Spinach Egg Bake

spinach egg casserole

Having breakfast for dinner is one of our favorite meals on the weekends.  I get a break from having to figure out what main coarse and side dishes I’m going to cook and just wing it.  Spinach Egg Bake let me get creative in the kitchen and use what I had in the fridge as far as veggies and cheeses are concerned. Packed full of protein and vegetables, this is one hearty breakfast, brunch or dinner!

My husband Paul said  Spinach Egg Bake was…The best egg “thing” he ever ate.  He consumed half the casserole with salsa on the side.   And he’ll eat the other half for breakfast in the morning.  The ingredients in this delicious egg bake can be switched out to what you have in your refrigerator as far as breakfast meats, vegetables and cheeses go.  Just remember to use the same  measurements in the recipe when swapping out the veggies and cheese of your choice.. Versatility, don’t we just love it!  Let’s gather the ingredients and make Breakfast Egg Bake together.
