Taco Egg Bake – Whole30!
Ya’ll know that I LOVE a good egg bake! Normally, I like them with lots of cheese like my Easy Cheesy Overnight Egg Bake and my Easy Sausage Biscuit Egg Bake. But I wanted to make an egg bake that was filled with lots of flavor, but cheese-less for my dairy-free friends. This Taco Egg Bake is colorful, flavorful and perfect for a weekend morning breakfast or to use as meal prep throughout the week.
I did my first ever Whole30 in January. And although I missed soooo many foods and is not something I would do long term, it had its advantages. It did serve as a good healthy rest for me after the holidays. And, it forced me to be a little more creative in the kitchen. Just because I couldn’t eat grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, etc. didn’t mean I was willing to sacrifice flavor.
Thus, our Taco Egg Bake was born. I think my favorite thing about this egg bake is how COLORFUL it is. In a world where we are obsessed with posting a picture of everything we eat (um guilty! see evidence at my instagram), presentation is so important. We eat with our eyes.
What you’ll need for this Whole30 Egg Bake:
- Ground beef
- Taco seasoning (compliant if on Whole30)
- Bell Pepper
Before assembling the egg bake, we brown and sauté all the layers. Start with the ground beef, because we then use the leftover fat to cook the rest. The potatoes, bell peppers and onion all get some browning action. Then into the baking dish! The taco seasoning is whisked into the egg mixture before being poured over everything. Once it is all assembled, into the oven she goes!
The taco egg bake should take about 30-35 minutes to be fully cooked and set.
