Breakfast Muffin "Egg McMuffins"

This is a FANTASTIC breakfast recipe that is actually pretty easy to do but makes you look like you are quite the chef. I used a Rachel Ray Recipe as my jumping off point and have refined it over the last couple of years. If you want to sound all fancy call it a "reconstructed egg sandwich" I call it "Egg McMuffin Muffins". Whatever you call it it's sure to please your breakfast bunch.

The below list makes 4 Muffins, Easy to Double, Triple Etc..


Butter (For Greasing the Pan)
4 Slices of White Bread
2 Slices Kraft American Cheese (Quartered)
2 Slices Canadian Bacon (Halved)
4 Eggs

Pre-Heat Oven to 350 Degrees

Generously Butter Muffin Pan

Use a Rolling Pin to Gently Flatten your Bread Slices

Cut Bread into Large Circles (I use a 4" Bowl as a Guide)
Then Cut in Half

Gently (you don't want holes) push 2 bread halves into
Muffin cup to create your Bread Shell

Brown 2 Slices of Canadian Bacon
(On Medium, One Minute Each side)

Press 1 1/4 slice American cheese in the bottom of your bread cup

Add 1/2 slice Canadian Bacon

Add an egg to each cup (it might overflow a bit, that's fine)

Bake 25 minutes ( Or until egg is fully set)

Add another 1/4 slice of american cheese and put back in the oven for a couple of minutes (until melted)

The bread gets Toasted while the Egg is Cooking and the Cheese gets melted...

Crappy Game but a SUPER Bowl anyway.....

Superbowl was weird this year. The whole thing sort of sneaked up on me. We were going to have a big shindig but I didn't get invites out and it looked impossible to plan. The weather was so bad on the east coast that they weren't positively saying that it would be on Sunday this year...(maybe Saturday, Maybe Monday...what?!?!). So we decided to go low-key this year, just have Mine and Jeff's parents over. I still decorated and had WAY too much food.

The game was a total bust. Regardless of who you were rooting for (we unfortunately wanted Denver to pull it off) the game stunk. The commercials were Eh, Halftime was okay but not brilliant. Overall it would have been pretty disappointing except the food was fantastic (Jeff even grilled!) the company was excellent and the kids were super cute.

 Next Year.... GO BEARS!!!!
