Spanish-Style Breakfast Bake Recipe

Where I live in Texas, there are a lot of Mexican and Spanish influences in the local cooking. This interesting combination of rice, chili sauce, eggs and green peppers really adds some punch to your breakfast.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 55 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cooked long grain rice
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 12 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled, divided
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup bottled chili sauce
  • 12 eggs
  • 12 thinly sliced green pepper rings

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the rice, 1-1/2 cups cheese, 1/2 cup bacon, tomato sauce and chili sauce. Pat firmly into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
  • 2. Using the back of a spoon, make twelve 2-in. wells in the rice mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
