You are going to love tho have the recipe for this Cheesy Vegetable Egg Bake over the next couple of months. It is the perfect breakfast dish to serve during the holiday season. Really, it even makes a great dinner too. I love that it is full of veggies!
The veggies make this dish look festive and is full of flavor. This dish has mushrooms, broccoli, asparagus, red bell pepper, and red onion. If there is a veggie you aren’t a fan of, just swap it out for one you do like. Or better yet, you can even swap it out for some ham, bacon, or sausage to get some meat in there if you really want to.
The other great part of this dish is the cheesy aspect. It includes 3 kids of cheeses. There is cheddar, mozzarella, and Parmesan in this. It’s the perfect trio of cheeses in this cheesy vegetable egg bake. However, feel free to change up the cheeses to your favorite. I think pepper jack or Swiss would be great options to use.
Serve it up with some toast and fruit salad for a well rounded meal. Now, I served it up with a slice of my homemade English muffin bread.Print
