Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Casserole
- Start by preheating your oven to 375° and spraying your 9×9" baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- While the oven is preheating add your eggs and egg whites to a large bowl and whisk together until the yolks of the eggs are evenly incorporated.
- Then season your eggs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
- Add your torn spinach and mozzarella cheese to your egg mixture, and stir together. Then pour your eggs into your baking dish. Using a spoon or fork gently push your spinach down into your egg mixture so it is mostly covered with egg.
- Now arrange your sliced tomatoes and onions on top of your casserole and season with another sprinkle of salt and pepper.
- Bake at 375° for about 40-50 minutes (depending on the size of your baking dish). Until the egg has fluffed up in your baking dish. This will start around the sides and slowly work its way to the middle. If you edges of your casserole begin to get too brown before the center has risen you can cover the casserole with tin foil to prevent burning the edges. Your casserole is going to fluff up like a souffle but will settle within minutes of taking it out of the oven.
- You will know if your casserole is undercooked if when you pull it out of the oven and tilt it slightly and you see a wave-like motion in the center of the casserole. That would be the wet uncooked eggs moving around under the surface. Your casserole is done when the center has fluffed up, however, the center might not rise as much as the edges of the casserole.
