Egg Tortilla Bake (2 Ways)

Prep Time 5 minutes
Course Breakfast
Servings 4


  • Cooking spray or a bit of oil for greasing the baking dish
  • 1 tortilla 8-10 inches in diameter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup cottage cheese
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

**Flavor Option One:**

  • Diced tomatoes
  • Diced green peppers
  • Chopped spinach or arugula
  • 1/4 cup Mozzarella cheese or your choice of cheese

**Flavor Option Two:**

  • Tomatoes
  • Kalamata olives
  • Red onions
  • Spinach
  • Feta cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). While it’s heating up, gather your ingredients and prepare the toppings.
  • Take a round baking dish or a pie dish similar in size to the tortilla. Lightly grease the bottom and sides with cooking spray or a small amount of oil.
  • Place the tortilla at the bottom of the baking dish to create the crust.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and cottage cheese until well combined. Season the mixture with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Pour the egg and cottage cheese mixture over the tortilla in the baking dish, ensuring it spreads evenly.
  • Now, it’s time to add the toppings. Get creative! Sprinkle diced tomatoes, diced green peppers, and chopped spinach or arugula evenly over the egg mixture. Alternatively, use Flavor Option Two with tomatoes, olives, red onions, and spinach. Feel free to add other ingredients like diced onions, mushrooms, or cooked bacon if desired.
  • Finally, sprinkle your choice of cheese over the top of the toppings for a deliciously cheesy finish.
  • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the eggs are set, and the top is golden brown. Keep an eye on it to avoid overcooking, as cooking times may vary.
  • Once done, remove the tortilla egg bake from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing it into wedges or squares. Enjoy your tasty and nutritious breakfast!
