Please share

Simple to make but so full of flavor, this Tex-Mex sheet pan breakfast also makes a great dinner. Just chop the veggies and watch the magic happen!

Melissa’s Produce sent me produce for recipe development. As always opinions are honest and my own. 

This Tex-Mex style sheet pan meal is so versatile, adaptable and delicious. It is a nutritious way to start your day and it’s great for dinner as well.

It was definitely tempting to do all dessert recipes with the freaky fruit selection that Melissa’s Produce sent. But the chayote squash had my attention and it was begging to be made into something savory.

I have been loving sheet pan meals lately. Generally they are pretty low fuss to put together with minimal clean up afterwards too.

So I thought it would be fun to put together a Tex-Mex style sheet pan meal playing to the origins of the squash. After rifling through my pantry and fridge, inspiration struck.

I pulled out some of my favorite staples like black beans and chili powder. I had onions and peppers from our CSA, so they went in too.

After tossing in some cubed potatoes and the cubed chayote, we really had something going! Baddabing, baddaboom… dinner was in the oven.

The eggs get added a bit later to keep them from getting too dried out and rubbery. Just make them little nests and crack them right in.

Some diced tomatoes and cilantro added a fresh finish and a colorful garnish.  A little hot sauce on top was really good too! I was quite pleased with the results.

I wasn’t so sure what my husband would think though. Breakfast food isn’t his favorite any time and especially not for dinner.

He later admitted he had his doubts when he saw what I had made, but that didn’t stop him from going back for more. He ended up eating half the trayful!

This had my mom’s name written all over it, so I sent her a picture as well. She was immediately interested and declared she was not waiting for me to post the recipe, she needed it now.

Being the good daughter I am, I obliged and sent it over. She made a batch the next day subbing in sweet potatoes for the chayote.

She and my dad loved it. They have had it more times than us now. I guess we had better catch up!

Tips and tricks:

  • If you don’t have chayote, more potatoes or sweet potatoes are a good substitute.
  • I can also see cubes of butternut or buttercup squash being great 
  • You could meal prep this by making a tray of the vegetables ahead of time and just warming them and topping with a fried egg during the week.

I know this won't surprise you, but my husband does not approve of breakfast for dinner, and I have yet to change his view on this, but I continue to try!! I love this recipe, and have never baked eggs in the oven. Definitely trying this!
