Hey, y'all!  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I am not a breakfast person. Like, who really has time to get up before the butt-crack of dawn to make breakfast?  Not this girl. That being said, I'm trying really hard to be a breakfast person, at least on the weekends.  Over the last couple of months, I've been playing around with different breakfast recipes that take very little time to throw together and turn out flawless each time.  Recipes like Snatch 'Em Up Omelets, Cheesy Ham, Broccoli, and Egg Bubble Bake and overnight oats have made breakfast actually happen in my household.

 

Ladies and gents, I found another winner.   This is delicious easy egg bake is the perfect low-carb, keto friendly, and grain and gluten-free!  It requires very little prep and can be made in advance for a quick and simple breakfast for busy mornings.  

 

 Isn't it a beaut?

 

This recipe was inspired by my Crazy Simple Egg Bake in fact... I basically just took that recipe and added things into it.  I began with a bag of steam-in-a-bag broccoli.  I popped it into the oven and prepared it according to the packaging instructions.  Next, I placed the cooked broccoli into the bottom of a greased pan, poured a scrumptious egg mixture on top, loaded it up with some cheese and baked it in the oven for about 30 minutes.

 

 

 

You could easily pop this into the oven as soon as you wake up and it'll be ready by the time you're done getting ready.  Even better, you can make this in advance and heat it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds in the morning.  It tastes just as good!  I promise!  In fact, I reheated some this morning and had it for breakfast.  It also tastes wonderful cold, if you can get into cold eggs.

This casserole is absolutely fabulous!  It is a great way to add a bit of freshness to your morning!
