During the holidays it’s nice to have something nutritious for breakfast already prepared and ready to go, so that more time can be spent watching your loved ones tear through the wrapping paper, opening gifts, and partaking in other joyous celebrations.
This is my mom’s egg bake recipe that she serves every Christmas morning. It is so easy that you’ll want to have it in your fridge for a quick grab-and-go breakfast solution all year around.
Egg Bake Recipe:
12 organic eggs
1/2 cup 2% organic milk
1 bag (8oz) reduced fat shredded organic cheddar cheese
1 cup fresh organic spinach- (remove stems)
1/2 cup small ham cubes or crumbled cooked sausage -optional
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix together in large bowl the eggs, milk, shredded cheese, fresh spinach and ham cubes or sausage. Pour mixture into a 9 x13 glass Pyrex dish that’s been lightly sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for at least 40 minutes.
In a study conducted at Penn State University, there are “nutritional advantages of raising hens on pasture as compared to on an industry diet in cages: the increases in omega-3 fatty acids and in vitamins A and E. [The study] also found that differences in omega-3 levels in plants have an effect on the eggs.” Vitamins A and E are cancer-fighting antioxidants, and omega-3s support healthy heart and brain function.
