Mexican Style Baked Eggs

Breakfast & Brunch, Recipes


If you look in my refrigerator on any given day, you’ll always find plenty of condiments, but not a whole lot of predictability. Though some people have standby foods that they eat day in and day out, I get bored quickly.

Even so, the one item that you’ll almost always find on my shelves is eggs. There are so many different ways that you can eat eggs so that they won’t actually get boring. Not to mention the fact that they are a key ingredient in most baked goods. And we all know how I feel about baked goods.

Recently, Land O’Lakes invited me to create a unique recipe featuring their all-natural farm-fresh eggs. Now that the weather is colder here in Chicago, hot breakfasts are in and this baked egg dish has heat in more ways than one.

Mexican Style Baked Eggs
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 4 corn tortillas, roughly torn into pieces
  • 4 large Land O’Lakes eggs
  • 4 large Land O’Lakes egg whites
  • 2 links fully-cooked flavored chicken sausage (such as Aidell’s Habanero and Green Chile), diced
  • ¼ cup diced cherry tomatoes
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and diced
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Layer three of the torn tortillas on the bottom of a 9x13 casserole or baking dish. Top with the diced chicken sausage and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs and egg whites with the chopped tomato and jalapeño pepper. Pour egg mixture over the tortillas and sausage and top with the fourth tortilla, torn into pieces, as well as the shredded cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the egg mixture has completely set. Serve hot.
I was compensated by General Mills to develop this recipe.  All opinions here are my own.

    Another great eggy dish, going to make it for our company later this month. Is there a particular reason you are using whole eggs plus egg whites? Our family has no chlorestrol issues which may be one reason. I’d like to use 6 whole eggs instead if that is the only reason. Thank you

    I’ve been rediscovering my love for eggs lately (they used to give me stomach eggs in high quantities) and this looks fabulous.

    I love this recipe! This would definitely jazz up my breakfast routine–and I could make it ahead, which is an even bigger plus. I might try halving it to make it an 8×8, since it’s just little ol’ me here. 🙂
