Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole is a family favorite with eggs, two types of cheese and mild green chiles!
Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole is a family, neighbor and Pinterest favorite! One of my most viewed and pinned recipes is can now be your family favorite as well! Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole uses 2 pounds of cheese, yes TWO! It is super cheesy, but bakes nicely into the egg to add flavor and texture rather than being stringy.
While it is one of my most favorite recipes, I try to only make it when we have guests in town due to the copious amounts of cheese. It is perfect for feeding large groups. The chile is mild enough to not be spicy and it also pleases any vegetarian friends. If you need some meat on the side, make my Candied Bacon!
The original recipe for Chile Relleno Breakfast Casserole calls for whole green chiles, however these seem to be becoming more and more difficult to find. You can substitute 3 4.5-ounce cans of chopped green chiles by draining them and then setting on a paper towel lined plate to reduce moisture. I use a mild chile, but you can, of course, also pick a hot variety.
Instead of using “fingers of cheese” to stuff, chop into 2 inch cubes. If I am feeding more than 12, I add a few more eggs with no need to change the amount of any other ingredients.
