What I Made This Week – South West Eggs and Blue Cheese Cauliflower

Oh my God, that title doesn’t sound very appetizing.  And, don’t worry, I didn’t eat them at the same time.  Cauliflower I was trying because I want to try some new sides for Thanksgiving and the eggs will be breakfast for the week.

Lazy Southwest Egg Bake

I didn’t follow a recipe for the egg bake, but for you rule followers, here’s my best guess at how I made this:

Lazy Southwest Egg Bake

8 eggs

1/2 jar of salsa

1 can black beans

1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

salt and pepper to taste

1. Preheat oven to 375

2.  Grease an 8×8 pan with butter

3.  Crack the eggs into the pan, add the salsa, beans, salt and pepper and whip together with a fork

4.  Stir in cheese

5.  Bake for 25 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown on top

This was so easy and very tasty.  I love the added protein of the black beans and salsa counts in my book as a veggie, so a pretty well rounded, low carb meal.

Roasted Blue Cheese Cauliflower

This, I sort of adapted from this recipe.  I left out the milk and flour and basically I just added the spices and sprinkled it with a good 1/2 cup of blue cheese.  I added some chili powder, too.  And it came out super delicious.  I don’t believe that I will be serving this one at Thanksgiving because not everyone in the world loves blue cheese like I do.  But I’ll serve it to me any time I want.  And my kids ate it, too.
