Veggie Egg Bake

This is hands down my favorite make-ahead breakfasts, I make a huge batch and freeze into individual portions so I can have a quick and delicious meal after getting my booty kicked at Burn Boot Camp! This would be great to have for a holiday brunch or breakfast, the other habitents of Casa de Campbell are freaks and don't like eggs.

Veggie Egg Bake
Adapated from Cozy Country Living

1 (30 oz.) bag Shredded Hashs, thawed completely
1 (14 oz.) bag broccoli florets, thawed completely and chopped
3 large red peppers, chopped small

2 large onions, chopped small
16 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 bag baby spinach
1 clove of garlic, minced
8 oz sliced pepperjack cheese
1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese=
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
15 eggs
3/4 cup 2 % fat or higher milk
3/4 cups sour cream
1 Tbsp. dried chives
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
Pinch Cayenne

1.    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2.   Saute the red pepper, mushrooms, onion and garlic in olive oik until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Wilt the spinach
3.   Set aside.
4.   In an extra large mixing bowl, combine the potatoes, salt, pepper, cayenne, and cheddar cheese
5.   Split the potato mixture between two baking dishes, I use an 8x11 and 11x15
6.   Top the potato layer with the veggies you sauted and the thawed broccoli
7.   Top with slices of pepperjack, split between the two dishes
8.   In the same mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, sour cream, chives and salt and pepper.
9.   Pour the egg mixture evenly over the casserole.
10.  Bake covered with foil loosely for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for another 30-35 minutes until the casserole is browned around the edges and the casserole does not appear to be runny. *Cooking time will vary depending on the size and shape casserole dish you use. I love to use a pretty round dish for special occasions, but it makes the casserole thicker- sometimes requiring at least 20 more minutes of cooking time, so use your judgement.
11.   Remove from the oven and let cool and set for 10 minutes before serving.

1.    Slice into squares or rectangles, I usually get about 15
2.   Wrap each slice in cling wrap tightly
3.   Place into a large freezer bag and label
1.    Spray a baking pan with non-stick spray
2.   Place into oven and set to 400

3.   Usually takes about 10 minutes
