Cheesy Chorizo Breakfast Bake

9 oz. Pork Chorizo
4 oz. Onion - Thinly sliced
2 Tbs. Butter
2 Tbs. Garlic - Minced
6 Eggs
2/3 Cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese - Shredded
1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese - Grated
4 oz. Cream Cheese
4 oz. Cremini Mushrooms - Sliced
Salt and Pepper - To taste
(2 Tbs. Peace and Love)
***optional toppings - sour cream and green onions***

In a large saute pan over low-medium heat, saute sliced onions in butter and garlic.  Saute until onions are nice and caramelized - About 20 minutes

At the same time, in a second saute pan, saute the chorizo and mushrooms over medium heat until the chorizo is cooked all the way through and the mushrooms are tender.

Remove excess grease from chorizo, reduce heat to low and mix in cream cheese until well combined. Add chorizo mixture to the caramelized onion and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Crack eggs into a large mixing bowl and fork whisk.  Mix in sharp cheddar and Parmesan cheese.

Preheat oven to 350°

In an 8 x 8 glass baking dish, pour chorizo mixture into the bottom of it.  Pour the egg/cheese mixture on top.        Mix just slightly until some of the chorizo shows through the egg layer.

Bake uncovered, on the middle rack for 30 minutes.  Serve and enjoy!
