This vegetable breakfast tart is a filling, protein-filled breakfast at home or on the go!
This particular recipe is one I ran across years ago! Apparently, I developed the recipe and then forgot to publish the darn thing. I made it for Easter brunch and it went over really well.
The nice thing about it is that it’s crustless, so naturally lower in carbs, but it still has great flavor. But you can certainly use crust if you prefer. I have two go-to recipes for pie crust.
I remember I had a small number of leftovers the next day that I used in a sandwich. I put the tart between two pieces of bread with a little homemade mayo and some tomato slices. It was delicious and a great way to use up the leftovers!
What To Serve With This Vegetable Breakfast Tart
- A side of oven-roasted potatoes
- Homemade hash browns
- A slice of toast and coffee
- Slice this square and put a slice between two slices of bread for breakfast on the go.
You can mix in any of the following:
- Different cheeses such as ricotta, feta, parmesan cheese, or even pepper jack.
- Try some chopped zucchini, eggplant, peas, and/or carrots.
- Play around with the herbs by adding some basil or thyme.
- Add a few roasted cloves garlic or some olives
- Add a bit of melted butter to add more moisture and softness to the finished tart.
- Add a tiny bit of black pepper.
- Avocado – Or guacamole
- Sour cream – Or Greek yogurt
About The Ingredients
Large eggs – Chilled or room temperature.
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese – Best if grated by hand.
Broccoli – Fresh or frozen.
Red bell pepper – Or any color you prefer.
Onions – I used red onions, but any yellow or white onions will work as well.
Garlic powder – Or garlic granules.
Onion powder – Or onion granules.
Nutritional yeast – No added sugar.
Salt – I used pink Himalayan salt, but you can use whatever salt you normally use in cooking.
Fresh Italian parsley – a.k.a. – flatleaf parsley.
How To Make
Preheat oven to 350 F. Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl, and beat with a fork to break up the yolks and combine them with the whites. Do not use an electric beater. A fork gets the job done just right.
OPTIONAL STEP: you can sauté your veggies now in a little bit of oil to bring out more flavor if you wish. Cool them before adding them to the eggs. Or, skip this and move to the next step.
Combine the veggies, parsley, cheese, and eggs and stir well to combine.
Oil an 8 or 9-inch ceramic tart pan, set it on a baking tray (for easier handling in the oven), and pour the egg mixture into it. Bake for about 30 minutes (time can vary by oven), or until the egg is fully cooked.
Cool on a wire rack or trivet.
Slice like a pie and serve.
