Bloody Mary Breakfast Bake

Well being back at work after 18 months is beyond exhausting. The main thing is I am now in an office job! Haven’t had an office job for 7 years! I LOVED my last job, I worked from home on my schedule. It was wonderful. But alas, our economy had other ideas. Either way I am now in my first week back and I’m so tired every night I barely have time to read emails. I am going to do my best to get the blog done without fail though. I’m sure once I get back in a routine I will be fine. But till then please bear with me! Thanks.

Ok, this recipe I found in a Rachael Ray magazine but it’s also a recipe from CorningWare. I have not made this yet but it looks pretty easy and I plan to do this next time I have brunch or company stay over on the weekend. I love a good Bloody Mary so this sounded intriguing. No there is no vodka in it but that doesn’t mean you can’t make an actual Bloody Mary to go with it!  It’s an easy recipe so give it a try. I will swap out the photo once I make it myself! The recipe says to use a 1.5 quart square casserole but you can use a longer one also.

Photo is for illustrative purposes only


8 slices soft light white sandwich bread, crusts removed

3 cups shredded pepper jack cheese

9 large eggs (or egg substitute 2¼ cups)

2 cups low-milk or fat-free half-and-half

½ teaspoon celery salt

1 jar salsa (16 ounces), your choice


1. Grease a 1.5 quart square casserole dish. Arrange 2½ slices of bread in the bottom of the dish. Sprinkle 1/3 cup shredded cheese on top and cover with another 2½ slices of bread.

2. Layer on another 1/3 cup shredded cheese and top with the final 3 pieces of bread.

3. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk and celery salt. Pour over the bread layer; let stand.

4. Bake in a 375º oven for 40-45 minutes, then cover with salsa, sprinkle with remaining pepper jack cheese and bake for 5 minutes more.

5. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Bloody Mary Chicken

This is another recipe courtesy of Anna at The Spice and Tea Exchange in Stuart, Florida. Anna has raved about this recipe ever since I met her and I am finally going to try it tonight.  I will post a picture of it as well as how it tastes either tonight or tomorrow. It seems like a very easy recipe and can be served with rice, pasta or a vegetable.

Bloody Mary Chicken


Bloody Mary Mix Seasoning Packet

Tomato Juice

4 large boneless chicken breasts (or any other chicken part you like)

olive oil


1. Place chicken pieces in a Ziploc bag. Pour tomato juice over the chicken to cover.

2. Sprinkle Bloody Mary mix into the bag with chicken and tomato juice until it looks like a Bloody Mary. Marinate 1 hour or longer, even all day.

3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Remove chicken pieces from the bag and sauté until brown.

4. Once the chicken pieces are browned on both sides, add the tomato juice mixture to the skillet. Lower heat to medium and cook for 20 minutes.

**If you cannot get a hold of a Bloody Mary Seasoning packet you can always substitute a pre-made bloody mary mix for the seasoning and tomato juice.

Bloody Mary Chicken w/Jasmine Brown Rice and Green Beans


The verdict is in! We love the Bloody Mary Chicken! It was so moist and zesty and spicy, but not too spicy! I had jasmine brown rice and green beans as sides. John put a little sour cream on top of his which was good as well. BUT, of course I did change the recipe slightly. I had real bloody mary mix leftover from the weekend and I used that to marinate the chicken and topped it off with V-8. Still delicious! I will make it again. It was easy, quick and good for you!

Andrea’s Bloody Marys

Time for the weekend yet again! Hooray! Nobody ever really thinks about drinking too much but we’ve all done it and regretted it the next morning. Especially as we get older! It seems like it takes longer to recover the next day! Well my recipe for Bloody Marys will help with that fuzzy hangover feeling the next morning, or afternoon. Friends and family have laughed at us when we insist on making bloody marys to help with a hangover. But after just one drink the fog has lifted from the brain and you start to feel human again. It really works! I always make a large pitcher of these because they are so good and will last a while even if you don’t drink them all the same day. I also like to garnish with celery and pickled green beans. I first tried the green bean garnish when we were in New Orleans a few years ago.  My measurements are approximate as I never really measure when I make these. Give it a try! This recipe will make about 6 drinks depending on the size of your glasses, sometimes more. It’s not an exact science so have fun experimenting!


1 bottle of Spicy V8 vegetable juice

1 cup citron vodka (plain is fine if you don’t have citron)

juice of  1 lime

juice of 1 lemon

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (I use Spicy Tabasco Worcestershire)

1-2 tsp celery salt

2 heaping tablespoons prepared horseradish (NOT the sauce)

Few dashes of garlic Tabasco sauce

celery stalks (washed and trimmed, with or without the leaves) for garnish

pickled green beans for garnish (they come in a jar)

green olives w/pimento for garnish

sliced lemon and lime for garnish

seasoned salt for rims of glasses (I use Spicy Tabasco Salt)


Large pitcher

Short or tall glasses


1. Put enough ice in bottom of pitcher to cover about 1/4 of the pitcher. Add the V8, vodka, lime and lemon juices, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, horseradish, and Tabasco sauce to the pitcher. You can put cut up pieces of lemon and limes in as well. Stir well.

2. With a little lemon or lime juice rim the glasses. Place the seasoned salt on a flat plate, just enough for the rims of the glasses. Then dip the glasses into the salt so the edges are covered to your liking. Add ice to the glasses. (4-5 cubes is good or more if you like)

3. Add the bloody mary mix to the glasses and put in a celery stalk and green bean. Put an olive on a toothpick and place on top of drink. Garnish glass with a lime or lemon slice. Pop in a straw and you’re good to go!

** Many of the seasonings I use are from the Tabasco company. The spicy salt and Worcestershire sauce I have only found on their website so far. The stores don’t seem to carry the items yet. The green beans can be found almost anywhere, just keep an eye open. If the horseradish is too much for you just add less. The V8 is great because you get your veggies this way too! It’s a medicinal drink!
