Texas is 100% different from where I grew up. That I think I can say with all certainty. Although it is 100% different, I still do love it. I of course miss the ocean and the trees and land that isn’t just flat – but Texas has its own beauty and its own opportunities. If it weren’t for Texas I wouldn’t have the job that I have, the family that I have or even the home that we have. Although I do love Cape Cod and it will always be “my home”, Texas is where our family began!
With that being said, there are many products that are made in Texas and are noted to be the food of Texans! One of the most recent ones being Lonestar Eggs!
Normally we would use whatever eggs we have around, but last time we went shopping we picked up Lonestar eggs – the only egg for a Texan (Laid by Texans, For Texans)! I may not be a true Texan – but Lennox and Kyle are Texan’s so that counts, right?
Eggs = Breakfast and we all know breakfast can get a little, or a lot, boring so this morning Lennox and I made some Baked Egg Muffins to try something different. She wanted to serve breakfast in bed to Kyle – and this was the prefect thing. It was really quick to put together, very little mess and perfect for both kids and adults.
Anyway, this is a super easy recipe and one that your children can help you with no problem! Here is how you make it.
Bacon & Cheese Baked Egg Muffins
- Lonestar Eggs
- Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Bacon Bits
STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350°. Using a nonstick spray of your choice, coat a muffin/cupcake tin.STEP TWO: Sprinkle the bottom of the muffin tin with Shredded Cheddar Cheese. Use as much or as little as you wish. The more cheese the better if you ask me!STEP THREE: Crack the eggs and put one egg into each muffin spot. STEP FOUR: Sprinkle a little more cheese on top and sprinkle bacon bits on top as well.
STEP FIVE: Put some salt and pepper (as much as you desire) on top of each egg muffin.STEP SIX: Bake in oven for 15 minutes. When they are done, they should look something like this.
These Bacon Egg and Cheese muffins were a big hit and they were gone before I knew it. There were no pots and pans to be hand washing, and that was the best part! No dishes for mom! Just pop the muffin tin in the dishwasher and you’re done with clean up. That seems simple enough right?
