How to make a keto egg bake
This is a no-fuss recipe that bakes in the oven for a while, leaving you to make the rest of the meal and get everyone ready for the day ahead.
Step 1: Add the olive oil to a pan over medium heat. Once the oil has heated, add the onion, garlic, and spinach and cook for 5 minutes until the spinach has reduced. Set aside.
Step 2: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, and salt and pepper. Stir in the shredded mozzarella and feta cheese. Leave aside some of the cheese to sprinkle on top.
Step 3: Add the cooked spinach and egg mixture to an 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) casserole dish and mix well. Sprinkle over the rest of the cheese.
Step 4: Bake the keto egg bake for 40 – 50 minutes until the middle is firm and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove from the oven and allow the egg bake to cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Adding more veggies or protein
You can add in a ton of extra vegetables to this dish to make it even healthier or add more protein by including cooked meats. Here are some great vegetable and protein options to add to this dish:
- Bell peppers
- Cooked sausage
- Grilled bacon
- Crumbled tofu for a vegetarian option
- Fresh herbs
- Various cheeses work very well to enhance the taste of this egg bake.
Making it ahead of time
If you’re super busy and don’t have time to put this egg bake together in the morning, you can prepare it the day before or even make it ahead for the week.
If you want to eat the keto egg bake within 12 hours (perfect for the next morning) then assemble the egg bake but don’t bake it just yet. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Then you can pop it into the oven for 40 – 50 minutes the next morning and breakfast is served!
Storing and freezing
It’s also a breeze to prepare this egg bake ahead for the week and freeze it. It comes out perfectly done after being frozen and cooked.
To freeze your egg bake, prepare as usual but don’t bake it. Rather, cover with plastic wrap and freeze. When you want to make the egg bake, remove from the freezer and allow to thaw completely. Then bake as normal.
You can store any leftover egg bake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. It can easily be heated in the microwave or oven for a quick breakfast and lunch option.

I have been advised (by a homeopathic friend) to reduce dairy intake as it can cause inflammation. Not sure how accurate this info is. Can you make this with soy milk?
Christel Oerum says
I’m not sure if that would work as I haven’t tried and I’m not very familiar with soy milk. You could try with a smaller portion of the liquid ingredient, just to not waste too much if it doesn’t work
Shelley Cannon says
This is so very good. I also occasionally put in shitake and crimini. So tasty and easy!!
Very easy to make and everybody loved it!?
Yolanda Sconiers says
This recipe was so quick, easy to make, and perfectly delicious!
Do you think these could be made in muffin tins and then frozen?
Christel Oerum says
Yes, they probably could. That being said, I personally don’t enjoy eggs that have been frozen and reheated, as I think it changes the texture somewhat.
We loved it. Easy to make, delicious to eat. Thank you for Sharing!!!
In two words: simply delicious! Thank you for this easy , great recipe.
