Spicy Cajun Breakfast Bake + Cajun Boogie

Here's an easy recipe for one of my family's favorite breakfasts. It is packed with flavor and is sure to please your family and guests. You can also get creative with it and use any ingredients that you have on hand. For example, you could substitute 2 links of sliced, cooked sausage for the bacon. I like to serve this delicious breakfast dish with my Jalapeno Cheese Grits, and Grandma's Buttermilk Biscuits. (links below) Bon appetit!

Spicy Cajun Breakfast Bake

6 slices bread (any kind), torn into pieces
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp, and drained and crumbled
6 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup milk or half and half
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
1/2 cup pickled jalapenos
1 cup shredded cheese, (any kind)
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
Few shakes Tabasco

Saute the onions and bell peppers in the butter for 5 minutes.

In large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, veggies, hot sauce, and seasoning. Stir in the jalapenos and bacon.

Transfer to a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking dish and top with the cheese. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 25 to 30 minutes or until set and a knife comes out clean.

Here's a little clip that my friend Bill took recently at a pre Mardi Gras party at Fred's Lounge in Mamou, Louisiana. Fred's is a local Cajun landmark and is known for it's Saturday morning dances. Johnny Sonnier and Cajun Revue were rockin' this crowd! Let the good times roll, cher!

Wishing you all a fab and fun weekend! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!

Really fancy a bacon cheese grit.
That fella playing the accordion looks familiar, somehow

YUM! Love my grits! Didn't go anywhere this Sat. a.m. as more snow's coming. Saw snow falling in Baton Rouge on national news last night.
