Jalapeno Breakfast Pie

(4 servings)

  • 6 large eggs - beaten
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounce jar of pickled jalapenos - sliced
I halved this recipe and made a single serving in a 4-inch round pan. I liked the complexity of flavor that was created from only 3 ingredients. I'd suggest that you taste the jalapenos and adjust the amount you use. Mine were extremely hot, so I ended up scattering about 1 Tablespoon over the bottom of the pan. I served my Jalapeno Breakfast Pie with warm corn tortillas and salsa. This was a surprisingly good recipe. I'm sure I'll make it again. (This recipe was submitted in 2004. It was tested and photographed in February 2014.)
