Southeastern Arizona B and B Recipe

Southeastern Arizona B and B Offers Our Southwest Egg Bake Recipe

Being a Southeastern Arizona B and B, one of our breakfasts reflects the flavors of Southwestern cuisine. We provide a savory Southwestern dish with a spicy taste. This is one of our breakfasts when you stay at our Southeastern Arizona B and B. This meal is both tasty and allows flexibility for preparation. With minor modifications, we are able to make it vegetarian, gluten free, lactose free. We can provide a breakfast appears the same but meets the dietary restriction of our guests.Southeastern Arizona B and B egg bake picture

When we have guests with dietary restrictions, we place the portions into 7 ounce ramekins. The portions will vary from the 8″ sized dish. After you have reapportioned the ingredients, the bake time changes to 50 minutes uncovered. This method allows us to modify the meal to the guests requirements and make the meal similar for everyone at the table. For lactose intolerant guests we substitute soy milk with some flour to thicken the mixture and we leave the cheese off. Omitting the chorizo makes the dish meatless. We can also substitute turkey sausage for the red meat in chorizo.
