Chile Relleno Breakfast Bake

This would be a nice meal to have on New Year’s Day watching the Rose Parade or football games. Serve it with some chunky salsa. I’m cutting the recipe in half and making it to enjoy while watching the Rose Parade today. Interesting fact about the Rose Parade and Rose Bowl game, it always happens on January 1st unless January 1st lands on a Sunday. When January 1st lands on a Sunday the parade and game are moved to January 2nd. Today is the day.

Another note of interest is the next time Christmas lands on a Sunday will be 2033. New Year’s Day will be on a Sunday in 2034.

  1. This looks delicious Ellen! Our family loves spicy foods. I will give this a try! And interesting facts about the next time we will celebrate Christmas and New Year’s Day on Sunday! Happy New Year’s to you!

  2. Dear Eileen, Happy and Healthy New Year! This looks delicious and with wonderful flavors. I did not know that fact about Christmas and New Years being on a Sunday again so far along in the future–I hope I’m still around to celebrate!

  3. Oooh, I remember a similar recipe with poblanos (roomie’s favorite pepper) and may need to revisit it (roomie can’t do fresh milk ingredients like sour cream). Love all the flavors of eggs, cheese, and poblanos/green chiles.
