Mexican Breakfast Casserole #SundaySupper - Food That Travels Well

Summer for many means long, lazy days at the pool or by the beach, picnics at the park and especially summer vacation! That usually means being away from home a lot and eating on the go. Stay away from the drive through and save money from eating out at restaurants by bringing along some travel friendly foods. This week at Sunday Supper we have put our heads together to bring you a nice list of our favorite, travel worthy snacks, sides, main dishes and of course desserts!


I made this Mexican Breakfast Casserole for my brother in law when his wife, my husbands older sister passed away last year. I'll always remember how very grateful he and his young son, our nephew were to receive it and the smile it put on their faces. I can't imagine loosing a mother {wife} who is the heart of the home and usually, as in their case the main cook.


Casseroles are the ultimate comfort food for a reason, they are hearty, piping hot and full of feel good belly foods like potatoes, cheeses and meats. Who doesn't like a home cooked casserole every once and a while? Not only do they inspire memories of home, comfort and happiness but they are very versatile, easy to make and especially easy to pack up and take to a friend, family member or neighbor in need. 

What is your favorite comfort food? 

What do you like to bring with you to snack on when you travel?

What are your favorite foods to bring to a potluck?



TIME          45 MINUTES               SERVES        6-8


4 medium size russet potatoes (or 1, 1 pound bag frozen, shredded potatoes)

10 large, free range, Organic eggs

10 ounces chorizo or spicy sausage

2 cups Jack cheese (or Mexican style cheese)

1 cup of your favorite salsa
1 tablespoon butter to grease casserole dish
sliced green onion and cilantro to garnish

Preheat your oven to 400F

In a medium size pan, cook sausage until browned. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk the eggs. Add salsa and stir to combined. Grease a casserole dish with the butter. Add the frozen potatoes and then pour the egg mixture over the top evenly. Top with the shredded cheese. 

Bake uncovered at 400F for 35-40 minutes. The top should be golden brown. Let cool a bit then serve with chopped green onion and cilantro on top. If serving for dinner I like to add sliced radish and lettuce.

Twelve Classic and Breathtakingly Creative Ice Cream Soda's for National Soda Day #icecream

It just so happens to be National Ice Cream Float Day, and just in the nick of time! It got me to thinking, I don't make ice cream oriented desserts near often enough, and why not?!! I mean honestly, it's in the triple digits here in the Valley of the Sun and if I have to resort to an ice cold, bubbly ice cream float to turn my frown upside down than gosh darn it , that's what I'm going to do!

Calories be damned!!! Bring on the floats! Here are 12 of the most beautifully tempting ice cream floats I could find and I'll be dreaming of them every night until I can get my hands on them. A girl's gotta have a mission in life. 

Red White and Blue Italian Soda

Cherry Almond Egg Cream with Home Made Cherry Syrup



Creamy Rotisserie Chicken and Mushroom Pasta #WeekdaySupper

When the last thing you want to do is cook dinner after a long day, this is the dinner for you. Using a rotisserie chicken puts this dinner on the table quicker than take out but presents like you slaved away for hours in the kitchen. Throw in a simple side salad and Monday night dinner is in the bag! Did I mention that it's made using creamy Greek yogurt, a bit of sour cream and freshly grated Parmesan instead of fat laden mayonnaise? Healthy, happy and simple.



Patriotic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches

Celebrate this Fourth of July with these Patriotic Ice Cream Cookie Sandwiches. They will make the perfect cool treat for your backyard BBQ. Let the kids help you make them for extra fun!



Red White and Blue Power Smoothies {secret sources of protein}

We pretty much live by the 'smoothies are a necessity of life rule' around here year round, but especially during the summer.  I mean, when your 5 year old daughter puts her little hand on her little hip and says to you as patiently as a 5 year old can "Did you know that we are out of power greens to make smoothies???" You can be pretty sure that smoothies are big deal. 



Grilled Mediterranean Salmon Burgers with Tzatziki and a Wine Pairing #SundaySupper

These Grilled Salmon Burgers with flavors from the warm and beautiful Mediterranean take just a few minutes to throw together, leaving you plenty of time to spend outdoors by the pool with your family and friends. A nice cool glass of Pinot Noir is my favorite wine pairing with these grilled salmon burgers. Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine, much less bold than a cabernet, and  provides a smooth and light finish with aromas of cherry and sweet fruit flavors.

Chunky Applesauce Zucchini Oat Cakes

Sure you could make a loaf of bread out of these apple cakes but what fun would that be? You can find cute, disposable mini cake baking pans at most craft stores. The kids thought they were getting an extra special treat. Little did they know that they had zucchini in them and very little sugar. 




Creamy Coconut, Roasted Strawberry Chocolate Chip Popsicles #SundaySupper

 Fantastic treats don't have to be complicated or overly sweet. Take these creamy coconut, strawberry popsicles with bits of cacao nibs in every bite. They have just 5 ingredients in them and can be made in time to satisfy your sweet tooth emergencies. 

This weeks Sunday Supper is all about keeping it simple in the kitchen. We all love that idea during the lazy days of summer right? Everyone over at Sunday Supper is sharing their favorite drinks, appetizers, snacks, lunches, dinners and treats that have 5 ingredients or less!!! We've basically got your simple summer treats and eats covered.



Honey Dijon Avocado Dressing #RecipeRedux

You can skip the salad dressing aisle at the grocery store from now on, I've got some big news for you. Making your own salad dressings and dips are so ridiculously simple and taste so much better that you'll be kicking yourself for buying the jarred stuff. If simplicity and taste haven't convinced you, how about the cost? Pennies on the dollar. You can make several different types of dressings and dips to suite your cravings using stuff you most likely already have in your fridge and cupboard.
