It feels good to indulge in breakfast. Not only in the caloric sense, but in the carefree sense too. To start the weekend off making a more elevated version of your typical scrambled eggs is immensely satisfying. It’s also nice to not always be in a rush—ya know?
It’s with this sense of laissez faire that I give you Mexican Baked Eggs with Pierogies! Grab a cup of coffee. Let’s chat.
What are Pierogies?
Pierogies are savory pasta pockets filled with fluffy potatoes, onions, and cheese or other flavorings. As part of my ongoing partnership with Mrs. T’s Pierogies I’ve been exploring new ways to cook up delicious pierogy creations. They are such an incredibly versatile ingredient. They can be baked, sautéed, simmered into soup, even grilled!
And they’re even great for a lazy breakfast too! The pierogies soak up all the flavors of the tomato sauce and are dreamy paired with a runny egg yolk. For this dish I used Mrs. T’s Jalapeño and Sharp Cheddar Pierogies, but any of their other varieties would be good here.
How to Make Mexican Baked Eggs?
Baked eggs have been the darling of the food world since shakshuka was born. Cracking an egg or four into a spicy little sauce and baking it in the oven is heavenly. If you’ve never made them before it’s something you should definitely try!
In our case we made a Ranchero-style sauce with toasted Guajillo chiles, charred tomatoes, and onions. It is a teensy bit spicy, but more like a mellow hum of heat. If you try it and love it, make it again and pour it over Huevos Rancheros or just a simple fried egg.
The sauce, as incredible as it is, also takes time to prepare. Making the sauce a day (or even three) in advance can help cut down on cooking time. Don’t forget to keep it covered in the fridge until you are ready to cook. However on days when you are in a rush or just too busy to be in the kitchen, a store-bought salsa would do the trick here.
This would be the perfect dish for a brunch with friends or a weekend breakfast with family. Try it this holiday season!
