Green Chile and Egg Casserole

by Deliciously Organic on December 17, 2009

I’m writing this today as the movers pack our things and load them on the truck.  After a few hours of fresh cardboard being opened and our things being packed away, it’s interesting that it doesn’t even smell like our house anymore.  I’m going to miss our home and all the wonderful people in this little town.  Last night, we made our last trip to Jim ‘n Nicks (our local b-b-que joint) and the kids and I decided that when we move back we will head not for our home first, but back to this restaurant for some smoky chicken, mac ‘n cheese and those beloved cheese biscuits.

The recipe I’m sharing today comes from a dear family friend and wonderful cook. This egg casserole is basically two cheeses tossed with green chilies and topped with whipped eggs and tomatoes. The eggs come out gooey and cheesy (and happy, as my husband added the other night) with bits of bright flavor from the chilies. It’s a great breakfast to make over the holidays when guests are in town, especially since one recipe feeds at least 8 if not 10 and is very satisfying.
