Smoked Salmon Egg Bake
I love the mix of flavors and all the veggies in this smoked salmon breakfast casserole! It’s easy enough to throw together for a breakfast that you can eat all week, but impressive enough to serve guests at a brunch party. My kind of meal!
See the video in this post for just how easy it is to make, too. The video shows another variation with bacon instead of smoked salmon!
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Casserole Ingredients
To make this recipe, you’ll need:
- smoked salmon (Of course, this can be left out to make this dish vegetarian, or you can swap it out for cooked bacon, sausage, turkey bacon, etc.)
- chopped veggies (Some of my favorites are bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, zucchini, and/or peas.)
- spinach (optional)
- feta or goat cheese
- fresh basil (For topping, but this is optional).
It’s so easy to mix and match what you already have in your vegetable drawer. That’s one of the best things about casseroles. 🙂 (And the fact that they’re comforting and tasty!)
How to Make a Breakfast Casserole
To make, first chop your veggies. Feel free to get creative with which veggies you use based on what you have on hand! A few of my faves for frittatas are: zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms, asparagus, and peas (frozen or fresh).
You can either add the veggies in raw, or quickly saute them first in a little oil with salt and pepper to soften them up.
Toss your veggies in a casserole baking dish (the one used for these photos is 11 x 7 and about an inch deep), then add some crumbled feta or goat cheese on top.
Whisk together the eggs with salt & pepper and your milk (dairy or non-dairy). Pour over your veggies + cheese. Add the chopped smoked salmon on top, or cooked bacon is great here too.
Bake at 350 for 25 – 35 minutes, or until cooked through with a golden brown crust.
I promised it was simple! Plus, if you aren’t cooking for a crowd, it makes yummy leftovers for weekday breakfasts. Meal prep for the win!
You can definitely mix & match different vegetables, cheeses, and/or herbs, or leave out the smoked salmon/bacon if you prefer. This is a great way to use up any extra veggies in your fridge!
