Bacon egg and cheese please!

   Haven't posted a breakfast recipe in a while, have I? One of my favorite "breakfast-to-go" items is bacon, egg and cheese sandwiche made with a whole grain English muffin! I could actually eat it all day, all year around and probably I wouldn't get bored with it! Sometimes, when I crave it really, really bad I just stop by some fast-food place (don't judge me!) before work and get it. To save time, money, and calories I decided to make my own at home, portion it, and enjoy it every day at work! Here is the recipe (makes 10 servings):


*  12 oz smoked bacon
*  10 eggs
*  1 cup skim milk
*  1 cup shredded sharp cheddar
*  2 tbsp flour
*  salt and pepper


1. Cut bacon into small pieces and crisp in a pan for about 10 minutes. Transfer onto a paper towel to drain the grease and let it cool.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, flour, salt, and pepper. Add cooled bacon, transfer into a greased baking dish and bake at 375F for 20 minutes.
3. Cut into squares, portion, and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Serve with a whole grain English muffin and some ketchup if you like it!

   There is absolutely nothing better in the morning than a delicious egg sandwich. I don't know if you noticed, but I used a real bacon this time. I decided to try it out and I have to be honest, it tastes the same as turkey bacon to me (which has fewer calories), but it's your call.



  1. When does the cheese get added?

  2. We make this all the time with leftovers ! It's delicious !
