Brunch is by far my favorite meal of the day. Right now, I am loving early football games because then I can combine my love of brunch foods with my love of tailgating/homegating.
Of course, as much as I love brunch, I L-O-V-E bacon. No brunch is complete with out it. Am I right?! Bacon is a primary ingredient in my Southwestern Egg Bake so I bet you are going to love it too.
When choosing a bacon, I always try to look for one that is thick sliced. It makes it great for just about any recipe whether you need whole slices or to crumble it.
This recipe is so great for weekly meal prep. You can make it on Sunday and then enjoy it all week long.
I use diced bell peppers and onions in my southwest egg bake but you can change that up if you prefer. Just be sure to choose vegetables that don’t have a high water content so it doesn’t water down the eggs.
Great times to enjoy this southwestern egg bake:
- Weekend brunch! Invite some friends over and make some pineapple ginger mimosas to go along with the egg bake!

Hi all! I’m doubling this recipe and would like to use a cake pan. Do I need to cook it on a higher temp for a longer time?
Shannah Coe says
My apologies but I just saw this. I would keep the temperature the same but you will need to cook it longer.
A very nice recipe. It looks great in the skillet and tastes very good. I added 2 more eggs and wished I had a rough idea on how much salt and pepper to add. Mine was a bit under-salted when done
