This is the best egg bake EVER! The simple ingredients make it perfect!
So what makes it so special? Probably because it’s filled with 3 different kinds of cheese, spinach, and a special ingredient…jalapeño. You’re not using the seeds of the jalapeño, so it doesn’t make it spicy, but it adds a great flavor and just the tiniest bit of heat.
This has become a Christmas morning tradition as well as the main course for the Mother’s Day Brunch we host every year. I got the original recipe from a friend of mine whose mother used to make it for them. My friend’s mother passed away about 10 years before I met her, so we share a special connection having both lost our mothers.
I think about her mom every time I make this.
You can easily make this the night before and bake it up the morning of an event. Or this would be great for meal planning for the week!
You know the perfect side for this? BACON!! If you haven’t heard about my trick to get the crispiest bacon, then go to my Instagram account and I have a story highlight saved for it. Basically, you lay out the bacon on a tinfoil lined baking sheet, place it in a cold oven, set the temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and let it cook for 20 minutes. After you take it out of the oven, remove the bacon from the baking sheet and lay it out on some paper towels. This will help to absorb some of the grease and keep it crispy.
My favorite bacon is the Applegate No Sugar bacon. It gets the crispiest!
Enjoy your breakfast!
