Normally I don’t have a problem getting up at 6am and making breakfast, but lately I just haven’t been feeling like it. I have been sick so I have been extra tired and lazy in the mornings.
But, moms don’t get sick days so I still have to suck it up and make breakfast. And as much as I would just love to throw oatmeal in the crockpot every night, I wouldn’t love the complaining from everyone telling me they’re tired of eating oatmeal every morning.
In comes an overnight egg bake! I throw everything together in a baking dish before going to bed, wrap it, and stick it in the fridge. Then in the morning I just throw it in the oven- easy!
You don’t have to do this overnight though, you can also get it all ready and bake in the morning.
The other thing, the recipe is completely tweakable. You can use pretty much whatever veggies you have on hand and you can skip the bacon or turkey if you want. It really tastes good in so many ways.
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup of unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 onion diced
- 1 tomato, diced
- 1/2 cup baby spinach, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, diced

- Whisk the eggs, almond milk, and cheese together
- Coat baking dish with pure olive oil spray
- Mix in veggies with eggs/milk/cheese mix
- Crumble the bacon and add in to the mixture

- Refrigerate until morning or cook right away

- Serve warm and enjoy!These are also really good reheated, so they’re a great option when meal prepping breakfast.
