Whole30 Huevos Rancheros Crustless Quiche

Just in Time for September Whole30! This Whole30 Compliant Huevos Rancheros Crustless Quiche is my new favorite. I could say that about all the recipes I share, but truly *in a Chris Harrison Voice* “The most delicious recipe in Eating at Altitude History – On the blog today!” My apologies – I’m back in the throws of Bachelor/Bachelorette season.

I’ve always been a savory breakfast kind of girl, and Huevos Rancheros tends to be my go-to if I see it on a breakfast menu. The deal-sealer for me? The sauce…it’s all about the sauce. I love a good red enchilada drizzle. But with that being said, finding a sugar free or Whole30 compliant enchilada sauce can be a tall task. Whole Foods’ ‘Organic 365’ brand has a compliant version (pictured below) but it is truly the only one I have ever found on the market…so I took matters into my own hands put a spin on a recipe from Against All Grain.  Not only is making your own sauce more cost effective, it can be easily stored in the freezer for easy grab-and-go leftovers.

I find this makes for a perfect Sunday dish, and it’s especially useful when serving a crowd. My sister is getting married next weekend and my mom is hosting a houseful of relatives (myself included). Naturally, I volunteered to help with meals amidst all the chaos next week, and this easy dish will definitely be on the menu for our visitors! I love hosting & will snatch up any opportunity to cook for a crowd. The next time you need to feed friends or family members at brunch-time, give it a try!
