Breakfast "Cupcakes"

these are super easy and you can easily modify the recipe by adding your favorite egg toppings.

again - not a real recipe, but more a guideline.
sorry for anyone who wants exact recipes... that's just not how i roll.

what you'll need:

eggs (one egg for each cupcake you'll be making)
toppings - i like bacon and cheese but really you can toss whatever you like in there!
biscuit mix (optional)
splash of milk or cream

how to do it:

cook bacon so it is not soggy. i won't pretend that i don't sometimes cook it in the microwave.
crack eggs into bowl and whisk with some salt and pepper and a splash of milk
add in your bacon
pour/spoon into greased muffin pan
add grated or cubed cheese to the center of each cupcake (it will sink in and make a gooey delicious cheese center)

prepare the biscuit mix as directed (or make from scratch if you're feeling ambitious) and roll out
cut circles to fit on the top of each cupcake and carefully set on

bake at 325 for 20 minutes or until tops are golden and eggs are set.

i don't think i have ever made these for fernando (he's usually sleeping for breakfast) but i have made them for myself more times than i can count. i can guarantee that if i made these for fernando he would "ice" them with ketchup.

some possible mods:
sausage and peppers
jalapeno and cheddar
bacon, mushroom and cheese...
and on and on and on...

they're nothing fancy but they're fun!
