Although I think the "Bloody Mary" reference is a little bit of a stretch, this little brunch treat could be called anything and it would still be delicious! The eggs bake up light and fluffy, the cheese adds some gooey goodness, and you can pick your favorite salsa to add the perfect amount of spice. Plus, its super easy to put together. We'll definitely be having this again.
