California Egg Casserole {Recipe}

    Posted by  ·  April 4, 2012

    If you have been dying eggs for Easter you have some eggs to deal with. We have blown our eggs and this casserole is the perfect way to use them up. This egg casserole is California fresh!

    This yummy recipe is from my friend Karin! I love that it has loads of fresh tomatoes, avocados and green onions.

    California Egg Casserole

    12 eggs

    3-4 cups shredded Jack cheese (I used two cups)


    2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

    2 large ripe tomatoes, diced

    2 large avocados, cubed

    3/4 cup green onions, diced

    8 oz cream cheese cut into small chunks

    3/4 cup milk

    Optional : Italian chicken sausage, cooked and cut into chunks. Another friend tired diced ham and said it was really yummy. Cooked chopped bacon would also be a nice addition.


    Prepare 9×13 dish with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix eggs with milk, beat well.

    Layer 2 cups Jack cheese and 1 cup cheddar in bottom of dish (I only did the two cups Jack cheese). Layer remaining ingredients: avocados, tomatoes, green onions, cream cheese. Cover with remaining cheese and cover all with egg/milk mixture. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy

      Can I make this ahead and put in the refrigerator overnight?

      This was amazing!!! Made it for my daughter's birthday brunch. Since then have also made in muffin cups and frozen them for grab and go breakfasts.

      I made this to take along and share for Easter breakfast at church. Wow, was it ever delicious!! I put it together the night before (to refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning) and was somewhat concerned that the avocados might discolor. I pushed the avocado pieces down into the egg mixture as best I could, sprinkled bacon bits all over the top of the casserole, and hoped for the best. The avocados stayed bright green and appetizing! I will be making this again and again. Thank you so much for sharing.

      The casserole looks yummy! I've been debating whether to hard boil the eggs, blow them out or take my chances and dye the eggs raw. Reaching for colored eggs in the carton makes me so happy...
