I love having breakfast ready for the week ahead. It makes the mornings a bit easier when you have something to easily pull out of the fridge. I love this Healthy Breakfast Egg Bake because there are a lot of ways that you can switch it up, based off what you like! You can load it up with more veggies or keep it a little simpler. I do recommend keeping in the breakfast sausage as I feel it adds a lot more flavor to something like this. Let’s be honest, these can get a little boring after a while but this combo is one that you’ll look forward to in the morning!

Can I use any sausage?
Yes! Any breakfast sausage will work here. I love the flavors of the Sweet Italian Breakfast Sausage from Butcher Box that I used here. Any flavors will work great here and adds a lot of flavor to this simple breakfast.
Can I switch up the veggies in this?
Yes! There are so many ways to switch this up to either add more veggies or use what you have on hand. I’ve added spinach before but you can also do onions!
Best way to reheat your egg bake:
If prepping this to have for breakfast during the week, I recommend keeping it in a sealed container to keep in the fridge. When you’re ready to reheat, place in the microwave for 50 seconds to a minute to heat up. Top with fresh avocado!
