Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets, or chopped brocoli stems and florets
  • 2 cups chopped asparagus stalks
  • 2 cups chopped fresh spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4-5 tbsp of flax seeds, optional, but yummy and super healthy!
  • 3 eggs, beaten into submission
  • 5 oz mayo
  • 5 oz sour cream
  • 1 cup parm cheese
  • 6 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup carb quik
  • ¾ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and Pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. In small skillet saute onions and garlic in olive oil until translucent.
  3. Combine all veggies in a large mixing bowl.
  4. In small bowl, combine eggs, cheese, mayo and sour cream.
  5. Add to veggies.
  6. Fold in onions and garlic.
  7. Add seasonings.
  8. Finally add bread crumbs and carbquik, flax seeds (optional).
  9. Mix all together until well blended (if the mix is too dry, you can always add another egg).
  10. Press into a 9x11" casserole pan.
  11. Bake at 350 until browned on top, about 45 - 50 minutes.
  12. Allow to cool and set up. Cut into squares.
Notes
Squares will be very moist. Awesome served with any meat, with a salad, soup, etc.....and I love them to have alone as a snack. If you're not worried about carbs, you can eliminate the carbquik and use extra bread crumbs. I estimate each square has around 5-6 carbs.
