Baked Egg Muffins at My Cooking Quest

September 10th, 2008 | Posted in Uncategorized | Comments Off

My Cooking Quest is an interesting food blog with a lot to offer. There’s plenty of interesting recipes and they often include stories from the author’s restaurant, DISH Cafe & Catering in Reno Nevada.

There’s everything from Baking Bacon (Oven Frying), which is a great tip for preparing bacon for a group of people (Beats the daylights out of doing lots of it in a skillet.), to a great recipe called Baked Eggs, Toast and Bacon in One Package which amounts to a great looking Baked Egg Muffin that I want to try sometime soon.

While the oven is preheating to 375 degrees butter a muffin tin.

1. Then cut the edges off of a piece of bread so that it’s about four inches square and then butter it.

2. Gently press the bread slice into the bottom of a muffin cup so that the edges are pointing up. Bake it like that until the bread is just starting to crisp. That should be about 3 to 6 minutes depending on how thick the bread is.

3. Once the bread is crisp, remove the tin from the oven and place some bacon, prosciutto, ham or even crumbled sausage on the bottom of the cup. Then crack an egg into the cup and season to taste with a bit of salt and pepper. Pour just a bit of Heavy cream or half and half on top of the egg and cover with your favorite cheese (I’d use either cheddar, swiss, motzarella or colby jack).

4. Lather, rinse, repeat for as many as you want to make.

Put the muffin tin back into the oven and bake for 10 to 14 minutes until the egg whites reach the consistency you like. Remove them with a fork, garnish with some chives and you’ve got a great change of breakfast pace.
