New Decade of Fab Foods

Welcome to 2020!  Who knows what the next decade will bring, but I hope all of my followers will be healthy and prosperous.  Let's greet the new year with a simple and tasty brunch casserole (aka 'egg bake',  aka 'hotdish', etc etc) that is a bit out of the ordinary.

Annie and Aaron hosted a small brunch on New Year's day with just the family.  It is so nice that our grown 'kids' all live here so we can hang out often.  Aaron made Nisu French toast (see a future blog for that) and bacon.  I offered to bring some eggs to the gathering.

I hope you enjoy this.  What typically can be a boring egg bake, turned out really jazzed up with the green chilis and the heat from the chorizo.  It goes best with a slathering of salsa and a dollop of sour cream.  Sorry no photo, we ate it too fast and I simply forgot to in the midst of conversation with the fam.  I made this recipe up as I went.  Feel free to adjust the quantities to what works for you.  You can use any cheese you have.  I had mozzarella, so that is what was used.

Stay safe foodies.  Cheers to a great 2020!
