Out came the ingredients!
Egg Bake muffins:
salt & pepper
Lots of great fillings for our egg bake. That was the easy part! How to assemble them was where Mr. Bacon and I had differences. His idea was to layer the ingredients in the muffin pan and then add the scrambled egg over the top. Not bad but I thought it might be better mixing all ingredients in a bowl and pouring them in the pan. Who's idea was better? We'll find out. We figured we'd try out different types of egg bake in each muffin cup. So we got busy mixing.
I mixed up all my ingredients in my bowl, and Mr. Bacon got busy layering. Each has one egg mixed with milk and seasonings, hash browns, mushrooms, bacon, sausage, and cheese. Make sure before you put anything into your muffin pan, you grease it well first.
Here they are side by side. They don't look much different right now.
After seeing them side by side, Mr. Bacon did admit he thought mine might turn out better. So we decided to mix up a few more of the mixed one's since Bacon Bit could eat three all by himself! During my mixing, I was a bit distracted and I noticed I didn't add in the hash browns. No problem, we decided it would still make a good experiment for us. We filled the two middle cups full and decided to only fill the other one 2/3's full to see if that made any difference.
egg bake recipe I have. I mixed up one egg, a splash of milk, seasonings, bacon, sausage, and about 1./3 of a slice of bread diced up. Mixed it all together and dumped it in. Now they are all ready for the oven.
Wonder how do they look from the inside? Delicious!
The best thing with these, is you can specialize them to everyone's liking. All the kids except Bacon Bit think we are poising them when we add mushrooms to anything. So we can leave them out when we make their muffins. I can't wait to remake these this weekend and let the kids design their own eggs.
As for that frozen egg muffin, it re-heated perfect! About a minute in the microwave and you have egg bake for a busy morning. We waited to try it until Bacon Jr. was home and let him have a say in how it tasted too and he can't wait to have them on busy school mornings. And he's excited to help make them next time too! And what did Bacon Bit think of them?
