Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Casserole

Are you someone who is always on the go and finds it difficult to find time to cook a well balanced meal? Well you aren’t alone! Majority of the population lives a fast paced life and their nutrition usually takes the back burner as a result. Lucky for you I have this easy peasy breakfast recipe that takes no time at all! You pretty much throw everything in a casserole dish and let the oven do all the work. I love anything with garlic, so for this recipe I used garlic salt and garlic powder, as well as, black pepper, cayenne pepper and onion powder for my seasonings. I also forgot to purchase the green onions, but it was just as tasty without them. This item makes a great recipe to meal prep with. After I took it out of the oven, I let it cool then cut the dish into eight servings and placed them in separate containers so it would be easy to grab and go at 4:30 AM on the way to the gym. Pop it in the microwave and you’re ready to go! Partner it with your favorite fruit and you’ve got a well balanced breakfast that should hold you over until snack time. 

This is what you’ll need:

  • 5 oz. organic fresh spinach (4 cups packed)
  • 1-2 tsp. Olive oil
  • 1-1/2 cups mozzarella
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. All purpose seasoning mix
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C. Spray an 8-1/2 inch by 12 inch glass or crockery casserole dish with olive oil or nonstick spray.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add spinach all at once, and stir just until the spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer spinach to the casserole dish, spreading it around so all the bottom of the dish is covered. Layer the grated cheese and sliced onions on top of the spinach.
  • Beat the eggs with Spike Seasoning (or other seasoning mix) and salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. (I use only a tiny pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper.) Pour the egg mixture over the spinach/cheese combination, and then use a fork to gently “stir” so the eggs, spinach, and cheese are evenly combined.
  • Bake about 35 minutes or until the mixture is completely set and starting to lightly brown. Let cool about 5 minutes before cutting. (The egg bake will settle down some as it cools.) Serve hot. This is good with sour cream. I also like a little Green Tabasco Sauce sprinkled on the top.
  • This can be cut into individual servings to keep in the fridge and microwaved for a quick breakfast during the week. Don’t microwave longer than 1-2 minutes or the eggs can get slightly rubbery.
