Chiles Rellenos Egg and Cheese Bake

It is time again to showcase Farmer Kim’s eggs…and what better way to do it than with an egg and cheese bake?  This recipe is adapted from a chiles rellenos quiche from Cooking Jewish by Judy Bart Kancigor.  I often make this during Passover, but it is good for a light dinner or brunch at any time of year.

I like making this as a light dinner and then having the leftovers for breakfast the next day. I like mine even more when topped with salsa to add more heat to it.
