Ham, Broccoli & Tomato Egg Bake Casserole

I love breakfast. I love breakfast for dinner. We eat it often here. This egg bake isn't one of the egg soaked bread casseroles that I see a lot of. This is a delicious egg dish packed with bright tasty vegetables and ham packed in there. 1/2 of the pan is one serving which is huge. I usually put a bit of cheese on top but I forgot this time and I didn't miss it. Actually, I thought it was prettier without the cheese on top.

Egg Bake

1 1/3 cups hash brown potatoes (6 oz.)
2 cups broccoli (4.4 oz)
4 oz. chopped ham
1/2 onion, chopped
½ red or green pepper
1 can Rotel tomatoes, drained thoroughly, press in strainer with paper towel
¼ cup 1% milk
2 tbsp. flour
1 carton egg beaters plus ½ cup
1 tsp dried basil
¼ tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. cheese

Put hashbrowns on bottom of an 8 x 8 glass baking pan. Add broccoli, onion, pepper on top of hashbrowns. Sprinkle ham and tomatoes evenly over the vegetables. Mix milk and flour, add eggs and spices. Add egg mixture to veggies. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cook at 400 for 45 – 50 minutes until egg is set. If you don't push a lot of the moisture out of the tomatoes, you'll get a lot of liquid from them.

  1. Hi Debbi! Thanks so much for the kind words, and the recipe, on my blog. I am LOVING yours. Congratulations on choosing to get healthy! It's a fabulous lifestyle and so much more fun and flavorful! Consider your blog "followed!"

  2. Thanks for linking this up, Debbi. It looks like a great breakfast dish.

  3. HI! This looks delicious! I love breakfast for dinner, too. Hubby not so much!!!

  4. Tried this over Labor day weekend, and although it was a hit, we had to improvise a lot as the 8x8 dish didnt really suffice. Also- should have been more clear in the recipe what size egg beater "carton" to buy and 2 tbsp of cheese? really? what kind of cheese? and only 2 tbsp? We improvised and just sprinkled on top. Decent recipe...a bit bland though
