Ham & Veggie Egg Bake

Breakfast bakes are one of my favorite things to enjoy for breakfast.  This one was inspired by all the veggies we had in our fridge and freezer – peppers, spinach, mushrooms, broccoli … and some bread we needed to use up!

We made it as breakfast for dinner and it was filling and a nice delicious meal to come home to.  Do you like breakfast for dinner at your place? 

Ham & Veggie Egg Bake


  • 6 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 2 C fresh spinach
  • 4 oz. fresh baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 C cooked ham, diced
  • 2 C broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
  • 1 T minced onion
  • 8 eggs
  • 1/4 C milk
  • 1 tsp. parsley
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground mustard
  • Salt & pepper, a couple of shakes
  • 1/2 C shredded Colby Jack Cheese


Begin by tearing up the 6 slices of day-old bread.  Place in the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 glass baking dish. 

Toss in the 2 C fresh washed & trimmed spinach, 4 oz. sliced fresh bella mushrooms, 1 medium red bell pepper, diced and 1 T minced onion.  Add the 1 C diced ham. 

Add the broccoli florets.   

In a large bowl, mix the eggs together with 1 tsp. parsley, 1 tsp. ground mustard and 1/4 tsp. paprika.  Add in salt & pepper as desired.  Stir in the 1/4 C milk. 

Pour the egg mixture over the top of the veggies & bread in the pan. 

Cover and refrigerate overnight. 

In the morning, heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Top the casserole with cheese.

Then bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes – 1 hour, until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted. 

Serve warm.

Refrigerate leftovers and reheat them by microwaving or reheating in the toaster oven.


This was a great breakfast for dinner option for our family – filling and tasty!  You can totally customize your veggies, and there’s enough veggies in this dish that you can leave out the meat, if desired. 


  1. I bet this was just wonderful, I could eat it for lunch all week infact.

  2. I often make a frittata at the end of the week to use up leftover meat/veggies. I will have to change it up and try this recipe out soon!!

  3. We love having breakfast for dinner. We actually have omelettes every Sunday night after our evening services.

  4. This dish looks awesome. Will have to remember it for random veggies that need to be used!

    We love the breakfast for dinner thing here too. It's often what we turn to when it's late and we're ready to eat soon as omelets, pancakes, and such are pretty quick.

  5. This looks simply yummy!! Looks like even fussy little kids would love it!!

  6. I have a ton of veggies in the fridge, I should make this, this week. I haven't been sticking to my menu plan all week. Way too lazy. I could make this tomorrow and it would last for days! :-)

  7. i think this will be nice to eat any time of the day thankx lot


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
