Equipment

  • Mixing Bowls
  • 9 x 13 Ceramic Casserole Dish
  • Spatula

Ingredients

  • 1 10-ounce bag frozen “steam in bag” broccoli florets
  • 12 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ cup grated romano cheese
  • 1 ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  • While the oven is heating up, prepare the broccoli by following the directions on the bag. Drain the excess water from the broccoli and cut it into small pieces. Let the broccoli cool before adding in with the eggs.
  • As the broccoli is cooling, crack the eggs into a medium bowl and add the salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and onion powder. Whisk until the eggs and spices are blended.
  • Slowly whisk in the romano cheese. Set aside.
  • Pour the egg mixture into a 9 x 13 ceramic baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Add the broccoli and shredded cheese to the egg mixture and slowly stir just until evenly distributed.
  • Place the casserole dish into the oven and bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until the eggs are set in the middle.
  • Remove from the oven, cut into 12 pieces and serve.

Notes

Make-ahead tips
You can prepare this recipe ahead of time in a few different ways. 
Assemble the ingredients the night before in the casserole dish and cover. In the morning, remove the cover and continue with the recipe. You might need to add about 5 -7 minutes to the cooking time. 
Cook the broccoli cheese egg bake completely, cut into squares and store in the refrigerator. Warm in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until hot.
Freeze the cooked egg bake into individual servings. Individual wrap the squares in plastic wrap, place them into a labeled freezer bag and freeze. These are best when taken out to thaw overnight in the refrigerator—warm-up in the microwave.
