Ingredients

  • 8 eggs
  • 1 cup (4oz.) Grass-fed cheese
  • 1 cup Coconut cream from can
  • 1 cups Dairy-free milk
  • 4 slices (4oz.) Uncured bacon
  • 1 Leek, white parts only, sliced lengthwise, then in 1-inch pieces
  • 4-5 cups broccoli
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Cook bacon in large frying pan.
  3. While bacon is cooking, slice leek.
  4. Add broccoli to a food processor and pulse until it's completely broken up. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your food processor.
  5. Shred cheese.
  6. When bacon is finished, place aside on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the grease. Add leeks to the hot pan with bacon grease and cook until softened.
  7. In the meantime, add the eggs, cream, dairy-free milk, salt, and pepper to a big bowel. Use a hand mixer to blend for a minute.
  8. Prepare a plate lined with paper towels. Scoop leeks out of pan and place on plate. Blot with paper towels to absorb excess grease.
  9. Once bacon is cooled, chop into bits.
  10. In a round casserole dish (at least 9" diameter), pour a drizzle of olive oil. Use wax paper to evenly cook the bottom and sides of the dish.
  11. Layer the dry ingredients starting with cheese, then 1/3 of the broccoli, 1/3 of the bacon, 1/3 of the leeks, and repeat until all ingredients are added. Pour egg mixture over the entire dish evenly.
  12. Place on baking sheet and insert into oven on the middle rack.
  13. Set timer for 50 minutes. It should be done between 50-60 minutes.

Notes

Dairy-free & Paleo: Skip the cheese or use a dairy-free cheese instead. Low FODMAP: Use greens of a scallion instead of the leeks. Skip the cheese (or use a low-lactose cheese instead). You may want to opt to skip the coconut cream and use 2 cups of the dairy-free milk instead.

Eat this with your favorite fruit or breakfast potatoes on the side.
