Chorizo Charged Breakfast (Lunch, or Dinner)


This is a filling dish that keeps you that way until least.  You could sub in less spicy sausage if you like, but you won't find that at my house!


  • 4 ounces chorizo - I used a smoked chicken chorizo
  • ¼ cup green onion - chopped
  • 1 small tomato - seeded, and chopped
  • 6 pastured eggs
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese - divided in two
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin

Preheat oven to 350°.  Place chorizo, green onion, and tomato in the bottom of a 9" pie pan.  In a small mixing bowl whisk eggs, and water together.  Add ¼ C of the cheese, and cumin to the eggs, and pour over pie pan.  Add the remaining cheese to the top and place in 350° for 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.

I found it at Whole Foods behind the meat counter. The brand was Amylu and it is pork free, no antibiotics, made in Chicago, all ingredients I knew!

Wow, I'm making this for the rest of my family very soon! Sounds totally lovely. Also, thanks for posting about my granola. I have a couple of variations. This morning I had no banana so I topped it with some dried currants. Yum! Am off to substitute teach!
