Who Needs McD’s Breakfast

2 Oct

…when you can come to my house?

Weekend breakfast isn’t usually a big to-do in our house, especially in the warmer months. It’s usually greek yogurt, some fruit or toast on the fly. But as the weather has turned a little cooler, there’s less pressure to get outside and soak up the sun… so our mornings have slowed down a little. We’ve been loving quiet mornings catching up on our shows from the past week, and chowing down on possibly the easiest morning meal since cereal & milk:

Breakfast sammies!

They are so delicious, and incredibly easy to make. All it takes is: 20 minutes, a cupcake pan, english muffins, eggs & cheese!

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350.
Step 2: Take a cupcake pan, and spray the interior of the number of muffins you want.
Step 3: Crack 1 egg into each sprayed cup. Do not add cheese yet!
Step 4: Optional: Sprinkle with pepper/salt/whatever you want. We use Black & Red spice by Penzeys, which adds a kick.
Step 5: When oven is heated, place panย  in oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Step 6: If you want to add cheese, remove pan at 15 minutes and sprinkle cheese in each cup. Return to oven for 3-5 more minutes. This would also be when to start the toaster for the english muffins ๐Ÿ™‚ If you don’t want cheese, cook for 18-20 minutes until yolk is solid.
Step 7: Remove pan and let cool for 1-2 mins.
Step 8: Take a knife and circle the interior edge of each cup. They should lift right out!
Step 9: Place on toasted english muffin & enjoy (we put a little butter on the muffin first since they can get pretty crispy).

eggs in the pan, ready for the oven!

all done! they look much prettier before the cheese falls.


Happy Fall!

    These look yummy! Another easy way is to cook the eggs in a small bowl in the microwave for 45 sec to 1 minute. Tom’s Grandpa Connell taught me this secret ๐Ÿ™‚
