Overnight Egg Bake Recipe
As many of you may know, I do the majority of my grocery shopping at Vons! Before I head to the store, I use my Vons app and head directly to the Just 4 U coupon category page.

People often ask me what kind of eggs I buy. I’m hooked on the Vital Farms Pasture-Raised Eggs these days. Have you bought Vital Farms Eggs before?! The color of their yolks alone are glorious! I mean, see for yourself.
Shopping at Vons is so convenient and easy, and everything is always so fresh. My first stop is always the dairy section, which is where I bought my Vital Farms Eggs and Butter. I think the Vital Farms chalkboard aesthetic packaging is so creative!
A few things I love about the Vital Farms eggs are that they’re pasture-raised, tended by hand on small family farms (I grew up on a farm in Selma, so this is soo important to me!), and they have the freedom to forage outdoors year-round (amazing!).
Plus, did you know that cage-free hens only get about 1 square foot of space and spend their entire lives indoors? That’s BS if you ask me. Vital Farms pasture-raised hens get 108 square feet and roam outside on real pastures year-round!
I also used Vital Farms Pasture-Raised Unsalted Butter (they also sell Vital Farms Pasture-Raised Sea Salted Butter) in this overnight egg bake.
I’m PICKY about the butter I buy at the store. This Vital Farms Butter, though, is great because their cows are pasture-raised and they’re raised with respect on American family farms. Most of the big brand butter comes from cows that spend their entire lives on concrete, but Vital Farms pasture-raised butter comes from contented cows living as nature intended— free to roam and graze their green pastures to their hearts’ content! Amen.

Artichoke spinach egg bake ingredients
I tried to keep the ingredients list for this veggie egg bake as short and sweet as possible so that you could easily make it during a busy week. Here’s what you’ll need to make this overnight egg bake:
- Vital Farm Pasture-Raised Unsalted Butter
- English muffins
- Red bell pepper
- Yellow onion
- Fresh spinach
- Canned artichokes
- Fresh dill or chives
- Vital Farms eggs
- White cheddar cheese
- Salt and pepper
How to make artichoke spinach egg bake
The best part of this easy egg bake recipe? You bake it all in ONE PAN. To make this baked egg casserole, place the cubed English muffins down in the pan, then you need to sauté your veggies in a frying pan with Vital Farms Unsalted Butter. Stir in the artichokes, and then set the veggies aside.
In a large bowl, crack the eggs. Add in the milk and seasonings, and whisk until eggs are completely broken up. Using the Vital Farms Unsalted Butter, butter the bottom of an 9×13-inch baking dish. Lay the veggies down over the English muffins, and then pour the egg mixture on top.
At this point, you’d want to cover the overnight egg bake with plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge to rest. When you wake up, you top it with more cheese and herbs, then bake. Easy peasy!
Does this have to sit overnight before I bake it?
No, you can bake this spinach egg casserole right away if desired. I just wanted you to have the option to prep this spinach egg bake the night before in case you’re making this for a holiday breakfast or something like that!
Can I make this with frozen spinach?
Most likely, yes. However, you’d need to thaw and thoroughly drain the spinach first.
Tips for making artichoke spinach egg bake
- This is a fairly flexible recipe. If you have other veggies on hand you’d like to add to this easy egg bake, go for it! Just make sure to cook them first (either sauté or steam them) before adding them to the spinach egg bake.
- You could also change up this veggie egg bake recipe by using different types of cheese in it. Goat cheese or your favorite cheese blend would work too.
- Once baked, you can slice and serve this spinach egg bake immediately. You can also freeze and reheat the slices later on, if desired.

I’m assuming it’s non marinated artichokes correct?
Not silly at all! But yes, I used the non marinated kind 🙂
Am I missing when to add the cheese? I don’t see it.
