Phase 3 Egg Casserole

Egg casseroles are a great breakfast on the go.  They can be baked ahead of time, and refrigerated for up to a week or frozen.  They reheat quickly in the microwave.  They can be made with a variety of ingredients.  Anything that is desired, really.

This particular bake is vegetarian as my son's GF doesn't eat meat of any kind.  If you want to add crumbled bacon or sausage, or ham, it works fine too.

Egg Casserole
24 large eggs (for a 15 x 10 baking dish), use 18 eggs for a 9 x 12, and 12 to 15 eggs for an 8 x 8, adjust other portions accordingly
6 tbsp heavy whipping cream
1 large onion, diced
2 bell peppers, diced
1 to 2 cups mushrooms, diced
2 tbsp butter
12 oz grated cheese (I used cheddar)
Pepper to taste

Set oven to 375 degreesF.  Grease baking dish.  Saute veggies in butter until almost soft. Cool the mixture.  Mix eggs and whipping cream well.  Add everything together in baking dish.  Bake for 30 to 45 minutes until eggs are well set and top is browned.  (makes 8 three egg servings or 12 two egg servings)  167 calories for each egg serving.  12 g Fat, 2 g Carb, 9 g protein, 170 g sodium


  1. Yum! That looks really delicious. I love egg casseroles. Beth, I started my hcg journey on April 6 and am down 29 lbs-- with 54 to go! I found your blog via the hcg forum and have been so grateful for the many tips and inspirations you have shared in both places. Thank you so much! You have answered so many questions I had, and given me much peace of mind. I hope your mother's day was full of blessings. :)

  2. you've done fantastic! Glad you like the blog

  3. This was a grand success- I made it a few days ago- not only have I enjoyed it, but the rest of those in my house who are not even connected with HCG LOVE IT!!!- It is definitely a winner. I added ham and left out the mushrooms just because of others in the house who prefer this combo better. I'm going to make it again with some other variations.
