UCF Saturday Knights Tailgate

With the UCF Football season right around the corner, we are bound to have a few early kickoffs. Last year I was on a low carb diet trying to drop a few pounds before the Disney half marathon and I concocted a great base recipe that I then built a few recipes upon for breakfast tailgates

Base Ingredients:

  • 6 large or extra large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • pepper to taste

Mix all of these ingredients in a bowl using a whisk. Let some air incorporate into the mix. You could then just place this into a pie tin and bake (you could also use a pre-made crust if you aren’t carb watching) at 350 for about 20 minutes or until the bake seems to firm up. The fun part about this recipe though is you can make it into anything you want. Here are a few of my favorites.

Buffalo Chicken

  • 1-2 cup(s) shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Wing Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Mix these ingredients into the base mixture, add to the pie tin and follow the same baking instructions. You may want to leave it in for closer for 30 minutes because of the extra moisture.

Jalapeno Popper

  • 6-8 Jalapenos, seeded and diced (leave the ribs on if you want more heat)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 block of cream cheese

Mix the jalapeno and cheddar cheese into you base mix and add it to the pie tin. Take small amounts of the cream cheese and place throughout the egg mixture and then bake for 25-30 minutes or until the mixture solidifies.

There are a ton of different things you could do with this very basic egg bake recipe. I have also done a few of the more basic breakfast combinations like ham and swiss, western omelet and bacon-cheddar. Have some suggestions? Leave them in the comments.
