Roasted Stuffed Breakfast Poblano

Now most that know me, know of this little tidbit….I don’t do breakfast.  At least willingly.  As a matter of fact, this morning out of sheer laziness and maybe a few too many glasses of wine last night, I opted for Jack n the Box for my breakfast hungry family.   JITB was my choice because the boys could have their breakfast Jacks while I ate a burger, fries and 2 tacos.  Yes, I ate all of that for the “most important meal of the day”.  You can call me disgusting in the comment section below.

ANYWAY, when you make any meal spicy with a Mexican twist I’ll give it a go!  This recipe is the happy medium winner that I made for my breakfast loving husband & boys….and myself.

The Starting Lineup 

•2 large poblanos
•1 cup potatoes (cubed or even hash brown style)
•4 eggs
•Breakfast sausage links (about 4-5)
•Tomato
•Green onions
•Red onion
•Jalapeño
•Cotija cheese
•Cilantro
•Salsa
•Salt & Pepper
•Cumin
•Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Coat poblanos lightly in olive oil and place on baking sheet under broiler, turning as they char. Once charred & bubbly place in paper bag (school lunch style) and close. Let rest for at least 15 min. You can also place peppers in bowl covered with Saran Wrap.

Meanwhile, add potatoes to a hot pan with a bit of oil & butter and season with a salt, pepper and cumin to taste. Let it get nice and crispy. Cook sausage links according to package (pan or even microwave) and slice into pieces.

While potatoes cook, dice all the veggies and prep the poblanos (peel the waxy skin off, it will come off easily, and carefully slice a slit on one side of pepper and scrape out seeds. Crack eggs into bowl and beat till frothy with a splash of milk.

Once potatoes are cooked, add the eggs right in same pan and scramble with potatoes. Also add in the cooked sausage, onions, tomatoes & jalapeños.

When eggs are almost cooked through take off heat and spoon mix into the peppers. Place filled poblanos on baking sheet and sprinkle the cotija cheese over top. Place in a 375* oven for about 10min.
Garnish with the cilantro and salsa 🙂
