Jalapeño Popper Egg Bake

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

This week I had the brilliant idea to give up carbs...for the week....of Halloween.  Let's just all say together "What were you thinking?"  Between the gobs and candy and festive treats hanging around it's been a challenging week.  Oh yeah, and it's only Tuesday.  Lord help me.   Last night I asked Mr. Schwartz, who is also doing the no carb thing this week, "Is candy a carb?" and he responded with a "Umm yeah."  Bummer.

Well, Jalapeño Popper Egg Bake really doesn't have anything to do with Halloween, candy or carb free week but it does have to do with delicious.  I'm pretty sure you could make this carb free if you skip the milk and cheese too.  Might be worth a shot this week.
Start by thinly slicing a jalapeño.  Set it aside for now
Crack a few eggs
Pour in a splash of milk
Sprinkle in some seasoned salt, this is my all time favorite kind.  
A good amount of cheese
Some cooked bacon
And give it a stir to combine
Pour it out into a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Then, break of little chunks of cream cheese.  I didn't think this would really make a difference but boy did it! Seriously such a good touch to this dish
And lastly place the jalapeños on top.  Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or so
Or until it comes out looking like this.
Slice it up
and serve
I have to say, this is one of my favorite egg bakes.  Salty, slightly spicy (really not as spicy as I had thought) and creamy with that cream cheese.  I'm pretty sure you will love it.  

Now, where's my cupcake with a side of pasta?!....ugh...

Jalapeño Popper Egg Bake 

1 Jalapeño, thinly sliced
5 eggs
1/2 milk 
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (this is my favorite kind)  
1 cup cheese (I used shredded cheddar)
1 cup bacon, cooked 
2 tablespoons cream cheese 

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Start by whisking together the eggs, milk, seasoned salt, cheese and bacon.  Pour this mixture into a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Pull of little chunks of cream cheese and place them around the top of the egg mixture.  Do the same and place the jalapeño slices on the top as well.  

Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes depending on how big of a baking dish you are using.  

Remove from the oven and serve.

  1. So happy to have stumbled across this recipe. I was missing the bacon unfortunately but next time I will definitely add it in! I topped this with a tiny bit of spicy ranch and it hit the spot. Keep up the good work!

  2. How much milk do you use? With the pictures, you say a splash, and the recipes just says 1/2 milk. 1/2 cup?
