Baked Eggs Florentine, Casa Escondida B&B, NM Vacation

Bake-up your own Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast experience at home with the recipe for our “Baked Eggs Florentine”. Casa Escondida Bed & Breakfast is a Santa Fe area B&B, which is located in the historic village of Chimayo, NM (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
serve.

Note: If you don’t need this large of a portion, you can freeze the unbaked portion.
