Mexican Breakfast Braid

Check out this amazing Mexican Breakfast Braid from Flavors By Four. It caught my eye at Weekend Potluck, and I knew I had to make it and SOON!

  I have never worked with Chorizo sausage before. It’s a bit greasier than I expected, but after draining it, it was no problem!  And talk about flavorful! It made this recipe so unique in taste.  Almost like taco seasoned sausage!

I know this looks complicated, but it really is not! Destiny helped me make this one……

Mexican Breakfast Braid 2 txt


  • 1 can {8 Oz} Pillsbury Seamless Dough
  • 5 whole Large Eggs
  • 10 ounces, weight Pork Chorizo
  • 2 whole Jalapenos Diced
  • 4 Tablespoons Red Pepper, Diced
  • 1-½ cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • Sour Cream

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 375*. Lay out dough to begin to bring to room temperature while you fry up your sausage.
Chop with your spatula as you cook your Chorizo, then drain. Using the same skillet, scramble 5 eggs with salt and pepper.
Spread dough out on a cookie sheet or baking stone and cut strips up each side, leaving the center 4 inches untouched. Sprinkle cheese down center, followed by eggs, meat, one or both peppers, and more cheese.
Taking cut strips of dough, gently stretch and crisscross along the entire length of dough, tucking in as you go.
Bake for 15 minutes, serve hot with sour cream garnish.

Enjoy your yummy breakfast!
