Bacon, Tomato, and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs

Bacon, Tomato, and Cheddar Breakfast Bake with Eggs

Regular readers of this blog know that eggs are my favorite food, and I just can't pass up cheese, eggs, and bread at brunch so when I came across this recipe on Food & Wine, it was a no brainer. The combination of creamy eggs with smoky salty bacon, sweet tomatoes, and tons of melted cheese is a crowd pleaser. This dish can be prepared way ahead of time so if you have a brunch or potluck to go too, you won't have to stress yourself out the day of to get it ready. Despite the eggs getting a little overcooked, leftovers of this dish are equally as good since the flavors have time to meld. The only change I made to this recipe was to used diced tomatoes and cut the original amount in half. It comes from Food & Wine, November 2010 and can be found here.

Bread pudding meets breakfast..gotta love that. Eggs are my favorite as well. I'm a sucker for runny yolk!

Looks delicious because eggs are one of my favorite foods too. And bacon and cheddar don't hurt it either.

I love that you can totally put this together the night before and then crack the eggs in the morning and voila! Loving baked egg dishes lately.

Mmm...I love cheesy eggs, too. Not sure how I missed this in the magazine -- I usually tag so the recipe doesn't get lost in the jungle of food mags.
