Serves 8-10


  • 2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil or coconut oil (plus more for greasing the pan)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 medium carrots, peeled and grated
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated
  • 1 TBSP Italian seasoning (or any herb blend)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 6-8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 12 large eggs
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  2. Grease a 9×13-inch casserole dish with oil and set aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the beef and cook, breaking up with a utensil, until mostly browned and cooked through, 4-5 minutes. Add the carrots, onion, and zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir for 1 minute. Stir in the bacon and remove from heat.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the greased casserole dish. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until frothy, about 3 minutes. Pour the beaten eggs into the casserole dish.
  5. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the eggs are set and cooked through in the middle. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve slices of the casserole topped with parsley, if desired.
