These egg muffin beauties are as delicious as they look. When I told my 10 year old nephew about them, he said “what, like a McDonald’s egg McMuffin’, to which I was fuming, more that McDonald’s had stolen my idea. I went for tradional ‘fry up’ ingredients of bacon, sausage and mushroom, with, of course, some chilli jam and some sunflower seeds sprinkled on the top, I am very aware that the last two ingredients aren’t going to be added at a greasy spoon cafe, but in my household this would be the norm. My lovely friend also said that she does a variation that she freezes and quickly pops in the microwave before doing the school run and dashing out for work, impressive Mum skills right there. Plus I’d serve these if you have a house full of guests all wanting breakfast, they will be impressed by the fanciness plus you can be smug at not slaving over a hot stove serving individual full English’s. You can just pop them in the middle of the table for your guests to devour.
If you have any left overs they are great for up 2-3 days later. Lush right? Plus there are many variations that you can do and play about with. My other fav is goats cheese and mint, yum yum. Don’t bother using any butter etc to line the tins, so long as you have non-stick muffin tins.
6 free range eggs
4 mushrooms, cut up into small pieces
6 chipolata sausages, cut into small pieces
6 rashers of bacon, get some scissors and cut up into small pieces
Dollop of chilli jam in each
Sprinkle of sunflower seeds on each muffin before cooking
Cut up all the ingredients into small pieces, I use a pair of scissors for this part.
Place the sausages in a frying pan, for 3 minutes, followed by the bacon and the mushrooms. They all take about 10 minutes max in total to cook.
Whisk 6 eggs and add some pepper.
Then add the mixture, filling about half way, then top up to nearly th stop of the muffin tin.
Add a dollop of chilli jam and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds.
Bake for 15 minutes on gas mark 220 deg C, until egg is golden brown around the edges and fully cooked inside.
Get the out by hinging them out with a spoon underneath.
