Breakfast Made Easy


One of my sweet friends shared with me something she's been doing to make breakfast easier at her house and shared it with me to share with you guys!  Thanks, Courtney!  This is going to make back-to-school so much easier and healthier at my house.  I've been known to eat a few pop-tarts in my days!  Here's to a dozen easier mornings!



All you need is a carton of eggs, 12 english muffins, 12 slices of canadian bacon, and 12 slices of cheddar cheese to make yummier, healthier breakfast sandwiches that you can freeze and then pop in the microwave for a minute and you are out the door!



Just whisk up your dozen eggs and then pour them into a non-stick or greased muffin pan.  People have told me you can just crack each egg into it's own muffin slot, but I prefer to whisk mine first.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  DO NOT OVERCOOK!  Otherwise you'll have rubber eggs!



Layer the egg, cheese and canadian bacon in the english muffin, wrap up with plastic warp and put them in a ziploc for even more freezer protection and throw those babies in the freezer.  Seriously easy prep!  

Defrost overnight in the fridge before heating--this gives the egg more time to defrost, otherwise when you heat in the microwave, you may end up with a frozen egg still.  When you are ready to eat them,  just pop one into the microwave for about a minute and that should do it.  They are around 300 calories depending on what products you buy.  And you know it's much more natural than what you get in the drive thru!

    1. They come out a little smaller than I'd like, but I bet you can find bigger tins. Plus it's a lot less time consuming than other methods!

    2. You should try the whoopie pie pan. Your eggs will be the same diameter of your muffins... but thinner. here is a link to amazon where you can purchase or search.. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B003YKGRBY/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?qid=1380001519&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX110_SY165

    1. Totally up to you!! Just make sure to not over cook your eggs! And the eggs when defrosted properly will be a bit on the juicy side. Not my thing, but my son doesn't mind!

  4. Great recipe idea. I've been looking for breakfast ideas that have lots of protein for my little ones minds to think clearly while in school. As a SAHM that homeschools we have a little less stressful "schedule", we will use the oven to warm them up. I've been reading through your previous posts and about you and read about the loss of your mom and your lifestyle change to healthier options all around for your family. Microwaves are destroying your food and undoing a lot of all the positive things you are doing. You might want to do some research there. http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/05/18/microwave-hazards.aspx
    We have been microwave-free for 6 years and haven't missed it at all. There was a slight adjustment period, but so glad we did it. Love all of your crock pot recipes and am definitely going to be trying some. Thanks!
