This is a fairly low-carb recipe, but it is NOT LOW-FAT. You can change the ingredients to anything you like, just be sure to use the 4 eggs to 1.5 cups of dairy (milk, cream or even 1/2 cup of sour cream works just fine, as long as it totals 1.5 cups!).
- 4 eggs
- 1 1⁄2 cups cream (or a blend of milk and cream, your choice)
- 6 mushrooms, sliced
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 6 ounces chorizo sausage
- 3⁄4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne (to taste)
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- In a medium mixing bowl, stir together eggs, cream (or mixture of milk and cream) and spices, set aside.
- Saute chopped mushrooms, green onions and chorizo together in a pan until mushrooms and chorizo are no longer raw, about 5 - 7 minutes. You may need a dash of olive oil to prevent sticking.
- Have ready a buttered baking dish (I used a cast-iron scone pan, see photo). Place chorizo mixture on the bottom, then cheese, then pour egg mixture over top. Sprinkle with paprika, if desired.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 20-40 minutes, depending on your pan and your oven. CHECK OFTEN as ovens vary. My cast iron scone pan only took 20 minutes!
- Cook until slightly brown on top and eggs do not jiggle. Let set for 10 minutes. You might sprinkle extra green onions or chili flakes on top, if you like - get creative! Sliced black olives make a nice touch.
Delicious and reheats very well for a quick breakfast or lunch. A festive way to start the day!
