egg has about 6 grams of protein, so this recipe packs a huge protein punch.
This egg casserole is also super easy to meal prep so you have breakfast to eat the entire week. It’s really good the next day, heated in the microwave or the oven.
Is this your first time doing meal prep? Don’t be intimidated- I have a whole guide on meal prep for beginners!
How do you Make Spinach Mozzarella Egg Bake?
This great recipe only contains a few ingredients:
- Olive oil
- Fresh spinach (Frozen spinach might work, but you’ll need to squeeze out excess moisture first)
- Mozzarella cheese
- Garlic powder (Onion powder would work well too)
Add olive oil to a large skillet and saute the spinach on medium-high heat until mostly wilted.
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and garlic powder powder.
Add the spinach and mozzarella cheese, and stir to combine.
Pour the egg mixture in a greased 9×13 casserole dish, stirring gently to make sure everything is laid out evenly.
Place in the preheated oven. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes until the eggs are fully cooked and a knife in the center of the casserole comes out clean.
Let it cool slightly, then cut into 4-6 individual servings. You can eat it right away or store in the fridge, after it’s cooled to room temperature, for the next morning.
What can you eat with this?
Some people like to add sour cream on top for extra fat. Sometimes even a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
If you’d like to add some carbs to this, have an English muffin or some toast. Fresh fruit would go nicely, as well!
Can you use egg whites instead?
I haven’t tried it, but I’m sure it would work. Keep in mind that the egg yolks have plenty of healthy fat- so make sure you get your fat source elsewhere.
What substitutions can I make?
What I love about this recipe is how easy it is to add or change ingredients. Here are some examples:
- Instead of mozzarella cheese, you can use feta cheese or even shredded Parmesan.
- Add some lean meat like turkey sausage for even more protein!
- Add other seasonings: Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, fresh herbs, black pepper, whatever you like.
- Cook a yellow onion with the spinach mixture, or add green onions to the casserole dish before baking.
