(just 35 minutes north of Santa Fe). The guests at Casa Escondida LOVE
our Baked Eggs Florentine
. It is perfect for breakfast or for a brunch offering.
Ingredients (serves 8 – 10):
2 whole eggs + 4 egg yolks (store and refrigerate the egg whites)
1/2 t dried basil or 1 t chopped fresh basil
1 T Garlic, chopped
2 T Sour Cream
1/2 box of Cream Cheese, softened
1 C Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 C of half & half (or milk if you don’t have half & half on hand)
1 1/2 T Red Chile Powder (we use mild Chimayo chile)
Salt & Peppter
1 Medium Red Onion, chopped
Mix all of the above listed ingredients.
Then fold in 1/2 bag of thawed, chopped, frozen spinach.
Beat the egg whites that you had set aside, until soft peaks form and fold into the batter. If you are preparing this as a make-ahead dish, wait to beat the egg whites until you are preparing to bake.
Spray a baking dish. Pour the mix into the baking dish and sprinkle with a little more shredded cheddar cheese.
Bake at 375 for 20 – 25 minutes until puffed and golden brown.We use individual baking
dishes for our guests but you can use a large baking dish and simply cut
the baked Florentine into individual portions and then plate and
Note: If you don’t need this large of a portion, you can freeze the unbaked portion.
