Veggie Garden Egg Bake

Hi Everyone,

Were almost to Friday, Woohoo!!    On Wednesday for a split second I thought it was Thursday and was so thrilled to think tomorrow was Friday, then I realized it’s only Wednesday.  I hate when that kind of thing happens, don’t you?  Then last Firday I set my alarm for 3:30 am to go to work.  It was Saturday, I don’t work Saturday, what the heck.  I was happy to realize I can go back to sleep.  My main part of my job is scheduling 6 months in advance and I try to blog in advance when there are vacations ect… so time for me does go fast, but sometimes I just mess up the days.  Ok, I see I am totally rambling.  Time for today’s recipe.

This was my first week back from Europe and I was craving vegetables.  I spent my morning eating Muesli and yogurt and lots of pastries when I was away.  So this was a wonderful treat for me to make.  It’s so full of flavor and loaded with lots and lots of vegetables.  I decided since it was so nice out I would eat my breakfast outside.

I served it with a side of berries with greek yogurt.  You know I must have my yogurt everyday.  It was a filling breakfast that kept me going all morning.  The calories for my whole breakfast including, yogurt and a cup of coffee was just at 200 calories.  Not to shabby.  I was saving my calories for my date night, which I had a fat chicken BBQ sandwich.

This was pretty quick to throw together.  All I did was saute my vegetables for about 5 minutes.  Placed the vegetables in an oven safe dish, threw in some fresh tomatoes and egg and baked it on 350 for about 35 minutes.  While that was baking I took a quick shower.  No wasting weekend time for me.  I need to get ready to go to the Farmers Market.  Here is a picture of it fresh out of the oven.  Sorry for the pink tone, it’s my bathrobe reflecting.

One thing you need to do, for sure is to spray the baking dish with cooking spray.  I forgot once and it stuck like glue.  When you spray it, it pops right out of the bowl.

After looking at this recipe today, I think I’m going to make this for my breakfast tomorrow.  I need to make something yummy, since sadly I am out of greek yogurt.  Oh the horror!

Well, time for evening clean up and I want to bounce on my Bosu Ball before I hit the sack.  Have a wonderful day and sorry for the rambling, I tend to do that a lot.

Toodles,

Jennifer

  1. This looks delicious, but do you think it’ll keep if I make a bunch on the weekends to eat as I’m walking out the door for work?

    • Hi Stephanie, I have made eggs like this in muffin pans for the work week. They last about two days. They may get a little wet on top, so I just dab it off with a paper towel. I’ll make some over the weeknd, and see how it goes next week, but I have seen egg bakes in the freezer section of the grocery store, so my guess is it will work.

      • I made this egg bake last night and had it the next morning. I have to warn you, when you microwave it, it gets watery. I just drained the water. It tastes wonderful the next day. I stored mine in an air tight container in the fridge with a paper towel over it to absorb the moisture. I think it will work for about two days, I probably wouldn’t go any longer then that. I say freeze it and see how that works.

  2. I have a bright pink bathrobe too! It’s super fuzzy :)

  3. I hate that feeling when you realize that you are a day behind what you think it should be! Eating this would probably help me feel better about it, though! ;)

  4. Can I just say how jealous I am that you have a POOL?? I’m coming over.

  5. This looks delicious! I am going to try this one day this week, as I’ve been eating overnight oats every morning for the past few days. Think I may throw some artichoke hearts in there as well :)

  6. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I found your site through a link for another recipe on Tumblr. This recipe is so versatile in what you can add to it. The possibilities are endless :) I look forward to making more of your recipes!
