Chicken + Leek Egg Bake

Eggs have been a staple of my breakfasts for as long as I can remember. They are easy, filling, and can be served in a lot of different ways, making them extra versatile. I like them fried, scrambled, and served in the form of an omelette. But one of my absolute favorite ways to make them is in the form of an egg bake.

An egg bake is kind of like an egg casserole or quiche without the cheese. It could also be mistaken for a frittata, but it doesn’t have any potatoes in it (though they would be delicious if you can tolerate them!). What I like best about egg bakes is that they make for the perfect brinner dish or as the main when you’re having friends over for breakfast / brunch (do people still do that?!) because everyone gets to eat warm eggs at the same time. Egg bakes like this are also great for people who do meal prepping for the week since you’ll have 6 decent sized portions.

The original idea came from Dr. Monica Bravo’s site (formally known as Bravo For Paleo) and has been adapted over the years to fit my dietary needs. The base of the egg bake is simple: 10 eggs + 1/3 cup milk + whatever fixings you like. To keep is low salicylate and FAILSAFE friendly, I went with shredded chicken, sautéed leeks and celery, and a little celtic sea salt.

The hubs said that this was one of his favorite combinations yet. Which says a lot, since he’s had every variation I’ve ever thrown at him and enjoyed them all.
