Eggs, Not Just for Breakfast, Except When They Are

Breakfast for Dinner at the launchpad moved recently (to accommodate a friend's school schedule) to Tuesdays. While pancakes are the most common item served, we have had waffles and french toast in the rotation recently. There is talk of introducing some egg based products into the schedule as well (we will often have quiche the next day if there is leftover bacon).

Perhaps omelettes? Funny story . . . my sister and I were cleaning out my parent's house several years ago, and we disposed of an omelet pan that had clearly seen better days (and probably not seen the light of day in several years). But we got caught(? !) and had to try and replace it. Thanks eBay. Maybe we could have just downloaded this video instead.

If we are searching for additional egg products, I might try these - because everything is better with bacon. I "transcribed" the recipe from the video (linked above).

Bacon-Wrapped Eggs
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • 1lb. bacon
  • shredded cheese (cheddar probably works best here)
  • chopped fresh herbs (chive, dill, thyme, your choices)
Cook the bacon on medium heat until browned but not crisp. Set aside to drain and cool. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a muffin tin or ramekins with bacon slices. You may spray the tins / ramekins with non-stick spray. Cover bottoms with chunks of bacon. Crack one egg into each bacon cup. Season with salt and pepper. Top with cheese and herbs. Bake until set (approximately 15 minutes).

Of course, there used to be those times when we would go out for breakfast. But now all I want to do in the morning is sleep.

Funny, we're having eggs tonight for dinner. I'm making a strata with the leftover (homemade) rolls from Thanksgiving. I followed Rachael Ray's recipe from last month's magazine. But I substituted bacon for ham because I had it on hand. This summer when we had a lot of leeks, we made these. AMAZING! Though I did go out and buy a really deep muffin tin for the next time. Not sure how the kids feel about gruyere. ;)
