French muffin breakfast treat!

13 Feb

There is a liitle problem with today’s post – the reason? I cooked a marvelous, beautiful meal last night ( if I reaaaaalllly have to blow my own trumpet),but due to the guests arriving early, us having to keep our little home neat for property viewers ALL the time, I really didn’t have time to stop and take photos.

However, I will tell you about what I made – roasted rosemary potatoes, braised lamb shank, mixed roasted vegetables and a rocket salad with pomegranite, cucumber,cherry tomatoes, parma ham and balsamic glaze. Yum! Finished off with key lime pie! It was simply beautiful.

So this is where my post comes in for today – all the food and wine, I really was exhausted. I woke up with a rumbling tummy, screaming for egg. Yes, that does sound very funny. So, instead of french toast, I wanted muffins, something different, with a more “crunchy” taste.  I wanted to indulge in something without too much indulging ;-p  I was very happy with the outcome 🙂

French Muffin Breakfast treat

4 english muffins, halved

4 eggs

salt & black pepper

6 rashers of bacon

syrup/honey/ figs in syrup to serve


Heat a non-stick frying pan and add some butter to the pan. Whisk your eggs together and season with salt & pepper. Now dip your muffins one by one in the egg. Squeeze it a little bit so it soaks up the egg. Place in the frying pan and let brown on both sides. As you put your last few muffins in the pan, place your bacon around them.

Remove the muffins when done, but keep on cooking the bacon until slightly crisp. Now, use the lefover egg you used for dipping, and make scrambled egg in the same pan. Do not cook too long, eggs only need a few minutes. Now drizzle your muffins with syrup/honey/ or cut pieces of fig and place on your muffin and top it off with the crispy bacon. This certainly is a wonderful sunday morning treat!! Especially if your eggs are called “happy egg”.  Enjoy!!
