Of course we love our scrambled eggs but sometimes we just want something new and different for breakfast. How about some yummy egg recipes? Egg bakes are always a hit with company, but these are both delicious and simple enough to try and enjoy anytime. Your family will be delighted!
With most egg bakes you can choose whatever meat is your favorite, and this Egg and Cheese Baked Casserole is no exception. Our second egg recipe calls for cauliflower, and I bet most of you have not used cauliflower in your breakfast recipes. It won't dissapoint! And, if there are leftovers, you can always throw together a salad, and serve for dinner too!

Cauliflower Egg Bake
Recipe from Sweet Autumn Inn, Lake Mills:
1 head of cauliflower riced (I actually buy a 12oz bag of frozen cauliflower already riced)
1 C cooked quinoa
8 slices of bacon (chopped)
10 lg eggs
1 C whole milk
2 cloves garlic (minced)
2 tsp. Paprika
Fresh ground black pepper
2 C shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 green onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
Hot sauce for serving (optional, but I use Sriracha)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Grate cauliflower head on a box grater and transfer it and the quinoa to a baking dish. (I generally use an 8 1/2" x 11" casserole dish but adjust accordingly to the amount of cauliflower. Don't over fill or it will cook over).
In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat and drain.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, garlic, and paprika. season with salt and pepper.
Top cauliflower with the cheddar, cooked bacon and green onion, pour over the egg mixture.
Bake until eggs are set and toop is golden. 35-40 minutes or until set. If using frozen cauliflower baking time may be longer.
Garnish with hot sauce and green onions.
