BROCCOLI BREAKFAST BAKE

Broccoli and cheese is a classic combination that tastes great in a low-carb breakfast casserole

INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups frozen tator tots
  • 2 cups (approximately) frozen broccoli
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ⅛ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1½ cups shredded Monterey / Colby Jack cheese
  • 6 oz canadian bacon, chopped
  • 6 strips of regular bacon (we used the Kirkland pre-cooked bacon from Costco to make it faster)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • ⅛ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter + 1 teaspoon for buttering your casserole dish
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat your oven to 375°.
  2. Place your frozen tator tots in the bottom of a buttered 11×7 casserole dish so they won’t stick. Sprinkle the tots with the seasoned salt and cook in the oven for 20 minutes while you are preparing, chopping and shredding the other ingredients.
  3. Meanwhile, cook your broccoli in a microwave dish with 2 tablespoons water and covered with plastic wrap. Cook for 6 minutes, or until broccoli is tender. When done cooking, remove from microwave, drain liquid and chop broccoli into pieces.
  4. Scramble your eggs with the garlic and onion powder using a whisk or hand mixer. Cook in a large skillet until eggs are done. Don’t overcook because they still have to cook in the oven for a bit too!
  5. Remove your casserole dish from the oven and layer in the following manner:
  6. 1. Tator Tots
  7. 2. Eggs
  8. 3. Broccoli
  9. 4. Canadian Bacon
  10. 5. Cheese
  11. 6. Green Onions
  12. After you assemble the casserole you’ll want to put it back in the oven to allow the cheese to melt. Keep an eye on it because you don’t want the cheese to burn. It should take just about 15 minutes until it starts to bubble and then you’ll know it’s done.
  13. While your casserole is cooking and the cheese is melting you can add your bacon to a cookie sheet and place on the bottom rack of the oven and cook until crisp, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from oven, pat the grease off with a napkin and chop the bacon for the last topping that you’ll add when your casserole comes out.
