Slice of egg bandito with two sausage pattiesAh, Eggs Bandito! This is one of the Inn’s favorite Mexican style egg dishes.  It is flavorful, but not too spicy, and comes together quickly.

As far as egg based breakfast dishes go, this is one of the  Assistant Innkeeper’s personal favorites.  In fact, Liz made it when her adult kids recently stayed here at Grape Arbor and they loved it.  Liz  loves it because it is easy to make and it is a pleasant surprise to the palate with the slight tang of fresh lime and toasted cumin.

This recipe hails from the Heceta Head Lighthouse B and B featured in their Lighthouse Breakfast Cookbook.
