Roasted Hatch Green Chile egg casserole makes for a quick breakfast, lunch, or dinner! An egg casserole recipe with layers of green chiles, creamy artisan cheese, spinach, and other vegetables. It’s wholesome yet light and delicious! Grain free, gluten free, and easy to make.
It’s Hatch Green Chile Season. This means Hatch Green Chile Festivals take place and all over New Mexico and pretty much everywhere! People love their Hatch Green Chiles and a lot of stores roast them outside the store during the season. Our Harmon’s grocery store has the roaster going all day. Kinda smells like home sweet home.
Which is why I’m posting this baked eggs recipe today. Well, for two reasons really. I always have my reasons, don’t I?
Okay okay, first of all, I desperately needed to update my original hatch green chile casserole recipe. It needed a revamp. Don’t worry, it’s still good, but I wanted to upgrade a few tips, tricks, and grain free tweaking. So I took that oldie but goodie recipe and fine tuned it, making it more like one of my family’s favorite breakfast/brunch recipes. A cheese and egg souffle like breakfast casserole/ bake. But not just any cheese, the good artisan quality aged cheese y’all. Yes, the type of egg casserole that is so fluffy, cheesy, and delicious, you’ll want to eat it every morning. I’ll expand more on that in a minute.
And the second reason? Well, we are less than a month away from Fall y’all! What?! How in the world did that happen? But you know what? I say BRING IT ON! Bring on crisp air, the colors, and the aroma if something always cookin in the oven.
You feel me?
I mean, who doesn’t love walking into a home with a pot of chili on the stove? Or bread in the oven? Let’s just add this roasted hatch green chile egg casserole to that heavenly smell list. Gah! You’ll want to wake up to this everyday, as mentioned above. Just sayin.
Now, let’s discuss these layers upon layers in this egg casserole y’all.
Eggs, spinach, creamy Kaltbach Le Cremeux cheese (you know my love for Emmi Kaltbach Le Cremeux in grain free breakfast dished), garlic, onion, green chiles, and wait for it… Roasted HATCH Green CHILE! Basically a double dose of green chiles, two ways y’all.
Let me explain .
You can roast hatch green chiles to add to this egg casserole or you can use the canned version. You know me, we like spicy so I did both. Lol!
HOW TO MAKE THE ROASTED HATCH GREEN CHILE EGG CASSEROLE:
But y’all, the more green chile the merrier. Right? Roasting the hatch green chiles takes 5 minutes and creates a smokey kickin flavor to that cheesy egg casserole. Just make sure you add that extra creamy artisan cheese On top. It helps make the edges nice and crispy. I may be bias, but I think this dish has all the right textures.Print
I should also note that you can can kill two birds with one stone with your shopping list here. Harmon’s not only roasts the Green Chiles for you, but they also now carry Emmi Kaltbach Le Crémeux That’s my free local tip for you if you live in Utah, mmm k?
Okay. I spent way too much time talking about my love for an egg casserole. I think I needed to talk out my feelings in food form. If you get what I’m saying.
Needed. That is all.
Ps I turn in my final edits for the cookbook manuscript and photos today. I’ll be devouring this goodness a sigh of relief tomorrow morning. At least it’s low carb right? Lol.
Thanks for putting up with my crazy Cotter humor today y’all. I promise to be back to normal next month. Capeesh?
