Broccoli Cheddar Baked Egg Bites (Vegetarian)
These easy Broccoli Cheddar Baked Egg Bites are a healthy, high-protein breakfast recipe that you can meal-prep and freeze. Vegetarian and gluten-free!
Why You’ll Love Baked Egg Bites:
These veggie-packed baked egg bites are an easy and delicious way to add protein to your mornings.
You can meal-prep them ahead of time for a quick and easy breakfast option. I love to pair mine with a source of fibre-rich carbohydrates (like whole grain bread) and some fruit!
You can also customize them however you like. Not a fan of broccoli? You can add other vegetables like bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes and more.
Ingredients for This Recipe:
To make these easy egg bites, you only need 6 simple and wholesome ingredients.
- Whole eggs
- Cottage cheese
- Cheddar cheese
- Salt and pepper
How to Make Broccoli Cheddar Baked Egg Bites:
To make the baked egg bites, start by preheating your oven to 300F and preparing a silicone muffin tray with non-stick spray.
Next, add your eggs, cottage cheese, half of the cheddar cheese, and salt and pepper together in a blender. Blend until everything is well-combined.
Pour the egg mixture evenly into the prepared muffin tray, filling each section about half way (the egg bites will rise in the oven).
Divide the chopped broccoli and spinach evenly over the egg mixture in the muffin tray. Then sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over each.
Sprinkle with more salt and pepper (optional), then place the muffin tray in the oven and bake for 30 minutes at 300F.
Storing Baked Egg Bites:
The egg bites need to be stored in the refrigerator. I recommend storing them in a sealed container in the fridge. To do this, cool the egg bites completely, then place in a sealable container, then into the fridge. They will last up to 5 days this way.
Alternatively, you can freeze the egg bites. To freeze them, first arrange them on a baking sheet and place in the freezer for 1-2 hours or until frozen through. Then remove from the baking sheet and and place in a sealable container or freezer bag and store in the freezer up to 2 months. To reheat frozen egg bites, defrost them in the fridge overnight then warm in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.

Nutritional information is missing e.g. protein
Hi Jenese – I don’t typically include nutritional info as focusing on this can be harmful to some peoples’ relationships with food and eating. That being said, you can input the recipe into a calculator app like MyFitnessPal to see the nutrition info if you’d like. 🙂
What a gracious reply to an seemingly ungrateful comment. 🙂 Thank you for creating recipes that are convenient for people to look up with the click of a finger and use if they choose.
Hi Keiko, thanks so much for your kind words. Much appreciated. ☺️❤️
Actually, I was thinking the same thing, that nutitional info would be helpful. I have to be careful with certain ingredients in my diet. However, I appreciate your suggestion about using MyFitnessPal. And thanks for sharing the wide variety of recipes.
Hi Susan, thanks so much for your input. I will definitely consider this moving forward as I do get several comments looking for nutritional info.
I made these with a few modifications since I was trying to reduce the fat and calories slightly. I used only 5 eggs and 1 cup of egg beaters, also 2% cottage cheese and reduced fat shredded cheese. They came out delicious and I will definitely make them again! Thank you for a fantastic base recipe!
Hi Nancy, I’m so glad they turned out with your modifications. 🙂 Thanks so much for your comment!
I absolutely love these! They are delicious! I make them almost weekly for my husband and I. They are filling and a great way to start the day! Thanks for sharing!
