Broccoli, Ham, and Mozzarella Baked with Eggs
- 4-6 cups very small broccoli flowerets, blanched about 2 minutes, then drained well.
- 1-2 cups diced ham (1/2 - 1 lb.)
- 1 cup low-fat grated Mozzarella
- 1/3 cup thinly sliced green onion (optional, but good)
- 8-10 eggs, well beaten
- Spike Seasoning (or other all-purpose seasoning blend) to taste (I use about 1 tsp.)
- fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
- low-fat sour cream, for serving (optional)

Heat oven to 375F/190C. Spray a 9"x 12" casserole dish with non-stick spray. (The dish can be slightly smaller too, especially if you use the smaller amounts of ingredients.)
Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil and cook the broccoli just 2 minutes; then pour into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well. Dice the ham while the broccoli drains.
Layer broccoli, ham, Mozzarella, and green onions (if using) in casserole dish. Season with Spike Seasoning and fresh-ground black pepper and pour beaten egg over. Use a fork to "stir" the mixture just until all the ingredients are coated with egg. (It might look like there is not enough egg, but carry on!)
Bake 35-45 minutes, or until all the mixture is set and the top is starting to lightly brown. (If you use the higher amount of eggs, it will take the longer baking time, but start to check after about 30 minutes.) Serve hot, with low-fat sour cream if desired. This can be kept in the fridge for at least a week and reheated in the microwave.
