My Breakfast Bake

This is the one thing that I can count on to help me lose weight.  It is the only way that I consume something green before noon and it's fast.  I make it on Sunday's and I have a piece every morning during the week.  Over the last month I've done some experimentation on the pan size that is ideal and I have to say that the Prex 11 cup rectangle is the best.  It's great because it's really deep but still fits within a toaster oven/convection oven.  

What you need:

1 bag of frozen broccoli (I use the steam in bags)
1/2 cup of cheese
12-18 eggs (depending on how many people/days you're making for)
Pam cooking spray
3Tbs bread crumbs

What you do:
Spray the pan and coat the bottom with your bread crumbs.

Pour the broccoli in the pan with the breadcrumbs

Sprinkle Cheese on Top

Beat eggs (I use 18 eggs - 12 whole and 6 just whites and it makes 8 servings)
Pour eggs on top of broccoli and cheese

Bake at 425F for 30 minutes in a toaster oven on "Bake" not convection - if you're using a real oven turn the temp down to 375 and bake for 40-45 minutes.

The toaster oven heats up faster and because you're filling the oven with the dish you get a much fluffier and faster cooking Breakfast Bake.  If I have leftover spinach, tomato, onion or ham I'll throw that in too.  It's a good way to kill any leftovers from Friday or Saturday's dinner.
See how the egg cooks into the broccoli making it like a FOSSIL. Okay, I'm watching too much Bones.
