One-Pan Egg and Vegetable Breakfast

One-Pan Egg and Vegetable Breakfast

Not everyone needs a hearty breakfast to start their day, but if you do, or if you’re looking for a healthy option to bring to your next breakfast pot-luck, this casserole works as a fantastic option. We especially love this casserole due to the ease of cooking – while the ingredients list here might seem a little intimidating, the preparation for this is as simple as combining and cooking. This dish will take some time to bake, so plan on waking up a bit earlier to get things started – or, save yourself some time by prepping your veggie ingredients with a food processor the night before and keeping covered in the refrigerator until you’re ready for baking.

One of the best attributes of this dish is its versatility – although the ingredients here reflect what we think are some of the tastiest parts of a breakfast casserole, you are free to adjust as needed! Some great variations on this include: omitting the sausage for a vegetarian-friendly dish; adding chili peppers and serving topped with avocado slices; or, using shredded veggies versus diced (and adjusting bake time down a bit) for a neat texture change.

This one-dish casserole is wonderful as a standalone main course for any meal of the day. However, if you are looking for additional dishes to serve alongside this, especially if you are planning a fancier brunch, consider adding a serving of these hazelnut pancakes and whipping up a bowl of this yummy fruit salad for an altogether impressive meal.
