Chilaquiles with Baked Tortillas

One of my favorite meals I had for the first time in the cafeteria when I worked at Mattel was Chilaquiles. I loved working at Mattel and the cafeteria was a huge perk. There were so many healthy options and it was so nice to be able to have delicious food without having to get in a car and drive somewhere. I always looked forward to the days Chilaquiles was the special on the menu. Traditionally a Mexican breakfast, Chilaquiles are often served with eggs but can also be seen as a lunch item on menus with chicken or carne asada. I finally decided to make them for breakfast and they were so delicious.

Bloody Mary Brunch

Bloody Mary Brunch Party

I love having people over for brunch and guests love skipping the long waits at the popular brunch spots so I came up with this new idea for hosting a Bloody Mary Brunch. What could be more fun than to create a serve yourself Bloody Mary bar for your guests? There are so many ways to get creative with a Bloody Mary. And, it’s easy to turn your Bloody Mary’s into the meal by including things like Sliders, BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Flavored Bacon, BBQ Bacon Wrapped Shrimp, and Pickled Eggs as garnishes. This is a special post I created just for the BevMo! Thirsty Times Blog. To see the full post with everything you need to host a Bloody Mary Brunch, click here.

Book Your Bacon Flight Now {Gluten Free & Paleo Recipe}

This is really just inspiration disguised as a recipe. I want to inspire you to change up your bacon. This is super easy and so fun. Great for when you have guests. I love bacon. Like syrup loves pancakes. Seriously, i’m obsessed. So when I went to Palm Springs last year for a girl’s weekend, I was super excited to be offered a flight of bacon at Cheeky’s, one of my favorite breakfast spots ever. Wine flight, champaign flight, beer flight, and now bacon flight. This is most definitely my kind of flight. If you like bacon as much as me, check out this blog, Bacon Unwrapped.

How to make a bacon flight

You could literally put anything on bacon and it would taste good. All of the flavors I made were really good but my favorites were the rosemary and jalapeño. The flavors at Cheeky’s were applewood smoked, apple cinnamon, black pepper, Thai sweet chile, and jalapeño. I would also try pineapple, mango, red chili pepper, sundried tomatoes, wasabi powder, or beer. The options are endless.

Here is all you need to do:

1. Place bacon on a piece of parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
2. Sprinkle or rub whatever you want on the bacon.
3. Place cookie sheet into a cold oven, set the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit, and set the timer for 20-25 minutes.

Mine was perfectly crispy and not burned at 20 minutes. I served the bacon with this awesome paleo pumpkin pancake recipe.

Thank you to Danielle of Against All Grain who posted the perfect bacon baking instructions on instagram.

Enjoy!

P.S. Here is a photo of what my flight looked like going into the oven.
