I wanted to make a savory egg dish to take to Thursday morning coffee with the ladies, but couldn't decide on what I wanted to make. I didn't have any sausage and was kind of in a mood for something mexican/southwestern. So I created this! It was delicious and it disappeared! The six of us ate the entire pan. Very yummy!
Southwestern Egg Bake
1 can of tomatoes with green chilies (I used Del Monte brand), drained
8 oz of Colby and monterey jack cheese
1 onion, diced
1/4 tsp of red chili pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
salt to taste
1 tsp butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. In a small skillet, add butter and let it melt. Then add onions and saute until translucent. You just want them to soften a bit but still to have some texture to them. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine eggs and seasonings and whisk well. Then add, tomatoes, cheese and sauteed onions. Pour into greased baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. Mine was done at 25 minutes and I probably could have even pulled it out at 20 minutes and it would have been fine. However, I think my oven cooks a bit hot. So start keeping a good eye on it around 20 minutes. You'll know it's done when the middle no longer jiggles and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean.
