I don’t even know what to name this. Big Ass Breakfast Casserole? I winged it and it was a success. I normally take the time to make my breakfast every morning to take with me to work but really needed to shave down my get-ready-for-work time so decided to multiply my usual breakfast by 5 (for every work day this week) and bake it. Pictured is just one of the pans I made.
To make a Big ass casserole:
You should have bacon pre-made before starting this. Oil spray however many baking dishes you plan to use. From a few trial and errors, I would suggest using a fairly deeper dish. Preheat oven to 350°. Then, in the following order, begin to add your ingredients:
- Raw spinach
- Cooked bacon in pieces
- Nature Harvest Light Multigrain bread pieces
- Mix all of the above
- Pour egg white all over until it nearly covers your previous ingredients
- Sprinkle Trader Joe’s Lite Shredded Mozzarella
Macros per serving (280g): 7f 15c 38p (6g fiber)
Tip: I have a restaurant grade kitchen scale for the really heavy things so this is how I measured as I went, but if you don’t have that, you can just weigh ingredients separately as you go.
Verdict? It was delicious but the macro ratios are not to where I want them yet. Protein is too high in comparison to carbs. For my next casserole attempt I think I will add a fluffing agent to make the egg white rise more, therefore, meaning I can add more carb ingredients. Ultimately this would be perfect poverty macros, but I am currently with decent macros to work with, so it’s not a concern.
