Cheesy Ham Broccoli Casserole with eggs, a healthy, low carb recipe for a delicious brunch. It's light, but filling, jam-packed with fantastic flavours, the perfect recipe after an epic feast like Thanksgiving or Christmas. The leftover ham can be replaced with turkey, chicken or beef, or omitted, for a vegetarian version. This broccoli bake is my absolute favourite side dish.
