Ham and Broccoli Egg Bake is such a hit in our house that we decided to try a few more egg bake combos. This cheesy cauliflower egg bake is an even bigger breakfast hit with the kids and that makes me happy. Kids eating veggies – check. Budget friendly healthy food – check. Easy homemade breakfast – check. Mom approved – check!
You can make this recipe ahead of time or the morning of. It takes about 30 minutes, including the time it takes to warm the oven up. I put a pie plate in the oven with the butter while I quickly chop up some cauliflower and onion. I also like to prep the veggies ahead of time to save a little more time. If the veggies are prepped I just put them in the oven with the unmelted butter and give them a stir before adding the cheese and eggs.
Once the cauliflower and onion are chopped, I add them to the pie plate to start cooking in the oven until it is preheated.
When the oven is preheated I pull the pie plate out, spread the cheese over top, then crack the eggs over everything.
Whisk the eggs into the vegetables and cheese and put it back in the oven for 15 minutes.
Adding veggies to eggs is not only a great way to add a serving of veggies to your kids' diets but it also helps you stretch those eggs a little farther.Click To Tweet
