I first made a Kale, Mushroom, and Cheese Breakfast casserole for guests, and it was so well received that I decided to post the recipe! Give it a try if you love the idea of starting your day with healthy veggies in a low carb breakfast casserole!
If you look around in a category breakfast dishes In Kalyn’s kitchen, you will notice many, many variations of breakfast dishes. There is even a popular post with it Low Carb Breakfast Basic Instructions. I make this kind of dish on the weekend and keep it in the fridge to reheat for a quick breakfast during the week, and most of the time I use what’s in the fridge without following an actual recipe. But after I hit this Kale, Mushroom & Cheese Breakfast Casserole Twice for guests and people who liked it both times I decided this was a recipe I needed to post on the blog. And I recently updated this favorite recipe with new photos, so I remind you of it Friday favorite Today. I often make this with half feta cheese and half mozzarella cheese, but you can swap in the cheese however you like!
Of course this is also a perfect breakfast for anyone who wants Meat recipesAnd although I call this a breakfast casserole, I would enjoy this for lunch or a light dinner as well. I always like to use kale in my breakfast casserole, because Kale and other dark leafy greens are the healthiest foods you can eatAnd I like to start the day with a dose of greens.
What ingredients do you need for this recipe?
- olive oil
- finely chopped turnip
- crumbled feta cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
- shredded mozzarella cheese (or other cheese of your choice)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Spike seasoning (affiliate link) (or another all-purpose spice blend)
- Sour cream for serving (optional)
What if you don’t like Kali?
You can definitely make this breakfast dish with other types of leafy greens if you’re not a fan of kale! If you are using a soft green such as spinach or Swiss chard, you will need a shorter cooking time to wilt the vegetables. Everything else will be the same.
How this recipe works:
(Scroll down for the full recipe with nutritional information.)
- Preheat oven to 375°F/190°C and spray a baking dish with nonstick spray, about 9″ x 13″ or similar size.
- I use brown cremini mushrooms or regular white mushrooms in this recipe, and I make them into thick slices.
- Fry the mushrooms in a little olive oil until they release the liquid and turn a light brown color.
- Then put the mushrooms on the bottom of the baking dish.
- Heat a little oil in the same pan, add the chopped turnip all at once, and cook until just barely wilted. This will take no more than 2-3 minutes at high temperatures or even less time for baby cabbage.
- Place a layer of kale on top of the mushrooms in the baking dish. Such a generous amount of turnip,
- Then sprinkle over the cheese (feta and mozzarella for me) and season with a little freshly ground black pepper Spike seasoning (affiliate link) or another all-purpose spice blend.
- Beat eggs until well combined and pour over vegetables and cheese. (Bad picture, but there are actually some eggs poured on that cheese!
- Then take a fork and gently “stir” until all the ingredients are coated with the eggs and the top of the breakfast casserole has a good mixture of ingredients.
- I usually sprinkle a little cheese to make the surface look nice and cheesy!
- Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the casserole is completely cooked through and its surface begins to turn light brown.
- Serve hot, with a little sour cream if you like sour cream.
- This will keep in the fridge for a few days and can be reheated in the microwave or in a skillet on the stove for a quick weeknight breakfast option!

- 16 oz. Mushrooms cut into thick slices
- 2 tons of olive oil
- 8 oz. finely chopped cabbage (or a little more is fine)
- 5 oz. crumbled feta (see notes)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (see notes)
- Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp. Spike seasoning (optional, see notes)
- 12 eggs, whisked until yolks and whites are well blended
- Sour cream for serving (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 375°F / 190°C. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray. (I used a 9″ x 13″ white earthenware dish, but any size close to that will work.)
- Wash and dry the mushrooms if necessary and cut them into thick slices.
- Heat 1 ton of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, add the mushrooms, and cook until the mushrooms come out liquid and have evaporated, and the mushrooms begin to turn slightly brown, about 5-6 minutes.
- Spread the mushrooms on the bottom of the baking dish.
- While the mushrooms are cooking, chop the turnip if necessary, chop the thicker stems and chop the leaves. Wash the turnip if necessary, and dry it. (I used a bundle of chopped kale, which is a huge time saver if your store carries it.)
- Add 1 more ton of olive oil to same skillet, heat to medium, add chopped cabbage all at once and saute, turning cabbage over and over until wilted, about 2-3 minutes. (cabbage baby It will take less time than this.)
- Place the shriveled cabbage over the mushrooms in the baking dish.
- Sprinkle crumbled feta cheese and shredded mozzarella over the vegetables, season with freshly ground black pepper and Spike seasoning (affiliate link) or other multipurpose seasoning.
- Beat eggs until well blended; Then pour the eggs over the cheese.
- Use a fork to gently “fry” until all of the ingredients are coated with the egg and the top of the casserole shows a nice mixture of mushrooms and kale. (Sprinkle a little cheese on top if you’re picky like me!)
- Bake at 375°F/190°C for 30-35 minutes, or until casserole is completely set and surface begins to turn light brown. (If the baking dish is smaller so that the egg mixture becomes thicker, more time may be needed.)
- Serve hot with a little sour cream, if desired.
- This will keep in the fridge for at least a week and can be quickly reheated in the microwave.
Use brown or white mushrooms, whichever you prefer. I used a little more than half of the 16 oz. A bunch of chopped turnip. Five ounces of feta cheese equals one cup of crumbled feta cheese. (Use about 2 cups of shredded cheese of your choice for this recipe.) You can use any all-purpose seasoning you like if you don’t have spikes.
