Green egg casserole. I guess you could call it quiche, but then your kids would be all “EWWW that sounds gross! What’s quiche?” And your husband may pull that “I’m too manly for quiche” shit. So just call it green egg casserole and make them think you’re fun. Or something.
This comes together suuuuuuper quick and can be adapted to suit your tastes. If you have frozen veggies, use those (just thaw first and make sure to get some of the excess water out). If you don’t have a tube of crescent roll sheet, use the regular ones and just push the seams together in the pan.
Green egg casserole is a great way to use up veggies that need to be used, while making a super delicious and healthy dinner for your family.
Green Egg Casserole
- 1 tube crescent roll dough
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 2 crowns broccoli, finely chopped
- 5 oz chopped spinach, from frozen: thawed and squeezed of excess water
- 1 c. cheese of choice (I like a mix of cheddar and swiss)
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Coat a 9″x13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray and roll out crescent dough. If using a sheet, just roll and pull up the sides as much as you can without tearing; if using a roll of individual rolls, gently press them together to form a sheet in the pan and then push up the sides as much as you can.
Finely chop the two crowns of broccoli (Chopping finely eliminates the need to cook first and you end up with a better texture, no mush product). Thaw frozen spinach in microwave and make sure (VERY IMPORTANT) to squeeze out extra water. I like to give it another good chop as well, once squeezed.
Beat 8 eggs with 1 cup of milk. Season to taste with salt and pepper (I mean, use your imagination, don’t actually taste it). Add the cheese and veggies and mix well. Pour into crescent roll lined backing dish and top with foil.
Bake for 25 minutes, uncover and bake an additional 10-15 minutes
That’s it! Quick, CHEAP, tasty, and super easy. This recipe is easily modifiable by any veggie or meat you have on hand. We decided to go full green for the novelty effect as a way to get our girls to gobble up some green goodness. It totally worked! Hope you enjoy.
