Bacon Egg Cheese Bake

IMG_20130323_104410_336Weekends are made for lounging around and good breakfast. Normally we just have scrambled eggs and bacon but this weekend an egg bake sounded good. Plus you can make enough to have leftovers on Sunday.IMG_20130323_091747_308For this one I used 3 types of peppers, onion and mushrooms. I like to gather everything up and get started.IMG_20130323_093228_126First get all the ingredients chopped up.IMG_20130323_091201_693Cook the bacon. I always cook mine in the oven at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until crispy. An easy and mess free way to cook the bacon.IMG_20130323_093336_911When done remove from the oven and drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.IMG_20130323_093833_054Saute the veggies in some butter until tender but still firm.IMG_20130323_095002_248Spray a baking dish with cooking spray and layer in the veggies.IMG_20130323_094401_450Don’t forget the cheese! I grated about 2 cups of colby jack.IMG_20130323_095046_485Layer the cheese over the veggies. Next come the eggs. I used 7 eggs. Put them in a bowl and whisk together with – 2/3 cup milk, 1tsp dry mustard, salt and pepper. Since Kris and I do not eat wheat I also add 1/2 cup almond flour. This adds a fluffyness that bread normally does.IMG_20130323_103554_893Pour the egg mixture over the cheese and sprinkle the crumbled bacon on top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.IMG_20130323_104512_330I like to top my serving with salsa, for a little extra flavor. Enjoy!!
