I have combined Southwest flavors with the warmth of a hearty meal for this breakfast recipe. It is ideal for a memorable brunch. So whether you’re feeding a large group or trying to calm hectic weekday mornings, this healthy breakfast casserole recipe is perfect.
Breakfast casseroles have sausage and potatoes. Instead, we stuffed this recipe full of fresh vegetables and greens, including spinach, red bell pepper, and green onion. A creamy goat cheese or feta cheese completes the dish. You don’t need a lot of dairy to get a wonderful, creamy texture. It is a lighter dish that appears more decadent than it is.

Let’s see the ingredients and steps to prepare this recipe.
List of Ingredients
Below are some ingredients you’ll need for this recipe –
- Extra-virgin olive oil – 1 tablespoon
- Chopped red bell peppers – 2 medium-sized (about 2 cups)
- Finely sliced green onions – 3/4 cup
- Roughly chopped spinach – 5 ounces (about 5 cups)
- Eggs – 12
- Full-fat dairy (heavy cream, whole milk, half-and-half, yogurt, or sour cream) – 3 tablespoons
- A few dashes of your preferred hot sauce, such as Cholula
- Fine salt – 1/2 teaspoon
- Freshly powdered black pepper – ten twists
- Goat cheese or crumbled feta – 4 ounces (1 cup)
Let’s see the instructions step-by-step.
Set the oven’s temperature to 350°F. Avoid using cooking spray; it doesn’t work nearly as well. Instead, use butter to coat a nine-by-13-inch cooking pan.
Heat the olive oil in a big skillet over moderate heat until it shimmers. Add the green onions and bell pepper and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the bell pepper is soft and cooked.
For about two minutes, constantly stirring, saute the spinach in the skillet until it has wilted. Keep the pan to the side and let it cool for a few minutes; prepare the egg.
In a small mixing bowl, crack the eggs. Add salt, pepper, your preferred dairy, and a few dashes of spicy sauce. Whisk the mixture until the egg whites and yolks are smoothly blended.
Add half the cheese, and save the other half to top the frittata before baking. Place the lightly cooled vegetables in the bowl and stir to mix.
Fill the prepared pan with the mixture. Then, spread the remaining cheese evenly across the top.
Bake for about 25-35 minutes (watch it closely) until the eggs are puffy and seem cooked. And the frittata just slightly jiggles from the center when gently shaking it. To be safe, insert a fork around 1/4 inch deep into the middle of the eggs, and make sure it comes out clean.
Once you are ready to serve, set the prepared frittata on a wire rack to cool. Use a sharp knife to slice, and then serve. You can store the leftovers in the refrigerator for about four days. Then, reheat leftovers gently in the oven or microwave, or enjoy them chilled at room temperature.
