This healthy asparagus mushroom swiss egg bake casserole is perfect for meal prep. Made with asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, swiss cheese, and lots of healthy protein from cottage cheese and eggs. This egg-bake breakfast casserole is so easy to make. It is low carb, high in protein, and super healthy!

Asparagus, mushrooms, and swiss cheese are a classic combination with eggs, especially in the spring. 

This version ditches the unhealthy pastry crust and focuses on lots of veggies, protein, and flavour.

You can skip the swiss cheese here, or add your preferred cheese. Goat cheese or gruyere would be excellent, but so would regular mozzarella or cheddar.

Another optional add-in would be leftover ham from Easter! 

This asparagus mushroom egg bake is high in protein with 29 grams of highly bioavailable protein, and low in carbs with only 7 grams (and 1.7 grams of fiber).

The veggies in this egg bake—spinach, mushroom, and asparagus—need to be cooked down before baking. 

Pre-cooking them will help eliminate water that can make the egg bake soggy. It’s also a good idea to drain your cottage cheese with a fine mesh strainer if it contains a lot of liquid.

After cooking down the veggies, there’s almost nothing else to it! Just layer them into your baking dish and spread the cottage cheese on top.

The cottage cheese in this recipe adds a ton of texture and protein. If you haven’t used cottage cheese in your egg bakes before, you’ll have to take a leap of faith.

Even if you aren’t a fan of cottage cheese, this addition works very well. Trust me!
