Baked Eggs with Green Chilies

"I think these yummy eggs are good for breakfast, lunch or supper, and the recipe doubles easily for a bigger crowd. You can get creative with this basic recipe, changing the cheese and the flavors to suit your mood. I like spinach and sundried tomatoes with cheddar and a few red pepper flakes."

    This is great. Just enough for two people (we are big breakfast eaters). I used cheddar cheese vs. monterey jack and it was wonderful. May add two 4 oz. cans green chilies next time but that is personal prefernece. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks.

    This was AWESOME! The balance in flavor was just right and the texture was perfect. The eggs had just the right amount of firmness while still being creamy and the green chilies offered great flavor with a very nice hint of spice. We made a few substitutions to make this South Beach friendly: We used whole wheat flour, melted Smart Balance spread, lowfat cottage cheese, and 4 oz of 2% milk cheddar cheese plus 4 oz of part skim mozzarella cheese. I served this topped with some good salsa. My husband is super picky and he said this was a definite keeper and was one of his favorite egg dishes so far. Thanks!!

    This so good, Made it for lunch, made half the recipe for the two of us. Mixed the eggs, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper with my hand blender. Then stired in the chilies, cottage cheese, jack cheese. Baked it for 30 minutes, served it with my home canned Salsa. What a yummy lunch, but, would be good for any meal. Thank you Geema for another delicious recipe.


<p>Life often interupts our comfortable routines in very unexpected ways and in the past three years I've certainly faced some challenges.&nbsp; As a health nut who ate mostly vegetarian I was beyond shocked to discover that I was diabetic.&nbsp;<img title=Yell src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-yell.gif border=0 alt=Yell /> I shouted and rebelled and cried.&nbsp; But the good news is that I can control my glucose levels simply by eating very low carb.&nbsp; What a complete turn around it was to&nbsp;pass up&nbsp;all my high carb vegetarian foods like grains, and veggies and embrace meat!&nbsp;<img title=Surprised src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-surprised.gif border=0 alt=Surprised /> I've adjusted to this limited diet and thanks to Zaar can eat a nice variety of healthful meals.</p> <p>&nbsp;The next challenge was a freakish fall I took while in New York with my daughter that left me paralyzed and in much pain. I thank God that I am so much better today after more than two years recovery, with total mobility and just some minor pain in my arms and hands.&nbsp; Cooking and communicating here was not really on my priority list.&nbsp; But, I am back in action and ready to cook, take photos, and enjoy this wonderful community of friends.<img title=Laughing src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif border=0 alt=Laughing /></p> <p>My husband and I continue to enjoy our grandchildren and being closely involved with their day to day activities.&nbsp; I am also the proud owner of a sweet grey and white cat who came to my door as a little kitten 6 months ago.&nbsp; Her name is Bonny and you can read her story here:&nbsp; <a href= target=_blank></a>.</p> <p>&nbsp;When I have time for myself, I love to do all things artistic...drawing, pastels, paper craft, scrapbooking, and most recently jewelry making.&nbsp; I have set up a website on ETSY ( shown on this page by my website)and you can go there and see my creations.<img title=Cool src=../tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /><br /><br /><br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src= alt= /></p>
