Southwest Egg Puff

by Laura

I got this recipe for Southwest Egg Puff after going to a shower. They served this as part of a brunch and it was delicious. I was really surprised at what the recipe consisted of.

Also, it is really yummy because it is different than your normal run of the mill eggs. The green chilis are what really make this dish.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I like to kick it up even more and use 2 c. of cheddar cheese and 2 c. of pepper jack cheese. I add some frozen corn kernels and chopped onion as well. It is also great leftover – either hot or cold…and it freezes well! I usually bake half in a dish to eat that day (it’s just my husband and me), and bake the other half in silicone cupcake cups. I pop the cupcakes out when they’re done and cool and I freeze them…they’re a great quick, out the door breakfast…either thawed and cold or microwaved for 30-60 seconds and eaten hot.
