    2.5  c shredded potatoes (hash browns)

  • 1 package SOY chorizo
  • 2 c shredded cheddar/jack cheese
  • 2 jalapenos cut as “rajas”
  • 1/2 large red onion
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • Olive oil
  • 8 large eggs beaten
  • 1/2 c sour cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt/pepper to taste

Pre-heat oven to 350 F and sprinkle olive oil in bottom of an 8″ square glass baking dish.  Place potatoes in bottom and salt and pepper the potatoes.  Layer 1/3 cheese over potatoes.  Place grated zucchini next.  Sprinkle onions and rajas over zucchini.  Layer 1/3 cheese next.  Spread the SOY chorizo over the cheese.

Mix eggs and sour cream together.  Add milk, salt/pepper, pour over the casserole.  Sprinkle last 1/3 of the cheese and red peppers on top and bake for 45 min. Cover with foil if the top is getting to brown for the last 10-15 min.  Let set for 15-20 minutes before cutting and serving. Cut in 4 quarters and then diagonally to create triangular servings.  Serves 8.

This is a protein packed veggie dish and I no longer use pork soyrizo in anything I make – the SOY version is just as tasty and so much healthier – even the meat eaters in your family will love this dish!
