Easy Vegetarian Egg Bake

Happy Halloween everyone!!  Today I have an easy vegetarian egg bake coming atcha.  I don’t know about wherever you are, but yesterday was such a cold, gloomy, grey day in Denver.  The weather originally called for snow most of the day, but it ended up really just being a steady drizzle all day.  Whenever the weather is like that, I always crave my easy vegetarian egg bake.  It makes for such a warm and nourishing breakfast!

Despite the disgusting weather, I still managed to make it to an early evening class at FIT Broadway.  It was my first time at the gym and the class was absolutely insane.  I was toast by the end.  If you are in the Denver area, FIT Broadway is under the same ownership and at the same location as Crossfit Broadway, however the FIT Program they offer is more of a boot camp style workout.  They offer a free week free or your first month for $75 if you want to check it out!  I opted in for the first month, so I’ll keep reporting back.

Now onto the recipe!  Below is the recipe for my easy vegetarian egg bake that is to die for.  I know there are about a thousand egg bake recipes floating around on the internet, but this one is amazing.  It’s packed with veggies, vitamins, protein, and healthy fats.  Not to mention it is totally delicious and vegetarian, but it is also gluten free, dairy free, and totally Paleo friendly.  This recipe can be made for a large group and eaten immediately or can make a great addition to your weekly meal prep!
