Western Breakfast Bake
Revered Wyoming Chef, outdoor cooking expert, admired woodsmen, writer, and honored citizen.
Well, no excuses it had been 11 months since I have posted here. I hope you are following my other blogs and keeping in touch. I have been busy writing and publishing, you can find all five of my books here. Someday soon, I hope to put together a book of my recipes, who knows?
But enough of that – I have a new breakfast dish for you to try.
Like all of my other’s it is easy and doesn’t dirty too many dishes.
Western Breakfast Bake
Stuff you need – Ingredients
1. 6 eggs or a half dozen, whatever you have
2. ¼ cup milk or a touch less
3. Pepper – to taste
4. Bacon, 6 strips or a bunch of bits (I love bacon bits, taste good with just about anything, not so good with cereal, trust me on that one).
5. 5 English Muffins or biscuits (I have tried both, muffins are easier)
6. 4 slices of cheese, whatever you like – Please don’t use mozzarella, this is not Pizza – I prefer a medium cheddar
7. ½ teaspoon of baking powder
~That’s it, seven ingredients~
Spray or butter a cooking dish or pan – I use a glass pie plate. They are cool because they are excellent for cooking and you can see through them – sweet.
Split, and toast, 3 English muffins and place the six pieces around the bottom of the dish (Note – these need to be toasted first, or they will get mushy in the finished dish)
Put a bunch of butter on each one – yum! Not kidding
Sprinkle with a generous dose of bacon bits (I cover them) or put your 6 strips of bacon across the muffins. (Don’t forget to pre-cook the bacon, if you have them the bits are much better)
Scramble 6 eggs with the ¼ cup milk, baking powder, and pepper – I use a fork. Fun here to put on some music and dance around the kitchen while scrambling, fun and funny until the music picks up then it can cause a mess, I stick to a good version of some country swing
Pour mix over the muffins and bacon.
Cover with your four squares of cheese, I rip each into two or three pieces to make it all fit nicely
Bake in pre-heated 350-degree oven for 25-30 minutes, make sure the middle of the pan is solid – this will be the last bit to cook through.
The Muffins will float to the top and the eggs will find a way to get to the bottom of the pan, giving you a terrific looking breakfast casserole and easy too.
These are one of our favorite breakfasts. Did you notice, no salt? I figure the bacon will take care of that.
