Equipment Needed

All you need to make this egg bake is an 8×8 baking dish and a pan.

Ingredients Needed

Eggs: The eggs make up the base and bulk of this delicious egg bake. They are packed with protein and act as the binding agent that holds this bake together!

Protein: I used chicken sausage as the protein for my dairy free egg bake! Feel free to leave it out to make this egg bake vegetarian.

Potato: I like to add potato to my egg bakes. I used sweet potato here, but feel free to use red potatoes, gold potatoes, purple potatoes, hash browns or even tater tots!

Vegetables: For my vegetables, I opted for broccoli, bell peppers and onion. A hack to make this quicker is to use frozen veggies so you don’t have to chop as many! I used frozen broccoli and frozen bell peppers here.

Spices and Salt: I like to use garlic and crushed red pepper in this egg bake. I also like to use basil, which is completely optional! My favorite salt is Redmond’s Real Salt because it is high-quality and made with zero fillers. If you use my discount code LESSWITHLAUR you can get 15% off Redmond’s website

Step-By-Step Instructions

Step 1: Gather your ingredients and preheat your oven to 350°F.

Step 2: Chop your vegetables.

Step 3: In an oiled pan, sauté your vegetables and protein on medium heat until lightly browned. (If you don’t care about your meat and veggies being browned you can skip this step, but I think onion and sausages taste way better when they are browned)!

Step 4: Add all ingredients to a greased baking dish and combine.

Step 5: Bake for 45-50 minutes, or until egg bake is cooked through and lightly browned on the bottom. Enjoy!

Variations

This dairy free egg bake is super adaptable and the variations are honestly endless!

Storage

After baking the egg bake, allow it to cool completely to room temperature before storing it. Transfer the cooled egg bake to an airtight container. Refrigerated egg bake can be stored safely for up to 3-4 days. Beyond this timeframe, the texture and flavor of the dish may start to decline.

For longer storage, you can freeze the egg bake. Place the egg bake in a freezer-safe container or bag. Frozen egg bake can be stored for up to 3 months.

How to Serve

Serve the egg bake with a side of fresh fruit, such as berries, melon or grapes. This will add a touch of sweetness and balance out the savory flavors of the egg bake. You can also serve this dish with a side of toast or a green salad!

This dish can also be served as part of a breakfast spread! Pair it with pancakes or waffles, fruit, oatmeal or your favorite breakfast dishes.

Serve the egg bake with a side of hot sauce, salsa or ketchup. This will add a bit of spice! Try adding coconut yogurt or avocado on top for extra fats and creaminess.

The casserole is done when the internal temperature reaches 165°F. The top of the bake will be puffed and set, indicating that the eggs have cooked through.
