Spinach Artichoke Egg Casserole

Spinach Artichoke Egg Casserole

Yield: 12+ servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes


  • 16 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 14 ounce can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 10 ounce box frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
  • 1 cup shredded white cheddar
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shaved onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  •  1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9 X 13 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and add the milk. Whisk the eggs well to combine.
  2. Break the artichoke hearts up into small pieces and separate the leaves. Squeeze the spinach with paper towels to remove all excess liquid. Then add both the artichokes and the spinach to the egg mixture. Add all remaining ingredients, withholding the ricotta cheese, and stir to combine. Pour the mixture into the prepared dish.
  3. Dollop the ricotta cheese evenly over the surface of the egg casserole. (I usually add about 12 dollops of ricotta, then break them in half with a spoon and separate them a little, so there are 24 "pockets" of ricotta throughout the mixture.) Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the center of the pan is fully cooked and doesn't jiggle when you shake the pan. Serve warm!
NOTE: This recipe can be easily "lightened up" by using all reduced fat cheese, plus 8 whole eggs and 16 egg whites.

    The ricotta in this has got to be my favorite part! This would be great for Mother’s Day Brunch

    I am going to hint, hint, hint to the Hubs that this would be a special Mother’s Day treat.

    Can this be prepared ahead of time?  Perhaps, mix and put in the fridge until the next morning?

      Hi Kaleigh, Yes! I would wait and add the ricotta right before baking. :)

    Is the amount correct for the ricotta ?? How do you get 24 dollops out of a 1/2 cup??

    • Sommerposted May 12, 2016 at 8:17 pm Reply

      Hi Lisa! They are little. About a teaspoon each. :)

    This looks delicious! Could I use fresh spinach (without having to pre-cook) and if so how many 6oz bags? And could I use cream cheese instead of ricotta? I can’t wait to try this!!! Thank you for sharing.

      Hi Camille! You can use fresh spinach, but it will definitely weep into the eggs a little. I would be tempted to flash-boil it first, then squeeze out the moisture. Maybe 1 1/2 pounds of fresh spinach? And yes, you can use cream cheese! :)

    I’m making this next week. I had to smile at the thought of the casserole “giggling” when I shake it. :)

    Do you think this could be frozen until ready to use? Maybe once it has baked?

    • Sommerposted December 15, 2016 at 8:56 am Reply

      Hi Becky,

      I have frozen quiche successfully, but haven’t tried it with this dish. My best guess is that if you let it thaw slowly in the fridge, it should be fine. Let me know if you try it! :)

    Do you think it would work if I added shredded chicken breast? I’d like to make it for dinner, so I need some protein.

    • Sommerposted February 9, 2017 at 8:42 pm Reply


      Personally I would count the eggs as protein, but feel free to add whatever you like! Chicken would definitely taste good in this dish.
