Eggs by the Dozen

This morning for breakfast I made a new recipe that I have been eager to try. I knew this one was going to be perfect for a large family, when I discovered it on my friend Debbie's blog -- Cheaper by the Baker's Dozen. She knows how to serve some delicious food at her house!

Debbie did not let me down! This was a real hit with my family, and I think it is going to make a perfect school day breakfast! Quick, easy, inexpensive, and a good way to get some protein into every one before they all head their separate ways, I am really "eggcited" about making these "Egg o' muffins" a few times a week!

Here are the directions:

1. Spray a muffin tin with some cooking spray, such as Pam.

2. Crack an egg directly into each muffin cup.

3. Spoon one teaspoon of half and half over top of each egg.

4. Sprinkle each egg with some grated cheddar cheese.

5. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes.

6. Pop eggs out of muffin tins onto plates. I plopped them on top of a piece of Canadian Bacon, for a Delicious, high protein breakfast!


EDITED:  I have started baking these at 400 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes.  I prefer the lower cooking temperature for my eggs.  At about 12 minutes, the yolk is just softly cooked and the white is  set.  Bake 15 minutes if you want them cooked a bit harder.

I may have to try these.....only add some chopped ham, onion, pepper, and maybe top on a biscuit or homemade toast!! :)

Thanks for linking up to Simply Made Home! My food and nut teacher in high school told us to put the canadian bacon or ham on the bottom and called these "Birds nests"!
