Christmas Breakfast & a Lot of Snow
We actually will have a white Christmas this year on the east coast, we've had a ton of snow this past week.
Here are 2 fantastic recipes for Christmas morning.
They are the two most popular and looked at on Stacey Snacks.
First, I want to say that when I posted the bacon and egg baskets last year, I received SO MANY emails and nice comments.......but I did receive some negative comments and nasty remarks on other sites saying "this is so unhealthy", "cholesterol killer", "artery clogger!!!", "this is disgusting".
Ok, before I post this again, and the hate mail comes in: I just want to say that this is a slice of lean bacon and ONE EGG. Nothing more. No butter, no cheese, nothing.
Live a little.
It's not going to kill you.
Everyone loves this recipe.
It just adds a little style to the usual bacon and eggs, and you can make it for a crowd for brunch.
Bacon & Egg Baskets:
Spray nonstick cooking spray in a 12 cup muffin tin.
Cook as many slices of bacon as needed, but only cook them half way.
Do not cook them crispy, only enough to get rid of some of the fat.
Drain bacon slices on paper towels.
When cool enough to handle, wrap a piece of bacon into a nest shape in each muffin well.
Next, crack a MEDIUM sized egg (don't use JUMBO or they will spill over) into each bacon basket.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper (I used Hawaiian red salt) and bake in a 375F oven for 10 minutes for runny eggs, or 12 minutes for set eggs.
You can also beat the eggs first then pour into the basket for a firmer quiche like presentation.
This second recipe is not a low fat one, but who cares? New Year's resolutions begin next week.
It's a bread pudding made with that fantastic Italian panettone.

Have a Merry Christmas!
