Egg Bake with Ham and Spinach | Good Cheap Eats

Breakfast foods are some of my family’s favorites, particularly egg dishes. Eggs are affordable, packed with protein, and are good stick-to-yer ribs food.

Some days, I just fry or scramble a bunch, but when I don’t feel like being a short order cook or having to come up with side dishes, I like to whip up an egg casserole. Quiches, frittatas, or the ever-American egg bake are great ways to prepare eggs for a crowd.

This Ham and Spinach Egg Bake is a big hit at our house. It comes together in minutes and is packed with protein. Not to mention, it will make you strong like Popeye.

This dish is naturally gluten-free, and the swiss cheese is optional, so you can easily make it dairy-free, paleo, whole30 if that’s your desire. I love the warm little kick that the dish gets from the Cajun Spice Blend. Feel free to add more if your people can handle it.

If you’d like to make this in advance or to freeze, please be sure to cool the onions completely before adding the egg mixture. Once assembled, just wrap and either refrigerate or freeze. Thaw overnight in the fridge or add about 10-15 minutes to the baking time if baking from frozen.

I find that having the right tools on hand makes cooking super quick and efficient.

  1. Oh, I may add this to my weekend breakfast preparations next week! I just wrote a post about how I am making breakfast a more successful priority!

    I think me and mine must enjoy egg dishes almost as much as you do. We very much enjoyed the Crustless Potato-Leek Quiche from your most recent cookbook. It was surprisingly flavorful to have so few ingredients. I will definitely be making that again.

    I’m not a meat-eater, but this dish is just as YUM without the ham 🙂

    Egg Bake w/Ham & Spinach: Best egg dish ever (don’t over bake, just until barely set). I used leftover ham that had the sugar/maple glaze on it. Maybe the secret ingredient that required a little longer in the oven? However, husband said “now that is a keeper. don’t change a thing, I could eat this every day!” I thought it was very good too; but I lack cooking talent; we mostly just eat my meals because it’s food (or used to be) so we eat it. Wow, I made an enjoyable meal.
    I did cut the recipe down, (just 2 of us, and I didn’t want to chance leftovers to waste/trash).
    After he finished off the of the casserole, he asked, “when can we have this again?” ……….. So easy, and we loved it. (I had to sub: Provolone cheese (for Swiss), fresh steamed spinach (for frozen) and Creole (for Cajun) seasoning, & used the ‘glazed brn.sugar/ maple’ ham. But, the eggs(used 6 w/a splash of evap. milk) and onions there.(LOL) (Note: My sub’s are the usual reason for a recipe “FAIL” . It was amazing (and a first) my sub’s didn’t cause a poor result. with this one. It was yummy!
    What made this recipe so yummy? Don’t care: I always have eggs, and still have a grundle of frozen leftover ham.

    • YAY! Congratulations. You do have cooking talent. You made it and he loved it. Boom. High five, sister!

    • There’s ham in the egg bake and grapefruit in a dish in the photo. Hope that helps
