Breakfast For Dinner .. Chef’s Favorite!
Whenever time or ideas are short for dinner, breakfast is a great option. This dish can easily be recreated with any type of sausage, but the flavor of pork chorizo cannot be beat! It brings a little heat and a ton of flavor to your eggs.
What Is Chorizo?
Chorizo is a Spanish word and is a pork or beef sausage. I used a Mexican Pork Chorizo, there are also Spanish and Portuguese, all variations on a theme. The Mexican version is usually easily available in the meat department of most grocery stores. If you cannot find it at yours, you may need to find a local Mexican-Latin American market. I grew up in South Texas, so this was always available!
How To Make Chorizo and Eggs
• Cook your pork chorizo. The pork Chorizo will give off a lot of fat so be sure and let a little drain on some paper towels. I like to a bit of fat with my eggs.
• Sauté your onions and scallions and jalapenos in a little olive oil until soft. If you want a milder version, use a green pepper instead of a jalapeno. Cool the onions, scallions,
and jalapenos for your mixture.
• Mix 9 eggs with three cups of milk with some salt and pepper.
• Add 2 cups of Mexican Cheese Blend
• Add in pork chorizo, onions, and jalapeno’s stir into egg mixture to combine. I fill ramekins with the egg mixture and cook at 450 degrees in the oven. I then invert the ramekin onto
the plate. Remove the ramekin.
• Top your pork chorizo and eggs with a Mexican cheese blend or I like to use a white cheddar cheese. Pico is good as well!
• Garnish with chopped cilantro and pork green chili and you have got a great meal!
