Cream Cheese Easy Egg Bake – Low Carb, Keto, THM S
You can make a few different flavors at once as I did for brunch last Sunday. You put the meat and/or veggies in the bottom of a greased dish, sprinkle on cheese and seasonings, pour on the egg mixture. Done. It comes out perfectly every time.
Why cream cheese in an egg bake?
Cream cheese turns this from a dense baked egg into a lighter and fluffier egg dish more similar in texture to a souffle.

How to tell if the breakfast casserole is done
My breakfast casserole toppings were:
Caramelized Onions, Spinach, Mushrooms, 4 Cheese, and Bacon:
Cook 1 onion in a frying pan sprayed with cooking spray until soft and golden. Add 5 large sliced mushrooms. Cook until softened. Add a large handful of spinach. Put in the bottom of a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/2-1 cup shredded cheese on top (I used a pre-shredded mixed blend) and crumbled bacon (I used 8 slices). Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. dried basil and 1/2 tsp. dried garlic over the cheese. Pour egg on top. Bake for 30 min or until the egg isn’t jiggly and the edges are golden brown.
Ham and Cheddar:
Put about 1 cup diced ham in the bottom of a sprayed baking dish. Sprinkle on 1/2-1 cup shredded cheddar, 1 tsp driec minced onion, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, and 1/4 tsp dried minced garlic. Pour egg on top. Bake for 30 min or until the egg isn’t jiggly and the edges are golden brown.
