How to Make Vegetable Bake for Breakfast

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 400°F first; you need it ready, nice, and hot. Add you red onion, bell pepper chunks, and mushroom and zucchini slices to your baking dish.

Now, drizzle over that lovely olive oil and season with your salt and pepper. Give everything a really good toss to coat all of your vegetables.

Pop your baking dish into the oven and roast your vegetables for 25-30 minutes.  Half through your cooking time, stir them round to make sure nothing is sticking and to cook evenly. 

Step 2. Next, in a bowl, add your eggs and your parsley.  Using a whisk, this one is so easy to use, and beat well.  You want it frothy and thoroughly mixed up.

Step 3. Pour the egg mixture all over the vegetables and return the dish to the oven for a further 10 minutes. (For 5 minutes longer if you are using your baking dish from the refrigerator)

Yummy!  So golden and delicious!

Step 4. If you can wait, allow it to cool for 5 minutes as it will be easier to cut and serve, that’s enough time to grab a cup of coffee.
