Canadian Bacon & Egg cups.



The kids thought these were great.

You just place a slice of Canadian bacon/ham into the bottom of a muffin tin, crack and egg ontop of it, season to taste, sprinkle on some cheese. Bake at 350 for about 10-15 mins depending on how you like your eggs cooked.


Poached Egg on a Ciabatta Roll with bacon, cheese & tomato



egg
multigrain ciabatta roll
bacon
provolone cheese
tomato
butter
salt n pepper


My first time making a poached egg and eating one, so I went with simple. Tasted just as good as fried (well okay not just as good), Im glad I learned how to make it because it would be better for DH to eat then scrambled (with cheese) or fried egg, though I will have to come up with some spectacular presentation for him, and his will have to be cooked all the way.


To poach the egg, I just cracked an egg into a small bowl then slowly slid the egg into boiling water. Cook for 2-3 minutes (or til desired doneness, 3 mins made the white cooked and the yellow runny).

Toast ciabatta bread, butter it, place a slice of provolone cheese on the bottom, then two slices of bacon, a thinly sliced tomato and the poached egg. Season with salt & pepper.

Okay, one last dish, since my daughter wanted cereal for breakfast. Hubby got a deluxe taco breakfast.

Beef and cheese taco with fried egg...

Flour tortilla, topped with last night's leftover taco seasoned beef, some sour cream, sunny side up fried egg, green hot sauce, and cheddar cheese.

Lesha, what did you think of the egg cups. We were planning on doing that but ran out of time. Will have to do it later...

Angie, what did hubby think of the taco? Looks like it could be good!

I think this recipe isn't really worth all the work that went into it. However, if I were to make it again, I would use more egg. For being used in this challenge, the egg wasn't nearly as noticeable as I would have liked.

He loved it, though I will admit he stole some of my bacon and added it on top of everything else!

I made what we refer to as my "World Famous Egg Scramble". There are several different variations to this meal, so just use your imagination when making it.

First, I dice up potatoes, stir in some olive oil to coat them, add some diced onions, Italian seasoning and crushed red pepper (we like it hot). Stir that all up and toss it in the oven (I usually set it at 350* and it cooks while I do the rest. About 20 minutes maybe?) Then I dice up a couple green peppers (sometimes I also use red, yellow or orange bells), and cut up some mushrooms. In a separate bowl, I crack the eggs, add the milk and get that ready to go. When the egg is ready to go into the pan, I add the green peppers and onions to the potatoes that are already in the oven and let that continue to bake. I cook the scrambled eggs, and then when the potatoes and stuff is thoroughly cooked I mix them together and add some shredded cheese (whichever is your favorite....we usually use colby jack or a four cheese or mexican blend). The dish is now ready to serve. (In the past I have also added ham, sausage, ground turkey or ground beef to the dish. Just prepare the meat and stir it in when add the potato mixture.)

My family eats it just like this. I personally add some sour cream and salsa to mine which just makes it even better.

Today's breakfast...french toast and bacon.

I just used eggs and milk. I don't use measurements for my scrambled eggs or my french toast. I do everything by eye.

I used likely 6 eggs this morning and mixed them with about 1/2 to a cup of milk. Scrambled it up then dipped my bread in it.
Good thing I made so much each of my kids (2 and 3 years) ate 4 pieces of french toast! lol

My hubby's participating too. He made Egg Drop Soup:

Quote:
This is completely new to me. Have never even had it in a restaurant, so not sure how authentic it came out.

Started with 4 cups of chicken stock I had frozen. Added about 1 tsp tamari, a few drops of sesame oil, 1/2 tsp ground ginger, and 1/4 tsp onion powder. Brought to a boil, removed from heat, drizzled in 3 lightly beaten eggs. Garnished with two chopped green onions.

I love eggs, and have some good recipes that I wish I had had time to do this week. I did get a couple done, though!

Quick Crustless Quiche



8 slices bacon
4 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups milk

Cook and crumble bacon. Grease a 9 inch pie plate. Line the bottom of the pie plate with the cheese and crumbled bacon. Whisk remaining ingredients together and pour into pie pan. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes, until set.

We like onion to be very soft, so I precooked it in some of the bacon grease. I also used 2 extra slices of bacon, to use it up, and because we love bacon I made this for dinner, but it would totally work for breakfast or lunch too.

Breakfast Muffins



1 pound breakfast sausage
1/8 cup minced onion
1 (12 ounce) can refrigerated biscuit dough
3 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese

Cook sausage and onion. Drain. Separate the dough into 10 individual biscuits, flatten each and line cups of a muffin pan with them. Distribute sausage mixture between the cups. Mix eggs and milk and divide between cups. Top with cheese. Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes, until set.

These work great to make ahead and freeze or refrigerate for a microwavable grab and go breakfast.

Okay, so it may be too late to get these on here, but I finally got them uploaded.
My egg dishes this week were:

Egg Cups

This is not my picture. I forgot to take one of this and the egg wreath. They turned out okay, although a few of the bacon pieces burnt in the oven. They were good, but not worth the effort. So I doubt I'll make them again.
Ingredients

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
8 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
6 slices bacon
6 large eggs
Coarse salt and ground pepper
Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, 20 to 25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.

#2: Egg Wreath

Again, not my picture. Mine didn't turn out nearly as pretty as this. This was a HUGE hit in my house. We needed to make two to feed us all. I will be keeping this recipe and using it as a regular in our home now.

1 can of crescents 8count (we use reduced fat)
5 large eggs (we use cholesterol fat free egg product)
1 cup of shredded Colby and monterey jack cheese (we use 2% reduced fat cheese)
8 slices of fully cooked bacon (I buy the bacon that is fully cooked from the store)

Preheat oven to 375 F degrees. Scramble your eggs on stove top. Lay out crescents
on a parchment lined pizza pan. Lay a piece of bacon along each crescent. Sprinkle cheese on top (making a circle of cheese), scrambled eggs on that, then fold the crescents rolls in to make the wreath. Sprinkle with more cheese. Bake for about 17 minutes, or until golden brown.

#3 Fried eggs.

Nothing fancy, just eggs and bacon for breakfast.

#4 Mexican Quiche

Oh my goodness. This was amazing!! I've never made a quiche before, but it looked good. I was weary, as I don't really like scrambled eggs, and thought it might be like that. Sooo wasn't! I had to alter it a bit, as I didn't have all the ingredients. I used Salsa Verde sauce instead of green chilies, and used taco seasoning in the meat as well. I also made a homemade crust instead of a store bought one. Everyone loved it, and I'll have to make it again!

I'll give credit this time since I never stated the thread was closed to submissions. No more submissions allowed for week 1.
