Description

This make ahead healthy breakfast casserole is flavorful, cheesy, packed with protein and much lighter than traditional breakfast casseroles. Perfect for brunch and serving a crowd!


Ingredients

  • 10 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk
  • 12 cups fresh broccoli, chopped into bite-size florets
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 slices of gluten-free bread, chopped into cubes*

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients except bread in a large bowl. Toss to combine
  2. Add bread cubes into a lightly greased 9×13 rectangular baking dish.
  3. Pour the egg mixture over the bread cubes. Cover, and refrigerate at least 1-2 hours or overnight.
  4. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°.
  5. Bake about 50 minutes, or until the middle of the casserole is no longer jiggly and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.

Notes

Lightly adapted from this Easy Sausage Strata.

*Feel free to use your favorite bread. If you do go with regular bread, you can probably do 4-5 slices instead of six. I’ve found that gluten-free slices are smaller than traditional slices.
