A healthy hearty breakfast idea

What's better than a one dish breakfast? This breakfast bake is loaded with fluffy eggs, cheeses and fresh veggies and spiced up with jalapeños. This is a great make-ahead recipe that can double as a lunch should there be leftovers.

A healthy hearty breakfast idea

We love breakfast bakes. In this dish we use organic eggs and whip them up with heavy whipping cream which creates a very rich dish once baked. If you prefer a dish that is less rich, opt for using half-and-half or milk. This also packs well so you can easily transport it in your lunchbox for a healthy lunch.

  • 6 organic whole eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, half-and-half or milk
  • 1 large tomato, chopped

  • 1 cup baby spinach, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
