Ham and Egg Bake with Broccoli

on January 7, 2013

Last week I got a nice big ham and slow roasted it in the oven. While I was sitting around trying to figure out what to cook for dinner I had an idea to use some of the ham up and create a tasty low carb meal. This is basically a crustless quiche and easy to make.


2 cups diced ham

8 oz shredded cheddar cheese

16 oz frozen broccoli (steamed to thaw and then pressed between paper towels to remove extra water)

6 oz sliced mushrooms

1/4 cup finely minced onion

7 eggs

1/4 cup heavy cream

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish.

Mix together the mushrooms, onions and ham. Spread this mixture in the bottom of the baking dish. Spread the broccoli evenly over the ham mixture. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.

Mix the eggs, cream and parmesan cheese in a bowl and pour evenly over the broccoli and ham. It will NOT cover the mixture entirely.

Bake for about 45 minutes until the eggs puff up and set.

This turned out really good. I didn’t add any salt because the ham is salty enough but I did grind a little extra black pepper over it. Otherwise, I didn’t add any extra seasoning. 🙂
