I’m a breakfast person.  I love it.  Pretty much everything about it.  I am all about pancakes, omelets, waffles, muffins, biscuits and gravy, super amped up flavored oatmeal, bowls of fresh fruit, oh and hash browns.  I love hash browns. Oh, and donuts…. doooooonuts…..  And for all the breakfast dishes I love, not very many of them would be classified as healthy.  Come January 1, the world {including me} decides that it is time to eat heathy.

I struggled with this.  As much as I love breakfast, I really don’t love eating plain oatmeal or a bowl of flavorless cereal or most anything I think of as a “healthy” breakfast.  But since I REALLY didn’t want to give up breakfast I had to come up with something I could LOVE to eat and still be healthy.

I decided it had to be eggs.  They are perfect for a healthy breakfast because you can make them hot, or you can make them ahead of time and reheat in the morning for a quick and easy breakfast on days you need to eat and run.  So I did what I love to do.  I took my medium (this time eggs) and put my favorite flavors in it.

This simple dish made just to be healthy, became my new breakfast of choice!  I love it. Maybe even donut love.

The Spinach Pesto Egg White Casserole is so easy to throw together and de-lish-ous!  I love that you can make it ahead eat a piece, then eat it reheated the next few days.  OR this absolutely would be the perfect dish for a bridal or baby shower.  It is light in calories but filling and really makes a beautiful presentation with all of the vibrant colors in the dish.

So here’s the skinny on how to make it:

Chop up your spinach and lay it into a 9×13 casserole dish {I use this one–I love the handles!}  Put your egg whites into a bowl and whisk in the pesto.  I use prepared pesto, but if you have homemade– all the better!

Stir in half the feta, salt, and pepper to the egg mixture and then pour the mixture over the spinach.  Sprinkle the tomatoes over the top and finish with the remaining feta.

Pop it into your oven, preheated to 350˚F, and bake for 30-40 minutes or until the eggs have set.

Take that baby out of the oven, let it cool for 5-10 minutes and then slice it up and serve warm. Yum!

      Leslie I use the egg whites from the carton for this which makes it much simpler. It takes a lot of eggs to fill up a wjole casserole dish! I think a whole egg is about 1/4 cup if you choose to use them you could use all whites or a combo… I do both!

    YUM! This was delicious! The whole family enjoyed it. I plan to make it for a bridal shower brunch next month.

      Just prepare it and instead of putting it in the oven, put it in the fridge. It will take a little longer to bake if it is coming cold out of the refrigerator so make sure to allow extra time.
