I'm always looking for ways to get more fresh vegetables into my life and this Southwest Egg Bake is no exception. This small sort of 'crustless quiche for one' is a perfect little breakfast that's packed with flavor and also happens to be a powerhouse of super foods and nutrition.
I'm a huge believer that living well starts with eating well, and Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits make it so easy to do just that. They're not only convenient, but they're delicious and a completely versatile way to eat healthy every day. These Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits are so flexible that they can be turned into almost anything from appetizers, to side dishes, and yes... even breakfast!
To start this egg bake off I loaded it up with fresh cabbage, kale, radishes and carrots from the Southwest Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kit. I then added in an egg and some egg whites and followed it all up with crunchy corn and just the right amount of shredded cheese. Everything here, except for the egg and milk, came from the kit; making this dish super easy to toss together and have ready to bake in less than 5 minutes.
I really have had so much fun in playing around with all these different types of Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits. And honestly, I don't think that I could pick out a favorite one because I love them all for different reasons!

My brother happened to be around, so I made him one of these and he gave me the thumbs up; which is always good to know since he's sort of my personal food critic and also tends to be the recipe guinea pig. He agreed that it's reminiscent of a quiche but on a smaller and individual scale.
I left this recipe easy to double, triple, or just keep as-is for one person! What's better about this is that it's a pretty versatile recipe, so feel free to play around with other flavors of Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Salad Kits to see what you can come up with!
