Lazy Chili Rellenos and Breakfast Potatoes

"Make My Meal, Make My Morning!"
Kicking off with Joanne's Recipe for...

Lazy Chili Rellenos and
Breakfast Sweet Potatoes

I decided to sub pan-fried potatoes and oven-roast them instead. Mix one cubed sweet potato with olive oil, basil, salt and pepper. Preheat oven to 375F and bake for 45 min.

The Lazy Rellenos:

In a baking dish layer 2 large green chili pepper
 (I used Poblanos), and spread about 1/2 cup of cheese
 over top (I used Quark Cheese).

In a separate bowl, whisk 2 eggs and 1/2 cup egg whites.
 Chop in 3/4 cup onion and spices; salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, thyme, and sage to your liking. Add in 1 cup spinach
 and 1 cup kale. Mix together.

**Pour the egg mixture on top of your cheesy green peppers.

Top it off with any extra green pepper pieces and a little extra cheese, baking for 35 min at 350F.

I adapted and changed this recipe
around a bit to add more greens, different spices, and
more egg whites vs. whole eggs. Both recipes are fabulous,
so make sure to check out Joanne's original version :)

Oh I love that. You made me want to do eggs for breakfast again soon...

Who am I kidding? I'll probably have them for dinner... ha ha

I hope the breakfast was the start of a lovely day for you! :)

How come I never have breakfasts like these?! A few days ago, I grabbed a dry piece of toast while running out the door. This has inspired me to not sleep in until the last possible second so that I can too can have some delicious rellenos :)

YUM! That looks crazy good! For me that would be the perfect dinner! Love the additional greens!!!

omg that's for sure a breakfast I want to try making ASAP!!! Or... when I'm moved into a new house and can buy groceries instead of trying to use up everything in the house :)

Wow! That's quite a breakfast! WOOOO!

This would be the way to start my day. I think that breakfast potatoes would only be about ten times better with sweet potatoes (and I loved how you oven roasted them). Your modified chile rellenos looked yummy too...and so much easier than the traditional dinner entree.

Mmm this looks like a fantastic savoury breakfast! Sweet potatoes are the best.

This is my kind of breakfast. Sweet potatoes? My 2nd favorite food. Greens for breakfast? A genius idea that no one does enough.

You are amazing. Joanne is too! You take the best food photography..I need your secrets ;-)

All this food looks UNREAL!!! I'm coming for breakfast, lunch and dinner....even if I need to fly all the way to Canada for it ;-)


Hannah said... [reply]

I've never had Chili Rellenos - must be because we lack the Hispanic influence on our food here in Australia. It looks so good though - I think I'm going to have to change that!

Autumn @ Good Eats Girl said... [reply]

Chile rellenos are one of my favorite dishes....this looks amazing!!!

I'm all about breakfast for dinner, and I think that would fit the bill!

I have a lot of admiration for people who can enjoy breakfasts like these, because I can't seem to stray from my bowl of oats. I tried the whole savory breakfast thing a few times, but it just feels so wrong! I like my days to start out on a sweet note, but this looks like something I'd love to have for lunch or dinner :)

Clean Eating Chelsey said... [reply]

it sounds delicious... unfortnately, I CAN'T SEE IT!! :(


Everything was cleared up the other day and i was able to see things again, but now I can't even see your mexican fiesta. Laaaaaame.

Oh well, it still sounds delicious.. but there is NO WAY I could ever wait over 30 minutes for my breakfast.

This looks delicious! I love that even though you're branching out, your breakfast still had lots of kale and sweet potatoes -- sounds perfect for you. :)

Chelsea said... [reply]

Aww your pictures stopped showing up again! This sounds delicious though! Like a healthier version of those breakfast skillets you can get at diners. :D

Brandi said... [reply]

Unknown said... [reply]

I'm lovin' the savory breakfast :D Dare I say...I'm getting a *little* tired of sweet oatmeal every morning??

Oh, and I roasted some sweet potatoes the other day and I remember that you always put a bunch of different spices including oregano on yours. So I did that and it was uhhhmazingggg

Anonymous said... [reply]

I made sweet potato hash the other day. Sweet potatoes are such a filling breakfast option!

IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!!! I CAN SEE - I CAN SEE - I CAN SEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hbobier said... [reply]

That's so weird that you made Sweet Potatoes. I mean, I feel like you just never do that...

Looks like some fantastic eats, as always!!

Anonymous said... [reply]

That breakfast looks RIDICULOUS. I want. I pretty much sub sweet potatoes for regular potatoes whenever I can, they make the world go round if you ask me!

Anonymous said... [reply]

Hi love,
That looks so good! But maybe a bit of a lengthy process in the morning? My mornings don't usually leave me with enough time to wait for anything to bake (which is why I've never done baked oatmeal) but I'm glad you tried this and enjoyed it. And I love your idea for a contest! So cute. Can't wait to see what else you cooked up.

Joanne said... [reply]

Yay! I'm so glad you liked this! It's definitely one of my favorite breakfasts. And I love your changes. Roasted sweet potatoes are a must!

We Are Not Martha said... [reply]

Umm those chili rellenos look amazing!!!! Of course, the sweet potatoes do too. Basically, I would die for that plate right now :)
