Ingredients:

6 cups chicken broth
2 cups celery, chopped
2 cups onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4-1/2 cup of Campbells Candied Jalapeños, chopped
1/4 cup cream
2 lbs of shredded mixed cheddar/colby blend
2 tablespoons of flour

Directions:

Saute the garlic, celery and onion until soft in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. (We like using a Jalapeno Olive Oil). Add chopped candied jalapeños and flour. Cook for about 3 minutes stirring all the time. Then add the chicken broth slowly whisking while bringing it to a simmer for 2 minutes. Slowly stir in the grated cheese and then add the cream. Add some of the brine of candied jalapeños to kick up the flavor even more!

Top each serving with a little shredded cheese. Very easy and tasty! 🙂

Breakfast With a Kick Casserole

Image

Ingredients:

1/2 cup. of candied jalapeños, chopped

12 large eggs

1 lb. of bacon, cooked and broken up

1 lb. sausage cooked, and crumbled ( I like Italian sausage ) 

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

1 cup milk

6 slices of bread

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. white pepper

1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/2 cup red and green bell pepper, chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325°. Grease a 11 x 13 baking dish. Place bread slices over the bottom of the dish, don’t overlap. Mix together eggs and milk with a whisk until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Add rest of the ingredients and pour over the bread.  

Bake 20 – 30 minutes, until lightly browned. Slice and serve

This is an easy breakfast dish for a group of people.  I fix this the night before and pop it in the oven the next morning. The dish will take a least an extra 45 minutes to cook when cold.
