Easy Egg Bake
Thought this simple recipe was fitting for this time of year…
I like to make this on Sunday, and then cut it into smaller portions to refrigerate or freeze for weekday breakfasts.
My family also usually eats this as one of our brunch dishes on Christmas morning! It’s an easy dish to take, if you’re not hosting!
If you’re looking for a tasty option, that is a little healthier… this recipe tends to save you some calories, fat, and carbs (compared to the average egg casserole), and it also tends to have more protein!
EASY EGG BAKE
1. 1 1/2 dozen eggs
2. 1C milk (I use 1%)
3. 1C sour cream (I use light sour cream)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix eggs, milk, and sour cream, in a bowl.
3. Pour egg mixture into baking dish (13x9).
4. Toss in desired add-ins *I add chopped peppers, turkey sausage crumbles, and shredded cheddar cheese.
5. Bake for 35 minutes.
