It's a Steal Series - Breakfast Muffins


Hey Everyone, 

We start our new series this week - "It's a Steal"...yup we get to "steal" or "knock off" a fellow blogger's idea, and show you what we come up with. So get thinking of what you're gonna do and who you're gonna knockoff, for our next Link Party. But be sure to ask permission where necessary and always provide link backs.
 
Here at Inspiration Cafe we are going to steal ideas from each other...fun right?


My mission this week was to knock off a post (any post) from Sweet Little Blue Bird, which is Mary's blog. Hmm... so many yummy dishes, how was I supposed to choose? It wasnt easy!!!

Finally it was getting darker and the family were getting snappy with hunger, so I quickly decided to make them breakfast for dinner! Good thinking right? Who could go wrong with eggs?

They are awesome!!! 

Click here for the recipe on Mary's blog.

Mary was able to cook a whole egg in the middle of her muffins, but as I only have a standard sized muffin tin, I mixed my eggs as if to scramble them and poured equal amounts into my bread cups.  
I didn't have bacon so I added ham slices to the top.

They really are THAT good!!! 
Sean has decided I need to make these every weekend! Which is perfectly fine by me - tasty, nutritious and easy!
YUM!


 I was left with quite a bit of bread - with missing centres, so as an experiment I dropped a slice of the bread (lightly buttered on both sides) into the fry pan, cracked an egg into the center and while it was cooking, I added a good sprinkle of cheese on the top with ham pieces.
 I was really excited that it did NOT make a huge mess!


Sean was even more excited to get to eat my experiment! His verdict? Really good!!! 
He said it was like french toast with cheese and bacon...Umm..Yummy!

Next week Mary will be knocking Danni off! We are so excited to see what she comes up with.


Take care and have a great week, don't forget to follow us on Facebook,
