I woke up this morning and immediately thought about breakfast. I’m not a “breakfast person”. I usually have to make a conscious decision to put a bagel in the toaster and slather it with cream cheese before heading out the door. More often, I throw some instant oatmeal into my purse and sometimes make it at the office when I’m hungry. Cup o’ coffee & I’m good to go. But today was different. I had a recipe in mind.
I found this video online about two weeks ago and it’s been on my to do list ever since. Bacon-Wrapped Eggs
So I headed to the store for all the necessary ingredients:
- carton of eggs
- package of bacon
- shredded cheddar cheese
- chives (or any kind of herb)
- and HUNGER …which was easy
I may or may not have bought ingredients for cookies ‘n cream brownies as well… shhh!
The recipe is very simple. Brown the bacon but avoid making it crispy like you normally would. Create cups o’ bacon on the muffin pan. Crack an egg and plop each one into the cup o’ bacon.
Top with the cheese of your choice.
I used a combination of feta, colby jack, and shredded cheddar cheese. The feta was a risk, but it turned out delicious.
Heat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the eggs for 15 minutes or until set.
And wait patiently (or not so patiently in the pup’s case)…
Amazing, right? So simple, so rich, so delicious.
Consume with cup of fresh orange juice and cup o’ joe.
