Easy Egg Bake Recipe

June 5, 2015




It's me again, your easy recipe girl and today I have a great one to share. It's a really simple egg bake, and it's a favorite, because it tastes fabulous and it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Or all three in the same day, if you make enough for leftovers.

Now that's my kind of cooking.

In all fairness, I must confess that this recipe is really my husband's concoction. He makes it quite often, it's kind of his go to meal. It's full of protein, low in fat and yet very filling. My kids love it because it's tasty. I love it, because I am not usually the one making it.

I'd rather be glueing or sewing...or mopping. I really do not like to cook...

Ok, so what do you need? Well, that's kind of up to you. My husband's egg bake is a hodgepodge of whatever we have in the fridge, usually veggies, cheese and egg whites. It's basically an egg white quiche without the crust.


In a large bowl he combines a few handfuls of fresh spinach, 1/2 cup of cheese, 1/2 cup of chickpeas, fresh red pepper and tomatoes to taste. Of course, the vegetable variety is endless. Whatever you have on hand can be added, mushrooms, potatoes, broccoli. You get the idea.


Next, he drops in six egg whites. He's very good at the separating.


Then he mixes it well and...


...pours it into an 8 inch square pyrex dish and bakes it on 350 for about 30 minutes. Now, the beauty of this dish is that it can also be placed in the microwave for about seven teeny tiny minutes, if you're in a rush. We like it in the oven, but it's almost as good in the micro in a pinch.


That's it. That's all it takes.

For breakfast, we eat it on its own with juice and coffee, maybe a bagel if we're really hungry. For lunch, it pairs well with a salad and for dinner, I usually serve it with my mom's popcorn rice. That stuff goes with anything!

Fabulous. Dinner's done.

Now if I could just find someone to mop the floor, because, y'know, I don't really want to do that either.

Do you?

  1. Mopping the floor; blech. I tell you, I will never have 3 dogs again, even if together they weigh less than 30 lbs. LOL

    I love egg 'muffins.' eggs, breakfast meat of your choice, cheese, chopped finely veggies of your choice, bake in muffin pans. voila! Super healthy breakfast!

  2. Just got a new recipe AND Edward can make it! See, men can do domestic things! It looks really good and the photos are great!!!

    It seems there used to be a commercial for Lysol or something where the woman put cleaning pads on her high heel shoes so she wouldn't have to mop...LOL

  10. This sounds yummy. I used to like to cook but the older I get, the less I want to do it. I'd rather clean or paint something. ;) Have a great weekend.

  13. This is very different from the egg bake recipes found in the midwest. I like that it has legumes and veggies. Excited to try this. Pinned it.

  14. Looks and sounds like YUM . . .
    We enjoy something like this and call it "Special Eggs".
    Whatever veggies are around, they get mixed in . . .

  17. Looks delish, Kim. Men are usually good cooks because they don't follow a recipe and just start throwing things together. That's how Dennis cooks, and his dishes are always tasty. Since I bought a Shark to do my floors cleaning has been a breeze. I'll never go back to mopping floors again. Have a great week! xo ~ Nancy

  19. Mop? Un no. In face, yesterday is usually my mopping day, but I swept and called it good lol You'll see why when I post next :)

    Would this work with egg yolks in it too? Egg whites freak me out when they're alone. I won't even eat meringue lol

    1. Hmmm. Now I am curious! AND YES! Eggs with yolks work just fine. We used to make it like that all the time...I like egg yolks, but everyone else around here has vilified the poor things. I miss my yolks!!
