Broccoli and Zucchini Egg Bars for Kids
Getting kids to eat their veggies can be tough, but when we mix the veggies into other foods sometimes it’s a little easier! If your kids love eggs, try our new Broccoli and Zucchini Egg Bars, inspired by My Fussy Eater! It’s an egg casserole with the veggies baked right in! Just pop this dish in the oven for 15 minutes while you finish up your morning time scurry. This will be a new family favorite for breakfast!
How to Make Kid-Approved Breakfast Egg Bars
Chop up your broccoli into little florets and grate your zucchini. Don’t worry about all the moisture that comes out of the zucchini, that will help to steam the veggies. Place the veggies in a frying pan and cook them for just a few minutes. This helps to give the veggies a head start on the cooking process and will evaporate extra moisture. In a separate bowl you’ll whisk together the remaining ingredients and then add the veggies. Pour into a pan and bake!
Is the Egg White or Yolk Healthier?
Eggs are known for being a great protein source, but are less known for giving some great vitamins and minerals. There is more protein in the egg white than yolk, but the yolk still does contain protein. The yolk may contain all the fat, but it also contains most of the vitamins and nutrients. The yolks are where it’s at if you’re looking to up your intake of vitamins A, B12, and D, as well as your daily calcium, folate, and omega-3s.
The slices come out perfectly so they’re even great for breakfast on the go! Eggs for breakfast is always a win because they’re packed with protein to keep your kids full until lunch. If you love this recipe you need to try our Egg Cups!
Can I Freeze Breakfast Egg Bars?
I love making a double batch of Breakfast Egg Bars and freezing the extras for an even quicker breakfast! Simply cut into bars, place onto a parchment paper covered baking sheet and freeze until solid. Once frozen, you can throw them in a ziplock bag or storage container until you’re ready to eat it! Try making a quick breakfast sandwich by serving the egg bar in an English Muffin!

Can you use frozen chopped broccoli?
Looks delicious! I’m wondering how long they will keep in the fridge once cooked, for a convenient make ahead breakfast option.
Hi! Just wondering – have you tried reheating these? If I were to make it in advance, does it reheat well? Thanks for all your recipe ideas
What to replace zucchini? I don’t have zucchini nor cucumber now. Thank you ????????
I thought egg yolks were not good for high cholesterol. I was always told to avoid egg yolks because of this.
Hi Jennifer, thanks for reaching out! The newest thinking on egg yolks and cholesterol is that the yolks are just fine to eat. Here’s an article from Harvard Health explaining why: https://www.health.harvard.edu/heart-health/are-eggs-risky-for-heart-health
More generally, we like to focus on whole foods for kids whenever possible, and eggs are no exception. The yolks have some really beneficial vitamins and minerals like calcium and folate.
