Who has time to make bacon and eggs in the morning? The kids have to get on the bus, you have to be out the door by a certain time to avoid the traffic and all you have time for is to pour the kids some cereal and yourself a cup of coffee. News Flash, you have started your day off poorly. Here is a quick recipe that will change how you start your day.
Make ahead egg bake: preheat oven to 350
3 splashes of whole milk/ or coconut milk
Cracked fresh black pepper
1 lb of good bacon cut into cubes
Grape tomatoes cut in quarters
Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat. Set aside on paper towels to drain excess grease. (Reserve grease from skillet for future meals)
Beat the eggs and milk together. Make sure all the yolks are broken and the egg whites are evenly beaten.
Pour egg mixture into a buttered baking dish. I use a 12×10. This will puff up as it bakes. Sprinkle the bacon cubes and tomatoes over top and bake for 30 mins or until cooked through.
Let cool and cut into single serving pieces. Now all you have to do in the morning is plop a serving on a microwave safe plate, heat for 1 minute and enjoy a healthy breakfast that will get you going and keep you going until snack time or lunch. Once you make this a few times you will get the hang of it and can add other things such as spinach, sausage, ham, peppers…whatever you like in your eggs.
I will make Lucy egg yolks with coconut milk from time to time. When I do I make sure to put the egg whites in the adult egg bake. Lucy typically enjoys her egg yolks with some fruit. Her recipe is easy.
3 Egg yolks
1 splash of coconut milk
A little bit of good bacon grease for the pan.
Melt bacon grease over medium heat. Pour egg yolk mixture into skillet and cook as you would scrambled eggs. Make sure they are cooked all the way but not crispy. They will cook up fast so don’t walk away.
If you make this Sunday afternoon with the kids you will be set for the week. This is one less thing you have to do during an already hectic time of the day. ENJOY!
