I don’t know if I ever mentioned in this blog, but my gorgeous, handsome, smart and charming son is the result of five years of infertility treatments, prayers and lots and lots of tears. But into my life came the most wonderful bundle of joy. He has been, without a doubt, the best kid any mom could ask for.
He is an easy kid to cook for, as well. He loves everything I cook. But every once in a while he will run across a recipe that he wants to try, and without fail, he knows it is something that I will like as well.
His latest discovery was something he found on Imgur. I don’t spend much time up there myself, although I do have an account, doing my crafts and projects as well as writing this blog take up a lot of my time! So, he brought this idea to me and asked if he could try it.
Here is the original Imgur post.
I couldn’t say ‘yes’ fast enough! He was even thoughtful enough to determine that we didn’t have all the necessary ingredients, he even went to the store and bought them! On his own dime! (He doesn’t generally spend his hard earned cash on groceries!)
So, here are the results:
Doesn’t that look like heaven? It is!
Essentially, you take a round of bread (just use a slice of bread and using a glass or jar, press into the bread making a round) and place in the bottom of each opening in a muffin tin. Then curl cooked bacon around the edge of each. Sprinkle cheese into the opening and then drop an egg into the cup. Season. Bake in a 400° oven for 18 minutes.
A couple of hints: using cooking spray in each opening before placing the bread round. Don’t completely cook the bacon or it won’t be pliable to bend around the tin’s curve. Use cheese of your choice, the original recipe used cheddar or jack, but we like monterrey cheese.
I considered using hash browns instead of bread, or maybe even biscuit dough (you know those tubes from Pillsbury). Even a slice of potato. Or instead of bacon, you could use a sausage patty. Or even adding already scrambled eggs instead of the uncooked egg (although I think you’d want to bake it less time). There are probably a hundred ways you could make this your own.
But the best thing is to get your own kid to make it for you and serve it up with a smile!
