so i was trying to think of what words to write and say about this post…
the truth is i can not stand McDonalds…really all fast food grosses me out.
however the truth is when i’ve had one too many glasses of red wine my cure is a McDonald’s egg mcmuffin with a dt coke.
ok i said. there it is. my guilt. my truth. but geez seriously i don’t know what it is about it but it just makes me feel so much better.
and also another truth i love breakfast foods.
when i saw this recipe…which was actually years ago i was so excited to go out and buy an extra-large muffin tin…i like to call it Texas size.
Picky Palate was one of the first blogs I started following. Well actually i wasn’t even following. i would just go on and check her website every few days…I didn’t know what “following” was…
guilty plug – ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME? Plug in your email address and you will conveniently be sent an email when i write a new post…and you can find me on facebook
ok back to the recipe…i was happy to buy a new baking item…and then excited to make breakfast.
i leave it up to you if you wanna serve with juice or a dt coke
bacon, egg & cheese baked mcmuffin
- 6 thin slices bacon
- 3 english muffins (split in half)
- 6 Large farm fresh eggs
- 1 cup cheddar cheese (shredded)
|I like to bake my bacon in the oven (see I do some things sort of health...lol) ...so preheat your oven to 400 degrees. I place bacon on cookie cooling rack and place that on cookie sheet so the bacon grease can drip off. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until done to your likeness. When bacon is done set aside. Reduce oven temp to 350 degrees.|
|Press english muffins carefully into bottom of your Texas size muffin tin. Lay the bacon in the a circle shape around the muffin tin. If that is not working for you feel free to break in half and just lay it down flat. |
Place one cracked egg per muffin cup...I like to crack my egg in a seperate bowl then pour into the muffin tin to make sure no eggs shells. Sprinkle the tops with cheese...and if you like salt and pepper shake some on the top.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until egg is cooked through.
