In my post on the 29th I mentioned having people over today for the “hangover party” with some breakfast casserole, and we did indeed go that route. I made two casseroles, the Mexican version (the recipe I posted), as well as a more traditional version with sage and cinnamon. I also made sticky buns which was a treat I haven’t had in a long time.
It has been quite nice doing nothing today and this food really hit the spot. The Mexican version turned out better than I remembered. Now my belly is full and I’m still in my pajamas as of 5PM and though I feel a bit guilty, there’s nothing that can be done now but bask in it and watch the Rose Bowl.
Oh and Georgia Tech sucked last night. Sucked bad.
I took some photos of the prep of the Mexican version. It’s a little more involved than some other breakfast casseroles, but it was worth it. The poblanos give it some good kick.
Greased up poblanos ready for 25 minutes of roasting at 400.
Chorizo sausage. Cooking it made the house smell like meat for half the day.
Before they go in the paper bag so I can peel the skin off.
Meat + peppers + onion + garlic. Crowded pan. I drained the grease off a bit with paper towels. There was way too much of it.
First layer poblanos.
Egg + half/half + green onion + cilantro + cheese
Starting the layering process.
Almost done. You can see the tortillas layered in there.
Ready to go in the fridge and hang out overnight, all done so I can just pop it in the oven for 1 hour the next morning.
All done. I should have got a photo of an individual slice because that looked even better. It went well. Try it out.
