Sometimes a meal just needs to be easy. This one is! Perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
First let me say a big THANKS to all my readers for the overwhelming response to my last post. I hope you all are enjoying it and getting organized! If you missed it, you can read it HERE.
For those that have no idea what I'm talking about, my last post gave an extensive meal plan, including prices and a shopping list. This Spicy Egg Bake was one of the first ones I included. I don't know about you but sometimes I just want breakfast for dinner.
Like once a week.
I love eggs, what can I say?
This one is easy because you can prepare it the night before or early in the morning and then just slide it in the oven 45 minutes before you need to eat.
This egg bake is a bit different from my usual one. #1) I used a spicy ground sausage. #2) I put salsa in the eggs and on top of the eggs once baked. #3) I layered the bottom with crescent rolls, giving it a sturdy, hearty, delicious crust.
We loved this! You know, thank goodness, my family enjoys eggs as I'm shoving them in their face at least once a week. It somewhat gives me a "night off". They are easy to make and so flavorful when the right fixins' are mixed in.
In fact today for lunch I had a fried egg sandwich topped with spicy brown mustard and organic mayo all on a toasted English muffin. So good! I could seriously eat that sandwich every.single.day.
