This savory egg bake recipe is delicious way to start off the day! It’s almost like a southwestern version of Shakshuka, flavored with paprika, cumin, and spicy chorizo. We opted to add black beans to this skillet egg bake to round out the lower carb and dairy-free dish, but you can feel free to omit for paleo or Whole30.

What skillet should I use for this recipe?

Any oven safe skillet will work here. If you are using cast iron, make sure it is enameled as prolonged tomato exposure can ruin the seasoning on a regular cast iron skillet.

Saucy Chorizo Skillet Baked Eggs

Last week I realized that there are so many recipes that I love and/or want to conquer that aren’t on LCK in any variation. Well, I didn’t just realize this last weekend, but a little light went off in my head that reminded me to do some work on my ever-growing recipe idea list (major fun lists in the note section of my iPhone).  A sneak peek into my notes? NY-Style Coffee Crumb Cakes, Jamaican Jerk Chicken Bites, Black and White Cookies, “Spaghetti” Alfredo with Bacon and Caramelized Onions, Oreos, Mini Cheesecakes, the list goes on and on and I am certainly ready!

SAVORY SUNDAYSIf you have been here before you may already know that I love to entertain. I also love to prep meals in advance for the days ahead. Casseroles, in particular… totally missing from here! I have one bake, which I love and am now reminded that I need to make that dish way more often. They are pretty perfect for exactly what I love, having family and friends over for a nice brunch, and making a meal that last for a few days. 

Mexican Breakfast CasseroleTotally perfect. Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines, and I firmly believe it’s even better for breakfast.
