Baked Eggs with Basil
This breakfast casserole makes a nice dish for brunch. I threw basil and pepperoni into it, but spinach, ham or tomatoes would be good as well.
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup pepperoni, sliced into strips
1/2 cup fresh basil, cut into strips
12 large eggs
1/4 tsp. salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8x8 inch baking dish with cooking spray, set aside.
In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add pepperoni and cook another minute or until fragrant. Remove from heat.
Whisk together the eggs in a large bowl. Add the onion and pepperoni mixture, basil, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared baking dish. Bake about 30 minutes, or until eggs are puffed and lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes before slicing into squares to serve.
