Huevos Rancheros

Sautè onions with olive oil in large skillet over medium heat until translucent, then add salsa. Add chopped green chilies and optional spices. Bring to simmer, reduce heat to low and stir occasionally for ten minutes. Heat tortillas by coating a separate pan with olive oil, then cooking for a minute or two on each side. Keep warm in oven at 150 degrees. Fry eggs using the same skillet used for tortillas by adding butter over medium-high heat. Cook eggs for three to four minutes for runny yolks, longer for firmer eggs. To serve, spoon sauce onto a plate. Top with warmed tortilla, then egg. Top with more sauce and cilantro.

In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, salt and pepper together until smooth. Pour mixture over the bread and gently toss to coat.

Dei Fratelli Tomato Brunch Casserole - Tomato Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil and shingle bacon on top. Place bacon in oven and bake for 10 minutes. Bacon should be crispy with fat rendered. Cool to room temperature and chop. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Add the breakfast sausage to the skillet and brown the meat until crispy. Remove the sausage bits from the pan and reserve. In the same pan, add chopped onion and cook until translucent with brown edges and crunchy bits. Combine the reserved fat, chopped bacon, sausage, drained tomato, onions, black pepper and torn English muffins in a big bowl. Toss to incorporate all ingredients. Place 1/3 of the mixture in a 9 x 13 inch casserole. Add 2 slices of cheese, then the remaining casserole mixture, top with the remainder of the cheese. Pour the reserved tomato juice evenly over the finished casserole. Place in the oven and bake for 15 -18 min. While the casserole is baking heat two quarts of water and the vinegar to a simmer. Once simmering, carefully swirl the water and add the eggs one at a time. Cook 7 minutes. Top casserole with poached eggs.
