Buenos Cheesy Días Egg Bake

Somehow, two weeks have already past since I came back from vacation. I’m not quite sure where the time went, and I honestly have to say that I’m surprised that the biggest challenge to overcome coming back from a long break overseas is NOT jetlag. It’s your focus, and your rhythm, and willingness to let this truth set in: It’s time to get bakin’!

Okay. I must admit that I’m having the most trouble with the very last one. I’m still putting my baking on hiatus, just cuz. But I did go back, way, way back, about a year back, to look at other recipes that I did but never got around to sharing them via this blog, and I think they deserve to get dusted off and re-see the light of the day. Starting with this Buenos Cheesy Días Egg Bake!

If you’re into brinners like I am, this would be a perfect option!

You Will Need:

  • 1 can Immaculate Baking Buttermilk Biscuits
  • 1 package (12 oz) bulk chorizo or spicy pork sausage
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 cup chopped bell pepper (any color)
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups shredded pepper Jack or Mexican cheese blend (8 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Here’s How to Get the Dough Rolling:

  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In 12-inch ovenproof skillet, cook sausage, onion and bell pepper over medium-high heat, until sausage is no longer pink; drain. Remove mixture from skillet; set aside.
  2. In large bowl, beat eggs and cream. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese, the pepper flakes and sausage mixture. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit into 6 pieces.
  3. Spread oil in bottom of skillet. Place biscuits in skillet. Pour sausage mixture over biscuits. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until egg mixture is set and crust is deep golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Sunday Brunch: Chorizo Quiche

I’m a HUGE fan of brunch. Eggs benedict, soufflé pancakes, egg white omelettes, cinnamon rolls and quiche.  So I guess I kind of lucked out that I blog and bake for a refrigerated dough brand that makes biscuits and cinnamon rolls and whadaya know, pie crust! I foresee many, many quiches in my future! Hmmm I think I’m in the mood for a brunch quiche with some Mexican flare!
